Enterprise DevOps for the Cloud

XebiaLabs,
the recognized leader in enterprise DevOps and Continuous Delivery
software, today announced a DevOps framework that provides a smooth
pathway to the cloud for companies who are moving applications to
cloud-based resources on a large scale. The framework connects
enterprise DevOps practices with common cloud management functionality
and provides an essential foundation as enterprises accelerate their
transformations to cloud-based applications.

Cloud Does Not Equal DevOps

Easy access to public cloud technologies creates a common misconception:
moving to the cloud will not only provide more flexible and scalable
infrastructure at a lower cost, but it will also accelerate the delivery
of applications to the customer. In reality, moving to the cloud is just
one step in that journey. Enterprises that are looking to improve and
accelerate software delivery are implementing DevOps practices that span
the entire software delivery value stream. These practices are generally
unrelated to the cloud itself: they focus on management of the
end-to-end software release and application deployment process—from idea
to code to production. To succeed with DevOps, organizations must create
standardized processes that are technology agnostic, enforce governance
requirements, and enable collaboration across both technical and
non-technical teams.

Wanted: A DevOps Framework Designed for the Cloud

Enterprises delivering DevOps at scale need a framework that abstracts
configurations and infrastructure and that enforces consistent processes
across all teams and environments. And they need a DevOps-focused
framework that’s designed for the unique needs of cloud-based and hybrid
applications:

The XebiaLabs DevOps Platform Provides the Foundation for Enterprise
DevOps for Cloud Deployments

The XebiaLabs
DevOps Platform is the only solution that provides large enterprises
with the DevOps functionality necessary to deploy applications to the
cloud at any scale. It delivers orchestration, analytics, and deployment
automation functions that are designed to meet the unique needs of cloud
and hybrid infrastructures, helping companies manage applications
deployed in the cloud at speed and scale. Critical capabilities include:

“Across all industries, enterprises are ‘lifting and shifting’ their
applications to cloud-based resources,” said Robert Stroud, Chief
Product Officer for XebiaLabs and former Principal Analyst at Forrester
Research. “Most of them start with a few one-off projects here and
there, and they see initial, but limited, success. As they start to
shift at a larger scale, they need to align their cloud initiatives with
their DevOps processes, or both initiatives are likely to flounder. The
most effective way to deliver thousands of applications to the cloud in
a repeatable, scalable, and secure way is to fully include cloud
deployments in your end-to-end DevOps process and utilize a
comprehensive, cloud-native DevOps platform, such as XebiaLabs.”

Example: Enterprise DevOps for AWS Cloud Services

The XebiaLabs DevOps Platform integrates seamlessly with many popular
public and hybrid and cloud services including Microsoft Azure, Google
Cloud, and AWS. Companies can include cloud-based infrastructure as part
of a code-to-production, automated release pipeline that is driven by
standardized processes and that incorporates all required controls.

The XebiaLabs DevOps Platform is designed to provide best practices for
DevOps in cloud environments. For example, companies can automatically
provision cloud-based infrastructure using AWS CloudFormation templates.
Combining XebiaLabs and AWS CloudFormation, teams can standardize cloud
configurations across their organizations, promote the reuse of vetted
CloudFormation templates, and simplify the process of troubleshooting
cloud-based environments. To help teams streamline releases and make the
most of their AWS resources, XebiaLabs also promotes the use of AWS best
practices such as recommended default configurations, the use of IAM
roles for powerful and flexible access management, and the use of
proxies when connecting to AWS to ensure additional security.
