Introduction

Welcome to Argonaut!

Introduction

Argonaut is a control layer that automates infrastructure provisioning, deployments, and helps teams navigate a complex DevOps landscape.

⏰ TLDR

  1. Automatically generate infra as code using terraform on your cloud
  2. App deployment automation - CI / CD with github integrations
  3. Deep integrations of observability and a host of other tools into your workflow in one click

🤕 The problem

  1. Teams don't realize they spend 30% of their time on infrastructure wrangling
  2. All companies go through a similar trajectory of building infrastructure that looks something like
    1. Single production environment with direct deploys
    2. Multiple environments but no logging or monitoring
    3. Introduce CI / CD
    4. Hire a team and migrate onto kubernetes
    5. Introduce terraform or other IaC
  3. Hiring good DevOps engineers is hard
  4. This leads to anti-patterns such as
    1. Observability of services and infrastructure is an after-thought
    2. Platform security best practices are not built into the product from the get-go
    3. Planning for a stack migration from say, Elastic Beanstalk onto ECS
  5. Navigating the multitude of tools to be integrated is a pain.
  6. This is a detraction from building stuff that users want

This is a multi person-year evolution that all orgs go through.

✨🧪 The solution

Argonaut is a control center to manage infrastructure, deployments, and third party apps on your cloud which provides:

  1. Git based workflows for infrastructure and application management
  2. Fully integrated with your favorite tools (github, aws, terraform, datadog, grafana, ...) and a full fledged third party app library
  3. You have full source and configurations of what is running on your cloud
  4. No lock in. We hate lock-in as much as you do.
  5. Made for fast paced startups, with no limitations on what you can do external to Argonaut

🙋 Who is it for?

  • You just don't have the time for infrastructure automation and CI/CD.
    • Bonus: you are doing this fully aware that you will have to pay the debt a few months down the line?
  • You need to migrate off Heroku to AWS but don't want to think about it now
    • Eg. once your credits run out, or you need services like RDS, S3, managed queues etc.
    • You split your resources between heroku and aws
  • You think setting up observability stacks and letsencrypt are should be automated in 2021
  • You want multiple environments setup without hassle
  • You want to get started with kubernetes but are skeptical of the challenges (and rightfully so)
  • You can't seem to find a DevOps person

If you answered YES to any of those questions, we should talk.
