Grid Dynamics unveils DevOps Catalyst

27 Oct 2011 Fremont - Grid Dynamics has launched a new solution, DevOps Catalyst, an integrated product and services offering designed to address the need of modern enterprises to release code to production in a fast, repeatable and reliable manner.

DevOps Catalyst is a combination of Grid Dynamics services and tools that help enterprises establish the following practices:

  • Collaborative release management portal: Developers, Quality Assurance (QA), configuration managers and operations working together to assemble a release;
  • Artifact tracking and versioning: assigning a version tag to each component of a release starting from the development and all the way into production. This applies to code, binaries, configuration files, and release definition itself;
  • Automated application deployment: increasing repeatability for application deployment even across heterogeneous environments;
  • Environment policy management: managing environment definitions and policies in a centralized fashion, separate from the application configuration;
  • Utilizing private and public Cloud providers: efficiently working with major public Cloud providers, as well as private Cloud offerings from major vendors, saving time and money by eliminating infrastructure bottlenecks.

Grid Dynamics Director of Cloud Services Stan Klimoff revealed DevOps Catalyst during his presentation on the rise of DevOps at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo on Tuesday, October 18. This announcement was part of the company's weeklong participation at the event, where members from the Grid Dynamics team were meeting with CIOs, senior IT managers and industry analysts.

"We are excited to offer DevOps Catalyst family of tools and services", stated Stan Klimoff. "Each practice is designed to help enterprises become more agile. We have been refining these capabilities for many years and on numerous client engagements. With DevOps becoming more and more prevalent throughout the IT industry, DevOps Catalyst will give CIO's and senior IT executives the right tools to aid the process of change. We are fortunate to have been able to announce our new offering at the Gartner Symposium/ITexpo and discuss it with the industry's key executives."

This is Grid Dynamics' first time attending the annual Gartner event. Gartner Inc. is an international expert in IT research headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut. In April, Gartner included Grid Dynamics in its 2011 annual list of "Cool Vendors" for "Infrastructure Services".
