Cloudogu simplifies the administration of software-development tools

The Cloudogu GmbH makes the administration of tools for software development and project management even easier in the spirit of the LowOps concept. To this end, it has added an Admin Dogu to its Cloudogu EcoSystem. At the same time, the Cloudogu EcoSystem grows by three new tools.

The Cloudogu EcoSystem is a virtual LowOps platform. With over 15 tools in the area of software development and project management (containerized as Dogus) and automated upgrades, it allows complete toolchains to be conveniently deployed and operated. This significantly reduces the administration effort, software development and administration teams can focus on value-adding tasks.

Now Cloudogu has simplified administration even further: The new Admin Dogu allows installed Dogus to be started and stopped conveniently via a user interface. With the extended debug mode, log data from all tools can be collected centrally and made available for analysis.

Three new tools in the Cloudogu EcoSystem offer users even more options:

  • BlueSpice: With the Wiki software from HalloWelt! knowledge can be bundled, structured and shared quickly and reliably. In addition to Cloudogu’s own tool Smeagol, users have another wiki to choose from.
  • Teamscale: The code analysis tool from CQSE supports developers in analyzing, monitoring and optimizing the quality of their software. It complements SonarQube from Sonar for static code analysis.
  • Baseline: Cloudogu’s new Dogu can be used to create snapshots of own releases across all relevant tools (e.g. SCM, Build Server, Issue Tracker) and thus ensure documentation for audits.

Currently, the Cloudogu EcoSystem comprises over 15 tools, including Redmine, Easy Redmine, Atlassian Jira and Confluence, Portainer, Jenkins CI and Nexus Repository. Cloudogu works closely with partners to continuously expand its product portfolio. In addition, there is a special focus on consistently implementing the LowOps idea, for example by expanding the Admin Dogus. “We want to support development and administration teams in the best possible way through automation, standardization and generalization, thus significantly reducing their effort. With this LowOps concept, companies gain more flexibility and improve their transformability, which means they can react faster and more successfully to changes,” explains Ninawaty Nyhuis, Product Owner Cloudogu EcoSystem at Cloudogu.
