"DevOps" here, by which I mean an IT Ops Manager/Linux Admin/Network Admin doing this for more than a decade.

Nothing you described is outside of the realm of what your typical linux admin does. I don't have to be a senior python dev to do my job, and I've managed 5500+ virtual machines by myself (puppet/chef, bash, some python, persistent data/object storage).

Agree with the author; just shoving more hats onto less people.
