Scaling Infrastructure

The Challenge

 

Reaching and attaining a global market is a nice problem for many business owners since it implies that the business is performing well, thus necessitating the need to tap into a new market. However, from a technical perspective, this becomes a huge challenge. Most development organizations begin with a grown monolith that suits their business needs for a short while. When they reach a point at which they want to scale, this becomes an issue. If the expansion of your business calls for a reliable, heavily scalable, highly elastic backend, we can help establish its infrastructure and toolchain.  

For whom is this service?

All companies require scaling the size and power of their IT infrastructure to accommodate changes in processing, and storage demands. Unfortunately, most companies scale their infrastructure incorrectly or inefficiently. At the same time, there are different kinds of scaling that you need to understand and differentiate to address your business needs. For instance, you can deploy vertical scaling that adds more processing power and memory to give your system an immediate boost. On the other hand, we have scaling out or horizontal scaling that adds servers to the cloud to ease a bottleneck in the long run. Each scaling approach may add complexity to your IT environment, and you need an expert to handle the task. 

 

For example, since most cloud providers offer a set of instance sizes, you may select a large instance with the RAM size your applications need to run. Unfortunately, such scaling implies that you may have some idle CPU resources. Therefore, this type of scaling implies that you may pay for large instances but only utilize less than half. Besides, this scaling method is slow since it requires time to provision each instance and may hinder your ability to respond to traffic surges. Fortunately, organizations that experience such scaling challenges can utilize our scaling infrastructure service to address the issues and scale just the right infrastructure needed to ensure optimum performance.

Service description

 

Rather than scaling large instances, most of which will be underutilized, this scaling service orchestrates containerized instances that run on host clusters. Essentially, containerization permits you to focus on managing an infrastructure consisting of a controlled amount of clustered host nodes. The service largely depends on Kubernetes and other tools to provision a shared pool of node resources, including RAM and CPUs. As a result, this scaling service enables you to fit several replicas of the containerized application since hardware limitations do not restrict it. Thus, instead of provisioning a machine for each application instance, you can run multiple application replicas on a single machine. The scaling infrastructure also permits you to designate tiny resource measurements to specify the amount of infrastructure your application needs.

Business benefits

Business Growth

 

The primary benefit of this service is business growth. Picture this. As you expand your business, your applications and infrastructure can grow unlimitedly. In addition, as your business grows, you can evolve your containerized applications without the need to redeploy the infrastructure. Essentially, the scaling infrastructure service provides your business with high flexibility regarding how your deployed infrastructure responds to new application changes.
