Package your Applications for the Cloud

Cloud platform know-how is built into the tooling, templates, and automation that Stacksmith uses to package and optimize your applications. Stacksmith delivers everything you will need to successfully deploy to whichever platform you choose.

Automate Ongoing Maintenance

Once your application is running, how will you keep it up-to-date and secure? Stacksmith continuously monitors trusted sites for new releases and security updates for your application's components, provides alerts when available, and offers a simple re-packaging process.

How does Stacksmith work?

You provide your application code and scripts, select a few parameters, and hit create. Stacksmith pulls together the dependencies, documents and packages them, and delivers everything you need to deploy your application to your chosen cloud platform - the VM or container image and the deployment template. Deploy and utilize native cloud services that are now available to you!

Stacksmith then delivers ongoing value by continuously monitoring the dependencies, alerting you when updates become available, and providing a simple way to re-package the application.

Templates encode best practices so you don't need to be an expert, and support for multiple platforms and formats means you can explore new technologies at your own pace and don't have to worry about vendor lock-in.

Stacksmith can be used to package and maintain new or existing applications, and can be used on its own or integrated with the development tools and processes you already use.
