Spin Cycle automates and exposes complex infrastructure tasks to other teams and services. This allows a few engineers to quickly and reliably manage thousands of resources—platform automation at scale.

Spin Cycle was purpose-built for platform automation at scale:

  • Fully REST API-driven
  • Highly available and horizontally scalable
  • Real-time status (no dark corners)
  • Extensive code reuse (flywheel effect)
  • Pluggable role-based authentication

Spin Cycle can do anything you can program. The database team at Square uses it to provision and decommission databases, safely stop and start hosts, upgrade MySQL and Docker images, reconfigure services, and more.
