June 25, 2014—Austin, TX | Flux7, an IT consultancy focused on delivering cloud migration, application development and process optimization solutions using DevOps-based approaches, today announced the availability of a 60-point DevOps Assessment designed to assist software-driven enterprises to evaluate their current infrastructure and identify key points for improvement. After participating in a low-impact evaluation process of six key areas, including performance, costs, robustness and disaster recovery, security, developer workflows and production monitoring, organizations receive a concise report clearly identifying areas for improvement.
“Our independent assessment helps IT teams to both identify and justify DevOps optimization projects,” said Mr. Aater Suleman, CEO of Flux7 and faculty member of The University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a PhD in computer engineering and now focuses on optimizing DevOps architectures involving the AWS cloud.
Mr. Suleman added: “After we complete the assessment, the IT teams can choose to act on those recommendations themselves, or with assistance from our team of experts. It all depends on their resources and knowledge set.”
A key aim of the assessment is to help businesses identify ways developers can become more productive and continue to create code using their native machines with all their tools and environments. As a result of this improvement, requests to operations to stand up new environments are eliminated.
Mr. Suleman, a frequent speaker at DevOps events, will be speaking at DevOpsDays Silicon Valley 2014 in regard to “Quick and Easy Multi-Tenancy Using Docker.” The talk begins at 12:35 p.m., June 27, 2014, at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. Event details are at devopsdays.org/events/2014-siliconvalley/program/.
Mr. Suleman added: “If you could save each member of a four-person developer team 10 percent of their time, you could reduce time to market, reduce cost, try more experiments that increase your chances of success, delay hiring, and keep your burn rate under control. A DevOps approach can hold this promise.”
The DevOps 60-Point Assessment can be purchased per service, starting at $195, or can be purchased per number of servers, starting at $495 for one to five servers. An optional CIO KPI Review includes budget, chargebacks and business continuity elements. More pricing details can be found at flux7.com/devops-assessment-package/.
