Outcomes that Matter.

Here's what our customers experienced in their own words before we helped them out.
This is what we deliver in a fraction of the time it would take to do it in-house.
Our repeatability and track record ensures your success.

Before

All changes were by hand (aka "Click Ops")

Deployments were manual and error prone that took forever

Developers were frustrated. Constantly blocked by others.

Projects were behind. Deadlines were missed.

Massive duplication of effort.

Secrets hardcoded in source code. Difficult to rotate.

Current architecture made modifications difficult.

Costs are high, resources are underutilized. It's a mess.

Not able to easily bring up multiple identical environments

Infrastructure looked like a dinosaur. Hard to maintain.

    After

    100% Infrastructure as Code stored on GitHub

    Fully automated, zero-down time deployments with automatic rollbacks.

    Developers are autonomous.  Developers can build and deploy their apps.

    Release products faster to beat out the competition.

    Reusable Infrastructure as Code libraries (DRY). 

    Roadmap to compliance. Satisfy CIS Foundations Benchmarks.

    Predictably build and deploy net-new software in minutes.

    Better economies of scale with total cost visibility.

    Automatically spin up new disposable environments for Pull Requests or customer demos.

    Better DevOps that operates more efficiently, with less stress, more transparency.

    World Class Infrastructure

    Cloudposse has established a fundamental part of our organization's infrastructure. Best in class services such as terraform, k8's, and CI/CD allow us to onboard new developers and have them deploying production code on their first day.

    Lead Engineer - Joany, Inc.
    Los Angeles, CA

    Strong Cloud Insights

    We got in touch with Cloud Posse when we went from a messy startup cloud to a robust, manageable and enterprise cloud architecture. The thoughtfully fabricated terraform modules, hand picked and modified utilities and the perfect orchestrator 'geodesic' brings in a very solid ITops management experience. Not to forget how responsive is the team.

    Head of Engineering - Niki.ai

    Extremely Knowledgeable

    Erik and his colleagues are extremely knowledgeable in all things infrastructure and communicate this knowledge in a friendly and helpful style. Cloud Posse is excellent value-for-money; have appropriately priced SOWs; and are very flexible to work with.
    I would recommend Cloud Posse to anyone who is: looking for modern scalable infrastructure as code to be developed on their behalf; looking for knowledgeable peers with which they can review roadmaps and processes; or seeking a panel of experts to act as a sounding board for their one-man infrastructure or DevOps teams.

    Modern Enterprise Infrastructure

    Cloud Posse did an amazing job moving our web operations into ECS with Fargate, setting up our code pipelines and CI/CD processes, and offering us a wealth of information around security and stability in AWS. Thanks to their solid understanding of a variety of AWS Services, we were able to steer clear of potential pitfalls upon implementation and secure our systems better than ever. With their help, we were ultimately able implement the latest strategies of modern enterprise website development.

    • Practice Better QA

      Our “Unlimited Staging Environments” strategy provide the same functionality as Heroko “Review Apps”, only better because they are unlimited! We enable your developers to bring up a short-lived disposable environment for every branch or pull request. These environments are automatically cleaned up when their no longer needed, saving the company money. These environments are ideal for customer demos (aka demo environments).

    • Unblock Developers to Move Faster

      Developers are your most expensive investment. Empowering developers to work autonomously with self-service infrastructure will pay dividends in productivity.

    • Monitor Everything Better

    • Predictable Results Delivered On Time

      Don't hire a team that's just going to reinvent the wheel all over for you. Avoid the minefield of failed projects and misunderstood technologies. Avoid all the common pitfalls. Instead benefit from the expertise of thousands of Peer Reviewed Pull Requests, tens of thousands of hours all made available on our GitHub. When you work with us you'll have the peace of mind knowing exactly what you'll get works based on experience and is delivered on time, every time.

    • Cheaper Than "Do It Yourself"

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    The Cost of “Do It Yourself”

    Do you know what it will cost to do this in-house with your own team?

    WARNING:You may be shocked. It's neither faster, nor cheaper.


    Our calculator gives you the benefit of the doubt. These estimates are extremely conservative on purpose. For example, we assume that delivery time will be cut in half just by adding another experienced DevOps engineer to your team (our experience is that seldom happens).  Also, do not discount the opportunity cost of getting done faster and with less impact to your business.

    Image

    The Math is Simple.

    "Do it Yourself" (DIY) is an order of magnitude more expensive.

    1. Multiply the salary of your fully loaded engineers by the number of engineers assigned full time to the project.

    2. Add the cost to recruit talent as part of the first year costs.

    3. Consider the cost of retaining the team for 3-5 years. Most companies do not just hire teams for a single project and then lay them off.

    Risks of “Do It Yourself”

    When you decide to build your own infrastructure in-house, consider the risks. A lot can go wrong. 

