How the support service works Cloudreach Agile Operations is focused on: (i) enabling rapid application development; (ii) consistent and maintainable testing and delivery systems; and (iii) reliable and performant production environments.

Cloudreach provides access to shared and dedicated teams of highly skilled and experienced DevOps Engineers who work closely with internal development, infrastructure, application, and operations teams. Using our engineers as a bridge across typically disparate teams, equips customers with expertise in their chosen application space, cloud platform services, and DevOps technologies, offering elasticity and increased agility with the primary goal of meeting business objectives and modernizing core business applications.

Agile Operations tasks include:

- Deploying new releases of an application (packaged deployment);
- Updating configuration of an application service (e.g. Apache) or database engine;
- Refactoring and rebuilding monolithic applications using serverless architectures (e.g. AWS Lambda, Azure Functions) and Container services (e.g. Docker, ECS, Kubernetes);
- Creating/updating Infrastructure as Code templates e.g. AWS Cloudformation or Azure resource manager;
- Implementing/managing configuration management tooling e.g. Chef or Ansible;
- Implementing financial and security optimisation recommendations/ actions;
- Deployment cycle auditing;
- Operational task automation;
- Implementing and managing an end-to-end development and deployment pipeline using Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery or Continuous Deployment techniques
