Bring an end to sub-par deployment
Control plus accessibility makes
for better deployment
Faster delivery needs more balanced thinking
Savvy teams seek continuous deployment and it makes sense - it’s the key to faster time to market. In traditional organizations, however, it’s often stymied by expertise-based silos and ops’ fear of inexperienced techs wreaking havoc in the infra. Both these factors conspire to slow down and impede delivery, which ends up actually increasing time to market.
Cycloid knew we needed to find a way around this if we wanted to genuinely help companies bring DevOps thinking to the deployment process. This is how we achieved it.
Governance is built in from the ground up, so by the time techs are interacting with the infra, their limits are already set.
Simple, intuitive features help even inexperienced devs interact with tools, cloud, and automation without worrying about breaking anything.
Combining control and accessibility facilitates true cross-team contribution regardless of role, easing ops’ lives by eliminating repetitive tasks and tickets.
Stacks ensure flexible deploys while maintaining governance.
A stack is a generic definition that covers infrastructure, configuration management, and pipeline: Terraform, Ansible, and Concourse. Ensure best practice by creating a catalog of stacks that fit your needs and using them consistently across projects and teams. You can store open-source collections of stacks - called catalog repositories - on your git repository. This gives you version control and enables reusability and factorization. Soon you’ll be able to use your catalog repositories in the command line, giving you an open-source way to simplify new stack creation.
StackForms allow users to choose environment variables from a pre-approved list.
StackForms conceals brains and beauty. Behind an attractive, easy-to-use dropdown menu is a powerful tool offering environment configuration variables that have already been chosen and approved by your DevOps engineers and systems architects. Users are free to create environments independently, but DevOps retains governance and compliance at all times.
Infra Import allowing you to rapidly industrialize your deployments by automatically creating IaC
Infra Import is our infrastructure-as-code generator based on our open-source tool, TerraCognita. It connects to your manually-deployed cloud infrastructure and automatically create your Terraform file and related Git modules, helping you scale efficiently, in a reproducible and controlled manner, across all your environments.
StackCraft, the cloud designer, simplifies Infrastructure as Code generation and helps ensure best practice.
StackCraft is a cloud designer that lets you drag and drop cloud services and generate infra as code on the fly. Whether you want to draft a solution from scratch or reuse/modify an existing one, StackCraft speeds up Infrastructure as Code adoption by making the process easier while maintaining best practice.
Concourse offers a flexible and cross-compatible CI/CD pipeline.
Concourse allows you to centralize all deployments in one tool and easily see the pipeline and every task it contains, no matter what your technical background. Everything stays up to date, and the pipeline can be easily modified, in the event you need to make changes.
