Optimize your Cloud Efforts
2 biggest mistakes in cloud transitions? Not adopting your applications to architectures that can be optimized in the cloud.
1) Container based architecture - After a basic "lift and shift" your
focus needs to be in making your applications modular and able to operate within Docker containers. Your application
will then be able to better utilize all of the cloud resources you are paying for vs spending money on allocated
resources that are not being leveraged.
2) Serverless architecture - Your focus on your application optimization needs to center around making your applications more service/message oriented and able to easily adapt, integrate, and grow with different technology stacks. AWS lambda is one way you can build functions into your application without the requirement of a separate server for it to function. The move to serverless architectures will reduce your overall maintenance cost and make your applications easier to maintain.
Microservices and containers - why should you care?
Building your applications in this manner enables you to easily deploy them w ithout concern to configurations and dependencies across different environments. You eliminate the "worked on my box" problem. It further simplifies application scale ability and deployment of new versions.
Continuous Integration and Deployment
Moving into the cloud is a perfect time to optimize your process. Our engineers have implemented today's latest
tool sets and can help you achieve a development environment that is repeatable and reliable. Leverage your CI setup
using automated testing to meet short delivery schedules and high availability.
Our engineers can assist with Jenkins, Nexus, Git, and similar tools to ensure you have a defined development process that meet mission needs.
