At Caylent, we all come to work every day because we want to solve the biggest problems facing teams that are adopting containers and DevOps. Running applications in production and delivering them fast is still a huge challenge. Developers strive for fast feature releases while Ops is focused on stability and security. These diametrically opposed motives have led to the rapid adoption of DevOps, ushering in a new era of collaboration and harmony. In 2016, 74% of organizations reported they were in the process of adopting DevOps.
Yet, many hurdles stand in the way. Teams looking to adopt infrastructure as code, small and frequent deployments, and continuous integration and delivery can find it challenging picking the right toolchain and getting buy in from decision makers. The increasing popularity of microservices and containers also create new challenges around scaling, storage, orchestration, and security.
We understand those pains. Today we are striving to solve these challenges and help teams adopt best practice infrastructure and container deployments that is cloud agnostic. We want to make these tools available to as many people as possible (not just the Fortune 500).
