I think that it isn't just a set of tools, but a set of mindsets and experience patterns. Ops people spend a lot of time thinking about stability, persistence, and safety, and that's not always something that we reward in developers.

Just as devs learn patterns for how to build and architect systems that don't take up too much memory or have message collisions, ops folks learn about patterns of storage, single points of mechanical or network failure, or overusage threat profiles.
