GitOps is an approach to managing IT infrastructure and applications where all configuration and deployment is controlled through Git repositories and pull requests. It is based on the principles of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and DevOps, with an emphasis on defining the state of infrastructure and applications in a Git repository as the source of truth. Initially it has been introduced by weaveworks.


GitOps is used to automate, simplify, and standardize the deployment and management of infrastructure and applications. By using Git as a central location for configuration files, teams can track, monitor, and version changes, resulting in greater traceability and control over the development and deployment process. In addition, GitOps enables efficient collaboration between development, operations and security teams because all changes to the infrastructure and applications are transparent and traceable.


GitOps offers several advantages over traditional deployment methods. First, using Git as a central control plane results in improved visibility and control over the entire development and deployment process. Second, GitOps enables faster iteration and delivery of changes because infrastructure changes can be easily managed through pull requests and continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines. Third, GitOps promotes best security practices such as automated compliance checks and audits because all changes to infrastructure and applications are stored in a central, versioned repository. By implementing GitOps, teams can improve the efficiency, reliability, and security of their software delivery and take full advantage of the benefits of DevOps and continuous delivery.
