Cloud Consulting Expertise
Microservices, Cloud native applications, Containers, Kubernetes are what most organisations are thinking about these days. Cloud Native Computing Foundation is assembling projects that help with building cloud native applications. We help with:
- Getting Started with Kubernetes
- Architectural designs and
- Building your microservices applications using the tools assembled by the CNCF. At the moment, the tools include: Kubernetes, Prometheus, Fluentd, Opentracing, Linkerd, gRPC, CoreDNS, Containerd, rkt.
The beauty of the cloud is that from the customer perspective, it is all software based (virtual resources). As such, infrastructure can be programmed, a phrase commonly known as infrastructure-as-code. This put automation at the focus of cloud operations management. By learning to program and put automation in place, human errors are reduced and you operate 24/7, on auto-pilot. We help in the design of continuous integration (CI), continuous deployment(CD) and continuous delivery practices with emphasis on the AWS cloud services such as Code Pipeline, CodeBuild, CodeDeploy, CodeCommit and Cloudformation templates.
Moving to the cloud requires a new set of mindset in architectural designs.The cloud provide you with the virtual hardware resources but you have to be able to design highly scalable, highly redundant and highly available systems. You also have to be able to design architectures that fit well your existing applications. There are standards such as the Well architected framework that your cloud architectures must conform. We can help with your cloud architectural designs.
Cloud security is still one of the major concerns when corporations consider moving to the cloud. Cloud security need to be carefully designed to meet security compliances and certifications.We help with cloud security strategy, architecture, implementation and operations of cloud securities to meet compliances and certifications.
When moving to the cloud, we help with strategic cloud governance, risk and compliance consulting services to help you move to the cloud securely and without risking cloud data security.
Cloud native computing uses an open source software stack to deploy applications as microservices, packaging each part into its own container, and dynamically orchestrating those containers to optimize resource utilization. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosts critical components of those software stacks including Kubernetes, Fluentd, Linkerd, Prometheus, OpenTracing, gRPC, CoreDNS, containerd, and rkt; brings together the industry’s top developers, end users, and vendors; and serves as a neutral home for collaboration. CNCF is part of The Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization. For more information about CNCF, please visit the website
About Amazon Web Services (AWS)

New services are quick to provision, without upfront capital expense, allowing enterprises, start-ups, SMBs and customers in the public sector to access the building blocks they need to respond quickly to changing business requirements.
About Openstack Cloud Platform
OpenStack is a free and open-source software platform for Private and public cloud computing, mostly deployed as an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). The software platform consists of interrelated components that control diverse, multi-vendor hardware pools of processing, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center. Backed by some of the biggest companies in software development and hosting, as well as thousands of individual community members, many think that OpenStack is the future of cloud computing.
Openstack has a huge software ecosystem within the opensource community that are used along with Openstack for building cloud infrastructure. These include Kubernetes, Docker, Ansible, Ceph, OVS, OpenContrail, OPNFV, OpenDaylight, just to mention a few.
