Essential tools for managing complex deployments and release processes
Speed up development and improve visibility and collaboration. Bring WebSphere dev environments up and shut them down in minutes, with no delay for procurement and little time is lost if you make a mistake. Anyone in the team, wherever they are, can access the environment and make changes, allowing you to improve efficiency.
A realistic simulation of production with near-unlimited load capacity. On AWS, you can simulate much larger peak loads because your existing license does not constrain you. It's also in a WebSphere environment, so you can configure everything just as you would in production.
Using WebSphere on AWS allows you to integrate with your toolchain in an environment that is as close as possible to the one you use for production, with the speed and flexibility of the cloud. You can also integrate with any SaaS services you use or are planning to use, without lengthy procurement.
Find out how your system will perform with the latest version of WebSphere. Access the latest versions of WebSphere on AWS on a pay per use basis and test your infrastructure configuration for the new environment before you commit to the upgrade.
Forecasting the capacity you'll be requiring for the next three years when you're at the procurement stage can be time-consuming and inaccurate. Instead of finding yourself overprovisioned to account for all possibilities, use WebSphere on AWS on a pay per use basis and stay reactive to changing business needs.
Follow peak demand without wasting money. You might find your production infrastructure is insufficient for unusual demand spikes. Instead of overprovisioning your servers with perpetually licensed software at an unnecessary cost, use WebSphere on AWS as and when you need it and auto scale it to match whatever usage patterns emerge, paying for only what you use.
Docker is one of the most rapidly adopted open source technologies of all time. Developers are using Docker's power to drive continuous delivery of custom apps. However, as enterprises strive to provide Docker for their developers, IT departments are realising that it's not simple, especially given the unique requirements of enterprises such as diverse workloads, complex heterogenous infrastructures and governance and compliance requirements.
RapidDeploy's Docker tools help you to handle multi-container and hybrid deployments - and interdependent release pipelines - with ease.
Docker is almost entirely dependent on the Docker daemon for security, meaning that it's the developer's responsibility to ensure resource isolation and access control via tools such as application whitelisting, SELinux, or their DevOps tool chain.
RapidDeploy helps regulated enterprises enforce proper security by ensuring that proper security processes are followed and logged. RapidDeploy also supports in enforcing compliance, governance and control for all apps and components, as well as all new deployment targets that come online.
Software containers can play a critical role in assisting development and DevOps teams in increasing agility and accelerating delivery. However, with these benefits comes a loss of visiblity and control. As adoption of containers grows, so does the risk of potential open source vulnerabilies such as Shellshock and Heartbleed entering the enterprise.
RapidDeploy's Docker Plugin enables you to:
The typical enterprise is a complex, heterogenous environment that is made up of thousands of permutations of compute, network, storage and programming languages. Docker provides a way of abstracting away the complex plumbing of the underlying technologies so IT can focus simply on business environments.
However, although companies are leveraging container technology to present developers with an abstraction layer that lets them mix and match different technologies without having to worry what is going on under the covers, it will be a long time before any company is 100% container native.
There are too many enterprise systems, such as ERP, which are simply not a good fit for containers. RapidDeploy helps businesses to build a deployment model that automatically adjusts for any environment..
Containers involve a lot of moving parts, so enterprises need an integrated view of what’s going on where and when: both for release processes and deployment artifacts.
RapidDeploy excels at providing visibility into your systems, as well as up-to-date release and deployment status. This insight improves communication and collaboration, and also helps you find and fix problems quickly when they occur.
RapidDeploy enables you to bake your application’s configuration into a Docker image. Simply use RapidDeploy to add commands within the “Dockerfile” to drop configuration files into the right places via the Dockerfile’s COPY directive.
If there’s a container available on the Docker Hub Registry that does everything you want save for one or two config settings, you can fork that “Dockerfile” on GitHub, make modifications to the “Dockerfile” in RapidDeploy to drop in whatever configuration changes you want.
RapidDeploy includes support for logging containers for Docker, providing complete visibility across containerized environments, including container logs, container-level stats, Docker API events and host-level activity.
Using logging containers, customers can now collect and correlate a comprehensive set of important container-level stats with other valuable logs and metrics from across their container stack for real-time troubleshooting and analysis.
