How It Works
Painless Cloud frees you from a few tedious, time-consuming, but fundamentally important things.
Best practices, automation, and feedback
- Best practices
- You need to identify current best practices in front-end development, back-end development, releasing, monitoring and updating the software and services you write and maintain.
- You should set up local environments for developers, test and staging environments, automatic deployment and everything in-between; including notifications to the team via Slack, by email or a dashboard.
- Who can tell you how good your software really is? The lower the quality the higher the risk of failure, during deployment and production. How do you fix technical debt?
Continuous delivery made easy
Here is what Painless Cloud does:
- Bootstrap your CI/CD setup with a simple, yet sophisticated, best practice software development project layout. — open source cookiecutter
- Connect you to the services you use, just with a few clicks. Have you add new services you need, just with a few clicks. — list of supported services
- Visualize KPIs of your code base and suggest improvements. Motivate you to walk the path of continuous improvement, create a team buzz! — list of features
- Manage maintenance tasks, monitoring, upgrades, infrastructure changes all from a single dashboard. Permissions and transparency for everyone on the team. — list of features
Open source — to ensure your freedom
You should be wary of vendor lock-in. We are that too. That's why we publicly host the heart of our service on GitHub as free/libre – free as in beer and in speech – open source software.

The problem you need to solve in 2018
Software development is inherently more complex and demanding today than it was a decade ago. Continuous delivery, agile practices, containerization, and a vast amount of tools and online services address this to help us manage the increased architectural complexity and the need for faster and less error-prone delivery. – Can you keep up with the speed of this progress?
The theory of continuous delivery says that we should create resilient systems that can recover from failures easily. It prescribes that we should have transient environments that allow us to move from one infrastructure to another. – Can you recover from a serious outage of, say, Amazon AWS/S3?
When Amazon breaks down, can you move your service to Google Compute Engine or Azure within hours, if the outage lasts too long?
