CONTAINER STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT
Over the past two years containers have become the defacto design standard for applications moving to or designed for the cloud. AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform have built powerful and diverse container options. Foghorn’s Team can guide your team towards a powerful and efficient container strategy that fits your business and goals. Our experience with the right tools and frameworks can place containers at the center of your DevOps development to improve agility, security, performance and the bottom line.

CONTAINERS ARE A GAME CHANGER
Moving from heavy, monolithic applications to lightweight, agile containerized application delivery enhances an organization’s DevOps practice and innovation velocity. Among the numerous benefits of containers, development life cycles are shortened and images running in containers operate faster with increased utilization of cloud resources. Operations teams can release new versions of the application from test, to staging, to production with little effort and high confidence that the app will function as expected. A container based infrastructure can greatly increase development velocity while decreasing operating costs.
By segregating application functionality into small autonomous services aka microservices, applications become easier to build, fix and scale. With individual microservices development, releases and maintenance can be completed in parallel. A lightweight microservice can be operating at 100% in seconds compared to minutes when the entire application had to be provisioned pre containers.
Designed to be immutable and ephemeral, developers take care to design sturdy container infrastructure that can perform, scale and exceed security muster. Containers replicate easily and are disposable by nature. With disposable containers constantly being refreshed, in the event of a zero day vulnerability, damage is limited to a compromised container until patching occurs. With containers continually cycled by container orchestration systems like open-sourced Kubernetes, hackers have less time to benefit from exploited containers.
With repeatable build, test and production environments containers provide consistency across multiple development and release cycles. Containers enable standardized service infrastructure across pipelines, allowing engineers to collaborate more efficiently and spend less time on environment compatibility and more time on features. Replication is fast and simple. With version control, containers allow for quick testing of multiple functions simultaneously and roll back to previous version should upgrade not go as planned.
NAVIGATE CONTAINERS WITH AN EXPERT
Unlike containers themselves, container experience cannot be easily replicated. Foghorn has the experience to orchestrate a container strategy and deployment. Having been at the forefront of container technology, we have learned that containers have constraints and security issues that must be taken into account during design and deployment. With the right know how containers enable a scalable, secure, portable, and cost efficient application environment. Benefit from Foghorn’s experience by reaching out today.
“Foghorn has been our DevOps partner for over 3 years now. They have been very proactive to our questions and have helped us build out our infrastructure. They helped us build and deploy our technology stack in AWS. They have advised us on having the right AWS deployment while maximizing performance, security and reliability while containing costs.”
