Cloud Application Development

We have been working in the cloud industry for several years. During all these years, many clients have asked us to migrate their legacy systems to the cloud for the following benefits:
  1. Better agility in handling their IT infrastructure
  2. Cost savings
  3. Increased velocity with respect to system releases
Out of all these reasons, the third one is increasingly desired among businesses of all size. It is understandable; their survival depends on it.
The rise of application development has led companies to work on the strategic significance of the organization. Organizations are trying to stand out via their digital transformation initiatives. This form of transformation is only possible through quick adjustments and changes as they learn more about their customers through data. One of the biggest reasons behind the failure to rapidly adapt to these evolving demands is the use of monolithic architecture.
A monolithic architecture is a traditional model of software architecture, in which an application is created as a single, unified unit. If your company’s application development is dependent on this architecture, you will struggle from the following issues:
  • Monolithic applications have multiple inter-dependencies as there is no physical separation between different components. As a consequence, if one component is disconnected, it may or may not affect others.
  • Scalability is a nightmare in monolithic architectures. Scaling logical parts is tricky in a monolithic application, costing a considerable number of resources, especially memory. Besides, it is likely that scalability problems can cause database-locking risks.
  • Monolithic applications are unsuitable for applications where frequent changes are necessary. For making a minor change, your team will have to rebuild, perform testing, and deploy the application again.

Why CCT’s Cloud Application Development Is Different?

When it comes to cloud application development, conventional rules of application development are broken all the time. Applications can move around failures to scale with shifts in workloads and provide resiliency. An application’s components can be adjusted to boost development and enhance deployment efficiency. However, don’t expect to get these advantages instantly after taking your business processes to the cloud.

Other than fasting provisioning and cost-savings, businesses fail to leverage other cloud benefits. This is happening because they are still using the same application architectures in the cloud they were used in their on-premises architecture. Thus, it comes off as no surprise that they struggle to meet your expectations. If you really want to maximize the cloud advantage, consider reaching out to CCT’s experienced team. We will address your concerns in a jiffy with a microservices architecture.
Developed in Silicon Valley, the hub of tech industry, the microservices architecture has gained a significant amount of appreciation for maximizing the ROIs for organizations that migrated their monolithic architectures to the cloud..
At a cursory glance, microservices architecture can appear similar to the service oriented architecture (SOA), which was widely used in the 2000s. However, microservices are markedly different.
The main idea behind this architecture is to modularize a system by breaking it down in smaller services. Well-defined APIs with narrow scopes are assigned to each of these services. Coupling is drastically minimized and it becomes easier to implement functionalities with modern design principles, particularly the ones like the single responsibility principle (SRP) and separation of concerns (SoC). In a nutshell, Microservices are a solution that addresses a common application development issue: when systems get too complex. To meet this goal, it splits complex systems into several narrowly-focused and independent services, having their own isolated data store and business logic.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Microservice is the breaking up of traditionally tightly coupled application components into small specialized services that communicate through HTTPS REST and HTTPS API interfaces.
Since Microservices are small specialized services, they can be quickly and efficiently rearranged to accommodate future capabilities unknown at the present time.
Microservices are independent and modular which allows for significant flexibility in communications patterns and often prevent cascading failure.
DevOps is the combination of development and operations into a single function of software development and infrastructure management. The main priority of DevOps is the reduction of barriers to speed of delivery.
DevSecOps empowers everyone in the development process using a security focused tool set to address timely security decisions at speed and scale of each development stage. The main priority of DevSecOps is risk reduction through DevOps security accountability and governance.
Security automation in DevSecOps increases speed of code releases while reducing the risk using static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST), and code dependency checking.
High business value is realized from quick and efficient response to market opportunities and challenges, optimization for innovation, and reduction of technical debt all lead to superior competitive advantage.

By implementing an agile microservices architecture, CCT’s highly-skilled team can scale and deploy any service for you. In addition, different teams maintain these modules to boost the overall time-to-market of the system, and we make sure that these services don’t bump into each other. This is why many of our clients, especially SMEs, have adopted this architecture. They have come to realize that it is their only shot at achieving the release velocity, which is required to extend support to their business model.

Once we introduced microservices, your IT team will be pleased to take advantage of its user-friendliness, along with the speed of development that aligns with the rapid growth of your venture.
Now, you can update a subset of functionality with guaranteed isolation, thanks to the independent nature of microservices. In addition, the modular nature takes fault isolation and security to the next level. Hence, if any code is compromised or corrupted, remaining services are safe due to adequate isolation. This prevents the complete application from becoming unavailable, boosting the system’s overall uptime.
There is one more notable difference between microservices and monolithic architectures; their data layer isolated as each service is self-contained .i.e. no data sharing, granting full autonomy to each service. They can have their own load balancer and data store. Isolation is an important part of microservices as various microservices need different storage technology and scaling characteristics. For example, some services may use NoSQL databases, while others can use relationship databases. Designig application with this approach makes teams more scalable during application development – an area where CCT can certainly help you.
In monolithic architecture, it is a routine practice to assemble a large team working on a big chunk of code. If your organization has been working like this, then CCT is here to make a positive change.
We create small and decentralized development teams, where each member is assigned on a separate microservice. This also helps with testing and upgrading, adding functionality in time.
