InfoSiftr Announces the Launch of Arm Image Build Service (AIB)


Las Vegas, NV – InfoSiftr is excited to announce the launch of Arm Image Build Service (AIB), a solution that enables organizations to build container images, such as Docker, that will run on Arm based systems that can be integrated in with their current CI/CD software development pipeline. The beta launch date for AIB is 12/11/18 at the KubeCon / CloudNativeCon, North America 2018 Show.

InfoSiftr believes AIB will solve a growing need in the marketplace, to enable organizations to use their current software development pipeline, that is outfitted to build x86-based container images now, to use the same pipeline to build Arm based images in the same environment, currently being used. This solution will enable organizations to be truly multi architecture and is a far better solution than having to make a large procurement of a dedicated server or use a much smaller solution, such as a hobbyist platform to build Arm images. Additionally, future plans will allow this platform to be used to compile and build applications that are to run on an Arm system without software containers.

Justin Steele, President of InfoSiftr said, “Currently when someone wants to develop containerized applications for Arm, they had to deploy a complete build-system first, just to experiment with an Arm system. With our new offering, they can now use our services to provide the needed build solutions into their current CI/CD pipelines at a very minimal expense, to enable development on these systems, just like they have used for years to develop on x86 systems. Thus, making these organization truly multi architecture in their deployments.”

Also, said, “If you believe that energy prices will go up and you will need a more efficient compute platform for some workloads, then Arm must be part of your deployment solution going forward. As a consultant and integration provider, we, (InfoSiftr) are uniquely equipped to help those organizations that want to move to a multi architecture system. We have the most experience of anyone in this interesting intersection between Arm processors and software containers.”

The beta is currently offered on InfoSiftr’s own system and will also be a hybrid offering as well, use common public APIs. InfoSiftr plans to offer an on premise solution required by organizations requiring that level of security.

Partners on developing this solution have been, Arm Ltd, Packet, and Qualcomm.

InfoSiftr provides Docker Authorized Training, Integration, and Consulting services. A global authority in container images, their team includes a Docker core maintainer as well as contributors who support the container runtime spec – runC, containerd, and Docker CE. InfoSiftr is a member of the OCI and the CNCF and actively supports and contributes to Kubernetes contributor experience, release and PM teams.

As stated above, InfoSiftr offers training, consultancy and integration services for any organization looking to add containers and Arm processors to their current solutions.

InfoSiftr has a been a long-time support of containers on Arm and multi architecture in general. InfoSiftr helped with the development on getting containers running on IBM’s System Z and POWER architectures. InfoSiftr also has worked with Arm Ltd on developing the needed support system to enable development on Arm base systems using modern CI/CD pipelines and DevOps principles. InfoSiftr is currently helping on containerizing parts of the ONAP Project and getting the project to run on Arm and be multi architecture as well.
