Gitlab Pipeline Development // Creating Custom Imaging // Workspaces on AWS // Security Applications // Enabling Virtual Workspaces

The Challenge

Our client firm had recently inherited new developers through a company acquisition. Our client sought to quickly and efficiently onboard the new developers, but they had a new set of tooling requirements than the existing developers. Specifically, they need to do some container development.

The Solution

Synechron's solution was to first determine that the existing AWS workspaces provided would not suffice for the recent additions. We developed Gitlab pipelines using Terraform, Ansible, Python and some bash scripting to create a new custom image with the software required. This also included required cybersecurity tools/applications. Our solution was a rollout of Ubuntu Virtual Desktop workspaces on Amazon which come preloaded with the most common developer software. These were designed to provide a secure desktop environment for developers.

The Results

Reduced time to deliver developer workstation from days to minutes
Ability to apply updates to workspace image reduced by 5x
Elimination of software costs due to adoption of open source components

Our process

Synechron followed an agile process that prioritised specific journeys to release to market according to customer and business needs.
