Almost as soon as DevOps burst onto the scene, enterprise leaders recognized the need for orchestration. When it came to the development process, there were a lot of tools necessary to transform DevOps from an idea into reality. With speed being of paramount concern, it was clear that organizations needed something that would ensure that everything hung together and worked properly. There was only one problem with this vision of orchestration-bliss. It pretty much left out the Ops side of DevOps.
Morpheus came to this realization in a bit of a round-about manner. The company’s product was initially developed as an internal toolset to help a venture capital firm employ specialist teams into their portfolio companies and rapidly deploy and manage software — regardless of the environment or the development tools they were using. After several years of internal use, the company’s founders realized that it could help enterprises deal with their increasingly complex and fragmented world — especially as the need for velocity was beginning to cause the fragile Dev-Ops relationships to break down.
The result is a unified, multi-cloud orchestration platform that enables organizations to develop, and natively deploy and manage applications throughout the development lifecycle, through operations and in both private and public cloud environments — at scale. The platform has built-in monitoring, logging, and backup, and serves as a container-as-a-service platform with native docker functionality, among other native capabilities. At the same time, however, it can connect and orchestrate across nearly any development, deployment or management tool an enterprise may already have in place.
