Quali, a provider of Environments-as-a-Service infrastructure automation and management solutions, announced updates to its Torque platform for accelerated infrastructure delivery speeds, and increased cost accountability and management with limited risk. With enhanced end-to-end control plane capabilities for multi-cloud, laC, virtual, and container environments, Torque is able to prioritize and unify infrastructure orchestration for development operations practitioners within a single platform.
Torque streamlines infrastructure automation across organizations, helping to bridge the gap between operation and developer teams. Acting as a control plane, Torque stitches together technology both on the infrastructure platform and with multiple container technologies. This allows users to blueprint powerful environments for accelerated release times with higher quality, according to the vendor. Torque also confronts the problem of unused and unrecognized assets among users, providing asset discovery to decrease time expenditure.
“As infrastructure technologies continue to evolve, many organizations we work with are finding it difficult to understand and manage the infrastructure their businesses rely on,” said Edan Evantal, CTO at Quali. “Over the years, freedom of choice for developers has resulted in complex and disparate tools throughout the DevOps toolchain. Companies are now looking for solutions like Torque to help standardize and develop complete visibility into their infrastructure, so they can release faster with higher quality, manage cloud costs, better enforce security policies, and ensure compliance.”
Some of the newest features of Torque include automated discovery and importation of infrastructure configurations, automated identification and modeling of infrastructure assets for blueprinted environments; applying governance automation, sharable and scalable infrastructure; automated detection of changes located between configurations and environments, cost predictability of cloud expenditures, as well as workflow and service management integration via tools like ServiceNow, Ansible, Docker, Jira, and AWS Cloud Formation.
Quali utilizes three conceptual pillars to guide the priorities of future enhancements to Torque: orchestration and automation of infrastructure from the infrastructure itself to the application stack, self-service to designers and users via an accessible marketplace for environment consumption, and governance ranging from security to consumption policies. Updates to the system will adhere to a balance between these three pillars, according to the vendor.
In the future, users can expect a release from Quali involving a new professional tier between their pre-existing free and enterprise tiers. This will allow for small to medium-sized enterprises to be able to enjoy the benefits of Torque, widening the user market for Quali.
