Through our DevOps Automation Service, we provide managed support for DevOps tools that help you automate the process of deploying and scaling applications running on a Linux-based operating system in a managed infrastructure. (Windows OS availability coming soon.) Although this service can be used by anyone, it is ideal when you need to scale up infrastructure quickly or will have the need to scale up infrastructure in the future. Use cases include:
Our best practices go beyond just bash scripts and images to create identical development, staging, and testing environments based on same configurations.
Get the right balance of base images and instance configuration at build time, simplifying image management and instance building across infrastructure types.
We help adhere to strict source control practices for your environment, so that any changes can always be audited, tracked, and reversed if needed.
With our team configuring the monitoring, managing the environment, and responding to alerts as they occur, your team can focus on your application.

We are a large-scale operations company, with vast experience in scaling some of the busiest and most complex web applications in the world.
Unlike other vendors that provide training and professional services for only one part of the tool chain, we can help you write cookbooks, collect performance metrics, and optimize your infrastructure across your entire configuration.
Deployment automation helped us launch 18 new cloud products in 18 months and push code into production over 2,500 times last year.
Use the same methods to deploy your application, whether on dedicated, public cloud, or private cloud infrastructure.
