Containers & Microservices

Embrace Continuous Delivery with Containers & Microservices

Containers are primary enablers for enterprises embracing continuous delivery to simplify existing infrastructure. They allow enterprises to release software at a faster pace.

Calsoft, with its container engineering capabilities, enables product companies to develop secure solutions that extend customers’ legacy data centers into new container ecosystems, while empowering them with the necessary tools to manage the platform.

On the other hand, monolithic applications are rapidly being replaced by microservices architecture. Calsoft is catalyzing this process of application modernization for many organizations by helping them transition from monoliths to microservices.

Calsoft offers these solutions as ready-to-use models or customized developments based on customer requirement. Customers benefit in terms of cost and effort savings and reduction in delivery time through rapid and reliable delivery of large, complex applications. Our API solutions make microservices well-defined and standardized, ensuring complete security.

Kubernetes, with its proven maturity and robust architecture, has become the de-facto method to manage containerized workloads and applications. Kubernetes supports all kinds of workloads including stateless, stateful, batch, and daemons, etc. Kubernetes is also flexible to natively support a comprehensive range of features, applications, languages, and frameworks.

Enterprises have started migrating legacy stateful applications to reap benefits of K8s-orchestrated application availability and resiliency. Most enterprises are leaning towards deploying workloads and applications in a hybrid multi-cloud model.

Enterprises now face newer challenges in data management and protection as they need to back-up application definitions and the data, with rebuilding capabilities either for recovery scenarios or for workload movements.

Calsoft, your preferred technology partner, offers full-fledged Kubernetes engineering support in design, development, and support of Kubernetes solutions.

Plugin Development

Our offerings in this space include Docker Network (CNM/CNI-based)/Volume (Flocker)/Security (Contiv)/Authorization) plugins; Kubernetes Network (CNI) plugin implementation and customizations, integrations such as Calico & Open vSwitch; Kubernetes scheduler extensions; Flocker integration for storage arrays; and Windows containers. Also, CNCF-compliant Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver development, which allows Kubernetes integration for Enterprise Storage, offering advanced enterprise functionality for large-scale Kubernetes deployments, including Red Hat OpenShift.

Microservices in Containers

These microservices mostly run in containers—a single service in a single container. These services communicate with each other using REST APIs. Calsoft has a rich experience of developing such APIs and plugins for services and integrating them with on-premises cloud or public cloud platforms such as AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure.

Project Calico Development on Windows Platform

Calsoft helped the customer port their enterprise solutions for Windows-based platforms.
