Akuity is here to power up both your business and engineering teams. Increase safety and deploy apps at high velocity with GitOps best practices closely interwoven into Akuity Platform for Argo CD.
GitOps is a set of best practices applied to a workflow reconciling a declared system state or configuration according to data stored in a git repository. These practices leverage a source control system like Git as the “single source of truth” and extend this practice to applications, infrastructure, and operational procedures.
Existing processes for infrastructure configuration management can face challenges such as configuration drift, failed deployments, relying on a system's previous state for success, missing documentation, or unknown development history. Adopting a GitOps workflow can help alleviate these issues.
GitOps is a paradigm that can be applied to a workflow to help manage an application and cloud system infrastructure. It gives organizations several advantages such as better coordination, transparency, stability, and reliability of a system. Operating in a close loop ensures the current live state of a system matches against the desired target state, specified in the git repository.
