The United States Air Force (USAF) needed to streamline their Kubernetes deployment and maintenance process. They aimed to reduce manual labor and minimize script errors through a standardized and automated workflow solution. The USAF faced extensive manual work in deploying and maintaining Platform One’s Kubernetes solution. This involved building, modifying, and reusing scripts from various sources in multiple languages, including Python, PowerShell, Bash, JSON, and YAML. Consequently, this approach led to inconsistency and potential errors. Additionally, disparate deployment processes between edge and core systems added complexity and required significant manual intervention. Engineers had to work with scripts containing static values that needed manual updates for different devices and systems. As a result, they faced a heavy burden of manual script manipulation and non-standardized workflows.

Our Answer

Arganteal’s Adaptive Deployment Tool (ADepT) provided a unified and automated solution to streamline the client’s Kubernetes deployment. With standardized automated workflows, the platform reduced manual tasks and ensured consistent processes across the organization, minimizing errors. Furthermore, ADepT’s secure script management centralizes scripts from various sources, allowing for reliable storage and reuse. Additionally, its variable substitution library allowed scripts to be reused across different systems without manual edits. This accelerated deployment and lowered complexity. In summary, this combination helped the client deploy Kubernetes faster, with fewer errors and reduced manual effort.

Business Outcomes

  • Reduced Deployment Costs: By standardizing workflows and reducing manual tasks, the client cut deployment resource requirements by up to 90%, leading to significant cost savings.
  • Accelerated Deployment: Automated workflows shortened deployment times, enabling the client to deploy more quickly and efficiently.
  • Reduced Error Rates: Standardized processes minimized the risk of errors associated with manual script handling and variation among engineers.
  • Improved Intellectual Property Capture: The client now securely captures and stores script IP, ensuring the longevity and continuity of their deployment practices.

The United States Air Force struggled with inefficient, error-prone manual processes for deploying and maintaining their Kubernetes solution, necessitating a standardized and automated workflow to streamline operations and ensure consistency across systems.
