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 improbable – hence the term “unicorn”. Today, with a SaaS startup that gets roughly unicorn status every 3 days, the often-celebrated victories make it easy to overlook the grueling behind-the-scenes process of building and deploying software for customers. For the developers involved, the job doesn’t end with writing lines of code that work. The many steps required for SaaS solutions to work at the customer’s premises include verifying the software in 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 precise, with each misstep directly increasing launch time. So how can software developers (especially those who pride themselves on delivering projects on time) speed up the time taken by DevOps?
Save resources with powerful automation
This is exactly the problem that Convox was designed to solve. By intelligently replacing the lengthy code development process and DevOps teams with a single button, Convox saves software developers the time and resources necessary for rapid deployment. In this way, organizations can automate the arduous task of maintaining an additional department performing repetitive and unattractive tasks.
CEO Brian Galura gets a feel for this problem by experiencing it firsthand. In his old life, he was part of a 100-person technical operations team for a large SaaS company. Responsible for managing the code deployment, the team tested and deployed code after code, doing the boring “magic” that made the software available for customers to use and enjoy.
Convox is for 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 projects. at 3 months, etc. Especially when managing multiple clients and projects simultaneously, Convox facilitates the process of standardizing tasks and processes to consistently deliver client projects on time and profitable fashion. In addition, Convox supports most cloud providers it is therefore not necessary to change supplier in most cases.
The “ease of use” area is fairly well covered (automatic deployment of a command, rapid restorations, twelve-factor applications by default, simple but powerful abstractions from the underlying platforms).
With a strong track record of deploying, managing and scaling code for hundreds of notable businesses, Convox is committed to translating its unique industry knowledge and experience into a leading solution that delivers measurable value to organizations that are held back by their manual processes.
To commit to 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 enduring the pain of send the software code. to customers.
“I’ve seen teams fail. I’ve also seen companies fail to deliver value throughout the software development lifecycle. an evolutionary way. “
The idea of Convox really appealed to Brian because he knew it was exactly the solution he wanted to have access to when he was having trouble deploying code.
In trying to solve this problem, Brian has developed solutions similar to Convox on more than one occasion – for other teams and clients. He also worked on systems built by others, comparable to Convox in some ways. He hopes to bring all of his skills and experience in this area to using this product to make the life of developers and teams that much easier.
Experts agree that the human factor is the main bottleneck in the software deployment process – not the tools or technical capabilities available. Often times, people may prefer to maintain control over parts of the process in their comfort zones – usually at the expense 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.
