Flexiant Concerto gives DevOps the fastest way to build, deploy and automate applications consistently across multiple clouds
London, UK – March 25, 2015 – DevOps tasked with driving success in the cloud need a solution to efficiently leverage multiple clouds while avoiding cloud lock-in. Flexiant today announces the commercial availability of Flexiant Concerto. With Flexiant Concerto, DevOps have cloud freedom to automate the build, deployment and operations of applications consistently across multiple clouds. Concerto is available through four disruptive pricing models aimed to deliver multi-cloud at a price point everyone can afford.
Not limited to just Amazon Web Services, Flexiant Concerto gives DevOps the ability to automate their application on Digital Ocean, GoGrid, Google Compute Engine, IBM Softlayer, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, amongst others through one consistent toolset and interface.
Marco Meinardi, Vice President Products at Flexiant, said “Other solutions enable people to use multi-cloud platforms once an application is built, or if it’s already present within the cloud providers’ specific library. Flexiant Concerto is unique because it allows DevOps to build, deploy, configure, run, publish, monitor, load balance and auto-scale applications straight in the cloud or multiple clouds of their choice, without relying on the cloud provider’s specifics. Once deployed, that workload can be replicated on other clouds if necessary, with the guarantee of the exact same result helping to reduce uncertainty and risk when developing in the cloud.”
Flexiant Concerto helps to remove barriers to productivity by automating core and non-core components, consistently across the best cloud for the project/department/business. A great example is how Flexiant Concerto’s UI takes away the complexity to deploy Chef cookbooks, making them easily accessible to everyone. Flexiant Concerto automates the Chef configuration, i.e. set up and configuration of Chef servers and clients with the various dependencies involved, and the management, pull and execution of cookbooks.
Chef’s Vice President EMEA & Chief Enterprise Architect, Justin Arbuckle, said, “Flexiant Concerto’s hosted Chef solution makes managing the Cloud easy and it uses Chef at the heart of its engine.”
Flexiant Concerto also offers DevOps the ability to drive continuous innovation. By making Flexiant Concerto part of the CI/CD pipeline, DevOps can enable the automated testing and deployment of every code change in the application, offering a cycle of continuous feedback and release, to maximize the efficiency and productivity.
George Knox, CEO, Flexiant said, “We help DevOps achieve velocity across multiple clouds with the automation of core and non-core components and Concerto’s configuration management capabilities. Rapidly and frequently adapt applications to the business needs – from the code development to the production deployment – with Concerto.”
