|Cleveland OH, August 22, 2011 — UrbanCode, the leading provider of release and deployment automation solutions, announced today the general availability release of UrbanDeploy: their new application release automation software and part of the company's new DevOps Platform. |
UrbanDeploy was developed to address the challenges of modern application deployments. UrbanDeploy allows users to model the structure of a multi-tiered (or service oriented) application and orchestrate the processes required to deploy each tier. This provides the ability to create approvals and allows users to promote deployments across multiple environments on their way to Production. Not only does UrbanDeploy manage code deployments, it also manages configuration deployments. These configurations can provide application consistency across heterogeneous environments. Changes to the environments can be managed using the inventory and scheduling services. These services track which versions were deployed to environments and when they were deployed.
"We've been seeing more and more organizations focusing efforts on the challenges of application deployment," said Maciej Zawadzki, CEO of UrbanCode. "With UrbanDeploy, we've taken our process automation expertise along with our extensive list of integrations with middleware platforms and created a tool that can be used by both the AppDev and Operations teams. The divide between Dev and Ops organizations has received a lot of attention recently with the DevOps movement. Among our customers, we've seen that simply having shared tooling can bridge much of the gap between Dev and Ops."
With the ability to reduce deployment cycles from days or weeks to a matter of minutes, companies will see an immediate impact from the automation provided by UrbanDeploy. The over 150 built-in integrations can replace the development and maintenance of time consuming and error-prone scripts. And the numerous built-in reports facilitate communication among teams and hand-offs between Dev and Ops.
