Container Stack v2 — an overview of Skycap, Maestro and Pricing

Introducing Skycap

Skycap is container native CI/CD pipeline for Dev, that allows you to build your code into a container image. It takes your code from the git repository and runs your Docker build in the workflow. It can produce more than one image and it stores it in the private Docker repository that comes with Skycap or your own Docker repository.

Introducing Maestro

Maestro is a full application deployment management platform. Maestro containers are managed and backed by Kubernetes. Additionally, Maestro takes care of firewall, security, ACL access control, deployment workflow management, load balancers, SSH access for your team, logs, native DB replication and storage components, backups, and more. You can think of Maestro as a dedicated DevOps person in your team.

Pricing

Each product (Skycap and Maestro) has 4 pricing plans: Community, Starter, Growth and Pro.

  • No additional fee for adding a team member as the Unlimited Team Members feature is available across all the pricing plans.
  • No extra charge for backup storage as it is already included in the plan based on the size of the storage.
  • Also, the cost per unit (core or build pipeline) is now lower.

Mix and Match

The split of the product and new pricing allows you to mix and match the container components that fits best in your infrastructure.

#1 Scenario — Skycap & Maestro

In this scenario, Cloud 66 looks after your entire application from code to production with Skycap and Maestro.

#2 Scenario — Skycap only

In this scenario, you can build your container images with Skycap. This is an ideal tool if you need to build a new image or containerize your existing application. Skycap is fully integrated with git and supports multi-stepped builds. It allows you to lockdown builds and deployments for your team or it can require a separate approval from team members.

#3 Scenario — Maestro only

You can always use Maestro independently without Skycap as Maestro allows you to bring your own image. Maestro can be a great choice to deploy your existing images.
