Armory & Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partnership

Access the full breadth of cloud innovation using AWS and Armory. Armory is part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) Global Startup Program.

About the Partnership

Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly-adopted cloud platform, offering over 175 fully-featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers—including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—are using AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster.

AWS and Armory have partnered together to help enterprises access the full breadth of innovation in the cloud. Using Armory’s Enterprise distribution of Spinnaker, customers can replace their complex, brittle paths to production in the data center with a single, codified pipeline that can deploy workloads to AWS, and also support a hybrid cloud strategy. Spinnaker’s target-agnostic deployment architecture makes it simple for enterprises to adopt new AWS services and regions. Multi-cluster, multi-region, and multi-service are all de facto enabled through Spinnaker, removing the barriers to adopting new services.

What Are the Details?

Armory is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner that has achieved the DevOps Competency. We have built an enterprise version of Spinnaker, the world’s most powerful continuous delivery (“CD”) platform created and open sourced by Netflix and Google. Armory’s scalable, flexible, and secure platform automates software delivery, enabling software teams to ship software with speed and resilience. Spinnaker acts as a workflow engine, combining Build, Provision, and Deploy into automated pipelines that deploy your workloads (containers, packages, AMIs) to your cloud(s), including AWS EC2, AWS EKS, AWS ECS, AWS Lambda, and other environments. Dedicated teams at Amazon and Netflix ensure that the AWS Clouddrivers in Spinnaker are the most robust and up-to-date.

How Do I Get Started?

Armory’s enterprise distribution of Spinnaker can be consumed via an AMI or Container on AWS Marketplace.

DevOps with AWS

DevOps

AWS DevOps Competency Partners have demonstrated expertise in delivering DevOps solutions on the AWS Cloud. Armory provides an enterprise distribution of Spinnaker, the cloud native, open source, continuous delivery platform that creates a paved road for your developers to deploy with speed and resilience. Rapidly and reliably build, test, and deploy your applications, while improving quality and reducing time to market.

Case Studies

Lookout

 “We’ve reduced years of accumulated tech debt, enabling us to deploy 10x faster and significantly increase developer efficiency.”

Informatica

“Today, the only way that enterprises can compete is if they can deliver at the same velocity as startups, while doing so with much greater scale and reliability. We’ve already increased our deployment velocity 4-5x, and by next year we plan to be deploying 20-25x faster than we were before Spinnaker.”

AWS Migration

Migration

Enterprises migrating to AWS require expertise, tools, and alignment of business and IT strategy. Many organizations can accelerate their migration and time to results through adopting Armory and Spinnaker.

Case Studies

GetYourGuide

“After adopting Spinnaker, we saw a substantial increase in deployment frequency, and support requests reduced to almost zero.”

Scopely

“The entire migration time to Kubernetes took just a few days because Spinnaker made it easy.”

Financial Services

AWS Financial Services Competency Partners provide cloud-based offerings that help accelerate innovation for banks, insurance companies, capital market firms, and payment processors of all sizes. Protect your business and your customers by reducing risk, improving fraud detection, and decreasing compliance costs.

Many leading financial service providers are solving this challenge with Armory and our enterprise-grade distribution of Spinnaker. Armory flips the deployment paradigm on its head; we provide Policy-Driven Deployments that build security and compliance into the very start of the software delivery journey, resulting in both increased safety and greatly accelerated speed.

Case Studies

JP Morgan Chase

“We started partnering with Armory to support the shift towards more frequent deployment cycles and continuous delivery in a multi-cloud environment. Armory provided immediate value with technical expertise, enterprise-grade software, and connectivity to the broader continuous delivery community. We are seeing a significant increase in both frequency and volume of releases with Armory’s integration.” – Stephen Flaherty, J.P. Morgan Chase Head of Core Engineering & Enterprise Architecture

Xero

“At Xero we embrace open source software but still want the confidence of being backed up by enterprise level support for when we need it. Having a company like Armory to back us up and being able to push through issues that matter to us to upstream repos is a great bonus.” – Scott Bell, Product Manager

Containers

AWS Container Competency Partners help customers better run their container workloads on AWS. These solutions extend our AWS container services by providing additional security, monitoring, and management capabilities.

Case Studies

Glovo

“Our engineers now know immediately if the release, deployment, or feature is successful, which gives them greater autonomy through transparent monitoring,” -Haroon Rasheed, Engineering Manager, Glovo

Xero

“Armory’s distribution of Spinnaker is a foundational building block of Xero’s deployment project. The level of automation and ease of deployment is critical to the success of the regionalization effort.” -Alex McNeill, Senior Engineer, Xero

Public Sector Partner Program

Armory is a member of the AWS Public Sector Partner Program. We look forward to bringing the benefits of Spinnaker to government, education, and nonprofit customer missions around the world. Spinnaker can deploy workloads to AWS GovCloud.

Armory can help ensure that your software delivery practices meet the security standards of FedRAMP.

Armory developed a protocol to create a CVSS score for each CVE found in the Spinnaker project. This will help security professionals and businesses alike understand the severity of the Common Vulnerabilities (CVEs), and define best practices to mitigate a particular CVE. Armory has secure, end-to-end hardened container images.

Bring the power of Spinnaker CD to your federal, state, and education IT teams.
