2-minute Tip: Provision Cloud Environments with XebiaLabs
Perhaps you’ve experienced this pain yourself. As companies shift their operations to the cloud and deploy on a large scale, it can be time-consuming, frustrating, and painful for teams to request the cloud-based environments they need for their application deployments. When provisioning cloud resources is done manually, it slows down the process and doesn’t always provide the level of governance and security required. Not so great for scaling, simplicity, standardization… or sanity!
So here’s a handy tip: with the XebiaLabs DevOps Platform, you can provision cloud-based infrastructure automatically and on demand … so it becomes an automated, repeatable, auditable part of your deployment process. XL Deploy gives you a single, consistent way of provisioning, no matter what tools you use for virtualized and cloud environments. Build a repeatable process for creating test, QA, pre-production, and production environments as needed. And avoid vendor lock-in too: XL Deploy’s dynamic model will let you migrate smoothly to whatever technology comes next.
Yes, it really is that simple.
Automate your provisioning and deployment process from end to endImagine having a self-service portal where your development teams can request the environments they need and have them available for use in a matter of minutes, as a built-in part of the deployment process. Then once you no longer need an environment, it gets automatically torn down. No more worrying that it will take weeks or even months to re-provision it when you need it. Faster, more automated provisioning through XL Deploy means more efficient use of your cloud environments and less headaches for everyone, from Development to Operations:
- Automate provisioning and deployment from end-to-end
- Allocate cloud resources based on usage and security groups
- Enable teams to get on-demand environments with no wait
- Automatic tear-down when complete - avoid paying for what you aren’t using
- Increase efficiency and reduce administrative work
- Avoid errors: use the same standardized process, every time
