“With the release of the SaaS version of appLariat, development teams of any size can quickly migrate existing apps to automated CI/CD using containers on Kubernetes in the cloud,” said Mazda Marvasti, CEO, appLariat. “The appLariat SaaS version provides automated containerization and continuous delivery of apps to Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services and Google Container Engine without the learning curve associated with these technologies, while easily integrating to existing development and continuous integration tools and processes. We encourage developers to come to appLariat.io, sign up and try out the platform to see the benefits they can get delivering their apps in containers on Kubernetes in the cloud.”
The newly released SaaS version of appLariat has these capabilities:
- Automated CI/CD and developer sandboxes with any CI tool (Travis CI, Jenkins, etc.)
- Automated containerization of an existing application in just minutes – appLariat provides a simple, wizard-like interface to convert an existing application to containers.
- Automated deployment and policy-based management of the Kubernetes container runtime – appLariat silently installs and configures the Kubernetes orchestrator. With policy-controlled application deployments and clusters, customers save 30-50% on cloud infrastructure costs.
Basic and Pro monthly subscription plans are available for different size teams and both come with a 30-day free trial, requiring no credit card at sign up. Pricing for the Basic plan is $39/month, while pricing for the Pro plan is $288/month. Details of the subscription plans are available at appLariat.com/pricing. Enterprise subscription plans are available for multiple teams as well priced based on cluster size requirements.
appLariat also announced today that Jonathan Chadwick has joined the company’s Advisory Board. Leveraging over 25 years of executive-level operational experience at leading global ISVs and startups, Chadwick has invested in appLariat and will serve as an advisor assisting with its go-to-market strategy and partnerships.

Chadwick currently serves on the board of directors of ServiceNow, Tanium, Cognizant, and F5 Networks.

“To bring applications and services to market faster and gain competitive advantage, companies are starting to leverage container technology, but the steep learning curve means that the technology has not made it to the mainstream,” said Chadwick. “appLariat’s approach democratizes container technology by eliminating the learning curve, making it easy for any company to leverage this technology to deliver software faster and with better quality. appLariat’s software solves a real business problem and I look forward to helping them grow.”
