Cloud-Native App Development: Containers and Serverless Computing

30 Jun
By: ClearScale

At a time when business leaders are trying to create more value with fewer resources, containers and serverless computing enable organizations to reduce IT overhead, improve deployment speed, streamline app development, and more. However, taking advantage of these technologies requires much more than simple “lift-and-shift” migrations. To achieve maximum performance, your applications must be built for the cloud. Otherwise, you risk leaving tremendous growth and cost-savings opportunities on the table. One of our Solutions Architects, Ed Ip, led a webinar

Is It Time to Go Serverless for App Development?

23 Jun
By: ClearScale

For app development, infrastructure is usually cloud-based or server-centric. But developers do have another option — one that can help them significantly decrease their go-to-market time. It’s called serverless, and it’s what the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) considers to be the next step in cloud-native computing. Despite the name, serverless doesn’t mean that there’s no need for servers to host and run code. It simply means that developers don't have to provision them or manage infrastructure

An often-cited IDC report notes that Amazon Web Services (AWS) ran nearly two times more Windows server instances than the next largest cloud provider in 2017. There are many reasons why so many companies choose AWS for their Windows workloads. The most compelling among them may be the cost advantages. Another IDC study put the value that its participants would achieve by running Windows workloads on AWS at an average of $6.59 million per organization. Pricing Advantages The savings

How Containers Facilitate Cloud-native App Development

Although they’re not restricted to running in the cloud, “containers” increasingly pop up in discussions about cloud-native application development. But before getting into the “why,” here’s a brief overview of what containers are. In simple terms, a container is a standardized package of software. Everything needed for the software to run is inside the container, including the software code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, and settings. Containers isolate apps’ execution environments from each other, but share the underlying

Is Cloud-native Application Development Worth It?

28 May
By: ClearScale

With the right development team, just about any application should be capable of being moved to the cloud. But to fully reap the benefits of the cloud, it’s not enough to move apps there. For optimal performance and value, an app should be architected and created specifically to run in a cloud environment using what’s known as cloud-native app development. This is different from the traditional waterfall approach development teams have used previously and is the basis for

Deployment Pipeline Facilitates Complex Workloads Migration

27 May

From reducing infrastructure costs to minimizing security risks, organizations are increasingly aware of the benefits they can reap from modernizing their continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines and migrating them to the cloud — the AWS cloud in particular. However, conducting a migration isn’t easy — especially when it involves a diverse mix of technologies and platforms. Containerizing workloads, using CI/CD, and automating infrastructure provisioning are among the tactics that help facilitate the migration process. But many organizations

Many businesses today are brushing up against the limitations of legacy IT architecture. On-premises systems don’t cut it anymore for those who need to scale, innovate, and adapt to market trends and competitive disruption. However, migrating critical applications away from old-school infrastructure can be intimidating and difficult. Companies that require more than simple “lift-and-shift” migrations must have robust capabilities and expertise to move to the cloud successfully. Otherwise, they can fall victim to a variety of issues in the

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Competency Program is designed to showcase AWS Partner Network (APN) organizations that demonstrate both technical proficiency and customer success across numerous solution areas. The program awards designations by industry, application, and workload. For example, partners can earn AWS competencies in Healthcare, IoT, Mobile, Microsoft Workloads or dozens of others. Earning a competency is challenging. Cloud service providers must possess deep AWS expertise, prove technical readiness, and provide documentation that highlights positive customer outcomes. AWS competencies

AWS Stands Out for App Modernization

14 May
By: ClearScale

Despite all the white papers, blogs, ads, and other materials produced on the topic, there continues to be a misperception about cloud migration. While the benefits of cloud computing are well documented, simply moving to the cloud doesn’t ensure they will all be realized. That’s especially true if the apps being moved weren’t designed and built with the cloud in mind. Enter application modernization. App modernization entails taking existing apps — typically on-premise, legacy, and monolithic — and changing

The COVID-19 pandemic has positioned cloud technologies center stage for many organizations — particularly those in the healthcare industry. Healthcare providers and researchers, as well as private sector companies and government entities, are racing to find diagnostics tests, treatments, and cures for the deadly virus. That’s driving the need for collaboration and communication platforms and portals for safely exchanging information. The cloud is enabling these tools. There’s also much COVID-19-related data being gathered, stored, processed, and shared. As a
