VEXXHOST's Managed Zuul offering ensures that the capabilities of Zuul, the CI/CD platform, are correctly delivered to you. We also provide you with the necessary support for it while you enjoy the many benefits of the tool - here is a detailed look.

VEXXHOST's Managed Zuul Solution

VEXXHOST's Managed Zuul solution gives you a continuous integration and continuous delivery tool (CI/CD) that is capable of stopping broken code from merging. With Zuul, the code can only merge if it passes all the tests. Furthermore, being open-source, any enterprise can harness the power of Zuul. The open source nature is just the tip of the iceberg - here are seven benefits our Zuul solution can get you.

1. Project Gating

It is Zuul's systematic project gating capability that ensures code passes all tests before merging. The platform also provides that you benefit from cross-project dependencies, cross-project testing, and parallel testing, making your projects more efficient and saving time.

2. Fully Managed Service

With VEXXHOST's Zuul solution, you get a fully managed service and all the support you need to maintain it. You don't have to worry about the infrastructure components that support the system - we take care of all of it. Additionally, we are well-versed in the Zuul solution. We use it as an external solution, and internally - we regularly test the platform against our cloud infrastructure and operations.

3. Deep Ansible Integration

An Ansible ecosystem in combination with Zuul can aid all your third-party modules. Through VEXXHOST's Managed Zuul solution, you benefit from this deep Ansible integration whereby you can deploy software anywhere between VMs, bare metal, containers, and network switches. Ansible also helps you handle your orchestration needs.

4. Multi-Cloud Capability

As an efficient CI/CD tool, Zuul offers a solid multi-cloud capability to its users. Hence, VEXXHOST's Managed Zuul offering can help you regardless of whether your cloud runs on OpenStack, Kubernetes, OpenShift, AWS EC2, or something else.

5. Dynamic Configurations

Zuul's flexible configurations and multi-repository dependencies mean that you don't have many limitations to face. The platform is highly flexible - you can create ad hoc CI tests for your current projects and use different development platforms such as GitHub, Gerrit, etc., with ease.

6. Scalability

Zuul can handle big or small tasks alike! Zuul takes care of huge workloads such as OpenStack and is also ideal for small and medium workloads. With our years-worth experience running and providing both platforms, you get a scalable tool and a reputed service provider.

7. Drives Innovation

Through an automated multi-cloud merging process, you have control over workloads, manage hybrid workflows, and have an integrated DevOps system. All these factors help drive innovation in your endeavors, letting you focus on your strengths.
