DevOps - Kubernetes
DevOps. Small word, big possibilities.
For years, we’ve refined the Parallax DevOps process. We have around 200 projects live at the moment, managed in a way that’s intuitive, cost-effective and above all reliable.
That got us thinking. Maybe we’re not as unique as we think we are.
We know the process and technology we use works and we also know from competitors, clients and those that join our team from elsewhere that it’s better than what the majority of other companies are doing.
In short, we’ve decided to license our technology and train others to let them leverage the power of cloud in a way that follows best practice and just works properly.
Kbuild – Kubernetes on AWS Without the Pain
Containers are pretty hot on everyone’s agenda but knowing where to start can be a real struggle. Our initial journey towards containers took around two years which is a really significant investment.
Now we know the right way to do it, we have customers going live in production in two weeks. That’s a real game-changer.
Kbuild sits at the heart of how our customers use containers and lets them go from source code (Github, Bitbucket, anywhere else) to production in a way that saves them time, money and increases the performance and predictability of their code.
Run PHP, Run Java, Run Python. Run anything.
Containers are stack-agnostic. We provide starting blocks that let you drop in your code and have it run straight away but there’s nothing stopping our customers from running a vast array of different platforms and technologies all under one unified roof.
Being able to run different technologies in one unified way is really powerful because it means that you achieve consistency which in turn reduces unpredictability, cost and operational problems.
Deploy Every Branch
Anything that slows down development work has a massive impact on cost. Development time isn’t cheap and can be hard to get hold of. Kbuild automatically builds and deploys every single branch of code on your projects to a QA environment where you can access it and share it with others.
Builds typically complete in under 2 minutes. That’s fast.
Kbuild automatically provisions databases, shared storage, SSL certificates and manages compliance issues around least privilege automatically by integrating with 1Password. Worry about your code, not the infrastructure it runs on.
It took us 2 years to get to this point. You can get there in two weeks or less. We work with your team to get them up to speed around the core principles of cloud-first containerisation and day-to-day usage of the Kbuild platform so they can accelerate the time it takes them to get their projects live.
We provide support for Kbuild via Slack and emergency support is available 24/7 should something go wrong.
Our pricing for Kbuild including support starts at £1,000/month. If you have more than 20 apps/sites deployed we can usually achieve a total cost of ownership decrease over what you’re currently doing.
