GitOps is a fast-growing technology movement that has become a hot topic in the Cloud Native community.
The concept originated in a blog post from the software consultancy Weaveworks in 2017 entitled ‘GitOp —Operation by Pull Request’.
The word itself combines the name of the source-control tool (Git), and its application to software operations (Ops).
GitOps seeks to reduce load on operational teams by leveraging key features of Git that make reasoning about software delivery and maintenance easier.
Since its inception, GitOps has grown as a movement alongside related technologies, including Kubernetes Terraform, ArgoCD, FluxCD,and JenkinsX.
