Fugue debuts free cloud migration tool for Amazon Web Services


Cloud infrastructure management company Fugue Inc. has just introduced a free version of its flagship cloud orchestration tool at Amazon Web Services’ AWS re:Invent conference.

Fugue’s product attempts to simplify some of the most pressing challenges that companies face when they move their infrastructure to the cloud, which is finding experienced personnel who know how to manage massive complexity while ensuring regulatory compliance. Fugue enables DevOps engineers to easily program and orchestrate the entire lifecyle of their Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure service stack in a systematic way.

Fugue cofounder and Chief Executive Josh Stella said the free version of the company’s product introduced at the conference (* disclosure below) would serve as an entry point for developers and cloud engineers wishing to migrate to the cloud. “It is meant to add immediate value to individuals who provision, maintain, operate and terminate cloud environments on a routine basis,” he said.

Fugue said in a statement that its free version is useful for cloud-based community projects and for beginners. It allows single users to provision and orchestrate multiple AWS cloud environments, with Fugue actively managing the infrastructure state and correcting for configuration drift. Fugue’s free version also comes with online documentation and free email support services, with an option to increase the level of support for a price.

The platform is compatible with many modern workloads and DevOps toolchains, and is able to simplify a significant number of cloud-native use cases, the company said. These include immutable infrastructure, container-based and serverless cloud services, microservices and blue/green deployments.

Fugue said its platform is already being used by a number of Fortune 100 customers to help them deliver advanced cloud operations capabilities in areas such as collaboration and next-generation enforcement of regulatory compliance.

“Fugue provides an extensible foundation for scalable cloud operations that gives enterprises the ability to quickly adopt cloud for use in development and testing environments,” said Rob Daly, CEO of Stelligent, an AWS Premier Consulting Partner. “With Fugue, enterprises can increase the speed of innovation delivery, eliminate infrastructure maintenance burdens and ensure enterprise IT standards are continuously met.”

Fugue is demonstrating its free product at the re:Invent event in Las Vegas, which runs from Nov. 28 to Dec. 2.
