HashiCorp Launches Atlas to Power DevOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Atlas Is One Foundation and One Workflow to Develop, Deploy, and Maintain Applications

HashiCorp formally announced Atlas, the company's first true commercial offering.

This follows the release of five successful open source projects -- Vagrant, Packer, Serf, Consul, and Terraform -- with more than one million cumulative downloads, and users from AOL, Disqus, Twitch, Lithium Technologies, Expedia, Mozilla, and others.

Atlas integrates HashiCorp's existing open source software into the first complete solution for application delivery on any infrastructure, and further solidifies HashiCorp's position as a leader in the DevOps marketplace.

Also today HashiCorp announced $10 million in Series A funding from Mayfield, GGV Capital and True Ventures:

Application delivery is an increasingly complex problem with applications running on public clouds, private clouds, physical servers, virtualized servers, in containers, and hybrid combinations of these. As more operations choices are added to the data center, whether through a growing development team, company acquisitions, or general technical debt, managing complexity between legacy and new systems becomes a nightmare. But the end goal is still the same -- safely and consistently deploy an application on any infrastructure. To accomplish this goal, development teams often build custom application delivery solutions that are time-consuming, expensive, and error-prone. Faced with a build-or-buy situation, organizations are forced to build, which can take up to a year of development time, since a buy option did not exist before Atlas.

"Cloud computing, containers, and the DevOps movement are all making application development and delivery faster and more flexible. But there are also new challenges," said Paul Burns, principal analyst at cloud research firm Neovise. "Too many IT shops develop custom systems for application delivery, plaguing them with maintenance costs, fragmenting their workflows, introducing errors, and preventing them from keeping up with the latest technologies. HashiCorp's Atlas gets past all that by providing a single dashboard, workflow, and foundation for developing, deploying, and maintaining applications on any infrastructure."

Atlas is a unified dashboard and workflow for developing, deploying, and maintaining applications on any public, private, or hybrid infrastructure. For the first time ever, developers and operators have a unified view to manage and provide visibility for servers, containers, VMs, configuration management, service discovery, and additional operations services. Companies who adopt Atlas will be protected against future infrastructure paradigm shifts by having Atlas focus on common, high-level workflows that are generic to application delivery across any system. DevOps teams can configure an application in Atlas and deploy it on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Compute Engine (GCE), Heroku, DigitalOcean, OpenStack, Azure, and more.

"Atlas is the solution to application delivery I've always envisioned. One dashboard and workflow to get from development to production on any infrastructure, all built on completely open source core components with strong communities," said Mitchell Hashimoto, Co-Founder and CEO of HashiCorp.

For workflow, the end result is one command for development: "vagrant up" and one command for deployment: "vagrant push." The applications might be using different technologies, running on different infrastructure providers, or even in containers, but the workflow is the same throughout: one command for development and deployment, now and forever. Developers and system administrators can now use one console and workflow from development to production.

Users of Atlas define three things for every application:
1. the development environment
2. the process for turning application code into a deployable artifact
3. the description for how to deploy the application

The development environment can run in VirtualBox, VMware, AWS, Docker, Rocket, and more. Next, the deployable artifact can be at the granularity of a physical image (ISO), virtual image (VMware, Hyper-V, etc.), or container (Docker, raw LXC). Finally, the configuration for deployment describes all the resources necessary to run/change the application: servers, load balancers, disks, etc. This is also infrastructure-provider agnostic. While not built into this beta release, real-time infrastructure monitoring, self-recovery, and auto-scaling will be available in early 2015. All of this is built on top of the production-hardened and proven open source technologies built by HashiCorp: Vagrant, Packer, Consul, and Terraform.

"Enterprise CIOs consistently rank DevOps enablement as one of their highest priorities. With Altas, HashiCorp has unified their portfolio of proven open source application life-cycle management tools into a powerful self-service DevOps enablement platform. Atlas aligns with Cisco's broader InterCloud vision of application centric enablement and portability across public and private clouds." said Ken Owens, Chief Technical Officer, Cisco Cloud Services.

