The right use of the cloud enables making significant savings. Thanks to Cloud Native applications and using the serverless model you only pay for what you actually use. Computing capacity is activated in response to a specific event and you are only charged for its triggering.
No server management
When you choose the serverless model, it is the cloud provider that is responsible for server management. This means that when you prepare your system for operation, you don’t manage the infrastructure layer. Servers are activated based on your needs and you don’t need to spend hours on their configuration.
Applications designed according to the Cloud Native model are highly available by definition. They were developed so that in case of possible malfunctions they continue to operate. This makes your business resistant to unexpected occurrences while remaining open to Clients.
You no longer need need to guess how much computing power or database capacity you need for your system to work. Serverless dynamically adjusts to your needs so you can be sure that your systems will never fail, and server capacity will always match the demand.
In a traditional model the creation time depends mostly on the availability of the hardware and the administrator, who would prepare it for safe and efficient operation. In serverless you don’t need to worry either about hardware or the configuration. Servers are added in real time and you don’t waste your time on waiting.
Serverless in Transition Technologies PSC
SERVERLESS is the approach of creating software or architecture where specific public cloud services are activated by events and related infrastructure is a responsibility of the provider.
According to specialists, this solution is the closest to the concept of the cloud, which is being spread around the world.
Why? Systems built this way are highly scalable, highly available, don’t require devoting time to server management (despite the name, the servers are obviously there) and, most of all, you pay only for the resources that have actually been used.
How does it work? Most often code is deployed inside containers, which are activated in response to specific events. These could be http/https requests, database events, alerts, cron tasks and many, many more. Such code is transmitted to the provider in the form of a function, which is why this model is called FaaS, that is Function as a Service. Depending on the cloud provider, the service may take different names. In Amazon Web Services it is Amazon Lambda, in Microsoft Azure – Azure Functions and in Google Cloud Platform – Google Functions.
CLOUD NATIVE refers to applications designed so that they use the full potential of a public cloud.
It enables building a competitive advantage thanks to the speed, scalability, flexibility and optimal budget management offered by the cloud.
For an application to be called Cloud Native, it needs to fulfil specific requirements. Best practice is for it to use services managed fully by the cloud provider. In the case of compute – with FaaS or managed containers. Apart from this, it should be based on a public cloud (e.g. AWS, Azure or Google Cloud), microservice architecture-oriented and should comply with “design for failure” rules.
The cloud is not the future. It is the present. Anyone who wants to keep up with the market should already be taking advantage of opportunities it creates. If your business is not thinking about migrating to the cloud, know that your competition has probably done so, or at least developed a plan for adopting the cloud soon. At Transition Technologies PSC, we help our clients not only in migration and cloud management. We also help develop their businesses by implementing IoT and Augmented Reality solutions. Combined with cloud technology, they greatly accelerate teamwork and deliver data to improve business processes and increase ROI.
Cloud Services Manager
The team at TTPSC are true professionals. While working with them for nearly a year in migrating our PLM system to their managed service (on AWS) and developing enhancements to the applications they have demonstrated a commitment to our success and satisfaction.
Most impressive is their cooperative and transparent approach to guiding us through the process as well as the depth of their knowledge in both our applications and the infrastructure needed to support those. I look forward to continuing to work with them through our PLM and Digital Transformation journeys.
