Altogic is the perfect incarnation of what a no code tool is! I would describe it as the Figma for software backend.
It lets you create your application backend with a visual interface. All you need to do is to drag & drop functions and interconnect them. Your backend code will be generated and is ready for deployment. You can define your environment (staging, production..) and deploy your app by geographical location. The hosting is taken care by Altologic directly.
Final step is to link your backend and the according APIs endpoint generated to your frontend.
Altogic offers a free tier up to 2 environments. The next plan cost 25$/month/environment.

Cloud costs is an increasing concern for companies. The average cloud spend by company is as high as 2,2M$/year. That’s why Finops platform have emerged in the past years.
nOps is an automated Finops platform. Their promise is to reduce AWS costs by 50%. How do they do that ?
- nOps is selling and buying RIs on the AWS marketplace for you
- They automatically pause instances during non peak hours
- They provide recommendations to rightsize Kubernetes clusters
The nOps platform has some free tools. When saving you money, they charge a % on the savings made which seems fair !

Holori diagramming tool helps DevOps and Cloud Architects design their cloud architecture, estimate its cost and turn their dreamed architecture into a live infrastructure.
It is currently compatible with AWS, Azure, GCP, Alibaba, OVH and Scaleway.
Unlike Draw.io, Lucidchart or Visio, Holori is way more than just a drawing tool. The software also provides a cost estimation of the designed architecture as well as recommendations to reduce the infrastructure cost. Moreover, the tool compares the cost of an equivalent architecture on other cloud providers which could lead to a reduction in future cloud costs of up to 70%.
Once the user has validated the cloud infrastructure and the provider, Holori can directly provision the designed infrastructure. An alternative is to export the terraform script of the infrastructure and deploy it yourself.
Last but not least, Holori is able to import an existing infrastructure directly from the cloud providers’ console with read-only permissions. This way, users can visualize their infra and identify potential anomalies or unused resources.
Holori comes with a free forever plan with some quotas restrictions. The next plan is at 49$/month/user.
