How it works

Quick to get started.
Effortless to work with.

Experience our high-tech, high-touch approach to platform engineering

Onboarding Process

Getting started is quick and easy

Acquire a custom end-to-end automated application platform in just 7 days.


You don't need much to get started

Castor is inclusive. No matter your size or scale, your organisation deserves a world class devOps.

Here’s all you need to get started.

A containerised application

Kubernetes requires your app to be containerised.

Not yet done?
Don't worry. Our engineers will guide you through.

Set-up related information

We require information such as your application architecture, AWS and GIT access, and current build & deploy process.

Keep them handy.

One junior DevOps engineer

You just need one DevOps engineer with 2-3 years experience to use Castor. Or even a developer with some DevOps know how.

Castor already has DevOps best practices built-in. So you don't need senior level engineers to start with.

Castor Set-up

The 7 day set-up process

Acquire a customised application platform by this time next week!

Day 1
Cluster creation

Cluster creation and infrastructure set-up is done by our engineers.

Day 2
CI/CD pipeline

We connect the application source-code repositories and build the CI/CD pipeline.

Day 3
Set-up best practices

Our engineers will configure best practices unique to your application.

These can be setting up configurations, deployment patterns, logging, limits, auto-scaling considerations, and additional infrastructure.

Day 4
Deploy and test

We deploy the application in staging environment. We then provide platform onboarding training to your team.

You can choose to extend this stage for a 14-day free pilot.

Day 5 & 6

We fix all issues faced by your team during testing and answer your queries, if any.

Day 7
Platform launch

Together, we evaluate platform fit and performance across all key identified metrics.

Upon your approval, we deploy your application in production through our platform. Fully functional.

Continued support

Need more handholding?

Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

It usually takes 2-3 weeks to get comfortable with using the platform. We walk alongside you all that while.

Weekly calls

We schedule 4 weekly calls in the first month post set-up.

Why read documentation when you can speak directly to the architects of the platform?

Email support

Getting stuck?

Email us your queries at

Our engineers will respond within 24 hours.

It took me 3 weeks to get comfortable with Castor.

In the first 3 months itself, Castor has helped reduce our AWS costs by 56%. Which in our case, is 7x Castor’s subscription cost!

And then there is the manpower and opportunity costs it saves.

Investing in Castor is a no-brainer.
