Innovate at the Speed of the Market with Instatech Serverless Computing Services
Empower your team to benefit from serverless architecture’s cost, efficiency and scalability gains for greater global reach and customer satisfaction. Building on technologies like VMs and containers, serverless computing abstracts yet another layer of updates, management and machine resource allocation away from the IT department, saving valuable time for strategic initiatives rather than operational tasks.
Yet, serverless is not a one-size-fits-all solution; it is best reserved for those particular use cases that will benefit from features like reusable functions and independence from back-end configurations. Moreover, as the serverless landscape continues to quickly change with cloud providers adding new services and functionality at a rapid rate, enterprises are often left with a need for in-house skills that can rapidly assimilate new technology as it is announced.
Having an experienced guide who can lead your team through the ins-and-outs of building a solid serverless architecture that will stand the test of time is essential to effectively implementing serverless in a way that maximizes its benefits.
The serverless Sherpas at Instatech help enterprises take advantage of serverless computing by:
Identify Best Practice Use Cases
Serverless is not an all-in proposition; teams benefit from selectively choosing proofs of concept to test serverless in their environment. Instatech IT Strategy services help enterprises identify and prioritize best-fit serverless projects and/or workloads from the IT roadmap.
Build Concrete Serverless Architectures
Whether you are just beginning your journey to the cloud and need help with cloud migration to take advantage of serverless computing or have an existing cloud environment and need assistance taking the next step, the Instatech services team can help you build a solid serverless foundation with services like Knative, AWS Lambda, the right storage solutions and more.
Grow In-House Capabilities with Instatech Knowledge Transfer
Our world-class knowledge transfer sessions ensure your team knows the ins-and-outs of managing and extending the Instatech -built serverless solution. Working hand-in-hand with your team, the Instatech serverless consulting group mentors throughout the project, leaving you with confident, skilled employees.
Deploying Serverless Frameworks
At Instatech , we’ve created a serverless framework using AWS SAM and AWS CloudFormation templates that define serverless resources with ease, neatly packaging serverless apps and deploying them with CloudFormation. With AWS SAM, we’ve architected an end to end workflow for deploying AWS serverless applications using AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CloudFormation.
Function as a Service (FaaS)
Serverless computing expedites application development through FaaS which is what allows developers to execute code separate from the server infrastructure. FaaS allows developers to write and deploy code without worrying about building and maintaining the infrastructure to support it, resulting in more time on code through-put and less time on maintenance activities. Instatech uses tools like AWS Lambda serverless for FaaS activities, which allows our customers to focus on business logic, rather than server operations.
Low Code and No Code
While distinct from serverless, low code and no code look to achieve a similar goal, to accelerate development within the organization in order to better serve internal and external customers and increase business competitiveness. Learn more about the benefits and differences in our blog analysis.
AWS Lambda Example
For a Fortune 500 manufacturer, we built a serverless audit and notification system to alert operations and information security to known issues surfacing across its more than 50 AWS accounts. Using tools like AWS Lambda, AWS CloudFormation, and AWS CodePipeline, the serverless solution is both low maintenance and extensible so that new rules and new AWS accounts can be easily added.
Migrating to Serverless
Serverless is an inherently cloud-based environment. As a result, traditional, legacy code that sits on servers today will need to first move to the cloud and to containers. From here, some organizations may choose to turn their monolithic apps into smaller services, adopting a microservices architecture, with serverless as the next natural step in the progression. Instatech has deep experience migrating a wide variety of workloads to the cloud, including refactoring to take advantage of cloud services and benefits. In addition, our IT Strategy Services help teams identify and prioritize an IT roadmap tailored to your business needs.
New Applications in Serverless
Instatech helps you make the business case and technology decisions necessary to determine which new applications are well-suited for a serverless approach. For example, serverless is a pay as you go model which could make good financial sense. But, like all things pay as you go, there’s a point in time where applications may have to run 24X7 and therefore the pay as you go economics may not pencil out.
