Flexibility and governance
at your fingertips
Building the right stack can be complicated
And it’s riddled with other issues: it’s not very user-friendly and it can be hard to get custom configuration just right. Service Catalog seeks to overcome this by providing a catalog of pre-designed, pre-configured stacks. Pick one and away you go.
Offering your users service templates makes sense, but as it stands today, the process isn’t user-friendly. The least-effort approach is to create custom templates and store them on Git where everyone can access them. As soon as people start wanting changes or modifications, however, this low-effort approach gets complicated.
Service catalog was created with this in mind. We wanted to give users a choice when choosing new resources while ensuring that they exercise that choice with maximum governance. It’s a multi-cloud service that uses a GitOps approach to ensure that experts have access to what they need, but that everyone respects best practice and compliance.
