Many organizations look to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host and deploy their applications in the cloud. However, they’re finding that their deployment tooling, often built as an extension of their legacy continuous integration (CI), is one of the main impediments to adopting cloud services.  Custom-scripted production pipelines built with in-house tooling need to be […]

Many enterprises deploy their mission critical applications on Kubernetes to do this safely and at scale. Kubernetes (K8s) is a platform to automate deployment, scale and operate application containers across server groups. Because of […]
