Containerization | Linux Polska offer

What you should know about containerization?

Containerization involves delivering executable application code with only the necessary libraries and configurations required for its execution. This creates a lightweight application vehicle, known as a container, which is designed to operate consistently across any runtime environment. Containers have now become the standard for delivering, running, and managing modern applications. Moreover, they can be deployed without the need for coding in both public and private clouds (cloud-ready), allowing for greater portability and resource efficiency compared to traditional virtual machines (VMs).

  • Collaboration between software providers and production environment administrators is inefficient.
  • The cycle of delivering new, minor modifications to applications takes as long as delivering a completely new version of the application.
  • We are unable to respond quickly to increased application loads caused by a growing number of users.
  • We need to update the application, but we already know that part of our data processing will be carried out in the cloud.
  • We are moving IT resources to the cloud-whether private, public, or hybrid.
  • Faster market introduction of new products and services in line with market needs and dynamics, thanks to more efficient delivery of modern applications (shortened Time to Market) while maintaining reasonable Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
  • Increased innovation by the IT team in creating new services and solutions by reducing the amount of repetitive tasks.
  • Enhanced service availability through reduced downtime caused by the deployment of new functionalities.
  • Uninterrupted access to applications thanks to built-in high availability mechanisms and system fault tolerance.
  • Cost optimization of support by reducing the duration of failures.

Containerization facilitates troubleshooting and bottlenecks in existing applications and opens up opportunities for developing new applications by:

  • increasing the flexibility of application delivery through the adoption of a cloud-native approach;
  • hosting traditional applications in a modern, portable environment;
  • running analytical applications and data science tools in a new scalable environment;
  • continuously updating software and delivering new modifications using the CI/CD process and tools;
  • enhancing application security through isolation, network segmentation, environment standardization, and monitoring;
  • automating administrative and development tasks within the CI/CD process;
  • reducing the labor intensity of administrative tasks, thereby optimizing the costs of application service;
  • improving communication and cooperation between developers creating applications and administrators responsible for their proper functioning in the production environment (DevOps approach).

Key technologies currently used to deliver and manage container-based applications include:

  • Docker: A tool that enables the creation, packaging, and delivery of application containers, as well as their management;
  • Kubernetes: A platform for managing containers that automates the processes of deploying, scaling, and managing container-based applications;
  • Rancher: A container management and orchestration tool that provides simple and efficient control over container infrastructure;
  • OpenShift: A container management platform based on Kubernetes that facilitates the deployment, scaling, and management of applications in the cloud;
  • VMware Tanzu: A container management solution that integrates with VMware infrastructure, allowing for the deployment and management of containerized applications in a virtualized environment.

How we work – cooperation stages

1Analysis and planning

Assessment of the initial situation, identification of areas for change, and recommendations for solutions.

2Solution testing

Proof of Concept (PoC), pilot or partial implementation.

3Solution evaluation

Verification of the assumptions made, determination of whether the solution will deliver the expected benefits.

4Solution implementation

Execution of the verified plan.

5Support and development

Ensuring the sustainability of the solution and its alignment with the organization’s goals.

Containerization services — how can we help you?

Consulting for optimal container platform selection

We analyze your IT environment and resources to understand your containerization needs. Based on this, we provide recommendations and key success factors for choosing the optimal container platform. We assess your IT team’s readiness and propose appropriate training. Our mission is to ensure that the chosen platform is the most effective for your organization.

Container platform audit

We begin by analyzing your current situation in the context of the container platform. We check if the configuration complies with industry standards and best practices. Based on this, we develop specific recommendations and an implementation plan. We aim to optimize your container platform for maximum efficiency and compliance.

Design and deployment of container platform in cloud environment

We analyze your needs and options for dividing processing between the cloud and your data center. We develop the architecture (bare metal, virtualization, cloud) and failover scenarios, ensuring data security. Finally, we install the chosen container platform in the cloud environment (public, private, or hybrid), configure it, and perform testing. Our goal is to provide an efficient and secure container environment.

Optimizing the performance of the container platform

We analyze the performance of your container platform based on monitoring data and identify potential bottlenecks. We develop a performance improvement plan and recommendations for proactive monitoring. Furthermore, we implement configuration changes and initiate change management processes to ensure optimal platform performance.

Migration of container platforms

We develop the target architecture for migrating the container platform. We install the chosen platform in the target environment and carry out data migration. After the process is complete, we provide support for the newly migrated platform.

Migration and modernization of applications on container platforms

We review your applications to assess their readiness for containerization. Then we deploy and configure them on the selected container platform. We also carry out modernization work if the application requires changes in architecture or code to effectively operate in a container. We provide ongoing updates and advice on optimizing application performance.

Design and implementation of CI/CD processes on container platform

We analyze your current software development process and then define and implement a personalized application development and delivery pipeline (CI/CD). We select and implement appropriate tools. Our goal is to provide an efficient and smooth process that will enhance the performance and quality of your applications.

Creating container images for applications

We define the runtime environment for your application and automate the process of building container images. We assess related IT security vulnerabilities and integrate image creation at the appropriate stage of the CI/CD process.
