SlapOS | Managed Cloud
Head In The Clouds?
The need to scale is oftentimes a critical and underestimated moment in the
life cycle of cloud-based applications. Additional servers need to be setup,
coordinated and maintained, quickly adding costs and requiring dedicated
infrastructure management. This is where SlapOS can step in and provide Cloud Infrastructure
and Orchestration as a Service. Our services cover both "hosted &
managed cloud" or "managed cloud" .
Management services usually comprise the setup of a SlapOS master that is then
configured to manage any server infrastructure, establish security and accessability
permissions as well as guaranteeing system availability. SlapOS can be installed
fully automated on any device, operating system and virtual machine (VMWare,
OpenStack, Amazon, Azure, Joyent, etc). Of course we can extend SlapOS to
also include user management, billing and invoicing if required through integration
of basic ERP5
Our software developers and network specialists can manage the full life cycle
of applications, handle virtual machines and (SlapOS) containers as well as
develop software releases for any kind of software to be deployed on an
Granular Process or Optimal Instrastructure
As with ERP5,
SlapOS projects are usually based on either a detailed documentary analysis
or the creation of a prototype system which is then extended.
Integration of a SlapOS master into a large existing infrastructures
across multiple data centers or with complex security restrictions is usually
handled best in our step-by-step implementation process. This involves
understanding a system's structure and then adapting SlapOS by means of our
implementation process. Along the way, SlapOS will be fine-tuned to meet
requirements, which oftentimes also includes adding support for new types of
necessary software ("SlapOS-ification").
On the other hand, new structures can best be setup using the expertise of
our specalisits in designing a system that is automated, resilient and scalable
from the ground up. This normally involves creationg a prototype setup which
is then brought "to par" with requirements using gap analysis. This
approach is more tailored to startups, SMUs and systems that may only need to
be partially run through SlapOS.
"Best Practice" at Nexedi
Work at Nexedi is typically divided into milestones and task internally with
small teams (1-3 developers, < 1 consultant) working closely together on a
task-by-task basis. Testing always plays an important role in all projects
and usually can take up to 1/3 of development time. For SlapOS this means
running unit, functional and scalability tests to ensure that any service can
be requested at any time from any location as well as deployment testing. Usually
projects of a certain size include dedicated client staff who are aware of all
requirements and in charge of know-how transfer during and after a project has
A Dedicated Team For A Monthly Fee
After your infrastructure has been setup to be managed by SlapOS, Nexedi
takes over the role of dedicated system manager along with
providing 24/7 support as a base service for a monthly fee.
Should new features be required, our team of software specialists can easily
integrate software packages and extensions through additional work packages.
