ServiceMesh released its DevOps Accelerator, an enterprise-class solution to better integrate development and operations capabilities.
ServiceMesh, provider of an enterprise-grade
cloud management platform, has announced its DevOps Accelerator solution, which
enables enterprise customers to accelerate the pace and frequency of their
The ServiceMesh DevOps Accelerator
solution helps align software development and IT operations teams with a
practical starting point to implement DevOps within the enterprise to remove
software release bottlenecks and improve efficiency across the software
development lifecycle. DevOps Accelerator includes enterprise-grade
capabilities that span self-service, on-demand access to IT resources and
environments, consistent governance and security enforcement, automation of
manual processes, and improved quality of software released into
"Today's agile companies have
demonstrated the ability to develop and deploy critical software releases into
production on the same day," said Frank Martinez, chief strategy officer at
ServiceMesh. "There's no reason why large enterprises accustomed to six- to 12-month
software release cycles should not embrace their own DevOps initiatives so they
can more rapidly innovate and improve their competitive position."
"With ServiceMesh's DevOps
Accelerator, enterprises can finally address the goal of rapidly releasing
high-quality software from development to production while leveraging their
existing software development tool chain and their preferred hybrid cloud
deployment environments," he added.
DevOps is a term used to describe a
set of principles, methods, and enabling technologies to address the goal of
rapidly releasing high-quality software from development to production.
ServiceMesh's DevOps Accelerator solution includes enterprise software based on
the ServiceMesh Agility Platform, along with training and professional services
that enable enterprise customers to deliver new software features more rapidly,
and deploy software more consistently and reliably into production.
The ServiceMesh solution increases
the speed and frequency of software releases, enforces common application
platforms across the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and automates
workflows across existing SDLC tool chains.
DevOps Accelerator includes a
"Common Application Platform" (CAP) model that enables enterprises to
embed IT operations' best practices around the governance and configuration of
the underlying infrastructure, platform and deployment environment that
development and test teams need to be productive. By implementing these best
practices around governance and configuration from the outset in a
production-like "container" for code, the CAP ensures that
development efforts are aligned to actual production deployment environments,
and minimizes configuration-related defects, delivering rapid and higher-quality
releases to meet business requirements, the company said.
"It's hard for IT organizations
to innovate and grow their businesses when they are struggling with lengthy
software release cycles," said Rachel Chalmers, vice president of 451 Research,
in a statement. "ServiceMesh's DevOps Accelerator embeds IT best practices into
containers that can be shared across dev, test and the rest of the software
lifecycle as on-demand, cloud-based deployment environments. A policy-based framework
addresses enterprises' governance and security needs. With DevOps Accelerator,
software cycle times should get shorter and faster."
