DevOps Platforms


HashiCorp Terraform Cloud

With its Terraform Cloud offering, HashiCorp enables faster adoption of the Terraform multi-cloud provisioning solution—providing streamlined provisioning of infrastructure as well as complete management of security, compliance and operational risks. Recent enhancements have included the new Controlled Remote State Access feature, enabling granular controls to be established for state accessibility. The capability allows the state of a workspace to be shared globally within the organization—or alternatively, it can restrict the sharing to certain workspaces or prohibit sharing entirely. Other recent updates have included workspace tags, which add contextual awareness at the workspace level.


GitLab 14

With a focus on improving efficiency and productivity, GitLab 14 serves as a single tool for source code management, continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD). The latest version of the DevOps platform adds new capabilities such as Epic Boards, which enables ongoing communication across teams and pipeline editor templates—ensuring that CI/CD can be rapidly integrated into a development cycle, even for users who are new to CI/CD pipelines.

Rafay Kubernetes Operations Platform

With its Kubernetes Operations Platform, Rafay Systems reduces the complexity of Kubernetes operations for DevOps teams—offering streamlined lifecycle management for both Kubernetes clusters and modern apps. The platform enables deployment and management of apps across public cloud, on-premises and edge environments.
