Stackery enables enterprise development teams to seamlessly integrate Serverless computing into their DevOps workflows.
The company was founded in 2016 by Nate Taggart and Chase Douglas. As early adopters of AWS Lambda, Nate and Chase found themselves in need of a software tool that allowed them to work with serverless computing, without spending large amounts of time in setup and configuration.
Individual developers along with teams of all sizes can quickly get serverless dev environments up and running and start building with just a few clicks, and develop functions against live AWS resources and manage every environment in the pipeline from a centralized operations console that integrates with existing CI/CD tools including a Visual Studio plugin, bridging local and serverless environments.
Stackery’s environment management ensures you have a clear view across your serverless pipeline into which versions of your code and infrastructure are running. By integrating with your existing CI/CD system, your release and test engineering processes can also stay the same.
Stackery allows developers to build features without needing to spend unnecessary time on tools. Centralized deployment automation, new service bootstrapping, and multiple environments come standard out of the box.
Their white paper describes how serverless teams can write application code directly to their serverless cloud environments, backed up by the Git-based version control of their choice.
In addition, all of the infrastructure code that is used to provision and configure CloudFormation resources is versioned and backed up to GitHub as well.
“Fast-growing companies use AWS Lambda to build architecture with limitless scalability.
Stackery is the way teams build and manage serverless infrastructure quickly.”
AWS Serverless Application Model
It provides shorthand syntax to express functions, APIs, databases, and event source mappings. With just a few lines per resource, you can define the application you want and model it using YAML. During deployment, SAM transforms and expands the SAM syntax into AWS CloudFormation syntax, enabling you to build serverless applications faster.
CEO Nate Taggart discusses how Stackery builds on SAM in this NewStack article.
Customers include Sightbox. CTO Matt Wallington describes how Stackery has enabled them to achieve the utopia Cloud computing has long promised – A complete freedom from operational infrastructure management such that their team can be made up entirely of developers who are focused on writing code that adds business value.
