When it comes to IT agility, a lot of the focus of the discussion these days is on DevOps processes that are either non-existent or simply outdated. To help modernize those processes as quickly as possible, Distelli has created a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application that automates the process of pushing code out to servers regardless of where they are physically located.
Fresh off raising $2.8 million in funding this week, Distelli CEO Rahul Singh says Distelli works by placing agent software on each server that is linked back to a centralized management application running the cloud.
Singh says that approach enables Distelli to give organizations more control over both physical and virtual servers in a way that can be set up in as little as 20 minutes.
After spending nine years working at Amazon Web Services, Singh says it became apparent that IT organizations needed a better way to simply push code out to servers running on premise or in the cloud. For all the discussions surrounding DevOps, Singh notes that most organizations still rely on custom scripts that don’t scale to push code out to servers. Those scripts, adds Singh, are also the basis on which DevOps processes that are not particularly auditable from a compliance perspective are actually built.
As is often the case when it comes to all things IT, the quickest way to address a particular issue seems to be by adopting a cloud application that is already up and running. It looks like all the challenges surrounding DevOps will prove to be no exception to that general rule.
