DevOps is a culture; a culture that collaborates around a set of shared goals to deliver software faster and more reliably to customers and end-users. It joins the forces of development, operations, and other groups within the organization by standardizing agile processes and tools.

 

Here’s What We Have Been Doing So Far


Axelerant recently invested in DevOps Engineering for Agencies. We have been exploring different areas and partnerships where we can expand our outreach in the DevOps marketplace and the DevOps community. We have helped a luxury resort client consolidate their web properties onto a single platform enabling them to offer their users modern content experiences faster and become more profitable. Here’s a case study reference: Serverless, Decoupled Drupal In A Hybrid Cloud Environment For A Luxury Resort Developer.

 

The Partnership Announcement


Today, we are happy to announce that effective February 13, 2020, we have joined  DigitalOcean’s partner program and will now be able to provide effective SRE and DevOps services on DigitalOcean’s cloud. 

DigitalOcean’s cloud simplifies modern app creation for new generations of developers — from individual developers to startups and SMBs. By combining the power of simplicity, love for the developer community, an obsession for customer service, and the advantages of open source, DigitalOcean brings software development within the technical and economic reach of anyone around the world.

DigitalOcean has also been conducting a series of informative and instructional webinars, and we are now collaborating with them to conduct online meetups.
