Containers and Microservices

Embrace Cloud-Native Elastic Solutions

Container technology, such as Docker, has revolutionized how organizations can package and deploy applications with increased efficiencies. Container orchestration systems like Docker Swarm and Kubernetes provide management of containerized applications at scale, supporting the implementation of applications as configurations of independently-scalable services. All of these technologies, and the microservices architectures built with them, are under rapid development, with significant advances being made from release to release.

Organizations making significant investments in containers need to develop expertise in these enabling technologies to ensure that applications and supporting infrastructure can take advantage of technology improvements. Taking the time to develop skillsets and processes around a robust, reliable, and flexible toolchain is critical before pursuing a container-based deployment model. Monitoring and alerting systems become more important than ever with workloads that are exponentially larger.

How We Can Help

For organizations that have not yet adopted containers, we’ll work with your team to assess the technical and organizational requirements to integrate these new technologies and practices. If you already have known requirements, we’ll work to architect and implement solutions that make open source technologies like Docker and Kubernetes part of the development and operational fabric. Unitas engagements can start with strategic planning around container adoption, or focus on a technical win through a pilot of a microservices application deployed via a CI/CD toolchain. In either case, we’ll ensure that technical work is aligned with your organization’s strategy and key goals.
