Automation is the cornerstone of accelerating IT in the cloud.
Automation, like security, exists in every aspect of a Cloud Enabled Enterprise. For applications, automation takes the form of DevOps and streamlined Continuous Integration (CI) / Continuous Delivery (CD)pipelines. For Security, SecOps provides the means to keep pace with the speed of cloud development while not sacrificing your organization’s security controls. In networking, NetOps can be automation that is simple scripting against APIs, or it can be as complex as SD-WAN, which can apply intelligence to the routing of traffic on a workload−by−workload basis.
Automation is a foundation of any cloud implementation. Asperitas Consulting can help you manage your cloud assets and speed up cloud setup through automation using such technologies as Terraform, AWS Cloudformation, Ansible, Chef, Puppet, etc. We can help you utilize tools such as AWS Config and Cloud Custodian to enforce your corporate standards and guard against accidental security vulnerabilities. Automation enables your staff to devote more time to adding capabilities for the business by saving time on cloud management.
DevOps & Continuous Integration / Delivery
Automating the development, testing and deployment of applications have reaped significant benefits for organizations that have done it right. Asperitas Consulting can help you setup cloud-based code delivery pipelines using Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) concepts so that you can speed the delivery of new capabilities to the business in a safe way. Asperitas maintains engineering capabilities across all contemporary CI/CD technologies – Jenkins, CruiseControl, Hudson, Packer, Docker, Kubernetes, Apache Mesos, etc.
Software Defined Networking (SDN)
To align the on-premises environment to the cloud environment, the on-premises network environment needs to be re-engineered to provide the cloud capability of “infrastructure as code.” For on-premises environments, network infrastructure as code is SDN. Implementing a comprehensive network backbone based on SDN empowers organizations to create automated hybrid-multi-cloud environments that are responsive, secure and cost-effective.
