xLM for DevOps - Introducing vCD (Validated Continuous Delivery)

The main objective of this post to answer the following questions.  I know a picture is worth a thousand words and so I will do this with illustrations.

  1. Can "Validation" and "DevOps" be used in the same sentence (like vCD - Validated Continuous Delivery)?

  2. Is DevOps a viable model for validated apps in GxP Environments?

  3. How can one ensure the "validation fidelity" in a DevOps environment?

Continuous Qualification for AWS or Microsoft Azure - How is it done?

The question is "Can Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure be qualified so that I Life Science companies can run validated apps on it?"   

Cloud releases updates and changes at such great velocities that leaves all validation specialists continuously wondering on how to qualify it.  Traditional strategies including GAMP 5 was never designed to address continuous changes.  These models were designed for a "waterfall" world and not an "agile" one.  It is not possible to qualify an infrastructure where changes are released without release notes with such an outdated mindset and toolset.
