Although not officially coined until 2009, DevOps ideals have been [explicitly discussed since at least 2006](http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=1142065). Recently, however, the term “DevOps” has [gained increasing popularity](http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=devops) across a variety of fields and industries.
