At Infuy, we are committed to utilizing the most advanced DevOps tools and methodologies to enhance our software development process and optimize our workflow. By leveraging Infuy’s DevOps tools, we ensure a seamless transition from development to production, while maintaining high-quality standards and fostering collaboration among our teams.

In our DevOps pipeline, we utilize several key tools to manage different aspects of the development lifecycle:

Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) – Terraform

We employ Terraform to automate and manage our infrastructure on AWS, enabling us to create, modify, and destroy resources efficiently and securely.

CI/CD – Jenkins

Our continuous integration and continuous deployment processes are powered by Jenkins, an open-source automation server that facilitates building, testing, and deploying our software.

Configuration as a Code – Chef

With Chef, we manage our server configurations and automate infrastructure provisioning, ensuring consistent configurations across our environments.

Cloud Provider – AWS

We rely on Amazon Web Services (AWS) as our cloud provider, offering a wide range of services that help us build and scale our applications with ease.

Monitoring – Prometheus

We use Prometheus for monitoring our applications and infrastructure, providing valuable insights into system performance and enabling us to proactively address potential issues.

Some more dev ops tools

In addition to these core tools, we also utilize a variety of other DevOps tools, such as Puppet, Citrix, Sonarqube, Maven, Artifactory, GitFlow, GitHub, GitLab, ArgoCI, GitOps, AWS DevOps Tools, Azure DevOps Tools, Vault, Jira, Logstash, Kibana, Nexus, Selenium, Lazy Git, and Lens, to further streamline our development process and ensure our solutions remain cutting-edge.
