Cloudreach Launches DevOps as a Service
February 1, 2021
DevOps as a Service combines Cloudreach development and operations, making them
available ‘as a Service’ via a simple and flexible subscription model. DevOps as
a Service is the first of its kind in the market, and fundamentally changes how
cloud IT services are consumed to make it easy for enterprises to adopt cloud
native technologies and practices.
Dave Chapman, Head of Strategy and Professional Services at Cloudreach, said:
“Cloudreach DevOps as a Service brings a DevOps and cloud engineering skill set
to any enterprise, whether they are new to the cloud or far along their
modernization journey. Companies that undergo cloud transformation are better
able to adapt to disruption, explore and innovate faster. This service helps
technology leaders get the right skills in place, at the right time, and scale
up and down to suit their changing requirements.”
DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development and IT
operations, removing the barriers between these traditionally siloed teams.
Under a DevOps model, development and operations teams work together across the
entire software application life cycle, from development and test through
deployment to operations.
More than a decade after the introduction of cloud computing, many enterprises
still find themselves suffering from the symptoms of legacy IT and legacy
partners. Cloudreach DevOps as a Service makes cloud outsourcing easy by
providing flexible engineering squads as a monthly subscription service. The new
offering is designed to help technology leaders accelerate their cloud
initiatives, embrace true DevOps within their teams, and help their
organizations become more cloud native.
DevOps as a Service provides a core DevOps team that can be augmented to perform
architecture, platform development, data engineering, application UX and product
management roles, all as a unified service. As business priorities or backlogs
change, the flexible nature of the service means customers can swap out squad
members and scale the team up and down as needed, within a single statement of
work. The minimum squad size includes two resources and 80 hours per month, with
a minimum contract commitment of three months.
Cloudreach squads have a radical focus on trend improvement and platform
evolution. They can help launch new products, accelerate and scale business
initiatives, facilitate stronger collaboration with digital teams, or support
key applications and infrastructure.
James Dunn, Head of Cloud Platform Development at Cloudreach, said: “Over its
10-year history, Cloudreach has delivered some of the largest and most
successful cloud engineering projects in the world. Now we are bringing
Cloudreach's cloud native expertise to market in a flexible subscription model.”
