SAN MATEO, Calif., December 15, 2020 – Armory, the enterprise software company commercializing Spinnaker, a leading open source continuous delivery platform, today announced that its enterprise-grade distribution of Spinnaker is now available through the Red Hat Marketplace.
Red Hat Marketplace is an open cloud marketplace for enterprise customers to discover, try, purchase, deploy, and manage certified container-based software across environments — public and private, cloud and on-premises. Through the marketplace, customers can take advantage of responsive support, streamlined billing and contracting, simplified governance, and single-dashboard visibility across clouds.
Armory provides an enterprise-grade distribution of Spinnaker, the cloud native, open source, continuous delivery platform that creates a paved road for developers to deploy with speed and safety. Armory helps companies codify and automate their entire software development lifecycle, providing the guardrails to ship software with confidence and velocity. The Armory platform brings the power of Spinnaker to your organization, along with mission-critical feature extensions and 24/7 expert support from the world’s experts at running Spinnaker at scale.
“Source code is the DNA of a company, making developer productivity mission critical to your organization,” said Daniel R. Odio, co-founder and CEO, Armory. “Armory makes software delivery continuous, scalable and safe — increasing productivity through policy-based deployments. Our partnership with Red Hat and IBM means that organizations new to Armory can experience the full power of the platform to build complex multi-cloud deployment workflows at scale.”
Built in collaboration with Red Hat and IBM, Red Hat Marketplace delivers a hybrid multicloud trifecta for organizations moving into the next era of computing: a robust ecosystem of partners, an industry-leading Kubernetes container platform, and award-winning commercial support—all on a highly scalable backend powered by IBM. A private, personalized marketplace is also available through Red Hat Marketplace Select, enabling clients to provide their teams with easier access to curated software their organizations have pre-approved.
“We believe Red Hat Marketplace is an essential destination to unlock the value of cloud investments,” said Lars Herrmann, senior director of technology partnerships, Red Hat. “With the marketplace, we are making it as fast and easy as possible for companies to implement the tools and technologies that can help them succeed in this hybrid multicloud world. We’ve simplified the steps to find and purchase tools like Armory’s enterprise distribution of Spinnaker that are tested, certified and supported on Red Hat OpenShift, and we’ve removed operational barriers to deploying and managing these technologies on Kubernetes-native infrastructure.”
“Through Red Hat Marketplace, we’re expanding our ecosystem together with partners like Armory and helping our customers thrive in a hybrid multicloud world,” said Sandesh Bhat, IBM General Manager, Open Cloud Technology & Applications. “Container-based environments are the future of enterprise technology, and Red Hat OpenShift is the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. We’re excited to simplify software purchase and adoption for our clients through a curated private Marketplace experience.”
Red Hat Marketplace is designed to meet the unique needs of developers, procurement teams and IT leaders through simplified and streamlined access to popular enterprise software. All solutions available through the marketplace have been tested and certified for Red Hat OpenShift, allowing them to run anywhere OpenShift runs. A containers-based approach helps ensure that applications can be run and managed the exact same way, regardless of the underlying cloud infrastructure. This gives companies the flexibility to run their workloads on premises or in any public or private cloud with improved portability and confidence that their applications and data are protected against vendor lock-in.
