Gruntwork

Get up and running on AWS with DevOps best practices and world-class infrastructure in about 2 weeks. You focus on your product. We'll take care of the grunt work.

What we do

At Gruntwork, we've taken the thousands of hours we spent building infrastructure on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and condensed all that experience and code into pre-assembled Infrastructure Packages. An Infrastructure Package is a reusable, battle-tested, documented, configurable, best-practices definition of a piece of infrastructure.

Infrastructure Packages

Here are the Infrastructure Packages we have available (click on a package to see its description and documentation):

Network Topology

Monitoring and Alerting

Docker Cluster

AMI Cluster

Security

Continuous Delivery

Relational Database

Distributed Cache

Stateful Server

Don't see a Package that does what you need? We offer general DevOps consulting on an hourly basis. We also offer training in AWS, Terraform, Docker, Packer, and other DevOps technologies and practices.

The Gruntwork story

Gruntwork originally started out as two companies, Atomic Squirrel, founded by Jim, and Phoenix DevOps, founded by Josh. Jim and Josh met in 2015, realized they were working towards the same vision, and began working together. In 2016, after working with a number of clients and building up a library of reusable scripts, templates, and best practices, they merged the two companies together into Gruntwork.
