Tooit has integrated Rancher and Slack in our cloud delivery process
That's the missing piece! With Rancher Labs, we completed the puzzle of IT services, that need to provide automation IT, between cloud environments.
Rancher is the Open Source plattform to manage software deploying and virtual containers. It includes commercially-supported distributions of Kubernetes, Mesos, and Docker Swarm, making it easy to run containerized applications on any infrastructure.
From the ground up, Rancher was designed to solve all of the critical challenges necessary to run all of your applications in containers.
Rancher provides a full set of infrastructure services for containers, including networking, storage services, host management, load balancing and more. All of these services work across any infrastructure, and make it simple to reliably deploy and manage applications.
Slack is a messaging tool for teams, that allow organize public and private conversations bewteen Tooit members. About the virtues the Slack we have the Slack API.
Slack’s channels help you focus by enabling you to separate messages, discussions and notifications by purpose, department or topic. If you need privacy, Slack provides that as well with invite-only channels.
Sharing documents is one of the basics of collaboration. Slack enables you to share all types of files, even those stored outside of the solution itself.
Using Slack API we reach to send automatic messages in/out for each instance of the software development process.
Thus, when a developer had ended a feature, could send automaticaly all the changes from the development environment to testing environment.
Just click in a link in a Slack message!!
This request from Slack execute a recipe in Rancher migrating the code and data from the development environment to testing environment.
When the process finished ask to API, to send a new message to QA team and start the testing. Super easy?
Automated process like this, are example of endless possibilities of automation & orchestration IT, that we can build to increase your efficiency cloud architecture.
