Declare Your Cloud

Let Fugue Automate the Rest

Control Your Cloud

Control & Collaboration

Fugue reins in the complexity of cloud operations at scale to bring control and order to IT.

  • Facilitate secure collaboration with role-based access controls to regulate the creation and modification of cloud resources so teams can collaborate securely.
  • Centralize the management of multiple, dynamic cloud environments that span many AWS accounts and deliver resources to the right teams fast.
  • Get a concise, real-time view of your entire cloud footprint and eliminate the guesswork that leads to wasteful spending, security vulnerabilities, and time-consuming audits.
Control your cloud with the Fugue cloud management platform

How Fugue Works

An Infrastructure-Level OS for the Cloud

Fugue consists of a Conductor, which acts as a “kernel” for automating your cloud infrastructure operations and enforcement, a Command Line Interface to initiate and control processes, and Compositions for declaring and validating cloud infrastructure and policies.

Fugue operates each cloud environment as a managed process, providing an accurate, real-time view of your entire cloud footprint. Eliminate the guesswork and orphaned infrastructure that can lead to wasteful spending, security vulnerabilities, and time-consuming audits. Fugue is your operational source of truth and trust for the cloud.

Hello World, Part 1: Quick Setup

Automate Your Cloud

The Fugue Conductor

The Fugue Conductor runs inside your designated AWS account and automates the full lifecycle of cloud infrastructure environments.

  • Bring structure and clarity to cross-team, multi-environment cloud operations with Fugue’s managed process model.
  • Continuously monitor and enforce your cloud infrastructure, ensuring you always know what’s running and how everything is configured.
  • Eliminate time-consuming maintenance burdens and reduce the deployment failures that result from drift and manual intervention.

Declare Your Cloud

Fugue Compositions

Use Fugue Compositions to declare your cloud infrastructure as code and policy as code. Getting started is as easy as using YAML, but Fugue delivers powerful features beyond what any configuration syntax or templating tool can provide.

  • Get fast feedback and validation and use Fugue’s dry run option to preview changes to your infrastructure and be sure that infrastructure compositions will run as desired and will remain in compliance with policy.
  • Leverage rich libraries of infrastructure compositions and policies to gain efficient control and consistency across deployments.
  • Collaborate with code commenting, sharable compositions and libraries, auto-generated documentation, and infrastructure change plans.
