Individual Cloud Solution
We gladly help you with the following topics:
Together with you, we analyze which cloud scenarios are technologically and economically useful for your current situation. Based on that, we develop a roadmap for your cloud journey. As an independent consulting firm, we can not only provide you with the best possible support in selecting the right cloud provider (e.g. Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platforms) but also discuss hybrid and on-premise operating models. FAQs at project start often include cost and risk analyses and security assessments.
Cloud Platforms & Architectures
Based on experiences in numerous projects, we advise you in all architecture and technology questions concerning the development of your cloud platform. While doing so, we always have the overall architecture of your application landscape in mind. In the concrete implementation, we apply proven and state-of-the-art technologies like Kubernetes, OpenShift, Istio or Serverless-Functions and integrate these into your existing application environment and your familiar development cycle (Build-Server, CI/CD pipelines…).
Modern Software development
To help you make the most out of your cloud platform, we support you both in the migration of existing applications and the development of new systems. We especially pay attention to future-proof architectures and prefer cloud-native technologies.
Coaching and Training
Within seminars that have been tried and tested in practice or on-the-job training, we coach your employees in the use of the new technologies and platforms.
Potential of Cloud Platforms and Architectures
For many companies, cloud services offer proven solutions to meet the dynamic market requirements and to react fast to new challenges. Agile development processes, high availability and demanding applications require a flexible and scalable IT infrastructure and a modern technology stack.
Individual Cloud Architectures
Large cloud providers such as Amazon, Microsoft or Google offer both infrastructure capacities (Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service) and value-added services (e.g. databases as Managed Services) for on-demand use. That is done via standardized interfaces that enable a high degree of automation for configuring the required infrastructure (Infrastructure as Code). Typical challenges in the context of cloud projects are the selection of a suitable provider, the design of future-proof platform architecture and the integration into the existing IT environment and development processes (DevOps, Continuous Deployment etc.). As an alternative to the offerings of public cloud providers and depending on the use case at hand, it might also be worth considering to build a private cloud in your own data center or use hybrid operating models. In particular, container platforms such as Kubernetes offer a high degree of portability and can be used across providers. This also helps to avoid vendor lock-in.
Modern Software development with cloud-native technologies
A cloud environment also enables the use of various new technologies, which – as the name “Cloud Native” suggests – feel at home in the distributed environment and open up new dimensions, not only in terms of scaling. Especially within the context of increasing decentralization of application components (so-called Microservices), there are many exciting options that make, for instance, operating large service meshes easier and bring up completely new paradigms (e.g. serverless). Both, the enormous variety of technologies and the high speed with which these topics are developing can become quite challenging.
We are happy to support you on your way to the cloud and plan, design and implement your individual cloud solution together with you.
Setting up a cloud-native environment is a complex undertaking. With our technology partner Giant Swarm, we offer you an all-round package.
