Orca is purpose-built to get IT operations teams out of ‘Dependency Hell’, that doom loop where ‘changing this, breaks that’. IT teams and their managers no longer have to put up with that wasted time, hassle and money. – Joe Senner, Orca co-founder

Trifectix, Inc., an Austin area IT automation company debuts their app-centric and middleware configuration management solution, Orca. http://www.orcaconfig.com. A human-friendly DevOps solution focusing on visibility, control, and scripting-free automation for Windows, Orca will be the cure for many web application breaks and configuration chaos.
A completely different approach: Application and Middleware-focused, not Server focused.
While many IT automation companies focus mainly on server and operating systems configurations, Orca takes a completely different approach. Orca starts where its customers start, at the business critical, web based applications like e-commerce and support portals that run their enterprise. Systems architects and other Dev team members often see servers, whether physical or virtual, as a means to an end. For the first time, IT teams can use visual, drag and drop tools to map and bulk-manage key relationships between their apps and their middleware.
Unique Windows capabilities
Orca’s uniqueness does not stop with it’s focus on applications and middleware. Nearly all new IT automation companies cater exclusively to the Linux market.
That leaves 70% of the market, Windows IT shops, without a solution that caters to the uniqueness of Windows.
Until Orca, Windows users were faced with quite a dilemma, whether to create a custom workaround tool or to repurpose an off the shelf tool that was designed with a completely different use case in mind. Orca was created to give IT teams a powerful Windows configuration management solution, without the compromises of workarounds.
Don’t just detect drift. Correct drift. Automatically.
IT operations teams currently spend a lot of time planning and implementing seemingly routine configuration changes. These planning cycles can last weeks and involve tens or hundreds of labor and management hours. In addition to routine changes, too often, IT teams find themselves in fire-fighting mode, trying to quickly discover and recover from drift in their configurations. Survey results indicate that Orca users can save on average 32% of IT teams’ time by reducing the time and hassle dedicated to middleware and application-related configuration changes.
Orca features intuitive, at-a-glance drift detection, automated remediation, and a color coded compliance heat map powered by Orca’s proprietary Configuration Normalization Engine (CNE). The CNE normalizes dynamic and file based configurations and provides IT with the ability to set custom compliance rules. All of the application relationships and configuration changes are viewed and managed within one centralized console.
Moving past the “Do-Undo-Redo” cycle, delivering ROI.
Using Orca, engineers manage configurations beyond the app release cycle. Now they can see, understand and control ramifications before they accidentally cause a negative outcome. These insights drive the time-savings, error-proofing and ROI behind streamlined app migrations, website creations, and other configuration changes.
Team Orca has built powerful IT Automation tools before.
Team Orca founders are veterans at improving and automating once-painful IT processes. They started Build Forge (now part of IBM) to accelerate software delivery. Later they started Varalogix (now part of BMC) to take the risk and uncertainty out of web application deployment. Now Team Orca is excited to improve life for IT teams by streamlining time consuming, money wasting, overly complex configuration processes that many have just taken for granted for too long.
