The growth of cloud native applications and databases underscores the desire for simpler, quicker, and cost effective delivery of applications to customers. Organizations are rearchitecting applications to run on top of the services provided by cloud technology vendors to ensure better availability and ease scale-out while lowering operational costs. However, as teams race to deploy decoupled, service-architecture based cloud native applications, the lack of corresponding agility and resilience in the data layer undermines the promises of faster releases and lower costs.
Data Teams are Not Cloud Ready
Managing the underlying data is often the most painful part of developing cloud native applications. A lot of manual work is required to make sure database change management is in-sync with application changes. Cloud native applications are stateless, but the database is stateful. That means organizations cannot simply rely on application release automation tools because they do not manage and track changes to database state. While the rest of the cloud application release process benefits from automation, managing and deploying database changes is by far the slowest and riskiest part of the application release process.
Transform Database Deployments to Unleash the Power of the Cloud
Datical partners with cloud technology vendors such as Pivotal to validate, automate, and track database changes through the release pipeline. Datical ensures that database releases are transformed into a simple, repeatable process that is synchronized with application releases. This new database deployment and application release process can be completed in a few minutes, instead of days or weeks, enabling enterprises to realize the benefits of continuous delivery for cloud-native applications.
