Shipa, a cloud native application management framework provider, has emerged from stealth to launch with $3.75 million in seed funding.
With Kubernetes, there is no application-centric way to manage an application throughout its lifecycle. Developers are instead forced to interact with myriad infrastructure components that are technically challenging and eat up time that is more advantageously spent writing code and building products.
Shipa has developed an application-centric framework that solves these problems across the entire application lifecycle – and with easy integration into existing CI/CD workflows.
Shipa automatically creates all required Kubernetes objects and configuration files, and deploys them to all clusters requiring them.
Importantly, Shipa does this while continuing to provide developers with application-level context. Shipa also claims to provide a comprehensive set of out-of-the-box integrations to common tools.
For platform and DevOps engineers, Shipa provides the tools to maintain application availability, continually meet security requirements, and keep developers productive across multiple clusters and providers.
The founding team brings technical and business leadership experience from CloudBees (Jenkins), VMware, NeuVector, Juniper Networks, and Oracle.
