  • Secure Docker Builds

    Our platform allows for the running of Docker Image Native as Docker Build. To achieve this, we extracted the build-environment.Builds are running in dynamically created, strictly separated VMs per client apart from the cluster. Additionally to our secure builds, our extension enables Docker Multi-Stage Builds. These help to optimise Dockerfiles and make them both simpler and easier to read.

  • Managed Services

    There is a first platform software, which were offering on our Public Platform as a service. We’re building the software according to your wishes and are operating it a a managed service:

    • 3 Scale API Management (Beta): API Management solution by Red Hat.
