Learn Stacksmith’s benefits for developers, IT ops, IT security, and DevOps teams, and how Bitnami Stacksmith is the simplest way to package applications and assets for today's cloud and container platforms, and automate the ongoing maintenance of these applications so they remain up-to-date and secure.
What is Stacksmith?
Bitnami Stacksmith is a single, standardized packaging and maintenance tool that generates deploy-ready, cloud-native assets in multiple formats for multiple cloud vendor platforms. Stacksmith provides two primary functions:
Stacksmith’s automated packaging takes your assets – application code, configuration policies, and scripts - incorporates the platform dependencies, maps the cloud platform service integrations you specify (ie. Database), optimizes the results for your chosen platform(s), and delivers everything you will need to successfully deploy.
Stacksmith also simplifies the ongoing maintenance of your assets by continuously monitoring private repositories (for code, script or config policy updates) and trusted sites (for system package updates and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs)), and providing manual (click ‘update’) and automated (supports continuous updating) methods for you to re-package your applications, ensuring they stay up-to-date and secure.
