Managed Container Services

Speed up your software release cycles with nine !

Your company has brilliant developers capable of creating revolutionary apps and digital experiences that can guide your organization toward its next major growth phase. The problem, though, is that the standards for groundbreaking apps change regularly. If your developers haven't harnessed the agility that container technology- can give to a company, you'll always remain one step behind the competition.

 

Challenges of traditional software development

  • Slow release cycle.
    Your developers need to build, test and deploy entire applications as major releases. With each new release, an application becomes larger -- and the release cycle becomes slower.
  • Incompatible environments.
    Preparing for a new release is difficult if your development, staging and production environments don't run exactly the same software and operating systems.
  • Inflexible deployment strategies.
    Would you like to deploy different sets of features to different types of users? That's not possible with monolithic software unless you want to develop, test and deploy each version separately.
  • Inflexible infrastructure.
    What do you do if your application encounters unexpected demand? If you host the application in a traditional data center environment, you'll need to upgrade your servers -- a complex, time consuming and expensive undertaking.

 

How Container Technology Improves Software Development

A traditional online application runs as a process on a server. Before the application can become available, the server needs to load its operating system and any other services required for the application to work. With containerisation, because the application runs as a virtual process, you are able to reach highest flexibility.

Several Ways that Container hosting can improve on traditional application development

A container doesn't load a full operating system. Instead, it loads only the supporting services required for an application to work. A container is ready to use almost instantly.

Unlike a traditional server -- which must be on and available at all times for a hosted application to function -- a container spins down fully and will not generate costs.

A container runs in a virtualized environment within a cloud. The cloud itself is a virtualized environment running on many physical servers simultaneously. In our managed Docker environment, we utilize infrastructure as a code. With infrastructure as a code, a Docker host automatically provisions additional cloud infrastructure as needed to keep applications running fast.

Container hosting is ideal for an application based on microservices. Each microservice can exist as a distinct Docker image. You can develop microservices separately. You can use microservices to quickly add features to applications. You can even use the same microservice from multiple applications.

Docker and Nine

We selected Docker and OpenShift as part of our engaged partnership with Redhat as the basis for our managed container product because both Docker and Openshift in this field are unmatched. With our managed Docker environment, there's no need to worry about incongruity between development environments because every environment is the same.

We'd love to be part of your cloud journey !
