Managed DevOps

Using the DevOps philosophy to harness the full power of the cloud means faster product improvements and releases and a better customer experience.

You’ll improve your code deployment times, and your website or app will be intelligently auto-scaling and highly available.

What Is DEVOPS?

SH.MD S01.34.9.60

DevOps is a philosophy that combines Development, Operations and Quality Assurance. Companies that incorporate DevOps practices get more done by deploying code far more frequently and more accurately.

In a DevOps environment there’s one team including developers, QA, DBAs, operations engineers etc.

DevOps integration targets product delivery, quality testing, feature development, and maintenance releases in order to improve reliability and security and provide faster development and deployment cycles. Many of the ideas (and people) involved in DevOps came from the enterprise systems management and agile software development movements.

Benefits of Steamhaus Managed DevOps

SH.MD S04.71.98.83

Your DevOps Cloud Architect will design your solution to be highly available at all levels, spreading resources across availability zones and/or regions based on uptime and recovery objectives.

SH.MD S05.91.73.76

Your DevOps Cloud Architect will design and implement autoscaling policies to ensure that your application automatically reacts to peaks in demand, provisioning and terminating additional capacity as demand dictates.

SH.MD S06.18.72.43

Your DevOps Cloud Architect will deploy and manage NewRelic APM (Application Performance Monitor).

Providing detailed application response times, end-to-end transaction tracing, code-level visibility and performance metrics of external services. We’ll respond to any highlighted  performance bottlenecks and work with your developers to resolve them.

SH.MD S07.45.72.23

It’s not just about monitoring and maintaining what you’ve already got. Your Cloud Architect can enhance your solution’s design and performance. Or design a new one. Whether it’s scaling upwards, re-architecting or adding resilience, that’s what we’re here for.

SH.MD S08.5.60.49

We’ll proactively patch your operating system when security updates are released. We’ll also scan your websites regularly for vulnerabilities and malware, and if we find anything that shouldn’t be there, we’ll fix it.

We’ll perform security scans and take a look at your firewall rules to find any holes in your server(s) with recommendations on how they can be fixed.

SH.MD S09.56.11.19

Managed DevOps includes a number of monthly credits for on-demand services that you can request when you need them. Things like in-depth security scans, help moving a site, setting up backups, doing a backup restore or simply a one-off consultation with an engineer for anything else they can help you with.

Steamhaus is your KINSHIP in the cloud

Steamhaus is provider-agnostic so your solution can be hosted with a cloud provider like AWS or Google, with us on our SteamCloud platform, or even with a local server hosting provider if you prefer.

Our Managed DevOps service can also work alongside existing solutions.  We can take over the management of existing servers hosted elsewhere if your current provider isn’t looking after you properly.
