DevOps talk is everywhere these days, and with good reason: it helps you deliver code at the speed customers demand it. You might call it “code at Millenial speed”– I want my app updated and I want it updated now!
If you happen to be an IT infrastructure person, left behind in all the DevOps buzz are your good old trusty enterprise storage arrays. You paid good budget for those arrays, and you picked them for good reasons (performance, reliability, capacity, etc.), but your dev teams ignore them more often than not and go spend money on cloud resources. Then they ask you for copies of data!
Well, you can’t blame the devs. They’re used to moving at a fast pace, and if your IT process takes days or weeks to deliver data copies, well that’s too long to wait.
So how do you bridge this gap? You find a way to add automation and repeatability to storage operations, and a way to hand it off to the devs while still keeping them within guardrails you set up. How to achieve this seemingly miraculous feat? Very easily. Just add Catalogic ECX software!
Rather than spend time explaining it to, I’ll point you to this six minute video featuring our CEO Ed Walsh, who delivers a great overview, plus our business development engineer Prashant Jagannathan, who provides a short demonstration.
Want to know a lot more? Have some questions to ask? Next Thursday at 11 a.m. EST we are having a live webinar on this topic, which will allow you to ask questions and get more technical details. It will be hosted by Trevor Pott, who has a few opinions about DevOps himself! You won’t want to miss it.
PS – If you’re on the Dev side of the picture, this webinar is for you as well. We’ll show you a great new way you can work with your IT infrastructure counterparts.
