Deployment Automation

Maximizing return on your cloud investment requires making your infrastructure work for you, not the other way around. You want to integrate your software directly with Kahu APIs so you can ramp customers up faster, scale adaptively as your traffic increases, and minimize time-to-deploy for new virtualized environments.

Using Kahu as a catalyst for deployment automation, you can programatically orchestrate your environment so your team can spend more time writing code and less time managing systems.

Automation opportunities include:

  • Customized autoscale through Kahu REST APIs
  • Customized compute profiles and deployment triggers
  • Programmatic deployment of custom images
  • Programmatic deployment of complex cloud architectures
  • Push-button deploys for staging and development environments
  • Automated snapshots and Disaster Recovery plans
