We support you at all stages of your Cloud adoption
Nowadays software development is tightly linked to the cloud. Recent research has shown that 90% of new software is made to somehow run in a cloud environment. That is why we have a 'cloud first' mindset as a starting point. Our experienced cloud-, devops- engineers and architects can help you design, build, adjust and maintain the necessary environments to run your application's, if necessary, across geographically separated data centers.
Clouds are considered Platfoms-as-a-Service (Paas), since a cloud provider supplies users with both the platform and the underlying IT infrastructure. Architecting a cloud platform requires more than just abstracting a computer’s capabilities from its hardware components, which is how providers create and offer cloud infrastructure to users. It also requires additional levels of design and development to incorporate containerization, orchestration, application programming interfaces (API's), Network routing, security, management and automation software.
Our Cloud- and Devops- engineers are experienced in designing and implementing simple to the most complex cloud infrastructure and are ready to help you create the most optimal environment.
Application and Infrastructure Migration
This service is intended to move your existing applications including resources and infrastructure to the public cloud. We can take care of the entire process from design to delivery or part of it depending on your wishes. It is also possible to create a hybrid solution in which only a part is transferred to the cloud and the rest of the application continues to run in the existing environment.
Looking to the architecture design we can choose the following approaches:
- Mirror the existing resources of the application (1:1 migration),
- A design from scratch on the infrastructure and integrated services in order to use all the possibilities and solutions a transfer to the cloud offers. In this way we can achieve high levels of flexibility, scalability and availability of the application while optimising the costs of the required environment.
We prefer the second approach as it allows us to enrich the infrastructure with dedicated cloud services that gives us the advantage of automating the deployment process, scalability, and high availability of resources.
When the cloud infrastructure is configured and enriched with complementary services, data migration can take place. Depending on the needs and capabilities, yo can do this yourself (with our support) or entrusts us fully with this task.
24/7 Monitoring And Support
The essence of the service is the on-going attention paid to the reliability of the cloud environment, the application it maintains and all the systems installed in it.
As part of our 24/7 monitoring and support service, our team:
- respond to all attempts to breach security,
- ensure that the application can use the necessary resources to function smoothly and efficiently,
- check the availability, compatibility, consistency and uninterrupted operation of specific services,
- monitor the backups for the correctness and all resources for consistency,
- verify system components validity,
- ensures updates, including safety updates.
The service is implemented on two levels: automatic and with a team of engineers. Its primary purpose is to ensure seamless continuity in the functioning of the cloud environment, the systems installed in it, and the applications it maintains.
The properly configured automated monitoring system detects all incidents, especially alarming ones and emits alerts, giving them the following categories:
- or failure.
Our team of engineers respond to the abovementioned alerts for in accordance with the accepted procedures by:
- diagnosing the problem,
- indicating solutions and immediately implementing them,
- or notifying the client, if a given alert concerns an application or a system whose maintenance is the responsibility of the client.
With the complete security of all resources in mind, System Administrators begin their work with the configuration of key security rules that, over time, are adjusted and adapted to the current needs, based on the observation of potential threats. The knowledge gained from this is used in the process of improving protective mechanisms.
The monitoring and support service is used both by clients who do not have their own System Administrators who could manage and maintain the environment as well as by companies with an extensive organisational structure, where effective, multi-level distribution of information on emerging incidents and threats is critical.
The service includes the development or improvement of a “call tree”, which significantly facilitates communication and separation of tasks in the event of various types of failures and threats. The structure of the tree covers developers teams, security professionals, administrators and external companies, if necessary.
We have a wide experience in building an architecture based on the Serverless framework and the AWS Lambda technology. Thanks to our solutions all micro-service processes can be eventually carried out without the need for AWS EC2 storage.
The service is popular with everyone who seeks to reduce the cost related to using disk resources and wants to gain more control over the performance of their applications. This is possible thanks to the fact that the application is structured as a collection of microservices, which are easier to manage. Building scalable systems without a huge budget is now much easier.
