There is a growing interest to adopt vendor-driven DevOps tools in organizations. However, it is not clear which tools to use in a reference architecture which enables the deployment of the emerging IoT applications to multi-cloud environments. A research-based and vendor-neutral DevOps reference architecture (DRA) framework has been developed to address this critical challenge. The DRA framework can be utilized to architect and implement the DevOps environment that enables automation and continuous integration of software applications deployment to multi-cloud. This paper confers and discusses the evaluation outcomes of the DRA framework at the DigiSAS research Lab. The evaluation outcomes present practical evidence about the applicability of the DRA framework. The evaluation results also indicate that the DRA framework provides general knowledge-base to researchers and practitioners about the adoption DevOps approach in reference architecture design for deploying IoT-applications to multi-cloud environments.
