Transitioning to a flexible, modular cloud native architecture

DevOps, the methodology powering digital transformation, is enabled by the cloud native stack. To cut time to market and increase speed of innovation, organizations are migrating their applications to a cloud native architecture. Inherently open, flexible, and agnostic, these technologies enable organizations to pivot with market demands.
Our team of DevOps engineers and architects will help you identify and implement the optimal cloud strategy and development toolkit to migrate to a modern, modular architecture with minimal lock in. Whether you need assistance from start to finish or just in one area, our team is here to help.

DevOps Strategy

It all starts with the development of a roadmap for a modern, future-ready cloud native architecture based on your unique requirements – whether on AWS, Azure, GCP, or all the above. Increasingly differentiated, some clouds are more suitable for specific use cases than others. Other strategic considerations include whether to leverage cloud services or their open source cloud native counterparts. It’s also important to consider which infrastructure as code toolkit to use, how to set up disaster recovery, ensure reliability, and manage costs efficiently.
A cloud native architecture should be able to span multiple environments, whether your current requirements demand it or not. Given the pace of technology developments, chances are, they’ll change sooner rather than later. We can ensure you don’t have to rearchitect your system yet again.

DevOps Strategy Action Plan

  • Organizational DevOps maturity assessment
  • Enterprise requirement definition
  • DevOps roadmap definition
  • DevOps metrics, tools and process definition
  • Optimal DevOps toolkit recommendation
  • Multi-environment strategy

DevOps Implementation

Before containerizing your applications, they must be made cloud native compatible. We’ll help you create templates (e.g. Helm) and additional end points for Kubernetes compatibility (e.g. health checks, logging, monitoring, etc.). Finally, your cloud native compatible applications will be injected into the pipeline. An automated CI/DC pipeline for canary, blue-green releases or both with an appropriate service mesh will be implemented. Security is built into the developer and testing pipeline (vulnerability test, static code test, etc.) and a proper container registry set up.

DevOps Implementation Action Plan

  • Application containerization and migration to a Kubernetes based architecture
  • CI/CD pipeline creation, maintenance, and automation
  • Version control and config management
  • Infrastructure provisioning and management
  • Test and QA automation
  • Centralized logging and monitoring
