Govern the Software Supply Chain and deliver secure, high-quality cloud-native applications at scale.

Critical for Managing Your Cloud-Native Supply Chain

In a cloud-native environment, where microservices are deployed at scale, Developers, DevOps, and Security teams can’t easily confirm that the software they deliver to end users is safe for consumption. A microservice environment obfuscates application-level security reporting, SBOMS, CVES, impact analysis, inventory, or even knowing whom to call when an end-user reports an issue. DeployHub microservice catalog is a centralized ‘evidence store’ of supply chain data that clarifies these complexities, making what’s hard about cloud-native computing easy.

DeployHub Advantages

Unify your DevOps, Security, and Supply Chain Intelligence into one component and microservice catalog tool that…

Provides the clarity needed to govern microservices at scale. Exposes version drift and reduces redundant services. 

Collects each component or microservice’s software bill of material into a unified ‘evidence’ store, exposing how open-source packages are used across all applications and deployed environments. 

Aggregates component and microservice SBOMs up to the ‘logical’ application giving your teams an easy way to view their application’s SBOM even in a decoupled, cloud-native architecture. 

Features of Our Microservice Catalog Tool

DeployHub is a component and microservice catalog tool that provides governance around the software supply chain. It centralizes your supply chain, security, and DevOps data into a unified dashboard connected to your DevOps pipeline. Its unique microservice catalog tool features include:

A Unified Evidence Store of  Your DevOps, Security, and Supply Chain Intelligence

Supply Chain Catalog

DeployHub automates the collection of your microservice’s software composition analysis data (SCA), an essential tool in the DevSecOps toolbox for cloud-native architectures. Your DevOps pipeline produces software composition intelligence, such as SBOMs, but the reports and logs lay dormant under the pipeline hood or siloed across multiple tools. DeployHub’s component and microservices catalog tool collects this critical supply chain and DevOps intelligence so it can be consumed and acted upon in one place. The result, DeployHub makes it easy to answer the question, ‘who is using Log4J, and where is it running?”

Centralize Componet and Microservice SBOM / CVE Data

Moving to a decoupled architecture makes it difficult to view, track, and manage all SBOM data in a single location. Each service has its own SBOM and CVE information. DeployHub aggregates all lower-level dependency SBOMs to the ‘logical’ application providing you a single point of view to see your software supply chain and CVEs.  DeployHub provides this level of ‘logical’ application visibility to mitigate the risk of consuming open-source software.

Reduce Supply Chain Security Risks with Open Source Package Analysis

DeployHub’s ‘evidence store’ tracks all open-source packages that your components, microservices, applications, and environment depend upon.  A simple search option provides a consolidated report showing open-source package usage across your entire architecture. This makes it simple to answer the question, “who uses Log4J, and where is it running?”

microservice versioning

Component and Microservice Versioning

The one thing constant about microservices is that they change. DeployHub tracks the changes in your microservices including the software composition metadata, ownership, inventory, and how those changes impact other consuming ‘logical’ applications. With DeployHub’s versioning engine you can easily produce difference reports between any two components, microservices, ‘logical’ applications, or environments.

microservice application dependencies

Tracking the Logical Application

Microservice Applications are a logical collection of microservices. DeployHub creates a new version of your microservice application when a microservice is updated. It also shows the difference between any two versions of your microservice application.

FAQs

How do microservice catalogs work? Here are some answers to common questions about microservice catalogs.

What is a Microservice Catalog?

A microservice catalog simplifies cloud-native architecture by displaying all services in one place. A microservice catalog simplifies a cloud-native implementation by providing a central location to find and share thousands of services consistently across all clusters and teams. A microservice catalog facilitates collaboration across organizational siloes, saves money by encouraging reuse, and tames the difficulty common to a shared service architecture.

What are the Unique Attributes of Microservices?

Every microservice is different, and each has its own unique attributes. The attributes include ownership details, consuming applications, transitive microservice dependencies, versions, and inventory across all clusters. The attributes of a microservice change over time, impacting consuming applications and other dependent services.

Microservice catalogs track and manage the attributes, showing the changes over time, and minimizing the time for root cause analysis. They also provide a ‘predictive’ platform for taming microservices even before deployment.

What Features Do Microservice Catalogs Have?

Here is a list of standard features that microservice catalog tools typically contain:

  • Microservice Organization
  • Microservice Ownership
  • Service to Service Dependencies
  • Supply Chain Versioning
  • Logical Application Supply Chain with SBOM
  • Vulnerability and License Reporting
  • Microservice Inventory by Cluster
  • Deployment Metadata

Who Uses a Microservice Catalog?

The users of a microservice catalog include producers, consumers, DevOps teams, SREs, production support, and supply chain security. The core purpose of a microservice catalog is to provide everyone, from the API developers to the production support teams, with essential information needed to succeed in a shared services architecture.

How do Microservice Catalogs Work for Developers?

Governance catalogs help developers start creating microservices. They focus on registration of the service to a specific ‘Domain’ and track the developers’ tools used to develop and test services.

How Do Microservice Catalogs Work for Operations?

Governance catalogs focus on tracking what is running in production and maintaining service level objectives (SLOs). Their primary goal is to help support teams and SREs maintain their incident response times through ownership information and the blast radius of a problem service.

How do Microservice Catalogs work for DevOps?

Governance catalogs track the software supply chain with versions. DevOps Teams who manage pipelines use the catalog to determine where a service version runs to minimize drift across clusters. Microservice catalogs can also track who consumes the service as a dependency and manage the blast radius of a high-risk service.

Integrations

Helm Custom Deployment Actions

Helm can be called to replace the DeployHub default processing engine for performing container deployments. When DeployHub executes the release process, it will call the Helm Chart you have defined as your Custom Action at the Component level. Our microservice catalog includes the version of the Helm chart as part of its overall configuration data. In addition, DeployHub’s microservice catalog can track Key Value pairs and generate override files for each environment to which you are deploying.

Integrating with Your CI/CD Pipeline

In order to continuously gather pipeline intelligence, DeployHub must become part of your pipeline. DeployHub integrates into your CI/CD process using the Ortelius Open-Source Command Line (CLI). The Ortelius CLI gathers supply chain data based on a single pipeline workflow at the build and deploy steps. The build step gathers Swagger, SBOM, Readme, licenses, Git data, Docker image, and other build output. The deploy step records when a release occurs, what was sent and where the objects were sent to.

The Ortelius Open Source Community maintains the Ortelius CLI under the governance of the Linux Foundation’s Continuous Delivery Foundation.

Configuration Management for Testing

DeployHub integrates with CircleCI to support microservices continuous configuration management, and continuous deployments built into your CircleCI pipeline. In particular, DeployHub integrates with CircleCI to enrich the CI/CD pipeline around microservices, tracking which applications need to be retested due to a common microservice update.

Critical to the process is the ability to perform versioning and tracking microservices across clusters and teams and map them to ‘logical’ Applications. DeployHub’s CircleCI Orb includes the ability to perform automated version and dependency management of microservices tracking application and microservice relationships, their versions, and their deployment metadata.

Tracking Change Request and Issues

DeployHub integrates with Jira, Bugzilla, and GitHub issues to track your change request at three levels: Component (microservice), Application, and Release (collection of Applications). You define Jira, Bugzilla, or GitHub through an object called a ‘data source.’ Once defined, you can pull change request from your issue system and assign them at any level for tracking. When change requests are managed this way, you have a continuous feedback loop showing when the issue was opened and when the customer received the fix.
