Cloudway is a Belgian cloud native company, specialised in software development combined with the optimal use of managed services delivered by cloud providers. This approach allows us to deliver successful projects both for other start-ups and larger companies in all different kinds of sectors.
We focus on qualitative software development powered by Java and Node.js programming environments. Furthermore, we use continuous integration and deployment to finally arrive on a scalable and highly available platform.
Our projects involve the use of cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure. More generic solutions based on Docker and Kubernetes are also part of our expertise. IOT, Serverless and streaming data solutions are other key capabilities.
Cloud native architecture
In a joint effort between you and us we design a cloud native application architecture. We will cover both the functional and non functional requirements ending up with a scalable, reliable and fit for purpose architecture.
In order to limit the operational maintenance and regulatory responsability we design an architecture with high level managed services often combined with PAAS or SAAS components.
Financially you will benefit from a pay-per-use and opex cost model.
Cloud native development
Ready for the next step after architectural decisions? Our experts in both software development and cloud capabilities will deliver the projects according to industry best practices. We can also assist your existing development team with training and familiarisation to cloud native development.
Using microservices will provide the necessary abstraction at the right levels to facilitate long term usage of the software solution. Combining the scaling advantages of microservices with cloud native services makes sure that the deployment environments are always right-sized. Interfacing is performed using customer facing and internal API gateways.
One popular way of deploying your applications is the use of containers. Together with our partners we set up a future proof managed container infrastructure using Kubernetes or Amazon Elastic Container Service.
Continuous integration, deployment and monitoring will fit the container paradigm.
Going serverless means focusing on the functional requirements, the things that matter for you and your users.
Using serverless technology you will make sure that the operational responsibilities are lowered even further to just the application level. Scaling becomes transparent, requiring no more setup and follow up. The FAAS solutions, Function as a service, such as AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions and Azure Functions are the backbone of serverless compute.
The cost model in a serverless solution becomes purely pay per use, scaling from a start up brainchild to high throughput applications.
Do you have an existing application or full blown application stack? Contact us for the benefits that cloud native solutions can bring for you in that case. Convinced that you want to pilot a migration or a new project into the cloud? We can setup and execute a pilot cloud project together with you.
