Taashee Linux Services: Orchestrating Containers for New Age Data Centers
Modern organizations fail to capitalize upon a string of benefits that any container would guarantee them effortlessly. Rigid data center architecture is the primal reason behind, which leads organizations to adopt a new approach what is now popular as Container Orchestration. Taashee Linux Services, the go-to firm for organizations looking for expertise in multiple technologies focuses exclusively upon Virtualization and Cloud Computing segments. It looks after the growing demands of organizations by making best use of container orchestration tools.
Taking the latest Datadog study into due consideration that most of the companies end up with popular container platforms such as Docker, it is necessary for data centers to up their ante in order to cope with the new age challenges. At Taashee, our team of dedicated professionals specialized in Red Hat suite of technologies such as OpenShift besides others assume the onus of optimizing a data center’s infrastructure using containers. The biggest advantage for such a data center is the successful implementation of container-based computing.
Abhishek Datt, CTO, Taashee Linux Services, explains, “Enterprises prefer their own container platforms based upon their data center architecture and network infrastructure; be it either J2EE or Docker.Hence, we take the concept of container deployment a step ahead with container orchestration. It will result in benefiting clients with workload management and process handling. So, whether it is Google Kubernetes or Docker Swarm; our engineers are capable of implementing container orchestration with ease.”
Data centers rely upon popular tools such as Google Kubernetes or Docker Swarm for their container orchestration requirements. The first aspect to look into before orchestrating containers for a data center is to analyze the platform requirements. Scalability could then be achieved during the actual implementation phase rather than relying upon the actual requirements provided by the client. As the case is with the implementation of a new hardware in any network, it is necessary to conduct POC (proofs of concept) in the case of containers while orchestrating them in new age data centers.
POCs are instrumental in determining the kind of impact that containers are going to have upon a data center post orchestration. All the metrics collected such as CPU, Memory, and OS will uniquely serve as the ideal platform as far as performance matters. Building the prototypes for data centers to determine the impact is the next crucial activity. The containers (such as Mesos) along with a container orchestration engine form to be the crux for data centers managing a host of activities.
Container orchestration engines are responsible for administering communication among clusters and managing shared resources. The advantage is that those engines predict the outcome long before there could be any potential impact upon the data centers. There are alternatives available for data center managers who would not like to delve into the aspect of container orchestration on their own. The implementation of hyper-converged infrastructure results in combining all the resources like Compute, Storage, Networking and Virtualization into a single hardware unit, which functions exactly like orchestrated containers.
Few Benefits of Container Orchestration to Organizations
New age data centers experience optimum environment fidelity because of the portability feature offered by containers. “It offers a lot of flexibility for us in terms of building and testing applications. In the process, it is possible to discover a lot more tools for better orchestration, which makes computing and storage a lot more effective after moving into production,” says Abhishek.
- Best Operational Practices Built-in for Ready Use | Developers working in a container-based environment experience more flexibility when it comes to designing customized applications. In actuality, there is no need for developers to spend exclusive time in working upon the application features, state and behavior. All such aspects are available within the container platforms by default.
- Seamless Scalability with Container Orchestration | At the time of orchestrating containers, one of the primary focuses of a developer is the kind of components to be wired together to gain scalability. Kubernetes or Mesos – it is possible to achieve seamless scalability. Eventually, the end result would be drastic reduction in the overall operational costs.
- Robust Infrastructure for Better Decision Making | The beauty of containers orchestrated as per the data center needs is that they are able to support contrasting inputs at various levels leading towards diversified outputs. People looking forward to better decision making by building infrastructure are the ones to benefit without having to undergo a complete revamp of their application architectures.
