D2iQ Dispatch Debuts
March 6, 2020
Dispatch is an integrated GitOps platform for rapidly building and
deploying cloud native microservices-based applications. By enabling a
clear separation of responsibilities between application developers and
operators, Dispatch provides enterprises with the flexibility, speed and
consistency required to enhance DevOps processes for successful Day 2
With increased demand for software engineering teams to deliver more
features at a faster pace, organizations are struggling to reduce
complexity and accelerate the development and delivery of new
application capabilities. They require automated and repeatable
deployment workflows to free their organizations from the traditional
difficulties of getting new code into production, while decreasing the
time-to-value for new innovations.
Dispatch enables developers and operators to transition to modern GitOps
processes, with a full lifecycle of continuous integration / continuous
delivery (CI/CD) capabilities to simplify the delivery of new code for
their audiences. Dispatch is built upon prevailing open source
technologies to ensure tremendous organizational flexibility allowing
developers to focus on continuous build of new code and operational
resources to focus on continuous deployment of new code. The result is a
development environment that simplifies and automates the often complex
tasks of pushing new code, rapidly testing it and immediately getting it
"Moving from legacy to cloud native applications is becoming a
requirement for organizations that want to keep pace with the digital
economy," said Ben Hindman, co-founder and chief product officer, D2iQ.
"Dispatch leverages D2iQ's expertise in building distributed systems for
some of the largest global organizations to deliver business logic that
enables enterprises to accelerate their cloud native CI/CD pipeline
through GitOps processes. This empowers organizations with a clear path
to success and business impact as their cloud native journey continues
to Day 2 operations."
Dispatch delivers a number of benefits across three core categories,
Empowerment: Dispatch empowers developers with a single-pipeline
solution that builds anywhere, without requiring configuration changes.
By providing a powerful, easy-to-use build orchestration tool, multiple
declarative languages to configure pipelines and personal development
environments, Dispatch increases productivity enabling developers to
independently manage their pipeline, without central teams slowing them
down. This significantly enhances the developer experience.
Operational Freedom: With GitOps code repositories for the configuration
of a Kubernetes cluster, application or other infrastructure, Dispatch
provides operators with the flexibility to make localized pipeline
changes without affecting the global state of the system, while also
empowering operators to validate without user impact. Dispatch also
provides operational freedom over a variety of target environments and
can be deployed locally or on private/public cloud Kubernetes,
standardizing the CI/CD process across the organization. While Dispatch
can run independently of other D2iQ products, the platform is optimized
to run on D2iQ Konvoy, providing immediate benefit to customers when the
solutions are deployed together.
Cloud Native Foundation: Dispatch is built from the ground up with
open-source cloud native technologies, enabling developers to take
advantage of the feature-rich infrastructure. This infrastructure allows
developers to seamlessly integrate their underlying Kubernetes features
into their build while providing choices to improve their specific
platform over time as new technologies advance.
D2iQ Dispatch is available now and is bundled with D2iQ's Kubernetes
