Applications need to be tailored to each specific cloud, and solving for cloud customizability is as complex as a code management problem. Each cloud has its own services, APIs, and conventions which lead to developers navigating multiple sets of documentation depending on the cloud provider in order to get applications up and running successfully.
When onboarding a new client, Digitas has to:
Spin up a brand new K8s environment for the particular client
Configure everything to ensure it is running smoothly (usually involves writing custom Terraform scripts)
Ensure all applications are good to go for production
Rather than continuing to do this manual process themselves, Digitas chose Plural to help them deploy open-source applications on Kubernetes.
“Plural creates an optimal setup to install these applications on Kubernetes and Postgres databases that back each one. Having all of the batteries included is a win for me and the team.”