    • Your Team Gets Interrupted

      Engineers will get pulled on to other projects or burning fires that will slow the project.

    • Your Team has False Starts

      Mistakes happen. Re-engineering takes more effort than starting fresh and often requires several iterations.

    • Your Project Fails

      Good requirements do not always translate to good solutions. Knowing what works takes experience.

    • Your Project Get Deprioritized

      Projects that don't deliver immediate value often get deprioritized for more pressing business issues.

    • Your Project Goes Over Budget

      Projects that don't get it right the first time are likely to go over budget and end up behind schedule.

    • Your Team Experiences Churn

      You can't predict if/when you'll lose a member. This costly set back can take months to recover from.

    Facts

    Working with us gives you peace of mind. We're experts at what we do. We love our job and we never get bored doing it. Our experience ensures you get what you expect and when you need it. You only pay for what we deliver. We don't require any long-term commitments or retainers. 

    • We've Invested Years

      Cloud Posse has spent the last 4 years developing this solution to solve the really hard problems around security and compliance for our customers across multiple industries (Health care, Insurance, Financial Services, etc). We pass that along to our customers.

    • We've Open Sourced Everything

      Our solution is based on entirely Open Source, off-the-shelf components, which means you can implement it yourself. Hire us to do it faster.

    • We're Subject Matter Experts

      It's been our sole focus this entire time and we're subject matter experts on this topic. Most companies do not need to be cloud experts. They need to be domain experts in their industry to be competitive.

    • We're Continuously Iterating

      We iterate on it continuously with every engagement, multiple times per year. We learn from every engagement what we could do better and fix it..

    • We're Thought Leaders

      As thought leaders we use our influence to guide the direction of the tools, which accelerates the features our customers care most about.

    Assumptions

    It's difficult to quantify risk, so our calculator just assumes they won't happen. However, most engineering projects fail due to bad asssumptions. Wrong assumpts mean your cost to implement, timelines, and projects will suffer. Here's a list of some of the assumptions with the calculator.

    • Your Team Executes Flawlessly

      Your team can implement a comparable solution to ours that is easily supported and not riddled with tech debt. You can do this with only one full time Sr DevOps hire in 24 months. This is half the time it's taken us with a full time team and the help of thousands of contributors.

    • Your Team Delivers Expediently

      Your team will get it right the first time and you can sacrifice 6-12 months for an implementation. Our average turnaround for our customers is 3 months.

    • Your Team is Experienced

      You'll be able to attract and retain top talent with in a reasonable amount of time. They understand the full scope of work and common pitfalls. This is essential to develop a solid project plan that ensures success.

    • Your Team Does Not Vacation

      Your team will work tirelessly to completion. They won't be taking any vacation time (most humans like vacations) because that would jeopardize your projects timeline..

    • Your Team Has No Interrupts

      Your team won't have any interupts while they are building out your new infrastructure. Engineers will not get pulled on to other projects or burning fires.

    Reality Check ✓

    1. Engineering Good Solutions is Hard.
      No matter what anyone may tell you, engineering good solutions is hard. Our goal is to simplify this journey for our customers to reach security in the cloud with complete CI/CD and end to end automation. 

    2. Proven Track Records are Important.
      We have proven track record of delivering exactly what our customers expect. Afterwards, our customers are better off and educated on what it takes to operate modern DevOps machinery.

    3. "Do It Yourself" (DIY) is Much More Expensive and Risky.
      We charge less than the salary of one US based Sr DevOps hire and deliver the entire solution in half-the time (approximately 3 months), full integrated with your environment.

    Myth Busters

    Myth #1: “Open Source is Free” – BUSTED!

    Open Source software is free from a licensing standpoint, but that's it. The implementation of it is not. The initial setup of automation and configuration of any software is costly and time consuming. Getting dozens of products developed by different vendors and communities to work well together is tricky. This is why we've invested tens of thousands of hours integrating Open Source Software so you don't have to.

    Myth #2: “Good, Fast & Cheap” – BUSTED!

    Developing original software on a budget (cheap) without sacrificing quality (good) or delivery schedules (fast) is impossible. What is possible is repeatedly delivering a battle tested solution that has been painstakingly refined over the course of years. The truth is provisioning infrastructure is easy. Provisioning the right infrastructure is hard. It can only be done faster when it's been done before. It can be cheaper the faster you do it.

    Myth #3: “Our Requirements are Unique” – BUSTED!

    We work with countless startups. While the solutions to solving the problems they address are innovative and unique, the proven strategies for operating infrastructure at scale in cloud environments are well-understood and repeatable across organizations. In fact, you should question any time you're doing something unconventional, if it's absolutely necessary and understand the long term implications to the organization will be to support it.
