BoltOps roots are in software development. This gives a unique perspective on how we approach building infrastructure. We purposely try to make the architecture lightweight as possible. By leveraging the massive shoulders of AWS, there is less maintenance overhead with the infrastructure. Our software philosophy results in a long-term "light-touch" solution. This approach is covered in detail in this blog post: BoltOps Tooling and Software Design Philosophy. We believe that the software development background plus a deep understanding of AWS infrastructure makes for a more effective and dangerous combination.
We are solely focused on AWS and have many built tools that proves it. The tools come from actual use of AWS. To name a few:
The tools are specific to AWS and allows us fully leverage AWS features.
