Cloud Development and Migrations
You have software systems that need to scale, but you don't quite know how to get there and do it cost effectively. We've all been there. The cloud is a critical component of scale in modern systems. The usage of technologies such as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Microservices, and Web APIs, in combination with server-less computing makes for a powerful, cost-effective option for rapidly scaling both vertically and horizontally.
For the cost conscious, the cloud provides mechanisms for scaling vertically, horizontally, up and down dynamically, which can control how much you spend for your infrastructure, especially at peak times. In dedicated server environments, your IT team has to support the software at peak times as well as low load times. This requires servers that spend most of their time doing very little, but you still have to pay for that excess capacity. You shouldn't be bound to paying for servers when you aren't using them. The cloud provides the mechanisms that make this possible.
Our Cloud Migration Process
We work with you to assess your current systems and which are good candidates for which cloud technologies.
We make a plan to for which types of cloud technologies mesh best with your systems:
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
- Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Build and Deploy
We then execute on our plan and work at the pace that fits your business the best. We work in iterations to make sure we get everything migrated just as you want it.
DevOps Development and Training
DevOps is a software development movement that stems from the more widely adopted Agile Development Methodology that many software development teams are using today. DevOps goes hand-in-hand with the cloud utilizing unit testing, Quality Assurance (QA), Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) (or Continuous Deployment which builds on Continuous Delivery).
The best software development teams ship their code frequently in small iterations. This allows your products to evolve quicker, and complete the feedback cycle on new features, so you don't spend time developing things that won't get used or don't meet business requirements. DevOps practices automate and facilitate this process without you having to pay highly compensated software engineers and IT personnel to copy files, publish systems, perform testing, and document all of this throughout the entire process. CI/CD are systems built just to accomplish this, freeing that time up for your software developers to develop more software!
