MIAMI, FL/ACCESSWIRE/January 3, 2022/ The statistical probability of a SaaS startup reaching $1 billion in valuation 7 years ago was very low. Some would even say unlikely – hence the term “unicorn”. Today, with a SaaS startup achieving unicorn status around every 3 days, the oft-celebrated victories make it easy to forget the grueling behind-the-scenes process of building and deploying software to customers. For the developers involved, the work doesn’t stop at writing lines of code that work. The many steps required to get SaaS solutions working at the customer include checking software into version control systems, deploying to web servers, load balancing, and more.
These time-consuming tasks that burden software developers all make up a discipline called DevOps (i.e. Development and Operations). Traditionally, these processes are time-consuming and precision-intensive, with each misstep directly increasing launch time. So how can software developers (especially those who pride themselves on delivering their projects on time) speed up the time taken by DevOps?
Save resources with powerful automation
This is exactly the problem Convox was built to solve. By cleverly replacing the lengthy code development process and DevOps teams with a single button, Convox saves software developers the time and resources needed for rapid deployment. This way, organizations can automate the daunting task of maintaining an extra department performing repeatable and uninteresting tasks.
CEO, Brian Galura’s insight into this issue comes from living the first-hand experience. In his former life, he was part of a 100-person technical operations team for a large SaaS company. Responsible for managing the code rollout, the team tested and deployed code after code, performing the annoying “magic” that made the software available for customers to use and enjoy.
Convox is aimed at organizations that lack the capacity and resources to manage hundreds of DevOps engineers – publishing companies, digital agencies, consulting firms with less than 100 software developers working on 2-3 month projects, etc Especially when managing multiple clients and projects simultaneously, Convox facilitates the process of standardizing tasks and processes to consistently deliver client projects in a timely and profitable fashion. In addition, Convox supports most cloud providers it is therefore not necessary to change provider in most cases.
The “Ease of use” corner is pretty well covered (one-command auto-deployment, quick restores, twelve factor applications by default, simple but powerful abstractions of the underlying platforms).
With a strong track record of deploying, managing, and scaling code for hundreds of notable enterprises, Convox is committed to translating its unique industry vision and experience into a cutting-edge solution that delivers measurable value to organizations that are held back by their manual processes.
To continue its commitment to achieving this goal, the company recently reorganized its management and ownership structure.
Building from experience
Having spent over 15 years in various technical roles in software companies (software developer, software engineer, technical operations engineer, cloud and enterprise architecture, etc.), Brian has spent a lot of time going through the pain of shipment of software code. to customers.
“I’ve seen teams fail. I’ve also seen companies fail to deliver value throughout the software development lifecycle. That’s why the opportunity to get involved with Convox really resonated with me. – because I wanted to solve these problems for other customers, in a scalable way.”
The Convox idea really appealed to Brian because he knew it was exactly the solution he wanted access to when he was having trouble deploying code.
In trying to solve this problem, Brian has created solutions similar to Convox on more than one occasion – for other teams and clients. He has also worked on systems built by others, comparable to Convox in some ways. He hopes to bring all his skills and experience in this field to the use of this product to make life easier for developers and teams.
Experts agree that the human factor is the number one bottleneck encountered in the software deployment process – not the tools or technical capabilities available. Often people may prefer to keep control over parts of the process within their comfort areas – usually to the detriment of entire projects. By dramatically reducing the steps behind these processes, Convox allows companies to free up capacity for their engineers to take control of less sensitive tasks.
