Increase software delivery speed and improve team culture by breaking down the barriers between your development and operations teams.
We see many organisations struggling to adopt DevOps.
Our experience in tools and practices to encourage collaboration between development and operations may be just what you need. We can help you to:
Use RedHat's Ansible to provision cloud infrastructure and configuration management
Migrate and upgrade both on-premise and cloud infrastructure
Build continuous delivery pipelines for applications and infrastructure
Adopt modern delivery practices such as blue/green deploys and feature toggles
When it comes to cloud migration, we're seasoned professionals
We've helped many organisations to migrate their workloads to the cloud. Every organisation's existing infrastructure and requirements are different. We've been around the block once or twice, enough to provide you the support you'll need when choosing to migrate to the cloud.Read about our experiences moving The Keyholding Company to Amazon Web Services
Using RedHat's Ansible for provisioning cloud infrastructure
As huge fans of automating everything, we are advocates of using Ansible and similar technologies to automate both the provisioning of cloud infrastructure as well as configuring both on-premise and cloud servers.Read our introductory article to using Ansible for cloud infrastructure
Preparing your applications for the cloud
Cloud readiness is important when deciding to migrate. Getting your applications ready to run on a Platform-as-a-Service like RedHat's OpenShift or Cloud Foundry, or on compute services takes some experience. We can help get your applications 12 factor ready.Find out more about our cloud readiness offering
More than simply combining two roles within a team, DevOps means changing the way your entire team thinks about how they deliver software.
DevOps isn't a job title, it's a mentality designed to improve software delivery by breaking down silos in development and operations teams. Combining these responsibilities means your team shares an understanding of your application at each point of its lifetime, allowing for faster deployments, increased efficiency, and more time to focus on organisational goals.
As with all good software delivery practices, DevOps places an emphasis on strong communication between every member of a software application's team. This helps to create a culture that sees traditionally siloed roles as an impediment to better delivery, and encourages thinking critically about ways to further improve current processes.
The combination of these responsibilities allows developers to easily share knowledge around each stage of development and delivery, and reduces the operational bottlenecks often associated with siloed roles.
Throughout the delivery process, from provisioning infrastructure to deploying your application, there are many manual processes that can be automated with tools like Chef, Puppet and Terraform. Automating these repetitive tasks allows you to easily reproduce your infrastructure on demand, and also reduces the risk of human error.
