Containers are an enabling technology that enables the unification of migrated resources, without which many companies would not be able to transfer their resources to the cloud. Thanks to them, cloud computing becomes available to an even wider group. We work using solutions based on both Docker and Kubernetes technologies.
Selected applications, systems or their components, after packing into a previously prepared container, become somewhat compatible with the cloud and their migration becomes possible. The container contains parts of the application, selected services or links between different applications. They can also include:
● instructions on cloud resources that are necessary to maintain the application,
● information on technological components,
● rules for downloading the current version of the source code.
After placing the resources in the container), the whole thing is placed in the computing cloud and, using special scripts, links between the containers are established.
The solution is especially useful for all whose applications have outdated code, unprepared for serving from the cloud. It is also used by owners of complex environments that require prior unification in order to be able to efficiently manage them. Container technology also goes to people who value process automation, which is possible without going into the details of the resources kept each time.
We assume that clear rules of cooperation and division of responsibilities are the basis of an efficient and agile project. That is why we describe the ways of working in such detail and agree with clients on the need to prepare on his part.
In the case of using containers or their orchestration, please only prepare a list of technologies that are necessary to create and maintain the application and determine the relationship between its individual elements. That's all.
Docker is an open-source technology used to automate application deployment in the form of portable, self-contained containers that can be run in the cloud or on-premise. As certified participants of the Docker community, we know the solution perfectly and successfully use it when implementing projects for our clients. We also use Kubernetes technology (open source software), a tool that is used to orchestrate/manage containers. It allows you to run containers and platform workloads and helps to troubleshoot problems that occur when scaling multiple containers deployed on multiple servers.
Both technologies are used to build, deliver, and run applications in a virtualized container environment. In addition, we also use, among others:
• Amazon ECS - AWS service for Docker container orchestration, enabling container launch and cluster management of EC2 instances;
• Amazon EKS - a supporting service for open-source Kubernetes. It allows you to implement and manage containerized applications at scale;
• Google Kubernetes Engine - enterprise platform for orchestrating and managing containers;
• Ansible - automates the management of servers and configuration changes as well as running tasks on demand.
The most important benefit of using containers is the possibility of migrating to cloud computing even those applications that were not originally prepared for the transfer process. It allows you to unify resources and then migrate them freely. Thanks to containers, we get a fully independent environment, and all processes are automatic.
We gain agility, time and optimize IT costs.
