What Codefresh does
Codefresh was founded with container orchestration in mind, making it the first CI/CD platform to see the value of containers and Kubernetes. Since then, Kubernetes has become the de facto environment to run cloud-native applications.
DevOpsDevOps is a set of practices that combines software development and IT operations. It aims to shorten the systems development life cycle and provide continuous delivery with high software quality.
Empowering teamsCodefresh’s platform works to empower teams of all sizes to build and release pipelines faster at scale.
Continuous integration/deliveryCodefresh’s continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform works with all critical DevOps tools to provide a full deployment solution for both containers and traditional applications.
Leader in CI/CD and GitOpsCodefresh is a recognised leader and outperformer in CI/CD and GitOps. It has developed the first GitOps platform for cloud-native apps, built on the fast-growing Argo project, which makes modern software delivery possible at enterprise scale.
Why we invested
When Codefresh was founded, two important shifts were occurring in the market:
- Companies were transitioning to using cloud-native systems, which could support significantly more software applications at a fraction of the cost; and
- Software was becoming mission critical to organisations’ operations and competitive advantage, driving the need for increasingly frequent updates to business-critical applications.
Today, the average enterprise has approximately 500 custom applications and will develop and deploy approximately 40 new applications in a year. This poses an unprecedented challenge for developer teams.
Development teams have moved away from monolith systems built in-house and into microservices where updates and maintenance of applications happen continuously instead of having full blown and disruptive release periods.
Codefresh is designed to offer efficient performance for the build and release of software and applications. The company’s platform assists businesses of all sizes to automate their workflow and streamline the lifecycle of their digital products.
"Kubernetes can be complex to deploy, and this poses a high barrier to entry for developer teams ... Codefresh simplifies and accelerates this."
