What is Brainboard?#

Brainboard is a visual cloud management solution that allows cloud & network architects, DevOps engineers and SREs to centralize the management of the cloud infrastructure by visually building and managing it with little to no code and save a huge amount of time and money by:

  • Designing in real time and collaboratively cloud architectures,
  • Automatically generating the Terraform code from the blueprint,
  • Integrating with the existing repos like Gitlab and Github,
  • Deploying the infrastructure with one click,
  • And also allowing managers and engineers to get back the control of the cloud infrastructure costs.

The project has been launched by the ex CTO of Scaleway (cloud provider) along with talented, recognized and highly experienced engineers that spent more than 10 years designing, building and managing cloud infrastructures.

Their main goal: share the knowledge and experience they have to help everyone on the cloud journey through a tool that reflects their extensive experience.

Three pillars#

Empower collaboration#

We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words, that's why we want you to work on the upper layer of the abstraction: you do the engineering and the rest is managed by the machine: like code generation, error checking and automatic deployment.

All you have to do is engineering, depicting your thoughts and using your time and energy to innovate collaboratively.

Enforce security#

Now more than ever security should be taken into account from the beginning of any project and not applied as a patch or only when emergencies arise. This is what Brainboard enables you to do: security by design that reflects and respects your priorities, naming conventions and best practices.

Accelerate automation#

Why should you spend time and money on what could be done quickly and efficiently?

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is the new normal and we can even say it's a must-have when you care about your infrastructure.

Brainboard takes the IaC into the next level as it accelerates and eases both its adoption and its integration with your existing pipelines.

Why Brainboard#

  • Zero-touch strategy: humans use their skills to think and design, and the machines to execute, monitor and inform us.
  • Business first: you control every aspect of the cloud infrastructure hosting your business.

    For eg you want some of your infrastructure to be compliant with European rules, you just migrate it to a european region with ONLY one click.

  • Time saving: your time to market is our high priority.

    We don't do things that we know we can do faster.

  • Multi-cloud by design: Brainboard is build from the ground up with the multi-cloud in mind. Please refer to the FAQ for our definition of the multi-cloud.
  • Best practices: different levels of controls based on the best practices of the production-ready environmets are available to guide engineers design robust infrastructures.
  • Cost optimization: you can visualize the price, and optimize the costs in two main areas:
    1. Choose best price-configuration ratio of your resoures among the supported cloud providers. Which means you split your resources across multiple cloud providers.
    2. Optimize the costs within the same cloud provider by reviewing the architecture and benchmarking different scenarios.
  • Market place: design and distribute, you create what your ideal cloud infrastructure looks like and share it either with your team, organization of publically. By doing so you give your own members the possibility to clone your work in 2s and get started.

    We help you give your team(s) autonomy and time.

  • Terraform: Brainboard relies mainly on Terraform which is widely used and proved in the cloud landscape.

    The code generated and deployed is a Terraform code

  • Gift: at any time you want to get your code and continue working on your own we offer you the whole source code of your infrastructure.

    Helping each other is our value and DNA.
