THE PRODUCT DELIVERY PLATFORM
for Red Hat OpenShift ®
MATURE DEVOPS IN 6 WEEKS
OpenShift delivers secure and efficient management of containers, but that’s only half the story. Every project we’ve done also had to select tools, build a delivery process, script environments, link into JIRA, monitor, and implement deployment strategies. With Boost, you start with everything you need in place including worked examples so your teams learn and follow best practice.
We will establish mature DevOps in your organisation in 6 weeks
If you want to get your ideas to market quickly (and before anyone else) your development teams have to focus on delivering value. It seems obvious, but most teams spend only 32% of their day writing code that creates business value; the rest is spent on process, infrastructure, maintenance, waiting for environments, and inefficiency.
DevOps is a way of increasing the time everyone spends creating value, by decreasing the time spent on everything else. For example, we bring together Devs and QAs with dev practices that ensure Behaviour-Driven tests can always happen in the same sprint as coding; that promotion between environments is through automated pipelines and agreed quality gates; and that environments, gates and pipelines are versioned in source control so that we never have to wait to rebuild an element if something breaks.
What we’ve done is demonstrate how efficient DevOps should be achieved using OpenShift so that new teams can realise the benefits (e.g. continuous delivery) in days or weeks rather than months and years. We’ve learned from big banks and we’re ready to share it with everyone.
BOOST YOUR TEAM
Kubernetes distributions like OpenShift have all the capabilities you need to build efficient DevOps in your organisation; however they don’t tell you how to do it. This is important, because we see large organisations (with mature processes) who’ve adopted this tech still only releasing every 3-4 months with lots of friction along the way.
We’ve gone back to basics, looked at each step in the software value chain and eliminated friction wherever we found it. If you want your delivery teams to be efficient, they shouldn’t be fixing broken environments, working out what’s running where, conducting manual tests, or trying to deploying to live at weekends.
Boost gives you not only leading opensource tools (e.g. Ansible roles so you can create environments quickly), but also a way of working that helps everyone deliver value quickly. This means you can:
Easily customise pipelines, environments and quality gates for each product
Gain insight into delivery: our UI tracks and promote whole features from Dev to Live
Deploy to live multiple times a day (with Blue/Green deployment)
