DevOps is an extremely complicated and multifaceted approach to software development that involves both a toolset and an ethos. Magento's complexity makes building the toolset that much harder.
Our solution is so elegantly simple, yet does the job of 12-18 months of work in just minutes.
Inscription includes the full end-to-end toolset needed to implement and manage a high-performance DevOps organization that enables online retailers to move at the speed of their customers:
DevOps takes as long time to implement because there are no enterprise toolsets for Magento 1 or Magento 2. Sure, you'll find pieces of the puzzle on Stack Exchange and Reddit, but you'll only get partial pictures. There is no "gold master" for any toolset that works perfectly out of the box with everything else.
Companies also experience extreme pain and setbacks as they attempt to integrate the backend tools and deployment processes that are fundamental to with DevOps.
The typical DevOps adoption looks like this:
Inscription enables you to skip past the initial pains of implementation with a clear roadmap and a fully-tested and trustworthy pipeline. Your developers and operations staff will have a clear understanding of their roles within a DevOps organization powered by Magento Open Source.
Most of the components within a DevOps toolset are dependent on immutability. Automated high-velocity deployment requires scripted infrastructure on the Cloud with the ability to create and destroy environments on the fly in order to enable testing, automation, & more. Immutability begets persistent data considerations, and as your team builds the underlying infrastructure, you'll uncover roadblock after roadblock.
Inscription provides you with a full scalable infrastructure and all the AMIs, Docker Containers, and everything else you need to get to work right away.
Take your development to new levels, unlocking efficiency, speed, quality, and happier developers through DevOps.
Our seemingly simple BYOC (bring your own code) approach allows you to "plug and play" developer resources with your software delivery. In-house and contract teams can work together in concert on the same environments.
You are easily able to extend your development environment through Integrated Development Environments (IDEs), APIs, and more.
Inscription includes a fully-automated, trustworthy, and powerful deployment pipeline & operational support system that complements and enables faster quality development.
Our toolset includes deployment through Jenkins on a fully scripted pipeline that is automated, monitored, and ready for data-mining. Most importantly, it's optimized for Magento 1 and Magento 2 as well as WordPress, the most common CMS pairing for Open Source retailers.
Extensive documentation is provided for management and operational users.
