Cowbell is a cyber insurance company. All of their business interactions with clients are highly dependent on their availability hence any disruptions would be preventing the company from functioning. Cowbell's infrastructure is spread across multiple regions in the US and Europe, all hosted on a single cloud provider, AWS.

  • Acquiring directly through the AWS Marketplace

The Operational Burden of Managing Argo CD at Scale

They knew from the start that Argo CD was the way to go, but the company needed something to take care of the operational burden of maintaining it on a large scale.

What drove their interest in the Akuity Platform was the ease of deploying and managing Argo CD at scale as well as saving on management overhead and maintaining high availability and reliability.

“Acquiring software directly from the vendor through the AWS Marketplace was a great selling-point. Thanks to this we were able to almost instantly start using the Akuity Platform after making the decision to move from Argo CD Open Source. It saved us around 4 months!”
