Agile Stacks Debuts Early Release of DevOps Automation Service
December 14, 2017

Currently in early release, Agile Stacks DevOps automation service offers a DevOps-first architecture out of the box that provides enterprises the automation to deploy their selection from 30-plus cloud and DevOps components within minutes.

Because Agile Stacks lets organizations choose among popular, best-of-breed products that are pre-tested, integrated and work together from the instant they are deployed, technology teams can confidently use the tools that best fit their needs. No longer do app development and DevOps teams need to struggle with consistency and stability across development, test and production since Agile Stacks cloud automation templates provide reliable and repeatable deployment of technology in any environment.

Agile Stacks are initially available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), providing enterprises the ability to deliver applications and microservices on AWS cloud stacks that support the agility, scalability and reliability required for today’s digital businesses.

“Enterprises face a rapidly evolving, digitally driven business environment in which they will either emerge as disruptors or risk becoming the disrupted. However, companies too often find themselves spending anywhere from 6 to 24 months putting into place the cloud infrastructure that will power their digital solutions,” said John Mathon, Agile Stacks co-founder and CEO. “With our Agile Stacks DevOps automation service, enterprises can get full-function DevOps cloud stacks that use their preferred tools up and running in minutes. As a result, these businesses gain the agility to get to market faster than ever with the innovative new apps and services that will give them a competitive edge.”

Agile Stacks are built to support DevOps in the cloud, providing continuous integration/continuous development (CI/CD) from day one while implementing a flexible toolchain that standardizes DevOps processes and tools. Delivered as DevOps as a service, Agile Stacks applies best practices for security, automation, and management, enabling organizations to have a DevOps-first architecture that is ready for teams to build or copy a service into immediately across consistent development, test and production stacks. This enables enterprises to focus on implementing the operational pieces their solutions while reducing their need for DevOps resources to support the infrastructure and DevOps cloud stacks.

The cornerstone of the Agile Stacks cloud automation Service is the DevOps Control Plane, which simplifies stack configuration, allows IT teams to create a standardized set of cloud-based environments, and improves visibility into cloud costs. Using the Control Plane, developers can take advantage of templates to configure a stack that incorporates their preferred tools. The patent pending cloud automation hub (SuperHub) within the Control Plane then employs a Hub model for automatic execution of the scripts to run the stacks, eliminating the complexity and vulnerabilities associated with manual execution.

Additionally, using the Control Plane, IT administrators can properly secure all configuration management environments and continuous delivery pipelines. To ensure security of DevOps pipeline, single sign-on (SSO), role-based access control, and secret management are enabled for all tools in the DevOps toolchain, including Kubernetes, Jenkins, Spinnaker, monitoring, and log management. Stack automation ensures that these tools are kept up-to-date and tested frequently.

“Companies like Google have set the hallmark for Infrastructure as Code automation, but few enterprises have the extensive resources or knowledge of best practices to replicate Google’s success,” said Igor Mameshin, Agile Stacks co-founder and CTO. “Now, with machine generated code and automation built into the technology behind our Agile Stacks DevOps automation platform, companies can quickly and simply configure stacks to get the DevOps-first cloud architecture they need. We also continuously patch, upgrade and test the tools available with our stacks, so enterprises can take advantage of the latest technology advances, while knowing their cloud stacks will run predictably and reliably.”

Availability

The early release of Agile Stacks is now available for beta testing with several early adopter customers.
