AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Orca (orcaconfig.com), a leading innovator in software configuration management, drift detection, and release automation, today announced it has launched the industry’s first configuration drift detection product that monitors and analyzes all critical layers of the software solution “stack”. Orca Drift Detector automatically detects IT infrastructure configurations that have drifted from a baseline or are out of compliance with defined standards or policies to ensure application health, security, and compliance.

Existing configuration management and drift detection products only focus on operating system configurations and are blind to configuration issues that exist at the database, middleware, or application layer. Orca Drift Detector’s full stack approach is application-centric because it provides visibility into all IT infrastructure software components that are critical for effective application service delivery: application, middleware, database, and operating system.

“Drift detection has always been one of the most popular features of Orcastrator, our full spectrum configuration management and release automation product,” said Timothy Wall, CEO of Orca. “So popular, in fact, that we decided to launch a new product that focuses solely on drift detection. With Drift Detector, users can quickly solve their most painful configuration challenge, unauthorized configuration drift, then eventually tackle their broader DevOps challenges when they upgrade to Orcastrator.”

Summary of Orca Drift Detector features and benefits:

  • Detect configuration drift from defined baselines and standards
  • Compare configurations across environments or points in time to find unexpected differences
  • Instantly view out of compliance configurations
