Enable application developers to initialize new applications quickly, all built on standard templates. Templates are defined by platform operators using HashiCorp Terraform and can cover multiple different cloud providers, environments, and application stacks.
Developers understand the requirements of their application, such as dependencies like MySQL and Redis, but don’t care about the details of how they are provisioned. Developers can specify their application dependencies easily, and platform operators can define how these dependencies are provisioned using standardized templates.
Platform teams define golden workflows for actions such as building an application, deploying to production, performing a rollback, and other workflows. Developers can execute these workflows with a simple UX, while being abstracted from the details. When issues happen, workflows can be inspected to avoid a black box. HCP Waypoint integrates with your existing CI/CD systems, while providing a consistent abstraction layer.
Platform and operations teams need a catalog of applications, golden paths and workflows. Having a central catalog of the applications and associated metadata enables teams to quickly answer operational questions.
As the shift to cloud continues, enterprises are rethinking application delivery. They need to consistently provision and manage a variety of tools and infrastructure, while also providing a consistent experience for their developers. With HashiCorp Waypoint, platform teams can define golden patterns and workflows that enable application teams to build and maintain applications at scale. Platform teams typically adopt Waypoint in three stages:
Adopt a consistent developer experience for their development teams
Standardize application patterns and workflows to get application teams running quickly
Scale application management by executing golden workflows to build, deploy, and beyond from a single UI for all your applications
Waypoint enables platform teams define golden patterns and workflows for developers to manage applications at scale. Get started today.
