Cloud

Your low-cost, flexible, and fully redundant solution to managed hosting – cloud computing is taking virtualization to the next level.

  • Application Cloud Services

    Containers are a new trend growing in popularity among software developers; providing benefits they can’t get from virtual machines.

    Container cloud computing
    Container cloud computing offers an alternative method for virtualization, in which a single operating system on a host can run many different applications from the cloud.  Containers allow development teams to achieve next-generation software delivery in a more efficient manner than traditional virtualization.  By wrapping a piece of software in a complete file system containing everything needed to run on a server – it guarantees the software will run regardless of the environment.

    I want to learn more  about containers

    Containers vs. Virtual Machines
    Containers differ from Virtual Machines (VMs) in architecture approach which allow additional portability and efficiency.

    CIO’s like containers because of their: 

    • Capacity – more containers can be put onto a server than a virtual machine
    • Versatility - used on public or private cloud deployments
    • Simplicity – fewer management points; single operating system maintenance
    Securing Containers
    Like virtual machines, each container requires its own security approach and should be added as a component to your existing security protocol.  Identifying new security boundaries, using security development lifecycle methods and tools will help you identify additional security measures.  Remember, with any new technology implementation you must identify threats and assess your needs.

     

    Develop. Collaborate. Scale.

    Containers allow developers the environments they need to spin up new instances, free of constraints and tooling conflicts.  Breaking down internal silos, developers can also collaborate with sysadmins by sharing updates, changes and linking and testing against the application.  

    Spinning up and down instantly, containers allow enterprises to identify issues and make changes with minimum disruption to production as in traditional software models.  These attributes make containers attractive to both business and technology focused companies.

    Blurring the lines between rapid application development and infrastructure deployment

    Designed specifically for cloud architecture, cloud native applications are developed and deployed to provide the scalability enterprises need to be competitive in today’s economy.   

    Building cloud applications using products like Cloud Foundry, an open source cloud platform as a service (PaaS), allow developers the capability of rapid application development, deployment and scale applications on both public and private cloud models. 

    Managed Cloud Foundry Solution - why you should choose FNTS

    Lower costs: With FNTS you to buy only the instances you need for your first project, drastically lowering the overall cost of entry.  
    Agile cloud hosting: Choose from a dedicated private cloud platform, a multi-tenant cloud solution,  public cloud or seamless automation across a mix of cloud platforms.
    Exceptional Customer Experience: Managed cloud foundry services include a dedicated account manager, certified engineers, 24x7 service and customized solutions – our staff delivers positive experiences, not business transactions.

    Start with one application, learn how

    Why enterprises choose Cloud Foundry
    • Agility: Built on the open source ecosystem removes vendor lock-in, while agile development allows for rapid delivery of releases across cloud models offering higher quality, predictability and better user experience.                   
    • Microservices: Modular approach increases efficiency, removing challenges of slow moving traditional models             
    • Automation: Automation allows DevOps to build, test and deploy code within the cloud native platform allowing for rapid application delivery. 

    Cloud Foundry is compatible with JAVA, Spring, .NET and other programming languages 

    The culture shift of Cloud Foundry

    Developers remain focused on rapid application development and deployment, not timely legacy infrastructure build out.
    IT Operations has full platform visibility throughout the application lifecycle, including security updates, metrics and logging capabilities.     
    Enterprises achieve a competitive advantage with versatile technology used across multiple cloud platforms, break down internal silos, develop fluid processes and increase agility.

    Cloud Native Platform

     
    Cloud Foundry security measures include:  
    • Customer applications and data are isolated in containers
    • Connections are encrypted
    • Access controls are user based
    • Resource starvation is used to prevent DDOS attacks
