Kubernetes Consulting

Kubernetes is an open-source system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts; providing basic mechanisms for deployment, maintenance, and scaling of applications. At Storm Reply, we are utilizing Kubernetes with Public Cloud Providers to leverage its possibilities with a highly flexible infrastructure and additional services like managed databases, file shares, container registry and many more.

Storm Reply combines long term experience as a premier Amazon Web Services Consulting Partner and a in-deep Kubernetes expertise to develop and implement user-centric cloud-native platforms and applications. Our engineers proofed our capabilities for instance with building Kubernetes backends for millions of connected cars in the automotive sector or in high security & availability solutions in the telco industry.
Additionally, our consultants are Kubernetes Certified Administrator (CKA) and Kubernetes Certified Application Developer (CKAD).

We provide you with consultancy and services about Kubernetes, while working with existing deployment and operation tools like kops, or with a managed solution like AWS Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS).

We can help you to get started with Kubernetes in a successful way!

During a workshop and accompanied requirements session, the Storm Reply experts will define together with the customer a specification of the Kubernetes cluster: this includes instance sizes, network architecture, storage requirements and all other necessary topics to get started. If you are unsure about your specific needs we can start with a so-called “best practices cluster”. These clusters are per default able to autoscale so that the cluster can grow and shrink with the workload on it. Based on this information we can define the resource requirements and optimize instance and storage sizes for optimal resource consumption.

Kubernetes allows you to easily implement micro-service architectures, event-driven architecture, and evolutionary architectures which can be sometimes hard to design and realize. We can support you with solution architects and developer who build solutions for different industries on Kubernetes and OpenShift. With their application development and implementation experience of API gateways, self-healing pods, event streaming, serverless and so on, we can help you to design your cloud-native solution architecture.

Kubernetes Operation and Managed Service

All projects will sooner or later come to an end. We help you in the transition phase and enable you to operate the platform and all dependencies. Otherwise, we can take over the operation. As Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP) and AWS certified managed service provider we bring the skills and team power to operate your platform and application, integrate it into our monitoring, logging and continuously update and maintain it. For this, we follow the DevOps principles with both aspects, organizational and technical. This includes also the financial operations (FinOps), managing your AWS account and the resources used to optimize the consumption / budget ratio.
