Autodesk sails into new markets in 4 weeks with deployment built on Armory and AWS Executive Summary In order to deliver software to their customers faster, Autodesk, a global leader in design and make technology, needed to standardize on cloud-native tools and adopt a multi-cloud continuous delivery platform. In 2019, Autodesk partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Armory to manage deployments reliably and safely. Looking for enterprise-grade automation and support to speed delivery into new regions Moving to continuous delivery across multiple regions is a huge step. Plus, Autodesk has to do it quickly to meet current and new customer needs. "We use many of the products that AWS has to offer but unifying deployment tooling under Autodesk's CloudOS with Spinnaker technology was critical for our regional scalability," said Shrirang Moghe, senior software architect at Autodesk. Finding a platform that automates building, packaging, testing, and deploying software to select cloud regions was also important. Autodesk liked what Spinnaker offers, but to benefit from enterprise- grade scalability and support, Autodesk needed something more. Constructing continuous software delivery So, the search was on for a way to supercharge Spinnaker. After considering the options, Autodesk chose Armory Cloud Enterprise running on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) and deploying to Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Other critical AWS services that are being used in the project are AWS Fargate and AWS Lambda. Amazon Professional Services was also brought in to help with integration and solution design. In nearly 6 months, Autodesk, Armory, and AWS implemented what Moghe described as "best of the breed in terms of CI/CD." Working with AWS has enabled Autodesk to deploy one service in production already with many more to come this year. About Autodesk From the greenest buildings to the cleanest cars, the smartest factories to the biggest stories, amazing things are created every day with Autodesk. "The partnership has been flawless. The AWS and Armory program managers were always on top of things." - Shrirang Moghe, Sr. TPM/Sr. Software Architect at Autodesk
