itopia has launched itopia Spaces, a fully-managed, ready-to-code cloud environment for remote software developers. It is a cloud workspace launcher that lets developers launch cloud workspaces in a browser – preconfigured with all dependencies – while enterprises actively prevent code exfiltration with precise and flexible security restrictions.
Neustar and 8base are among the first clients of the new service, and they are distributing it across hundreds of software developers.
“We have software developers around the globe. Improving their productivity while protecting the security of our code base in today’s hybrid work environment is crucial to us. itopia helps us ship products faster and more securely, without disrupting our existing developer workflows.” Albert Santalo, Founder and CEO, 8base
itopia Spaces give a modern software development environment that is more in line with how developers prefer to work. According to a recent Harness poll, 74% of developers intend to continue working remotely even after the pandemic. Instead of spending days setting up and maintaining various settings and battling hardware compatibility, itopia allows developers to select their preferred IDE and begin writing code in the cloud in seconds.
Selkies, an open-source, cloud-native streaming platform developed in collaboration with Google Cloud, is at the heart of the solution. Enterprises and worldwide system integrators may now use itopia’s platform as a fully managed service to make secure coding a fun experience.
“The rise of today’s hybrid work environment has many organizations reevaluating the approach to remote developer work. We’re pleased to have itopia Spaces available on Google Cloud Marketplace to help customers and their developer teams securely create and launch new products – regardless of where they may be working from.” Manvinder Singh, Director, Partnerships, Google Cloud
Itopia has also announced its involvement in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), a non-profit organisation affiliated with the Linux Foundation. Itopia’s expanding ties to the cloud computing community, as well as the Kubernetes and open-source ecosystems, is reflected in this announcement, which serves as a strong validation of itopia’s aim to simplify hybrid work for software teams.
“As software organizations have increasingly distributed workforces, it is necessary to onboard remote developers quickly and ensure they have everything they need to be productive from any location. We are thrilled that itopia has joined CNCF to bring its expertise in distributed workforce technology to the cloud native ecosystem and look forward to driving innovation together.”
Priyanka Sharma, Executive Director, CNCF
