Unlock the Power of Your Helm Charts Accelerate orchestration and simplify governance and management for your Helm Charts.

Establish centralized control over your Helm Charts while empowering users to deploy the environments they need via secure self-service and CI/CD integration.

Simplify and Scale Your Helm Charts

Automate Orchestration

Eliminate manual provisioning processes for your application environments. Torque imports your existing Helm Charts and other IaC scripts and automatically orchestrates complete environments in minutes.

Self-Service & Auto-Deployment

Reuse and scale Helm Charts across all application environments. Create self-service access for developers and end users to deploy pre-configured environments via Torque’s secure portal and integrations with the CI/CD or ITSM tools your teams use.

Custom Usage & Security Policies

Apply guardrails across all application environments. Automate shutdown after a predetermined duration, prohibit specific cloud activity with customizable policies based on Open Policy Agent, and prevent unauthorized usage with secrets management tools and role-based access controls.

Drift Detection & Alerting

Keep all application environments up to date. Torque notifies your teams about unexpected changes to your environments, provides detail on the change to help them respond, and ensures that all updates apply to the environments your teams deploy.

Use Cases

Speed and Control for Your Kubernetes Environments

You don’t have to be an expert to scale Helm usage

The Challenge

Provisioning complex application environments that rely on Helm Charts and other infrastructure assets, such as Terraform or CloudFormation scripts, is often a manual and time-consuming process—especially when dealing with configuration sprawl across large volumes of Helm Charts.

These delays extend application release timelines and lead to shadow IT.

The Solution

Torque ingests your existing Helm Charts, IaC scripts, and Kubernetes manifests and automatically orchestrates repeatable blueprints for complete environments in minutes.

Support for your CI/CD pipelines automate the lifecycle of these environments within the tools your developers already use, while providing DevOps and other admins a central place to keep environments up to date.

The Challenge

Chart sprawl is inevitable as Helm usage grows across large teams, making it difficult to standardize and maintain consistency.

This can lead to misconfigurations that drive up unnecessary cloud costs and create security risks.

The Solution

With Torque, administrators can set role-based access controls that define who can use and edit blueprints containing Helm Charts, while customizable guardrails prohibit specific cloud services, instance types, or configurations, such as public AWS S3 buckets.

The Challenge

DevOps and IT teams often struggle to track how Helm Charts are used, creating blind spots when allocating costs and planning resources.

The Solution

Torque automatically tags the infrastructure elements defined in the Helm Charts and IaC assets your teams deploy, allowing your team to track how individual teams, projects, or applications contributed to costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Torque connects to your existing GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket repository, identifies all the files within them—including Helm, Terraform, CloudFormation, and native Kubernetes manifests—and imports the assets you select, then automatically orchestrates a ready-to-run YAML file for a complete environment based on that infrastructure.

Absolutely not. Torque blueprints embrace and extend existing Helm Charts. The Torque platform is designed to help our users seamlessly and safely access environments that contain their existing Helm Charts, infrastructure as code scripts, and other infrastructure assets. Torque is unique with its ability to automatically identify and map multiple configuration types (Terraform, Helm, CloudFormation, Kubernetes, and vCenter) into a single repeatable blueprint.

Furthermore, Torque ties Helm-configured infrastructure elements to business context – who owns it, operates it, its purpose, the application and/or business that it enables, and what the infrastructure costs to operate.

Think of Quali’s Torque as a unified control plane for all your infrastructure assets.

The Torque platform was designed to enhance your existing workflows. That means automating the entire lifecycle of environments directly where–and when–they’re needed. Torque will automatically deploy the right environment at the onset of a new stage of the CI/CD pipeline, then shut that environment down after that stage is complete. Torque currently supports deployment on infrastructure within Azure DevOps, CircleCI, GitHub Actions, Jenkins, TeamCity.

Yes. With Quali’s Torque, infrastructure teams can enforce security and compliance by configuring environment blueprints with secrets and cloud account credentials securely embedded (and invisible to the user) to conform to policies that mitigate business risk. Torque’s policy engine, powered by Open Policy Agent (OPA), can embed guidelines for user access, cost, usage, and governance into the infrastructure provisioning process.