Companies Are Using Features of Atlas at Large Production Scale
Lithium Technologies, a social platform provider to some of the world's most well-known brands, implemented Consul, which powers the runtime features of Atlas, and removed the need for custom load balancers, service registry, and internal DNS. As a result, Lithium saved hundreds of hours in development time, reduced the size of its server fleet by 15%, and decreased server costs by over $100,000 per year.

The modular nature of Atlas allows companies to integrate one piece at a time, ultimately building up to one complete foundation for application delivery on any infrastructure provider. Companies already using one or more of the open source projects powering Atlas are eager to unite the pieces.

"We are current users of Vagrant, Packer, Terraform and Consul. HashiCorp's products take complex problems and give the end user a simple interface. I believe that HashiCorp has done it again with Atlas. Atlas ties in all of HashiCorp's tools as well as many other common tools like Jenkins, Docker, Chef and others into one workflow. I am eager to try Atlas out to see how it can enable our Continuous Delivery pipeline," said Alon Becker, DevOps Architect at AOL, the 4th largest property on the Internet.

"HashiCorp's Vagrant and Consul are key pieces of the Twitch infrastructure. These tools have assisted in streamlining service management for both development and operations. We are looking forward to evaluating HashiCorp's upcoming Atlas which should allow us to simplify application delivery," said Tarrant Rollins, software engineer, Twitch, the world's leading video platform and community for gamers with more than 60 million visitors per month.

Availability
A beta version of Atlas SaaS is available today, and on-premise installations will be deployed in early 2015. Go to atlas.hashicorp.com to sign up for Atlas SaaS or request on-premise information. The full product release is expected in the first quarter of next year, and will include real-time monitoring features and dashboard enhancements. Pricing is expected to be per node and will be announced at GA.

Companies that were not previously in the technology space now find themselves competing with Google and Amazon on the speed of innovation. As the innovation cycle accelerates, companies must embrace rapid and constant change to both applications and their infrastructure, and find a way to deliver speed and agility of development without sacrificing reliability or efficiency of operations. In her Keynote at DevOps Summit Silicon Valley, Victoria Livschitz, CEO of Qubell, discussed how IT organizations can automate just-in-time assembly of application environments - each built for a specific purpose with the right infrastructure, components, service, data and tools - and deliver this automation to developers as a self-service. Victoria's keynote included remarks by Kira Makagon, EVP of Innovation at RingCentral, and Ratnakar Lavu, EVP of Digital Technology at Kohl's.

NoOps != No Operations
Download slides ▸ Here

Shipping daily, injecting faults, and keeping an extremely high availability "without Ops"? Understand why NoOps does not mean no operations. Agile development methodologies require evolved operations to be successful.

In his keynote at DevOps Summit Silicon Valley, David Tesar, Microsoft Technical Evangelist on Microsoft Azure and DevOps, discussed how Microsoft teams that have made huge progress with a DevOps transformation effectively utilize operations staff and how challenges were overcome. Regardless of whether you are a startup or a mature enterprise, whether you are using PaaS, Micro Services, or Containerization, walk away with some practical tips where Ops can make a significant impact working with the development teams. Operational teams and functions are increasingly more important as the industry delivers software at a blazing pace.


DevOps Is Even More Important Than You Think
The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps becomes essential for any ambitious enterprise today.

This Lunchtime Power Panel at DevOps Summit was moderated by Andi Mann, VP of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies. Monish Sharma, VP of Customer Success at ElasticBox; Myles Steinhauser, Software Development Engineer at Blue Box; Victoria Livschitz, CEO of Qubell Inc.; and Mark Levy, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Serena Software go beyond the basics in a discussion of why DevOps is not only important for transformation, but is mission-critical for enterprises that want to stay in business.

DevOps: Disruptive but Essential in a Cloud Expo® Universe
The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

The DevOps Summit 2015 New York and Silicon Valley will be held:

DevOps Summit 2015 New York
(June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center, Manhattan)

DevOps Summit 2015 Silicon Valley
(November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center)

DevOps Summit, June 9-11, 2015, at the New York Javits Center in the heart of world's financial capital, will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of time enterprise IT professionals spend putting out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

DevOps Summit content doubled in November from a single track last year in New York to two simultaneous tracks: "Dev" Developer Focus and "Ops" Operations Focus, as well as high impact keynotes attended by over 1,000 delegates.

We'll see you in New York City! See you in June!
