Local Development Environments
Rapidly onboard new developers. Efficiently iterate on features.
Rapid Software Development…
Reproducible 100% of the time. Spin up as many environments as needed and treat them all the same.
Treat everything as “Infrastructure as Code” for more manageable environments. Reduce the human element wherever possible.
EASY TO USE
Developers should be able to get up and contribute their first “Pull Requests” day-one.
Simple enough that anyone on your team should be able to use it.
You need a process to reliably release software at any time and without downtime.
Confidence that it works…
Leverage CodeFresh, GitHub Actions or other systems like AWS CodeBuild, and Jenkins to build and test every commit. Know exactly which commit broke the build every time.
Deploy exactly what was tested to any cluster using immutable containers. Identify problems before they get into production. Run identical environments to eliminate headaches.
Preview Environments enable any branch or Pull Request to be deployed as a short-lived ephemeral environment. Unlimited environments ensure developers are unblocked to test their changes.
Zero downtime, rolling deployments are accomplished automatically using Kubernetes with Helm. Need a service mesh like Istio? No problem.
Continually test every change made to your infrastructure and ensure all systems go. “Operations by Pull Request” ensure anyone that can open a Pull Request is capable of contributing.
Infrastructure as code means it can be tested as code.
Easy rollbacks when things don't work as expected. Just revert to the previous deployment without bending over backward.
Zero downtime, rolling deployments are accomplished automatically by Kubernetes.
Improve overall stability by catching problems early. Treat every problem as an opportunity to eliminate future headaches.
Site Reliability Engineering
Monitor everything that your organization depends on to meet SLAs, which means keeping an eye on both internal and external services.
Dashboards provide an overview of everything at a glance and provide the necessary transparency across departments. Get everyone on the same page and working towards the same goals by giving them the insights they need to do it.
KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
KPIs provide the benchmarks for success. They give a concrete indicator when things are working or broken. Alert based on thresholds instead of discrete events. Generate actionable notifications that escalate only when it matters to On-Call Engineers.
Monitor internal services for both availability and correctness. Aggregate and report on logs collected from all services across all machines.
MONITORING AS CODE
External services are just as integral to the performance of your product as internal ones. Monitor all dependencies as if they were your own. Escalate before their problems become yours.
Know your limits…
Collect and ship logs somewhere for easy reporting.
Reporting on logs requires visualization of events because that's the only way to make sense of mounds of data.
OPTIMIZE & REPEAT
Integrate with monitoring and alerting so that critical events are not lost.
Training and Support
Foster an engineering culture that fuses ops and dev by cross-training engineers to achieve maximum productivity and complete business continuity.
Foster a DevOps culture…
DevOps involves constant cross-training of engineers to achieve business continuity at the human-level.
Best Practices exist to teach hard lessons more easily.
Cloud Technologies are evolving at an astonishing rate. Get help staying on top of the latest & greatest tech without getting overwhelmed.
Security & Compliance
Implement a strategy that bakes security into the DNA of the organization that addresses both technological attack vectors and social engineering.
Protect your business…
Cloud security involves hardening all components, restricting access with SSO/MFA, and having a bird's eye view of everything going on to quickly remediate any incident.
On-prem security is just as important as cloud security. Protect your intellectual property (IP) from being compromised. Lockdown laptops, wifi, and physical access. A company is only as secure as its weakest link.
Auditing is the on-going process of surfacing anomalous events happening across all systems by combing through centrally aggregated logs like Splunk, Sumologic or Kibana/ElasticSearch.
Secrets management ensures there's a formal process for storing, securing, and rotating passwords and keys. Well designed solutions help ensure your company will not be tomorrow's headline news.
Our “Best Practices” exist to teach hard lessons more easily.
Gain the upper hand…
We'll perform a comprehensive 12-factor assessment on your code base
We'll review your GitHub organization to make sure your taking maximum advantage of the platform, including a comprehensive security assessment.
We'll review your Dockerfiles and Docker Compositions to make sure you're making best use of the tools.
We'll review your usage of Kubernetes and make recommendations on how to better leverage the platform to your advantage.
