GorillaStack has a new Slack App

Joel Spira & Steven Noble | Fri May 01 2020

For the tech worker in 2020, corporate chat is where facts are filtered and decisions are made — fast. People and machines share insights in real time, and teams come together to work as one. Knowing this, we have long connected our GorillaStack platform to Slack, helping our customers to better…

Delete snapshots when deleting images

Elliott Spira | Tue Mar 24 2020

Just like the crumbs left behind when eating cookies, it is an unfortunate reality of life (with AWS at least) that many of your snapshots (so beautifully titled “Created by CreateImage...”) are in fact leftovers from an AMI that has since been deleted. This could always be addressed after running…

More filtering options for deleting images

Elliott Spira | Wed Mar 18 2020

It is really hard to know which AMIs can actually be deleted in your environment. Of course, you don’t want to delete anything that is in use, or could be in use based on your existing configuration. We’ve added some filtering to our Delete Images action such that you can now filter AMIs for…

These changes have reduced the number of things that a developer needs…

Introducing - Templates

Elliott Spira | Tue, 24 Dec 2019

Customers were telling us: sometimes, creating Rules can be a little involved. I really want to be browsing “use cases" and enabling different "outcomes". We couldn't agree more. We have built Templates exactly for this purpose. (They are the equivalent of CloudFormation for GorillaStack). We have…

Chris Armstrong | Wed Dec 11 2019

At GorillaStack, we’re keen users of AWS, and the time around re:Invent is great for the number of new product and feature announcements that are made. 2019 was no exception, although with the deluge of announcements before and during the conference, even we found it hard to keep up! Below, we’ve…
