Fox is where you manage your application programming interface (API) pipelines. Fox uses a continuous integration pipeline to provision, build and deploy RESTful web service resources into a cloud account of your choice.
- Turn key continuous integration pipeline saves you time and frustration
- Serverless architecture
- T-shirt size infrastructure configuration choices
- Automatically provision, build and deploy resources into your own cloud account when your API source code changes
- Set up as many environments as you need through unlimited stages
- Confidently deploy new versions of your APIs when you include post-deployment tests in your pipeline configuration
- Portal Access
- API Access
- Only pay for what you use pricing
- Email based technical support
How it Works
First, you create a new pipeline configuration through the Fox Portal. Next, you provision a pipeline based on this configuration into the Xilution platform through the Fox Portal. Provisioning a pipeline into the Xilution platform invokes it for the first time. Pipeline invocation includes provisioning cloud resources into your cloud account and building/deploying/testing your API.
The following diagram describes a Fox pipeline in detail.
The pipeline uses xilution-integration-fox-ci to determine how it executes and which resources are provisioned into your cloud account. The pipeline also reads from a GitHub repository containing the source code for your API that you specified in the pipeline configuration. Refer to xilution-integration-fox-example for example API source code that integrates with Fox.
Changes to xilution-integration-fox-ci or your API source code cause the pipeline to be invoked.
Costs & Pricing
You are responsible for fees incurred through the use of resources provisioned into your cloud account by Xilution via Fox. These fees are paid directly to your cloud provider through your cloud provider account. In addition to these cloud provider fees, Xilution charges the following fees per provisioned pipeline. Xilution fees are charged to the credit card associated with the organization or sub-organization to which the pipeline is associated on the first day of each month for pipeline usage incurred during the prior month.
At the moment, we only support AWS. We plan to add more cloud providers in the future.

The Fox Portal is an easy to use web based interface where you can create, update, delete, provision and deprovision API pipelines.
We collect key metrics on resources Fox provisions into your cloud account. This helps us determine if you are using your provisioned resource in the most efficient way.
When the key metrics that we monitor fall outside normal operating ranges, we will work with you to determine the best course of action.
From time to time, cloud resource standards change. We can automatically update your provisioned resources to the latest standards.
