Continuous Integration is the backbone of any software development process. It makes Agile development possible. It ensures code quality is continuously monitored. It creates rapid feedback loop for development teams. It management visibility into team performance without being intrusive or resorting to micro-management.
While it is easy to deploy Jenkins or Atlassian Bamboo, most enterprises find that success or failure of Continuous Integration depends on process design and putting in place all the supporting technologies to make the process successful and easy to use. Developers are notorious for circumventing difficult to use processes and for good reason.
This includes selection, integration and proper training on source code control system, branching strategy, testing tools and frameworks, configuration management tools, packaging and artifact management, deployment strategy, release strategy and host of other issues when software is deployed on public cloud.

Deployment is the end goal for all software development projects. Continuous Deployment allows software teams to not only demonstrate the fruits of their effort on a continuous basis, it accomplishes this using the same process used for the final production deployment - often called a software release. Continuous Deployment does not necessarily mean continuous release - it simply means that the artifacts produced from the Continuous Integration process can be deployed in some environment - often a QA environment.
Every decision made in designing Continuous Integration process can affect success of Continuous Deployment process and as such the process design activities for both processes must be undertaken simultaneously. Continuous Deployment has its own technical set of challenges. These include automation pipelines for deployment to various environments for developers, QA, pre-production and production.

We have strong competency in advising our clients on how to secure cloud infrastructure and achieve industry standard compliance certifications.
Our experts provide following services:
We have helped clients achieve PCI DSS compliance and maintain it year after year.
If you accept credit card as payment, you are subject to PCI compliance. Depending on many factors such as how credit card data is handled in transit and at rest (storage) through your cloud infrastructure, you may be subject to different levels of compliance.
We have helped clients navigate the complicated landscape of SSAE 16 - SOC-1, SOC-2, SOC-3, Type I and Type II reports.
SSAE 16 compliance is especially desirable for service providers (SaaS companies) as it gives clients the best assurance that provider's information systems meet highest standards with respect to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy
Vulnerability and penetration testing are requirements for security compliance audits and as such they are automatically provided and managed as part of our compliance services. We also offer these services as a standalone for those who only need these testing services.
Being cloud infrastructure experts, we don't play a big role with respect to HIPPA. However, we can address many of the privacy and security aspects of HIPPA as it related to your cloud infrastructure.
Amazon Web Services is the 1000 pound Public Cloud gorilla. By far the biggest Public Cloud service provider with the widest selection of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service).
Thousands of large to small businesses have integrated AWS services into their IT strategy. Some run their entire business on AWS while many enterprises go for a hybrid strategy to augment their own data center capacity.
It is trivial to create a new AWS account and spin up a few servers. However, most project require deep knowledge of AWS features and capabilities, networking concepts including VPC design, AWS API, Command line tools, CloudFormation and other automation tools. In addition, designing highly-available and scalable infrastructure utilizing multiple availability zones and regions is non-trivial.
Finally, going live on AWS requires more than just setting up the infrastructure. Operationalizing infrastructure requires monitoring and alerting design, log aggregation, integration with Continuous Deployment pipeline and release strategy that minimizes service downtime.

Puppet from PuppetLabs is one of the most widely used Configuration Management tool. It uses a domain specific language to describe the state you wish your servers to be in. A big community driven collection of off-the-shelf Puppet modules make it easy to reuse existing code to manage your infrastructure.
Puppet uses many different components - Puppet master, PuppetDB, Puppet Dashboard, MCollective, etc. each with their dependencies. All of this can be daunting to deploy especially if high-availability is desirable.
