Balance speed and control of complex app environments with blueprints

Secure self-service access for developers to deploy application environments on demand without sacrificing the security, visibility, or cost management the devops team needs.

Why Torque for DevOps Teams?


Manual processes for provisioning environments can slow down developers, whether they rely on a centralized team to deliver infrastructure or attempt to deploy it themselves. Torque is the first control plane for managing and scaling diverse, complex infrastructure. Admins build repeatable blueprints that define cloud, virtualized, and containerized infrastructure—along with custom policies and permissions—so developers can deploy pre-configured environments on demand while controlling costs and security.


DevOps teams often struggle to manage, debug, track, and control complex environments based on hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure across a mix of Infrastructure as Code tools, such as Terraform and Helm. Torque automatically discovers and imports existing IaC files into modular blueprints for application environments, so DevOps teams can maintain configurations and track who deploys infrastructure and where infrastructure is running.


If developers are left waiting around for infrastructure, they’ll find workarounds. Most developers rarely push new environments, leading to out-of-sync environments that are difficult to debug. Torque provides ready-to-run, DevOps-approved environments in seconds via an IDE or CLI, making it easy for developers and DevOps teams to stay in sync.


Unnecessary cloud costs are impossible to identify until you receive the cloud bill, and they can be difficult to track down if your cloud instances aren’t tagged consistently. Torque automatically tears down environments after a custom duration, calculates predicted cloud costs for all environments, and automatically tags cloud instances to make cost reporting simple and easy.

Yes! Quali offers out of box integration with the common CI/CD tools. Read more about it here

If you use IaC tools like Terraform, you know that automation is the easy part. The challenging piece is the operation around Terraform and making it scale beyond a small team. When you have dozens of DevOps users, you need additional capabilities, including: gaining visibility to available automation; standardizing modules; providing self-service access; creating guardrails that allow teams to work quickly while maintaining security and compliance. Quali takes care of all these aspects without slowing you down. You can easily build on top of your existing IaC assets and get built-in, scale capabilities – allowing your developers to focus on developing.

Automating resource setup is often much easier than controlling the costs associated with these resources. And no one likes surprising bills. Quali’s built-in mechanisms for cost control help you stay on top of your cloud consumption without breaking a sweat: from auto-decommissioning of environments to truly automated and consistent resource tagging to 100% visibility, tracking and reporting—Quali does it all.

Torque can natively provision VMs and containers on almost any target infrastructure, including AWS, Azure, Oracle Cloud and on-prem. Additionally, leveraging Torque’s support of TF and Helm, Torque environments may also include PaaS and serverless technology in addition to VMs and containers.
