Not only do Eight’s devices track user’s sleep, they also include features such as bed warming, smart alarms, and have the ability to integrate with smart homes. They have a plethora of micro-services and plenty of APIs. Thousands of smart devices are constantly updating data to their backend, so when it came to looking for a CI/CD tool, they need one that was fast and reliable.
“Everything is Docker oriented here”, says Ron Pantofaro, Engineering Manager. Eight uses Docker for it’s rapid deployment, structured and source controlled layers, and it’s ease of maintaining deployments. They use ECS for deployment, and needed a product that would help them keep things moving along quickly and efficiently.
