XebiaLabs Delivers Enterprise Framework for Scalable Container Migration
May 23, 2018

XebiaLabs announced a framework of critical DevOps capabilities companies need when moving to containers on a large scale. These capabilities complement common container tool functionality and become essential as companies move from single container projects to large-scale container adoption.

The XebiaLabs DevOps Platform offers orchestration, analytics, and deployment automation functions that are specifically designed to complement container infrastructures, helping companies manage applications deployed in containers at speed and scale.

Critical capabilities include:

- Standardization, automation, and control of complex software release pipelines, deployment processes, and configurations

- Dependency management between applications and between release processes, and release orchestration across the complete Continuous Delivery pipeline

- Complete visibility into the software delivery and deployment status across all environments

- Compliance, security, reporting, governance, and audit trail capture enforced throughout the release process

- Hybrid deployments that are managed across a mixture of containers, VMs, and traditional environments

- Release and deployment information that is easily accessible across all teams, both technical and non-technical

XebiaLabs offers deep integrations with most common container tools and related PaaS platforms, including Docker, Docker Compose, Docker Enterprise, Kubernetes, Google Container Engine (GKE), RedHat OpenShift, Terraform, Cloud Foundry, Helm, AWS EC2 ECS, and Microsoft Azure Container Instance.

“Container technologies have revolutionized software development. But as usage grows beyond the sandbox, companies need to find ways to take advantage of the power of containers without being held back by unscalable, manual processes developed for one-off projects,” noted Robert Stroud, Chief Product Officer at XebiaLabs and former Principle Analyst for Forrester Research. “Using a holistic enterprise framework that incorporates application, technical, organizational, and governance complexities will accelerate software development and delivery. Such a framework also significantly reduces risk and provides deep insights and guidance. This structured approach allows organizations to focus on creating applications that differentiate the business and to deliver true business value rather than writing ‘plumbing code’ that is expensive, introduces risk, and is not scalable.”
