At Cycle, we understand the paramount importance of security and the challenges that come with maintaining it. That's why we're proud to share how our proactive approach has not only addressed the recent “Leaky Vessels” container exploit, but has done so in a manner entirely transparent to our customers, and in under 4 hours of the vulnerability being made public.

With such an eventful year of releases and development, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on all thats been accomplished this trip around the sun. Before we do that, a quick message to the users who've made this year so special. Thank you so much for joining us on this amazing journey. It is your trust and unwavering support which has helped us grow this vision into a reality.

Over the last few months, you may have noticed that many of our changelog releases mentioned the release of, and improvements to, Cycle’s native load balancer. While this load balancer still officially remains in beta status, we wanted to begin diving into the details around it a bit more thoroughly: What is it? Why did we build it? How can you use it?

In part 1 of this 2 part blog we looked at some common engineering tradeoffs. But how might someone navigate these tradeoffs and build a model that works for their product? Here are some core concepts that can help along the way.

Tradeoff: a balance achieved between two desirable but incompatible features; a compromise. Schooling often promotes the idea that there is a right and wrong answer to questions… It does little to prepare us for how many times that there are multiple right answers and no definitive best path forward. In a time where we have unlimited information at our fingertips, you can throw a stone and hit a thousand people with an opinion.

Containers are nearly ubiquitous in software these days. Outside of abstractions like fully managed services (RDS, Dynamo, Cloud SQL), everything engineering teams are responsible for, mostly, land in containers. For many, deciding what platform to run those containers on is a burning question. Choosing the wrong container management solution can be a real headache.

The software engineering world has become a place where compute, storage, and availability have become the cornerstones of scale. As an industry and as individuals, we should stop to take a closer look at scaling the most important of all resources… our people. In this post I’ve modeled a team with 6 engineers, 2 Sr, 3 Mid, and 1 Jr. This team is getting 450 “units” of work done ( where a unit is just some measure of throughput ) per interval (2 months).

It's no secret that Kubernetes is complex, but did you know more people than ever are looking for an opinionated alternative to Kubernetes? Alexander Mattoni, Co-Founder and Head of Engineering at, dives into some of the reasons driving this shift, and why you may want to consider an alternative for your container orchestrator.

In this video, Jake Warner (CEO / Founder) does a quick dive into one of our latest features: Rainbow Deployments. These deployments enable teams to maintain multiple independent versions of their applications within one single environment. Additionally, deployments make it easy to take new versions of your applications live with zero downtime. Cycle is a container orchestration and infrastructure management platform built to provide a true alternative to Kubernetes.

The developer friendly container platform. Choose your infrastructure provider, import your containers, and let Cycle handle the rest.

Containers have changed the way developers build, deploy, and scale software. Unfortunately, the adoption of containers has also lead to an ever-growing stack of technical debt and responsibilities for teams to manage.

Interested in utilizing containers, on your own infrastructure, without having to deal with the OS, networks, or a container orchestration layer? Welcome to Cycle.

Container Orchestration Meets SaaS:

  • Always Up-to-Date: Stop dealing with OS patches and orchestration layer updates; Cycle automatically delivers platform updates to all servers.
  • 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.
  • Develop Faster: Cycle was built for both experienced developers and new users alike. Manage containers, servers, DNS, and more, all on one platform to save time and resources.
  • Built for Teams: From quickly onboarding new members to easily managing user access, Cycle’s portal has everything needed for a team to grow.
  • Secure by Default: All services and configurations are secure from the start, reducing the likelihood of mistakes that could lead to a security exploit.

The Developer-Friendly Container Platform.
