Accelerate Cloud

Navy and Marine Corps accelerate cloud

The officials of the Navy and Marine Corps are looking for opportunities with agile DevSecOps and commercial cloud computing services to move more military data to commercial solutions. This process will help create a system in which they will be able to shift their public data to Amazon’s cloud. Further information available at Why the Navy and Marine Corps accelerate cloud adoption?. Reason for Navy and Marine Corps accelerate cloud The main reason of accelerating DevSecOps cloud adoption by the Navy and Marine Corps is to reduce more than a billion dollars in duplicative IT data center spending. The Navy and Marine Corps have been faced with federal budget shortages requiring the pursuit of IT efficiencies through secure cloud IT services and which they control and to accelerate this process… Continue readingNavy and Marine Corps accelerate cloud

Military Cloud

DoD Cloud Way Forward

As DoD Cloud Way Forward comes ahead and provides an institutionalized, efficient method of soliciting offers from small businesses for agile, devsecops, cloud computing technology services, all task orders are requested, awarded and managed using the GSA Schedule 47QTCA23D000J Contract. Therefore, GSA has propelled the DoD cloud way forward for comprehensive development of this department initiative. As a side benefit of cloud service, the SeaPorte Multiple Award Contract contributes to the Nation’s engine of job growth and Veteran employment opportunities. Importance of DoD Cloud Architecture is an importance of DoD Cloud strategy encouraging that cloud service providers and a DoD cloud customer keep in mind the end goal of a integrated business Micro-services cloud framework for future interoperability. Ideally, a well designed DoD Cloud Strategy will prevent multiplicity and duplicity… Continue readingDoD Cloud Way Forward

Navy IT Savings in the Cloud

Navy IT Savings in the Cloud: Moving Navy data-centers, websites, and networks to secure cloud computing will more than likely reduce cost in IT spending and accelerate mobility of secure applications and secure data for fast paced decision making in critical operational environments. Further information is available at Navy IT Savings in the Cloud. Navy IT Savings in the Cloud Navy IT savings in the cloud is the best way that military branches can develop innovation, collaboration and efficiency. SPAWAR, which is also known as the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command recently indicates that they would like to use commercial cloud computing in its IT systems to gain inherent benefits. Although there has been slow implementation of military-grade secure cloud computing in a commercial cloud setting, the development and… Continue readingNavy IT Savings in the Cloud

Istio for Kubernetes

Why do you need Istio for Kubernetes?

As more and more real-world IT projects embrace cluster-based microservice architecture, the Kubernetes framework alone was not adequate to manage containerized workloads and services. As a result, the service mesh architecture embarked. What is Service Mesh? A service mesh is an extra layer of networked software that you deploy alongside your cluster or your orchestration framework (eg.: Kubernetes). Even though Kubernetes is a pro among container orchestration systems to handle and manage the containers or the connectivity between pods, it lacks transparency to provide us visibility to interconnections (networking) between microservices (pods). Therefore, in a cluster with complex arrays of microservices, Kubernetes alone would be unsuccessful to maintain the resilience of the cluster. It is the service discovery mechanism in Kubernetes that provides network connectivity and load balancing among pods… Continue readingWhy do you need Istio for Kubernetes?

Cloud Native Refactoring

Refactor to Microservices on GSA Schedule for Maximum ROI

Code Restructure to Microservices for Maximum ROI on GSA Schedule Cloud technologies have revolutionized how organizations build applications. Especially in cases where new applications are being built, leveraging the benefits of the cloud can help to maximize ROI. This is not just through the upfront and on-going cost-reductions, but also indirectly through other benefits such as microservices performance and scalability which will be experienced in the long run. More and more Defense and Federal organizations are opting to migrate their applications to the cloud due to the difficulties in managing legacy hardware and large technical teams. Cloud services pricing can be much more economical due to the economies of scale enjoyed by enterprise public cloud providers. However, the process becomes more complicated for legacy applications. This is mainly due to… Continue readingRefactor to Microservices on GSA Schedule for Maximum ROI

What Kubernetes does for Government

What Kubernetes does for Government?

Tackling security compliance and security threats, boosting citizen trust and experience across all government services while managing costs is altogether a long and challenging process for agencies, system integrators, and vendors trying to launch new information systems to the government. Digital technology, digital services platform, or, more specifically clouds and containers can elevate government operations to support and overcome the challenges a government face in an increasingly complicated environment. As you know, Kubernetes: a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on public cloud and a container orchestration system, can and have contributed to developing Government-as-a-Platform (GaaP) to hoist agile, scalable, reliable, and secure government services. Therefore, I’m bringing this article to you to explain how and what can Kubernetes contribute differently to the government. Kubernetes as a Container Orchestration System Azure Government is a… Continue readingWhat Kubernetes does for Government?

Microservices Architecture Best Practices

Microservices Architecture Best Practices

In this blog post, we are going to discuss microservices and best practices for building a successful microservice architecture design in detail. Let’s begin by answering the question of what microservices are! What are microservices? Microservices are a different form of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) style. They are also popularly known as the microservice architecture. Microservices are a group of small autonomous services communicating with each other, and it has the following characteristics. Amazon, eBay, Netflix, and Uber are some of the world-famous companies who use the microservice architecture. Best Practices for Building a Microservice Architecture Let’s discuss some of the best practices your organization can follow to build a successful microservice architecture. Adjusting to the new environment After working on a monolithic architecture for a long period, shifting to… Continue readingMicroservices Architecture Best Practices
