Today, we want to show you how Cycloid is currently being used in a situation that is pretty unusual, both for our customer and for us. Coronavirus has had an impact on almost every business imaginable, but the consequences for organizations that need to plan in advance around events that rely on mass public participation have been huge. The organization that we're looking at today found itself in precisely this situation and immediately got to work trying to find a workaround. The process makes for some pretty interesting reading, so let's take a look.
The pipeline is a core element of your stack and, in conjunction with infrastructure as code and config management, is an essential part of your environment. We decided it needed a little more love, and we’re proud to present our latest release which does just that. The new and improved Cycloid pipeline introduces two major improvements that will make managing your pipelines intuitive and safer, and a third improvement that will make ops very happy indeed!
When coronavirus broke out - or coronageddon, as I like to call it - Cycloid quickly decided to open our solution up to businesses that might need it. On March 19th, we launched a special offer: completely unlimited access to Cycloid (SaaS version) and support via Hangouts and Slack, completely free of cost or obligation.
Tonight was supposed to be a big night for the Cycloid team. We turn 5 today and, unlike other 5-year-olds, we planned to celebrate in a swanky Paris venue, partying the night away. Like the rest of the world, however, our party plans have been put on hold, and if we celebrate our 5th birthday at all today, it will be by raising a toast from the comfort of our (respective and separate) living rooms.
Distributed teams, collaborative tools, democratic access to the CI/CD pipeline...
They're all things that make our DevOps-loving hearts sing, but as your environments get more complex and your team grows and diversifies, it can be harder and harder to allow democratic access to your infra. Transparency and visibility are two of the main pillars of DevOps and, without them, you're not really doing it right.
The DevOps triad - people, process, and tools - sounds simple, but it's infinitely more complicated in the wilds of the enterprise. Founder Benjamin Brial saw the challenges first hand, moving him to create Cycloid. He tells the Cycloid origin story and explains his motivation for a new way of "doing" DevOps.
