Fugue announced availability of the free version of its flagship cloud orchestration product, Fugue.
Fugue simplifies common challenges enterprises face when operating in the cloud and mitigates the need for deep domain expertise required to manage massive infrastructure complexity and ensure regulatory compliance.
Fugue provides DevOps engineers with the ability to program and orchestrate the full lifecycle of their entire Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure service stack across compute, network and storage in a systematic and scalable manner.
“The free version of Fugue is a fast and frictionless entry point for developers and cloud engineers to begin to easily experience the true benefits of the cloud,” said Fugue Co-founder and CEO Josh Stella. “It is meant to add immediate value to individuals who provision, maintain, operate and terminate cloud environments on a routine basis.”
The free version of Fugue is ideal for development, testing, and staging environments, and for those just getting started with the cloud. A single user can provision and orchestrate multiple cloud environments in an AWS account and Fugue actively manages infrastructure state and corrects for configuration drift. Free Fugue comes with email support and online documentation. There is an option to increase the level of support at-cost.
“There is broad agreement that the future of IT is cloud computing—Fugue is right in the middle of that future,” said Peter Christy, Research Director with 451 Research. Fugue is currently working with Fortune 100 customers to bring advanced cloud operations capabilities in the areas of team collaboration and next-generation enforcement of regulatory compliance and custom policies to market in early 2017.
Fugue works with today’s workloads and DevOps toolchains and significantly simplifies a wide range of cloud-native use cases, including immutable infrastructure, container-based and serverless cloud services, microservices and blue/green deployments.
Fugue consists of three primary components: The Fugue Conductor, a cloud-side system for provisioning and continuously enforcing cloud infrastructure; the Fugue CLI for sending commands to the Conductor; and Ludwig, a compiled, type-safe domain-specific language for composing and validating cloud infrastructure-as-code. Fugue ships with a standard library which includes simple abstractions for declaring a wide variety of cloud infrastructure service configurations.
