Cycloid DevOps Framework

Eases the DevOps approach & the Cloud adoption

All you need in one place. Own your automation. No locking. Embed Open Source. Fully interoperable.

Our approach

Things move fast in IT, but not all. Brilliant people working together produce great outcomes. Our DevOps framework simplifies the way people use technology and Cloud. Regardless of skill set, we help them work smarter and contribute to a projectIt ensures both the flexibility needed by end-users and the governance required by DevOps. Those factors remain and will remain key to success.

Because we’ve been in the business for some time, we develop Cycloid keeping in mind the needs and difficulties we and our clients face. We’ve faced the challenges of big organizations, the need to converge in terms of tools, access, technologies, … This led us building our framework to help structure the DevOps approach, communicate more efficiently, give visibility on processes and streamline our daily work. We eat our own food. We embrace DevOps and our framework is developed by DevOps to spread it.

automation

Automate everything

We always aim 100% of automation while keeping critical step manually validated, in order to avoid human mistakes and make sure the configuration is known by everyone at any time.

centralize

Centralize workflows

By centralizing projects, logs, events and application deployment with a common view, we managed to eliminate historical collision when working together.

reproducible

Reproducible

We provide stacks: a generic reusable template based on an IaC approach; stacks are controlled and reproducible at any time by relying heavily on versioning and automation of their technologies.

autonomy

Autonomy

Give access and permissions to more people to perform everyday tasks, by abstracting the logic for them thus avoid never-ending back-and-forth between teams/customers.

Best practices

Best practices

Nowadays we are facing more and more tools, as well as more and more ways of working with them. Therefore we encourage and promote best practices to ease projects management, ultimately helping save time and future evolutions.

TERRACOGNITA

TerraCognita is a tool we released in open source that allows you to plug to a cloud provider account and get a complete mapping of your deployed infrastructure. We generate Infra as Code from this so you can actually just run it to adopt an IaC approach.

Infra View

INFRA VIEW

Use Infra View to get a visual representation of the infrastructures deployed on your project's different environments and inspect Terraform State information for each instance.

STACKCRAFT

In case you need to create a new infrastructure, StackCraft is a designing tool integrated into our framework that lets you visually draw your infrastructure and get IaC on the fly. It provides variables to make the infrastructure templates extendable and parametrable. Whether you want to draft a solution for a customer and complete the details later, or define your entire infrastructure configuration, StackCraft allows you to do so in an intuitive way, easing some aspects such as connectivity, and giving you live view on the Terraform code you are generating.

StackCraft

Build

When you design an infrastructure, you create what we call a stack. It's a generic definition that can cover infrastructure, but also other configuration management and pipeline you may need.

Most of our stacks use Terraform, Ansible and Concourse but you are free to integrate the technology that you prefer to use. 

Service catalogs are collections of stacks, stored using your git repository. This brings you the benefits of version control and enables reusability and factorization. Create a catalog of stacks that fits your needs and apply them consistently across your projects to ensure respect of best practices.

We variabilize our stacks to make sure you can easily rely on the same infrastructure, while managing them independently and adjusting them based on your environments needs.

Stacks
Pipeline

Orchestrate everything through our managed Concourse pipelines, including real-time monitoring of your CI/CD workflows that are visually intuitive and fully configurable. Provide a visual representation of the overall process and display detailed information for each step.

Let everyone in your organization know what's going on, and provide details for concerned users.

Run

Relying on those methods makes things easier once your projects go live, but the work is far from being done. Thus, we provide with a set of tools to make your adoption of DevOps quicker and more secure:
