Walmart's OneOps cloud management code comes to GitHub
Couchbase supports retailer's release of its NoSQL database into the wild
WalmartLabs has made a DevOps cloud management platform available on GitHub, allowing developers to write and launch apps more quickly.
OneOps will also make apps easier to maintain, the retailer said, and the platform allows developers to launch, manage and maintain products in public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
Couchbase's distributed NoSQL database forms part of Walmart's OneOps platform, which, the company said, offers enhanced performance, scalability and availability.
“Walmart is the perfect model of a company that is smartly adapting to the Digital Economy," Ravi Mayuram, senior vice president, products and engineering at Couchbase said.
"While its retail leadership was built on brick and mortar, Walmart has become a technology and e-commerce innovator, establishing itself as an influential Silicon Valley leader...OneOps is a great solution for managing cloud deployments and we strongly support the move to open source this exceptional technology.”
The OneOps management platform has had proven success for Walmart, especially at peak periods, where it's key the company is as productive as possible. One example of its success was demonstrated during Black Friday last year, when the company needed to spin up tens of thousands of virtual machines running applications to manage the traffic generated by online sales.
“My team is responsible for delivering best-in-class data management services to the Walmart e-commerce team. Like every enterprise IT team, we are looking for solutions that are easy to use, simple to manage and demonstrate reliable performance,” said Bob Lowell, director of engineering, data platform, Walmart.
“Managing Couchbase through OneOps makes it even easier for us to quickly respond to business needs with rapid innovation and delivery.”
