A complete solution to deliver Kubernetes-as-a-Service

Whether your company has been selling products or services for decades or your company is pushing the limits of the application-driven economy, adopting containers and transforming towards a microservices will drive your business agility.

Get it right, and there’s plenty of success to go around for everybody. Find out how Nirmata can help your team successfully deliver Kubernetes based container services across the enterprise.

Kubernetes-as-a-Service

Enterprises need developers to become agile and not be blocked, while operations teams need to govern and gain visibility across the entire stack, including containers and microservices. However, every single minute your developers spend on tooling and infrastructure is a minute away from delivering business value. What’s needed is a platform designed for enterprise DevOps needs – one where developers get container-native self-service, and operations get the right visibility and control. Kubernetes is becoming the platform of choice for container orchestration and Nirmata provides all the building blocks required to deliver Kubernetes-as-a-service for your organization.

Integrating all aspects of your application delivery lifecycle and driving toward automated deployment to operations, can enable faster feedback ultimately enabling a culture of continuous experimentations and learning that will help your application project set itself apart from others in your company and industry.

With Nirmata you can:

  • Deploy and manage containerized applications as part of your DevOps pipeline
  • Ensure “separation of concerns” so that Ops can set/manage usage policies and Dev can have a container-native experience with fast, scalable, delivery of application environments.
  • Transform your application architecture by leveraging integrated microservices management capabilities
  • Automate container lifecycle management for developers to increase velocity
  • Leverage container visibility and operational metrics to drive application SLAs

With Nirmata you can:

  • Get everything necessary for an optimized, Kubernetes-native continuous delivery solution
  • Enable dynamic management of container-hosts and applications, for optimal resource efficiencies across dev-test, staging, and production environments
  • Container image management, including environment-specific update policies and promotion across deployment stages
  • Secure delivery to production, leveraging separate source and target image registries for each phase in your pipeline
  • Extend your existing toolchain for containers by integrating with our RESTful API
  • Manage multiple environments and clouds for enterprise-scale CI/CD

Continuous Delivery

Continuous delivery is a must-have for businesses seeking to stay competitive by keeping applications up-to-date and quickly delivering enhancements to users. CI/CD initiatives for integrating your toolchain are critical to accelerating the speed of delivery of new applications.   

 Containers are the key to building an agile, optimized software delivery pipeline. Whether you are building a traditional N-tier application or the latest stateless, microservices based application, being able to deploy and manage the entire lifecycle of application containers in your development and test process will help you deliver business value faster.

A continuous delivery pipeline designed and created according to the principles above will not just make the lives of your IT staff easier, it will also maximize return on investment in software delivery by keeping IT processes lean, efficient and agile by guaranteeing better and faster software updates to customers. And it will also help you stand apart from competitors who fail to optimize software delivery.

Application Modernization

Taking your existing apps and simply containerizing them can provide immediate value, and can help get the people, processes, and tools to shift towards an agile DevOps environment. The speed boost you get with containerization, plus the sophisticated application lifecycle automation Nirmata provides, means you can develop faster, test faster, deploy faster, and even recover from failures faster. Containerization allows you to free up resources to focus on the important stuff. Over time you can re-architect and transform the application to be more microservices based.

Key benefits include: Agility, Portability, Consistency, Control, Efficiency.

With Nirmata you can:

  • Take your existing app, containerize, deploy and manage it on any cloud
  • Partition the Inner and Outer architecture as you move to a microservices model

With Nirmata you can:

  • Reduce your application infrastructure by 30%-50%
  • Simplify the lifecycle management of your applications
  • Benefit from automation and portability enabled by containers
  • Increase application SLAs by automated failure recovery and scaling
  • Manage multiple applications across public or private cloud from a single console

Application Consolidation via Containerization

As the number of applications grows, most enterprises are faced with the overhead supporting underutilized infrastructure, resulting in millions of dollars wasted in software licenses and operating expenses. By using containers, you can consolidate your applications with fewer resources and increase the utilization of your existing infrastructure. This can reduce licensing and operating expenses.       

 Containers can also make your applications portable and by using Kubernetes as the orchestration engine you get the flexibility of deploying your applications on public or private clouds with minimum disruption. Nirmata enables management of multiple Kubernetes clusters from a single console and provides full visibility into your clusters so that you can ensure optimum resource utilization resulting in significant cost savings.

Multi-cloud Cluster Management

In an ever-increasing race, cloud providers are delivering compelling services as a one-stop-shop for all infrastructure and application needs. And the early lead some providers had is quickly eroding. However, savvy enterprises are realizing that their business cannot be coupled to a single point of failure – both at an operational level and a business model level.

Hence, enterprises are increasingly choosing to leverage cloud providers for infrastructure services (IaaS) and keep their applications decoupled from the underlying infrastructure. The good news is that containers are a key enabler of this separation. By leveraging open containers, and Kubernetes-based platforms like Nirmata, it’s now possible to make complex application stacks completely portable across any public or private cloud provider!

With Nirmata you can:

  • Quickly onboard any public or private cloud provider
  • Flexibly organize and allocate infrastructure resources
  • Maximize resource efficiencies and save cloud-provider costs
  • Automate the provisioning of container-hosts using provider native concepts and best practices
  • Easily leverage low-cost market priced infrastructure (e.g. AWS Spot Instances) without compromising application SLAs.
