Buddy – Decentralized Development Automation Platform

Buddy is a winning development automation platform that serves a rapidly growing market. Their vision is to become the backbone on which talented people can build world-altering apps & services. Their goal is to take the load off millions of developers by offloading everything that can be automated – giving them back the time for being creative.

Problem

Large organizations run hundreds of builds, tests and other DevOps tasks every day. Some companies execute thousands of tests every day, and all take hours to complete. In order to build faster (and get results faster), they invest heavily in their build infrastructure. As a result, their enterprise DevOps infrastructure is complex, costly and requires 24/7 maintenance. But this is not where the business value is. It’s in shipping—not configuring or maintaining. There is also the challenge of parallelism. To speed up delivery times and eliminate unnecessary queues, organizations want to do as much as possible simultaneously. Not only run multiple pipelines at once, but also execute builds and actions within pipelines at the same time. This requires intensive effort planning and configuring. This is another pressure on the infrastructure, as it requires proper isolation.

Buddy Solutions

The Idea
Buddy has over 80 carefully crafted automation actions that help users develop and deploy software. The actions are arranged into pipelines, making building, testing and deploying just a matter of a few clicks—even when it comes to complex applications & multi-cloud workflows. To further extend accessibility, the platform is open to third party developers, who can deliver their own actions within the Buddy ecosystem and use them in their own development automation pipelines.

Private Automation GRID

The Idea

The idea is to create a network (GRID) of Buddy instances that will use auto-discovery and replication capabilities to create High Availability auto-scalable infrastructure for development & deployment automation. Depending on workflows and policies, users can choose if they want to use their own bare-metal infrastructure, a private cloud, or IaaS to run Buddy instances.

All Things Private
DevOps is critical to business and, at its core, it cannot fully rely on distributed resources such as home-based computers (fog computing). High latency times, reliability issues and security concerns are a no-go for Enterprises. Instead, Buddy’s decentralization happens on top of a trusted infrastructure, with the user in full control of what is trusted.

Auto-Scaling
Once new Buddy instances appear in the network, they automatically decide on their roles. The first two create a master-master replication to create a High Availability system. Every next instance will be used as an agent to run more pipelines in parallel. If allowed, Buddy can create new and remove redundant instances onthe-fly, depending on the load. It can use integrations with IaaS providers for this, such as AWS or Google Cloud, or use other trusted Buddy GRIDs provided directly by Buddy or certified partners.
