Agile Transformation Teams
Our Agile Transformation Teams are comprised of four engineers, all holding advanced and professional-level certifications on the most in-demand cloud platforms and cloud native tools. Through our fractional team pricing, you can have the expertise of an entire team for less than the cost of one FTE. Whether you approach all of your workloads from a cloud native perspective, or you are just beginning your cloud journey, our experts can help you evaluate the benefits and costs up front, migrate seamlessly and efficiently, and iterate using the latest cloud native tools like microservices, including containerized workloads deployed on Kubernetes. As an audited AWS Managed Service Partner we can also manage your environment to ensure optimization, cost control, and security. Our SREs are available 24/7 to support your needs.
Skip the learning curve and eliminate the risks of costly mistakes. Know your projected costs before migration and ensure that your migration and deployments are smooth and timely. Working with an experienced cloud partner removes uncertainties and shortens timelines. Blue Sentry can also train your infrastructure team to help you develop your own in-house expertise.
Blue Sentry's DevOps Consulting Services
Your Blue Sentry transformation team will design and implement “infrastructure-as-code” templates to automate the creation of your network topology, compute, storage, security, and cloud native services for the deployment of your workloads. Using these templates and protecting them as “immutable artifacts” eliminates human error and allows you to deploy and scale with confidence. Quickly spin up low-cost test environments that mirror production, implement disaster recovery or deploy production workloads. All can be easily done and you can trust that security, performance and reliability are “baked in” to every deployment so there is no need to recreate the wheel each time a new need arises.
Your CI/CD pipeline is as critical to your business health as a primary artery is to your own well-being. We can work with your team to establish best practices and to build processes and source control for both infrastructure and application codes to ensure that your CI/CD pipeline flows without a glitch.
The goal is to provide automated “full-stack” workload deployment, minimizing the time and overhead required to move from idea to product feature and to maximize the time your engineering team spends developing value for your customers. We will guide your team in the adoption of the “Transformation Trifecta" -- DevOps culture and process, Agile ceremonies and processes, and transformative cloud infrastructure services.
Why Outsource Infrastructure in the DevOps Process?
Let’s face it. We all have limited time and we must focus that time on our most productive activities. For cloud infrastructure your team may be able to “figure it out” given enough time and a few experiments. But is that really the best use of resources? Many of our customers come to us after first attempting to build their infrastructure themselves only to have lackluster results. In the end, after cost overruns and extended timelines, they want to work with a partner who has the expertise and experience to do it right from the beginning. Even if your ultimate goal is to manage your own infrastructure, it can be cost-effective to work with a partner to set up your workloads, establish your infrastructure code, and set up proper governance. For those who would prefer to stay focused on their highest business priorities and not be distracted by managing infrastructure, Blue Sentry provides a turnkey solution with 24/7 support. Your team is free to work on your core product or service while we support your environment with industry-leading infrastructure solutions.
Blue Sentry is an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, audited AWS Managed Service Provider, and a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) — which means you can trust us to support all of your cloud infrastructure needs. We serve mid-market and enterprise-level companies, many with HITRUST environments in financial services and healthcare.
