GitOps for Everybody

We Make Central Cloud Accounts & IaC Provisioning as Easy as Online Shopping

I want to provide the Application Teams with an intuitive front end for my GitOps pipelines.

Problem:
In my GitOps setup, everything works fine for me. The problem is the app teams rely on me to provision their Azure subscriptions and on-prem connectivity. Can't they handle it themselves?

I would like to equip them with better tools and processes because dealing with the existing templates, tweaking parameters, waiting on approvals, and handling merge requests doesn't provide the smoothest workflow for them.

But who could blame them? Product Owners often lack know-how in Git, and even developers might not be familiar with terraform. Some developers have never have never run a Terraform module. Therefore, they often require assistance by our platform team. This slows down their productivity and costs precious resources on our side.

Our Solution:
At this point, we decided to go with a solution that provides UI and API interfaces that made it easy for application teams to provide their own infrastructure. Users can choose the interface that best suits their needs, whether they prefer a graphical interface or programmatic access. This approach significantly streamlines the Azure subscription provisioning process within the GitOps framework.

Also additional services like on-prem connectivity can be deployed easily by the app teams. At the same time, we reinforce a clear and defined shared responsibility model between application teams and the platform team.

meshStack makes this possible by reducing our Platform Teams’s workload, so we can dedicate our efforts to building services. Similarly, meshStack empowers application teams to deploy services on demand. I’m excited about the seamless integration: using the intuitive frontend of the GitOps platform, the App Teams creates well-formed merge requests for our GitOps repo. This system promptly notifies us of any changes, helps validating inputs, and facilitates the approval process.

Best Practice: The 5 Pillars of the Cloud Foundation

The Foundation for your
effective Cloud Journey

The biggest hurdle to cloud transformation is the immense complexity. Technical integration and organizational change must be brought together in a meaningful way. To master this, meshStack is based on the following 5 Cloud Foundation pillars:

Tenant Management

For example, a tenant is an account on AWS, a subscription on Azure, or a project on Google Cloud. A large number of cloud tenants requires good tenant lifecycle management. meshStack enables this across clouds to automate tenant creation and enforce consistent security standards. Goodbye Shadow IT.

More: Tenant Management

Identity & Access Management

Clean management of identities and authorizations in the cloud provider environment is part of a compliant (multi-)cloud strategy. meshStack enables users and roles to be managed consistently across all cloud platforms.

More: Identity & Access Management

Security & Compliance

Comprehensive cloud governance must include cloud security and cloud compliance requirements at its core, while allowing application teams their freedom and autonomy. This includes efficient supply and management of suitable landing zones. For this purpose, meshStack offers the necessary functionalities.

More: Security & Compliance

Cost Management

A successful multi-cloud strategy ensures that all costs are reliably presented and charged. meshStack shows teams the current costs for each project, monitors organizational budgets and supports fully automated billing (chargeback) in the background. Detailed cost and CO2 reporting (when available) enables teams to meet their cost responsibilities.

Billing information dashboard

Service Ecosystem

Organizations using meshStack can seamlessly extend cloud providers’ offerings with organization-specific services (e.g., on-premise connectivity, data services). In the Service Marketplace, teams can offer or consume their own services – in self-service and with integrated cost allocation. This means that a service-based organization can be implemented both technically and economically.

Let us know on our feedback board what you would love to see next in meshStack!

We are excited to announce that we will soon be able to provide you with automated tenant deletion. With this addition to meshStack we will take a huge step into making cloud lifecycle management at scale easy for you. meshStack will completely reduce the manual work required to delete tenants thereby saving time and cost for your cloud foundation.

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has become the best practice to manage their IT Infrastructure. In the future, Application Teams using meshStack will be able to manage the Building Blocks in their workspaces & projects as code using Terraform and API tokens that are scoped to their workspace. This will enable them to have better configuration that is more repeatable, reliable, and integrated into the deployment flows of application teams. We will also add the possibility to manage projects within your workspace via terraform.

We want to provide you with a clear and structured event log that will make it easier for you to find and undestand past user actions. Transparent event logs all in one place will help you with troubleshooting and resolving support issues efficiently.

Workload Identity Federation (WIF) facilitates access for trusted external entities, such as meshStack, to cloud environments including AWS, Azure, and GCP, without the need for explicit credential management. By registering meshStack as a trusted identity provider, WIF offers significant benefits. It eliminates the need for key rotation and eradicates the risk associated with transferring long-lived credentials to third parties.

We are bringing our integrations with OpenStack & Cloud Foundry up to speed with meshStack’s current private cloud capabilities. This means self-service platform configuration, support for landing zones, and updating the quota management system to the new one that is also used for OpenShift. On top of that, we will be updating the technical workings behind the scenes like the use of the newest APIs. This ensures a smooth and future-proof use of OpenStack & Cloud Foundry with meshStack.

At the moment, offering a Platform or Building Block within meshStack is reserved for Cloud Foundation Teams. This is about to change! We will unlock these capabilities within workspaces for everyone. This new functionality will enable more services to be provided by more teams, laying the foundation for a functioning ecosystem of services in companies. Teams will be able to start the development of a Platform and/or Building Block. We will also provide measures for the Cloud Foundation Team to control the services listed in the marketplace service catalog.

Service providers in the marketplace will now have the opportunity to monitor the consumption of their services outside the workspace area. They will gain access to tenant usage reports for the platforms they provide, which will include details on pricing and consumption from the platform provider, as well as the tenant fee for utilizing the landing zone. For Building Blocks, we will furnish a monthly summary detailing the price and consumption for each service you offer to others. This enhanced oversight will facilitate improved accounting practices, enabling providers to adequately cover expenses such as licensing fees and the efforts invested in maintaining and enhancing platform services.

We now offer application teams a seamless experience when accessing platform services from the meshStack Marketplace. Whether you’re seeking a Platform, Building Block, or OSB service, our centralized catalog of the Marketplace is your one-stop destination. Additionally, even users without Workspace access can explore the catalog, allowing application teams to “window shop” Platform Services offered by Cloud Foundation Team.
