Fugue announced cloud-native technology that manages the full lifecycle of cloud infrastructure to enterprise IT standards.
Fugue operates as the foundation layer for cloud-based enterprise application platforms, offering developers the ability to program and operate their entire cloud infrastructure across compute, storage, network, and data services. Following creation of the required cloud infrastructure, Fugue then automates the enforcement of corporate governance, compliance policies, and change controls.
Fugue consists of:
- Fugue Compositions, created using Ludwig, a modular, compiled language designed for declaring cloud infrastructure and policies as code. Enterprise IT groups use Ludwig to define a set of cloud infrastructure libraries for specific cloud application requirements. These libraries can be shared and enforced across the organization, ensuring consistency in how cloud resources are consumed.
- The Fugue Conductor, an orchestration engine that runs within the customer’s cloud account and operates as the “kernel” for cloud environments, continuously automating and enforcing infrastructure and policies. The Conductor, activated via the Fugue CLI, constantly checks running resources and reconfigures them if changes occur that are inconsistent with Ludwig definitions, preventing configuration and compliance drift.
Because Fugue features a language designed for declaring cloud infrastructure via provider APIs, there are no “black box” abstractions and management constraints. “Fugue is designed to support legacy applications migrated from the data center, today’s cloud-native applications, and future cloud services that we can’t even predict at this time,” said Fugue Co-founder and CEO Josh Stella.
“For enterprise IT groups to successfully manage a large collection of cloud resources assigned to different business units, across numerous applications, all at different points in their lifecycle, simply hiring more and more smart people isn’t enough. Infrastructure management today requires that companies empower their smart people with a smarter, more dynamic system such as Fugue,” added Stella.
When managing cloud workloads, most IT organizations attempt to adapt infrastructure management tools designed for traditional, static, on-premise data center environments. Today’s cloud environments, however, are dynamic and elastic, with resource creation and teardown frequency making manual tracking and administration unworkable. Fugue provides a way to design and validate an infrastructure definition in design time and then leverage a runtime component to ensure that all cloud resources are consistent with that definition, with correction executed should resources drift away from the original definition.
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud service provider abstracts the underlying IT infrastructure and provides services programmers leverage for running their applications. Fugue operates as the layer between the cloud and the services that further automate the deployment and management of middleware, databases and other services that support applications. Easy to adopt and use, Fugue is widely compatible with existing tools and practices. It streamlines configuration management, container orchestration and CI/CD workflows.
“We are entering a new era of cloud computing. The digital economy is driving cloud adoption, yet cloud management technologies have not kept pace with demand for the cloud. We can no longer use point solutions and disparate tools designed for the data center to operate cloud infrastructure. This is where Fugue comes in. Specifically, Fugue allows teams to build, manage and enforce their cloud by declaring what they need and managing infrastructure as processes,” explained Stella. “Running in the cloud at scale is hard. Fugue makes it simpler.”
