The Speed Paradox
At Spotify, we’ve always believed in the speed and ingenuity that comes from having autonomous development teams. But as we learned firsthand, the faster you grow, the more fragmented and complex your software ecosystem becomes. And then everything slows down again.
The Standards Paradox
By centralizing services and standardizing your tooling, Backstage streamlines your development environment from end to end. Instead of restricting autonomy, standardization frees your engineers from infrastructure complexity. So you can return to building and scaling, quickly and safely.
Backstage Software Catalog (alpha)
Build an ecosystem, not a wilderness
Manage all your software, all in one place
Backstage makes it easy for one team to manage 10 services — and makes it possible for your company to manage thousands of them
A uniform overview
Every team can see all the services they own and related resources (deployments, data pipelines, pull request status, etc.)
Metadata on tap
All that information can be shared with plugins inside Backstage to enable other management features, like resource monitoring and testing
Not just services
Libraries, websites, ML models — you name it, Backstage knows all about it, including who owns it, dependencies, and more
Discoverability & accountability
No more orphan software hiding in the dark corners of your tech stack
