Automating the deployment pipeline for Azure-based cloud
applications

SEATTLE & VIENNA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Automic, the leader in Business Automation, today announced the delivery
of a new Microsoft Azure Action Pack. The new plug-in integrates
seamlessly with Automic’s Application
Release Automation
and Service
Orchestration
tools. Available from the Automic
Marketplace
, this new integration allows Automic customers to
control Azure resources and applications from within their central
automation platform.

The Azure
Action Pack
:

1. Extends users’ ability to automate actions for creating, reading,
updating and deleting Azure resources including virtual machines,
storage containers, blobs, cloud services, virtual networks, files and
Azure deployments.

2. Allows customers to build visual workflows to fully automate all of
their Azure services – giving back valuable time to developers and
administrators, while also assuring a reduction in errors throughout the
entire process.

3. Empowers users to orchestrate and automate their application and
infrastructure lifecycles to provide Continuous
Delivery
of new applications or upgrades into the cloud on Microsoft
Azure.

“We are delighted to offer our newly released Azure
Action Pack
to customers who seek to operate their Continuous
Delivery pipeline into Microsoft Azure”, said John Purrier, Chief
Technology Officer of Automic. “This package ensures that our customers
are able to seamlessly integrate their automation and orchestration
needs for improved user experience, while controlling their entire
pipeline in the cloud”.

Further, integrating Azure with Automic’s
Application Release Automation
and Service
Orchestration
enables enterprises to:

  • Ease the efforts of DevOps engineers, developers and system
    administrators to create, deploy, and run fully automated Azure
    deployments workflows from within Automic, through the API or as
    preapproved service desk requests.
  • Seamless promotion of versioned components from TFS through to
    production
  • Ensure automated rollbacks in case of need
  • Augment containers with code components and meta-data and ship as one
    coherent deployable package that is promoted from environment to
    environment, automatically.
  • Standardize an Azure best practice for application deployments and
    avoid expensive cloud sprawl by ensuring provisioning and guaranteed
    de-provisioning of cloud resources
