Do not Build your own DevOps Toolchain

A growing car industry which requires cars to be manufactured in large numbers. At present, the car is built manually and requires skills and experience. The quality of the car is not consistent, and the standards vary widely. Moreover, the business is not able to be productive 24×7 due to the lack of automation, lack of trained resources, and finding the necessary skill sets in the local market to produce cars.

Does this sound familiar? 

If you are involved with DevOps, it probably does. With the DevOps industry expected to grow from $3.5 billion USD in 2018 to $10.5 Billion USD by 2024 according to the “DevOps Market, 2019-2024” report by Imarc, there is a steady demand for DevOps services and personnel with the necessary skills. 

Yet the DevOps Automation process is largely manual: Building your artifact, building your container, accessing file registries, writing a YAML file to deploy the object or cluster, and building the tools to monitor the performance and security. Since this is a complex process involving multiple tools, multiple Cloud platforms, and multiple personnel, there is no consistency to the process of deploying applications. With all these factors, it is challenging and costly to find the skills and resources to manage the DevOps Pipeline and associated practices.

Recently one of my connection told me that his company hired a vendor to execute unit test their DevOps Pipeline. As a business owner, your job is to focus on developing the applications that are necessary for the business.

DevOps Pipeline sprawling is a major concern in Organizations today.

Yet as we are entering the beginning of the digital revolution, it is worthwhile looking back to the beginning of another revolution. 

At the beginning of the industrial revolution, in 1802, the British Royal Navy had similar problems with the building of pulley-blocks. The Royal Navy used large numbers of blocks, which were all hand-made by contractors. Their quality was not consistent, the supply problematic, and they were expensive. A typical ship of the line needed about 1000 blocks of different sizes, and in the course of the year the Navy required over 100,000.

In 1802, Marc Isambard Brunel with the Portsmouth Block Mills was contracted to build the pulley blocks using his patented block making machinery. He automated the manufacturing process. By 1808, 130,000 blocks were produced per year, and the plant was able to fulfill all the needs of the British Navy.

Therefore, they were able to provide a consistent product, in large numbers, while addressing the constraints of cost and resources.

With the DevOps process today, we require an automated process which works with multiple tools and platforms, provides a consistent and standardized process for all personnel within the DevOps process, expedites the provisioning time by removing manual code processes, and which is fully documented. 

This is where Kuberiter comes in. We are a DevOps Toolchain Automation company, and we have a toolchain ready for you to build, deploy and orchestrate your applications in the Multi-Cloud environment. It combines Docker, Kubernetes, Istio, Helm and CyberArk Conjur, with an interactive user interface. It will also work with other cloud native tools such as Jenkins. 

Imagine managing your Kubernetes Clusters that exists at AWS, Azure, GCP and On-Premise from a single browser interface.

Imagine ‘One Kubernetes user experience’ to all Cloud at your Organization.

Kuberiter = One Management Interface for Kubernetes, deployed anywhere.

This provides the following benefits:

● Speed to market your applications;

● A single pane of glass for MultiCloud and On-Premise platforms;

● Expedites provisioning time of Cloud Native applications from hours to minutes;

● Improves your Application Developers efficiency by removing platform and automation code dependencies;

● Provides integration with Git repositories; Artifactories, Container registries and Cloud storage to deploy your applications; and

● Full documentation of the process.
