Challenges

Optimize developer workflows and productivity

A convenience of using Google Cloud Platform’s managed Kubernetes service is that clusters and resources can be spun up whenever you need them. Qordoba takes advantage of these features and have several different clusters each with specific configurations. While creating on-demand clusters is fast, the process of updating and deploying new images to their clusters was time consuming.

Google Cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) in Google is flexible, but Qordoba couldn’t easily specify the correct level of access and configuration control for their engineering teams which meant that the team had limited insight into what was running inside of the clusters.

Meet SOC 2 compliance requirements

Qordoba needed an audit trail to show who did what when. They were in the process of meeting these requirements with a set of custom scripts before they learned how Weave Cloud could easily solve their problem.

“I just got back from 9 days of vacation. I did not get called a single time for a deployment or cluster management issue. I cannot remember the last time this has happened in my career.” - James Robinson, Engineering Manager, Qordoba
