Life at a startup often feels like a 100-meter sprint, head down, and focused until you cross the finish line. Only then do you really know what you have achieved. While a startup's work is never finished, every year we take a pause to reflect on what we have achieved over the past twelve months. And boy, was 2022 a good one!

If you're involved in deploying and managing applications and servers, you know that it is a complex and resource-intensive process. Container orchestration platforms help automate the deployment, scaling, and management of your applications, but the challenges don’t stop there. Everything from the way applications communicate, down to the underlying infrastructure they run on, exposes vulnerabilities, complexities, and builds up technical debt.

Before I dive into the launch of Cycle’s latest feature (and it’s a big one!) I want to share some context about how we got here. Let’s rewind back to 2015: containers, at least in their modern form, had just begun to take the developer ecosystem by storm. At the same time, we at Cycle were watching everything unfold: from Docker’s meteoric rise to the first few releases of tools like Kubernetes, Rancher, and so on.

Detroit, known by its nickname “Motor City'', is a bustling and beautiful city filled with dazzling architecture, food, history, and of course, people.This year, it was home to KubeCon 2022. The city is close to home for Jake and I, 45 minutes from where we started Cycle; it was wonderful seeing how the city has grown the last few years. The art deco style buildings loomed overhead, and the smell of freshly cooked food wafted through the downtown area just outside the venue.

Github’s, “Github Actions” CI/CD tooling is becoming an increasingly popular option for developers. I've personally worked with several Cycle users who are adopting Github Actions as part of their deployment solution and we've found that when pairing GH actions with Cycle it makes for a simple, yet powerful combination. Today we’ll stroll through a basic example of using Github Actions alongside the Cycle platform.

  • Automate Everything: Deployment pipelines, automatic TLS / SSL certificates, and more. Cycle is there when you need it -- and out of the way when you don’t.
  • Bring Your Own Infrastructure: Effortlessly deploy infrastructure from any of our supported providers. Own your data and your applications while we handle the rest.
