AUSTIN, TX – April 18, 2017 - appLariat announced the general availability of its highly-anticipated container automation platform, the first to completely abstract the complexity of container technology, today at DockerCon 2017.
“We are thrilled to offer the market the appLariat Container Automation Platform, the fastest way to deliver cloud native capabilities to existing applications,” said Mazda Marvasti, CEO, appLariat. “The appLariat Platform abstracts the complexity of containers and modern container runtime environments, democratizing the technology so that any organization can gain the benefits of moving their applications to containers. Customers not only get their applications to the cloud faster, but enjoy cloud native benefits like portability, scalability and resilience without the need for costly re-architecture projects.”
Available today, the appLariat Container Automation Platform provides a comprehensive container automation solution for new and existing applications. With appLariat, customers achieve rapid application release cycles through fast application deployment into modern container runtime environments without having to re-architect existing applications. appLariat expedites the Dev to Ops transition by enforcing the production Standard Operating Environment (SOE) throughout the development lifecycle. appLariat also easily integrates with existing development and operations tools and workflows so you don’t have to change the way you currently work to get the benefits of moving applications to containers.
The appLariat Container Automation Platform provides a unique experience for moving applications to containers to get cloud native capabilities, including:
- Automated containerization of an existing application in just minutes – while container management tools expect you to provide and manage Dockerfiles and Docker Compose files to deploy your applications, appLariat’s container automation platform provides a simple wizard-like interface to convert an existing application to containers and deploy it. You don’t have to suffer the steep learning curve of containers or Kubernetes because appLariat handles the details for you. You simply select components (or provide your Chef, Puppet or Ansible deployment scripts), set configuration parameters, associate your code, config and data artifacts and appLariat automatically creates a container model of your application ready to deploy.
- Automated deployment and policy-based management of the Kubernetes container runtime – appLariat silently installs and configures the Kubernetes container orchestrator on Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure clouds, even your vSphere environment. In 15 minutes or less, you’ll be ready to deploy your newly containerized applications into a modern container runtime environment, which provides the benefits of portability, scalability and resilience to your applications. The appLariat Platform also provides comprehensive policy-based control of your Kubernetes environments, allowing you to control when Kubernetes acts in support of your applications. With policy-controlled application deployments and clusters, customers save 30-50% on cloud infrastructure costs.
Pricing for the appLariat Container Automation Platform is the greater of $8/CPU/Month or $2/GB RAM/Month on the managed nodes running your Kubernetes cluster.
appLariat provides the industry’s only enterprise-grade container automation platform that enables cloud-native capabilities for existing applications without time consuming and costly re-architecture efforts. Enterprise customers select appLariat to automate containerization, deployment and ongoing management of their applications and modern application runtimes (e.g., Kubernetes), across private, public and hybrid cloud environments. appLariat provides powerful policy control capabilities to ensure enterprise-class governance, compliance and security. With appLariat, customers reduce their cloud infrastructure costs by up to 50% through efficient management of application deployments throughout the development lifecycle.
