“As the ecosystem matures, software like Stackery’s Serverless Operations Console is going to unlock a lot of the market, as most companies have been waiting for operational safeguards before making the switch.”
Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 28, 2017
Stackery announced today the general availability of its Serverless Operations Console. Stackery consists of a set of software tools that will allow developers to bring a control and visibility over their serverless applications, and in so doing, address the biggest impediment to wide-scale adoption of this new technology. Stackery fulfills the engineering needs for automation, predictable performance, and operational control required by companies moving production-grade workloads to serverless architectures.
Over the past two years, AWS Lambda has attracted significant enterprise interest, particularly from companies within the media, retail, logistics and finance sectors. Applications running on serverless architectures, such as Lambda, scale up and down on demand with high availability without the need to provision or manage servers. Serverless also provides a clear cost benefit as companies pay only for the time – down to a fraction of a second – when their code is actually executing, avoiding significant infrastructure waste.
Yet, in spite of these benefits, serverless architectures still only represent a small share of the market, due to the well-founded uncertainty of being able to easily integrate them into operations. While serverless represents a shift in operational responsibility, from company to cloud provider, for scaling and managing the underlying servers, companies are still responsible for developing, deploying, monitoring, and maintaining the health of their application. As with any transformative technology, early interest has driven some leading enterprises to build their own internal, one-off tools in an attempt to address these needs, leaving the bulk of the market on the sideline to wait as the ecosystem matures.
Recognizing this challenge, Nate Taggart and Chase Douglas co-founded Stackery in 2016. Taggart and Douglas started working together as early employees of New Relic in 2013, where they joined forces to build and launch New Relic Browser. After New Relic’s IPO, they left to begin working together on side projects using AWS Lambda. Their expertise in serverless architectures, and awareness of the operational challenges of this promising technology, inspired them to launch Stackery.
The Stackery team has spent the last year building its Serverless Operations Console, which today officially came out of Beta. This software helps developers build and operate production-grade serverless applications by providing an abstraction layer on top of base serverless technologies like AWS Lambda, Kinesis Streams, and API Gateway. And in so doing, allows developers to focus on their business logic rather than configuring infrastructure services. Specifically, Stackery allows developers to easily design serverless architectures, automate deployment of both infrastructure and applications, integrate with version control software, manage environment configuration, and monitor application and infrastructure health with error tracking, logging, and metric collection.

“We’re using our experience building world-class developer tools at New Relic to ensure that companies of all sizes can successfully navigate the shift to serverless and empower their developers to unleash their creativity instead of focusing on mundane server management,” said Taggart, who serves as CEO of the Portland-based company, Stackery. “As the ecosystem matures, software like Stackery’s Serverless Operations Console is going to unlock a lot of the market, as most companies have been waiting for operational safeguards before making the switch.”
Stackery’s Serverless Operations Console provides intuitive automation, predictable performance, and operational control over serverless applications and infrastructure. Founded in 2016 and backed by Techstars and Voyager Capital, Stackery is leading the shift to Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS), so companies of all sizes can take advantage of reduced infrastructure costs and improved time-to-market to create more value for their customers, with the operational control and visibility they require for their production workloads.
Stackery is headquartered in Portland, OR. For more information, visit https://www.stackery.io, read the company blog, and follow us on twitter: @stackeryio
