Docker has extended its strategic collaboration with Microsoft to simplify code to cloud application development for developers and development teams by more closely integrating with Azure Container Instances (ACI).
Fugue announced major product enhancements to its cloud infrastructure management platform.
With the launch of the Fugue Team Conductor, the company delivers centralized control, advanced governance, and secure collaboration for operating on the cloud at scale. The new release extends Fugue’s code validation, access control, multi-account management, and continuous policy enforcement capabilities to offer customers an end-to-end, next generation cloud operations solution.
“Every enterprise that scales out its cloud operations runs into the same challenges of managing ever-increasing complexity and ensuring governance, resulting in wasted spending, increased risk, and agility loss,” said Josh Stella, Founder and CEO of Fugue. “Fugue collapses the complexity of managing the cloud at scale and enforcing compliance and security policies at every step of cloud operations. Fugue doesn’t force customers to make tradeoffs between control, speed, and spend.”
With the Fugue Team Conductor, customers can centralize the management of multiple, dynamic cloud environments across many Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts, bringing control and visibility to cloud usage and operations. Fugue runs cloud resources as managed processes, which provides a concise, real-time view of cloud resource topology. This allows customers to avoid inefficiencies such as orphaned infrastructure that can lead to wasteful spending, security vulnerabilities, and time-consuming audits. “Fugue serves as the operational source of truth and trust for the cloud,” Stella explained.
Fugue Product Highlights
Fugue compiles, configures, manages, automates, monitors, and enforces AWS cloud workloads, helping I&O teams quickly and proactively optimize cloud operations to ensure an outstanding end user experience.
- Mitigate Risk: Customers can use enhanced role-based access controls to regulate the creation and modification of cloud resources so teams can interface securely. Compliance and security rules can be implemented as code (policy-as-code), ensuring that infrastructure changes comply with organizational policies and practices before changes are applied. Change plans can be included in approval processes, and all changes are logged for auditing purposes.
- Eliminate Configuration Drift: Fugue continuously manages and enforces desired infrastructure state so teams can collaborate on running infrastructure safely without incurring the burdens of managing state locally and the associated risks of deployment failures and application downtimes.
- Enforce Consistency: Cloud architects and DevOps teams can simplify and share infrastructure compositions, pattern libraries and best practices to ensure consistency across workloads and significantly reduce the time to configure infrastructure.
- Fast Access to Dev/Test Environments: DevOps teams and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can use Fugue to easily spin up and tear down development, test and staging environments. Making environments quickly available to the right teams eliminates typical wait times that impede IT agility.
Customers can be productive with Fugue in less than an hour. With Fugue, enterprises can increase the speed of innovation delivery, eliminate manual infrastructure maintenance burdens, and ensure that enterprise IT standards are continuously met while delivering the operational success necessary for effective digital transformation.
