The Datagrid team announced the availability of Skopos today at DockerCon and we couldn’t be more excited to share this cool technology within the container world.
In a sentence… Skopos Enables Fast, Reliable and Repeatable Production Deployments for Container-based Services on Docker CE, Docker EE and Amazon ECS. So if you find yourself writing or updating scripts to deploy your containerized application, you may want to check us out.
We subscribe to the principle: Scripts are Not Features
By implementing a system instead of relying on your developers to figure out how to deploy their code, you free up hours and days of time spent managing non-value-add processes. But that’s not all that Skopos can do.
- Continuously deploys your application or service using tags in your repository to automatically roll out the right version to the right platform every time.
- Eliminates manual procedures and deployment scripts.
- Enables quality checks to ensure your app is working before, during and after deployment and automatic rollback should something go wrong.
- Creates deployment plans dynamically for each deployment based on a comparison of current state and desired state.
- Automatically handles roll-out to multiple environments consistently.
- Provides visibility of the deploy progress, share-ability of the current state application (high-level architecture and how your services interact) and clear troubleshooting information should something go wrong. The federated dashboard combines a view of the state of multiple deployments, environments and locations on a single screen.
- Installs and implements in less than 1 hour.
- Runs behind the scenes. It does not require training and/or adoption by developers.
If you’re here at DockerCon, come visit us in booth E15 in the startup pods area and you can run Skopos through its paces. You can commit code changes or induce failures to a live service at the push of an IoT button. Then, watch Skopos provide upgrades, failure detection, automatic rollback, all while operating on multiple environments such as Docker CE, Docker EE or ECS.
