Creating Autonomous Ops for DevOps Teams
At Opsani, we’re on a mission to empower DevOps teams with autonomous operations. We believe DevOps teams should focus on valuable work and do away with the late-nights and weekend stress associated with application deployment.
Containers are shifting the landscape, with the promise of faster development and product iterations for DevOps teams. However, what we observed is that many people are still trying to use tools built for servers and virtual machines to control, update and maintain them, and not leveraging the unique advantages of containers. Others have forgone the old tools to use the native container orchestration primitives but as we build more complex services, there is a need for higher level constructs. That’s why we started Opsani.
