Electric Cloud Announces New Version of ElectricFlow
November 07, 2016

Electric Cloud announced a new version of ElectricFlow that allows enterprises to safely deploy microservices and containers at scale in large, enterprise environments.

DevOps teams can now streamline and simplify processes to get containerized applications up and running, easily promote applications across different container environments, and gain much-needed visibility into application pipelines – both traditional and microservices/containers-based – through a single pane of governance.

“Our customers are rapidly adopting new technologies and architectures – like containers and microservices – as part of their DevOps initiatives. However, these approaches pose challenges in terms of operations, governance and orchestration - given the complex, large-scale, hybrid environments that these organizations need to support,” said Steve Brodie, CEO of Electric Cloud. “Often, when deploying containerized workloads or microservices into legacy production environments, teams find it difficult to coordinate their releases. ElectricFlow easily and safely manages containers and microservices throughout the software delivery lifecycle to support legacy or traditional monolithic applications, hybrid data centers and clouds, and large-scale infrastructure requirements.”

ElectricFlow is an end-to-end DevOps Release Automation platform to let Developer, QA and Operations personnel deploy microservices to their preferred container infrastructure or cluster manager solution (such as Google Container Engine, Amazon Container Service, or Kubernetes) without requiring any knowledge about the underlying integrations. This allows teams to coordinate and manage a mix of monolithic application and microservices releases across legacy or CD-style pipelines, into both on-premises and cloud environments. Additionally, the model-based approach is agnostic of container environments or cluster orchestration solutions, and enables easy portability between providers.

“Enterprise teams have never faced so much complexity or choice as part of the software delivery lifecycle,” said Brodie. “ElectricFlow now allows customers to future-proof their process, and consolidate control over bi-modal pipelines, delivering monolithic and microservices-based applications to both cloud and on-premises infrastructure.”

The new ElectricFlow with Microservices and Container Deployment support is now available through Invitation Program, and will be generally available in December 2016.

The general consensus tends to be that in the world of agile and DevOps, ITSM teams are increasingly being left behind. But the truth is, in more forward-thinking IT organizations, this isn’t the case. The fact is that ITSM is playing, or at least should play, a growing role in support of agile and DevOps initiatives. But this role still remains limited due to the fact that DevOps teams, and their management, are (more often than not) leaving them out as a tool of choice ...

The push to make banking products digitally ready (and very quickly) has spurred the old “buy vs. build” debate in bank IT departments: Should we build our own software from scratch in-house? Or do we buy off-the-shelf solutions from third-parties? And while this dichotomy may have been a suitable mentality years ago at the start of the digital transformation revolution in banking, it simply no longer fits with the reality of today's more complex development landscape ...

What to automate? Which parts of the delivery process are good candidates? Which applications will benefit from automation? At first, those sound like silly questions. Automate all your repetitive processes. If you think that you'll do the same thing manually more than once, automate it. Why would you waste your creative potential and knowledge by doing things that are much better done by scripts? Yet, an average company does not adhere to that logic. Why is that? ...
