Pre-Built Automation

We provide a collection of reusable components and services for Kubernetes, Cloud Native or Bare Metal Datacentres, based on Project Blueprints using our pre-built automation. In addition, our Project Production Line provides the automation to take your applications through Development, Test and into Production, with minimal necessary manual intervention such as an approval stage.

But do we need all this automation?

IT systems development could still be described as a cottage industry.  The industry is 100 years behind manufacturing with far too much hand building of IT systems. Greater efficiency and therefore quicker delivery and lower cost is only possible with agile methods and high levels of automation.

To do full automation yourself there are a number of issues to contemplate:

Risk - many automation projects fail to deliver the expected benefits or in some cases anything at all. There is often a mismatch between the required outcome and the engineering team’s ability to deliver.

Cost – for most, IT is still very manual and inefficient so there’s lots of opportunity for automation. But that’s the problem, there’s a lot of work to do to get the game-changing rewards and the project will need lots of expensive, hard-to-find, skilled engineers.

Time – lots of work needs to be done up front before automation starts to bring the efficiencies that leads to IT systems being delivered with up to 50% less effort. Yes, there are gains all the way through the process, but how long before those gains kick in?

Does it make sense to do it yourself?

Balancing up Risk, Cost and Time taken isn’t straight forward and many programmes fall by the wayside as delivery confidence slips.

Most automation capability isn’t unique to any particular organisation, so the 80/20 rule can be applied: buy in the 80% that everyone needs and focus on the 20% that differentiates.

We have pre-defined Blueprints and associated automation for projects and production that work out-of-the-box and are completely flexible so they can be tailored to your exact needs. You don’t need legions of specialist DevOps engineers. Just use our pre-built automation for 80% of what you need. Any customisation that you may need can be done by our award-winning engineers or we can teach you how to do it yourself.

We are adding to our blueprints and automation constantly, but here’s a sample:

  • Cloud native or physical networks
  • Virtual or physical servers
  • Standardised security controls
  • Cloud native or physical components, such as databases, message queues, caches, file & object stores
  • Open source version Kubernetes Clusters
  • Auto scaling and healing
  • Service Meshes
  • Access controls
  • Logging and Audit
  • Management and Monitoring
