It’s all about speed! Under this credo, we offer tailor-made platform-as-a-service solutions and advise you on the implementation of your requirements in the context of flexibility, scalability, efficiency, security, and reliability. We do this by applying a technology stack of Docker, Kubernetes and continuous delivery technologies such as ThoughtWorks Go or Jenkins, in order to implement your requirements for a tailor-made, automated, and scalable application platform. In the case of an integrated PaaS environment, we work with OpenShift as a solution for a Docker-based platform to implement your application landscape on.
Docker Container – Secure and efficient virtualization of applications
The open source virtualization Docker allows applications to run in containers. These containers can build on each other and communicate with each other. Unlike normal virtual machines, not every container needs a complete operating system. Only the important data for the application are provided in the container. Compatibility problems with different operating systems (Windows, Linux or OS X) are thus a thing of the past.
Container technology is revolutionizing the way IT departments work in their application landscapes. Take advantage of this new technology and accelerate your development and release process with Docker technology while simplifying this process. With noris network at your side, your continuous delivery pipeline based on Docker containers will become the foundation for secure and easy deployment.
Docker containers offer you the following advantages:
Containers require fewer resources than virtual machines because they do not need to start their own operating system.
Docker containers are started from a container image that can easily be transferred from one system to another as a simple file. Installing, updating and uninstalling software is reduced to a simple copy process or a single file deletion.
Good scalability when additional instances of an application are required.
With a container orchestration (e.g. Kubernetes) a larger number of containers can be managed.
Orchestrate your containers with the help of a Managed Kubernetes Cluster – the PaaS platform from noris! Your software applications speak Cloud Native? You need a cloud service provider where you can not only deploy, scale and manage your container applications, but where you feel safe and secure? A provider where you can run your micro services in a managed Kubernets cluster and concentrate on your applications?
With our Managed Kubernetes Cluster we realize the “substructure” of your micro-service architecture in our OpenStack farm or on the basis of VMware. You have the choice whether you want to deploy to the public environment or use a private cloud with dedicated systems. Kubernetes provides all services such as self-healing, automatic horizontal scaling, rolling releases and much more. Your container applications thus have the basis for safe and efficient operation.
With the operation of your Managed Kubernetes Cluster we take over the monitoring 24/7, take care of updates and patches, as well as major release updates of the software. If you have any questions, you can contact our support at any time during administration hours. We will be happy to advise you on the design and support you in the implementation and integration of your Kubernetes solution.
OpenShift Platform managed by noris
OpenShift is our answer to a fully integrated Platform-as-a-Service solution, both in open source and enterprise version. Conceived on the basis of Docker and Kubernetes, OpenShift offers all the services that are necessary to operate a container-based application landscape. These include, inter alia, repository management, delivery pipelines, container orchestration – in short, everything that is needed for full-scale operation. Customers thus benefit from complete lifecycle management and are additionally provided with typical DevOps tools.
Red Hat OpenShift in general
Red Hat OpenShift is a versatile open source container application platform from Red Hat Inc. for developing, deploying and managing applications.
Red Hat OpenShift was rebuilt in 2016 and 2017 to take advantage of cloud technology, especially the (OpenShift) container. OpenShift offers developers an integrated development environment (IDE). This serves the creation and provision of docker-formatted containers and their administration with the open source container orchestration platform Kubernetes.
Bring your Cloud Native application to enterprise level and benefit from the following advantages at noris:
Dedicated, highly available, secure and scalable orchestration environment for deployment and operation of your containers
Simplified lifecycle management of your application thanks to comprehensive
Services for CI/CD, build and deploy automation
Operation of the entire infrastructure and the OpenShift environment by noris. So you can concentrate on your code and the next big idea.
