Achieve Continuous Deployment - Eliminate Agents
Agentless Software Deployments at Scale
The Problem with AgentsWhen developers define a deployment process around a CI slave technology, the data center team must agree to install one CI slave for every production endpoint. The need for CI slaves in production immediately creates a roadblock to repeating the development team's deployment process. Not only that, data center teams have their own traditional deployment tools with their own 'slaves'. Data center teams want the development teams to adopt their waterfall based tools and processes. The mixed method creates a hybrid approach of agile and waterfall and the promise of continuous deployment is not achieved.
The Solution - an Agentless Approach
Release Engineer is an ARA solution designed to address the “last mile of agile” by both removing the overhead of agents that must be added to every deployment environment and eliminate the added work that is imposed on developers by traditional waterfall approaches. By removing the overhead of agents, the data center becomes more agile and can repeat the deployment 'teed up' by the development teams.
Release Engineer's agentless technology can scale to thousands of endpoints supporting physical, virtual, or container architectures. Agentless software deployments are critical in the reduction of your operational overhead and the ability to achieve continuous deployments. With the use of secure protocols such as SSH to connect and administer the data center infrastructure, no firewall changes are required.
