Dear XebiaLabs community,
We are pleased to announce the release of XL Deploy 5.5.0. This major version of XL Deploy allows you to set up fully automated, on-demand access to your public, private, or hybrid cloud-based environments. You can now provision and destroy virtual environments as part of your XL Deploy deployment flow, making it easy to spin up environments when you need them for development, testing, pre-production, and production, and then tear them down when you are done.
This feature allows you to create a repeatable provisioning process and enjoy one way of working, no matter what your environment. It also provides central governance for provisioning and deployments. Finally, the new XL Deploy saves substantial time setting up and getting access to environments, and saves costs because environments only stay around as long as you need them.
In this release:
- Provisioning and deprovisioning cloud-based environments is supported in both the XL Deploy GUI and CLI
- XL Deploy allows you to create reusable infrastructure templates that define what your provisioned environments will look like
- You can immediately deploy your applications to provisioned environments, as well as update and undeploy them
- Out-of-the-box support for Amazon EC2 and Puppet is included with XL Deploy 5.5.0
You can download the release at the XebiaLabs Software Distribution site.
