Kuali builds SaaS for higher education focused on five categories: Financials, Research, Curriculum and Catalog Management, Build (no-code applications), and Ready (business continuity). Each product is hosted in a separate AWS environment and managed by a self-steering product team. The SRE team at Kuali uses SaltStack—integrated with GitHub and Docker—to manage multiple AWS accounts with SaltStack automation. SaltStack provides a best-practice IaC management system across AWS that delivers consistency and governance while simultaneously empowering each product team to achieve diverse objectives.
According to Ben Gridley, Lead Site Reliability Engineer at Kuali, “SaltStack helps us normalize control of AWS across teams. Through automated infrastructure security and management, our developers can focus on bringing revenue-generating products to market, instead of infrastructure maintenance.”
