Electric Cloud Unveils New DevOps Automation Platform to Supporting Advanced Deployment Strategies
FREMONT, CA: Electric Cloud, a firm dealing in DevOps Release Automation introduced its latest version of ElectricFlow, the industry’s first end-to-end DevOps platform. It offers a native, push-button support for deployment strategies such as Canary, Blue/Green and Rolling. The smart initiative allows IT to implement mission-critical applications and effectively avoid service interruptions for end users on a regular basis.
“We appreciate the effort it typically takes for Application Support teams to provide superior quality of service and zero-downtime for their hundreds or millions of demanding end-users. This latest version of ElectricFlow fully automates the process of creating and executing advanced deployment strategies, making them error-free, easy to adopt, and simple to use,” says Steve Brodie, CEO, Electric Cloud.
Apart from offering a remarkable upgrade which would usually require complicated processes such as scripting, ad hoc and environment-specific workflows, the new Rolling Deployment feature in ElectricFlow facilitates a robust, intuitive GUI and a model-based approach. The feature makes the task of configuration easy and reuses the Deployments across numerous pipelines and projects in the company.
The Rolling Deployments are mainly focused on enhancing the Production environments, where the complexity and risk related to application deployment is enormous. By offering the Deployments as an integral part of the process, ElectricFlow assists the teams in practicing rolling deployments even in the lower environments such as Pre-Production, QA or even staging. The procedure does not require any type of investment or additional management overhead in specialized resources.
“DevOps implementations are highly individual, and what works for one may not work for another, creating disparate DevOps tool portfolios and resulting in a need for greater investment and skills,” writes David Paul Williams and Thomas E. Murphy in this year’s Research Report produced by Gartner.
