Electric Cloud has a new version of ElectricFlow that makes it easier for developers to get started with the free Community Edition using Docker, and also deploy to a myriad of Container orchestration solutions and platforms.
ElectricFlow provides broad support for the leading technologies in the Containers ecosystem. DevOps teams can now deploy to different environments or port their applications between different platforms, without having to invest a lot of work in learning new API integrations
or rewriting complex scripting to re-purpose their deployment or release processes to fit a new environment or tool.
ElectricFlow’s native support for modern Container technologies and Microservices
architectures tames the growing complexity of modern application delivery. It enables organizations to take advantage of the latest delivery patterns as an integral part of their software delivery strategy, while minimizing risk and allowing for shared visibility and orchestration. The latest release includes built-in, one-click deployment support for Docker itself, Kubernetes, Amazon Container Service (ECS), Google Container Engine (GKE), Microsoft Azure Container Service, OpenShift Container Platform, and Cloud Foundry container-based PaaS. AWS Lambda is also supported for Serverless-type application releases.
In addition to making it easier than ever to get started, the latest version of ElectricFlow boasts additional, advanced features to help teams optimize complex CI/CD processes at scale. New drag-and-drop
capabilities allow teams to easily parallelize and re-prioritize pipeline tasks on the fly, in order to optimize cycle times. Policy-based approval gates that are data-driven allow teams to increase velocity without sacrificing compliance. This allows enterprises to enable continuous deployment safely, while automatically blocking any application updates that do not meet minimum requirements (such as acceptable performance or adequate code coverage).
