DivvyCloud, a developer of innovative software to automate and manage today’s cloud infrastructure, released BotFactory this week. Built on-top of DivvyCloud’s extensible platform, BotFactory provides a framework and interface for creating special purpose cloud automation “Bots” that can autonomously ensure compliance across an organization’s cloud infrastructure. Bots are comprised of interchangeable components that can be customized to fit an organization’s specific cloud policy requirements.
In addition to a growing number of standard DivvyCloud Bots, customers and partners can leverage the DivvyCloud SDK (software development kit) to develop their own automation for specific use cases. Customers can surface these components in BotFactory to share across business units, or with the broader DivvyCloud technical community.
DivvyCloud also released an initial repository on GitHub for customers and developers to leverage and share cloud automation Bots. Existing Bots cover a range of security and cost management use cases, and include:
• Schedule Instances Bot – Auto schedule instance downtime to reduce costs
• Regional Audit Bot – Eliminate resources in unapproved cloud regions
• S3 Bucket Permissions Bot – ensure appropriate permissions on S3 buckets
• Network Audit Bot – identify and fix saturation levels of networks and subnets
“We are investing in our platform to accelerate the creation and adoption of cross-cloud policy automation to address growing security, cost and compliance risks faced by enterprises scaling their cloud footprint,” said Brian Johnson, DivvyCloud CEO. “With the BotFactory and our GitHub repository in place, our community can develop hundreds of Bots to address a broad range of cloud compliance, integration and automation use cases.”
