Building and operating cloud-native apps requires a cloud-native mindset. We can show you how software gets built with the new tech stack
Lift and shift an application to the cloud makes it not flexible and scalable. A lightweight microservice architecture that covers cloud security and prevents vendor lock-ins should be the base to improve the customer experience with your modern, highly available applications.
The platform that supports our apps needs to be as flexible as the software. Modern infrastructure with low maintenance takes over multiple aspects, which we developed before. PRODNYNA is an independent partner of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and has a long history in open-source technologies. We can help you find and implement the right solutions covering your business needs.
New way of working
Moving from traditional IT to the cloud-native approach requires changes on multiple levels. It impacts the entire software development and delivery process, the underlying architecture, and how you operate your systems.
PRODYNA understands enterprise IT needs and offers to advise and implement a cloud-native migration strategy tailored to your company’s requirements. We can help you streamline your development processes by establishing fully automated Continues Integration (CI) and Delivery (CD) pipelines, improve your IT operations by moving towards immutable infrastructure and build reliable and scalable cloud-native applications.
Operating cloud-native apps without a cloud-native infrastructure is nearly impossible and requires extensive manual work. Furthermore, if the software is deployed on-premise or at a hyper scaler, we need automation for deployment, scaling and managing the containerized apps. Kubernetes will cover all these aspects and is the heart of many cloud platforms. PRODYNA is an official certified Kubernetes service provider and certified Kubernetes training provider of the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation.
Cloud-native apps follow modern design patterns described in the twelve-factor app methodology. In addition, to these well-known twelve factors, there are some extra factors like API first, usage monitoring and especially telemetry or a strong authentication and authorization model.
Often it takes more work to build services that only implement a specific business case. The benefit of a distributed set of independent services is that we can develop and deploy them independently. This will speed up not only the development but also fasten dependency updates. Each service could define its technology stack with storage or programming language. The communication between the services can be implemented with protocols like HTTPS, gRPC or messaging. Determining the proper boundaries and selecting the best language and communication protocol requires a certain amount of experience. We can help you split up your monolithic landscape by mastering challenges like communication, resiliency, distributed data and security.
Containerization, for example, with Docker, should be one of the first steps when starting with cloud-native development. Every app which runs on a server can be containerized by putting the code with all its dependencies and the required runtime into an image. This brings us massive isolation and enables us to run it on every environment, like on-premises or in the cloud. Also, nearly every modern open-source app is available as a container, making integrating monitoring, logging and other tools in our new landscape easy.
Continuous integration and delivery are well-known to most developers by now. However, the amount of operating work and complexity in the cloud-native world is much higher than in an old monolithic landscape. Automating the infrastructure with the Infrastructure as Code principle, for example, with Terraform, is the only way to build up the same stages without side effects in a documented and reviewed way. Since our infrastructure is code, we can handle it like our software and establish the same processes. Every commit will be built, tested and rolled out automatically after the approval - independent of whether it is software or infrastructure. PRODYNA has a lot of experience in automation and can provide blueprints for an efficient platform.
Twenty years of experience with software architecture and custom software development projects for multiple of the world’s largest enterprises have generated the expertise PRODYNA provides to help you modernize and migrate applications to a cloud-native environment. We are a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider and Kubernetes Training Partner with recognized credentials from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). We provide unbiased consulting under consideration of your company’s situation combined with an open and cloud-agnostic technology stack. Whether your company is moving to a public cloud provider (e.g., Azure, AWS, GoogleCloud, Swisscom, etc.) or you run your own data center, you will profit from our expertise.
Cloud-native modernization of enterprise applications
The demand for short development cycles, massive scalability, and increased reliability drives the cloud-native revolution. This offering will introduce your organization to containers and Kubernetes by setting up a cloud-native application environment and migrating one of your existing applications to facilitate your modernization efforts.
Creation of a cloud-native enterprise application MVP
The need for a short time to market, low risk, massive scalability, and increased reliability is driving the cloud-native revolution. A Minimal Viable Product (MVP) is the smallest possible functional version of a future product or service. An MVP tests the viability of a business idea or technology. With this offering, we will turn your idea into a fully functional MVP running on a cloud-native platform.
Look at the training courses PRODYNA offers in the cloud-native area.
More and more companies are switching to the public cloud and face the challenge of setting up their infrastructure in a comprehensible, secure, cost-effective, and fast manner. The principle of "infrastructure as code" was developed from this need. In this training, the question of what infrastructure as code is and how to implement these principles using the cloud-agnostic open-source software Terraform according to best practices will be answered and depend on various exercises.
The demand for short development cycles, massive scalability, and increased reliability drives the cloud-native revolution with containers and Kubernetes at its heart. Our training offering will give your company the knowledge and skill to leverage the potential containers, and Kubernetes offers successfully. PRODYNA is a Kubernetes Training Partner and a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider with recognized credentials from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
