Building a reliable, secure, and scalable platform that aims to increase the efficiency of software development teams
Platform Building Trends & Challenges
The objective is to construct a dependable, secure, and scalable platform with the primary goal of enhancing the efficiency of software development teams through a standardized deployment approach.
The platform service encompasses the entire design and development process, facilitating informed decision-making regarding performance, cost, security, and reliability. Additionally, it serves as a dependable escalation point, providing support for the system during its production phase.
Cost Saving: Transition to Kubernetes means decreasing the number of servers/VMs by increasing the per-OS resource utilization. Besides, the transition paths include functions like scaling without horizontal scaling (Event Sourcing), Serverless, and auto-scaling (Even scaling to 0!) that are related to overall cost decrease.
Performance: Decoupling the architecture, adding caching layers, eventual consistency, and auto-scaling increase the performance. Replacing the Monolith architectures with lightweight and lean architectures means higher performer applications and services.
Cloud-Native: Kubernetes-driven infrastructure, along with Cloud functions, brings self-healing and automation to your development and deployment
Scaling: Scaling on Y-axis and Z-axis dimensions, rather than scaling on just the X-axis dimensions.
