Maximizing FIYU Development Capacity with Microtica’s DevOps Automation
FIYU, a PaaS solution for Rapid Application Development, is essentially based on advanced automation capabilities that simplify and speed up development. To streamline the infrastructure setup and application deployment process, a cloud DevOps automation platform by Microtica was a very suitable partnership solution. The development, deployment and monitoring of applications were streamlined regardless of the infrastructure used. This case study explores our collaborative efforts, highlighting the utilization of standard APIs, remarkable provisioning acceleration achieved, the cloud DevOps automation platform and integration process, reflecting the technical expertise and success of the partnership.
Cloud application deployment and DevOps automation itself are complex and therefore can decrease performance efficiency. Microtica’s intuitive APIs are used to eliminate manual intervention, streamline and speed up the infrastructure setup process, automate the deployment process, decrease DevOps costs and speed up the final customer onboarding process. Also, the aim is to eliminate potential bottlenecks and reduce the chances of errors or inconsistencies.
Since the FIYU team is taking care of any custom development as well as customer onboarding and support, Microtica provided a solution that the FIYU team accessed through API and Developer Console, empowering them to track the processes in detail.
Pipelines for efficient deployment and continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) processes within the FIYU ecosystem were set up.
Microtica’s DevOps automation APIs facilitated the integration of powerful cloud automation functionality into the FIYU PaaS. The integration process was successfully completed in less than a month.
The solution automated the delivery of containerized applications on Kubernetes, incorporating built-in CI/CD pipelines, Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) templates, and centralized monitoring and optimization. App configuration and scaling can be managed through a user-friendly UI, and code pushes to Git automatically deploys apps on the cloud. The cooperation also involved provisioning the necessary cloud resources, configuring network components and ensuring secure communication between services for a reliable and robust infrastructure.
Integration of Microtica’s solution with FIYU modules and libraries further enhances the provisioning process and reduces the time spent on environment setup. It also enables progress tracking and supports workflow branching so failures can be quickly identified and the deployment process is smoother.
The collaboration between FIYU and Microtica has successfully transformed the infrastructure setup and application deployment processes for the FIYU platform. By using standard APIs, advanced automation capabilities and a seamless integration, FIYU now benefits from streamlined workflows, reduced time to market and significant cost savings. This partnership exemplifies the power of innovative solutions and close collaboration in driving digital transformation and delivering exceptional results for businesses.
“Microtica and FIYU collaborated to revolutionize infrastructure setup and application deployment. The FIYU team showcased exceptional technical knowledge and soft skills, enabling the smooth implementation of FIYU + Microtica solution. The integration of the APIs seamlessly automated infrastructure setup, allowing FIYU to focus on core application development. The robust pipelines established facilitated continuous integration and delivery. This collaboration enhanced scalability, flexibility and delivered a seamless user experience within the FIYU platform.”, Marija Naumovska, Co-founder & Head of Growth, Microtica
“We consider and describe FIYU as a Rapid application development platform. What greatly contributes to that definition is one of our main goals: “As much as we want to enable faster software delivery, we also must find a way to deliver FIYU faster”. Having that in mind, our partnership with Microtica came naturally as we found a way to automate preparation steps for software development and Microtica gave us much needed automation boost towards infrastructure with their intuitive services and useful tools.”, Saša Ivičević – Director of software engineering and FIYU Product Manager
The intuitive APIs provided by Microtica allowed FIYU team to save significant time and effort while establishing a robust and reliable infrastructure. The seamless integration between Microtica and FIYU enabled highly efficient and automated deployment processes. Tasks like creating and setting up databases, creating GitLab repositories, generating seed projects for frontend and backend and deploying the services to the correct AWS cluster are efficiently automated.
- more 10 new PaaS instances can be deployed per day
- customer onboarding process accelerated by 7x
- 80% reduction in DevOps costs
The platform now provides developers with an easy-to-use environment for building and deploying their applications. The integration of Microtica’s APIs also made it possible for the team to create new full-stack development environments tailored to their specific needs.
