Squaring the DevOps circle – with containers

As organisations embark on their digital transformation journey, we see an increasing adoption of microservices architectures, with container technology being an excellent way of supporting the delivery of microservices.

Running in parallel, the cultural shift towards more agile development and deployment processes is leading to increased collaboration between Development & Operations, driven by the need to accelerate application delivery with Agile and DevOps processes.

Tier 2 Consulting DevOps

The move to Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) environments is now made easier with container technology, such as Docker and Kubernetes.

As a result, Tier 2 has committed to Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Management technology as our platform of choice and the enabling technology to achieve sustainable CI/CD processes.

OpenShift is infrastructure agnostic and provides a consistent application development and deployment platform. Operations teams work on a scalable, secure, and enterprise-grade application platform with unified container and cloud management capabilities.

Our role is to help organisations successfully implement OpenShift. We can do this in a number of ways:

  • by helping you accelerate application delivery with agile and DevOps methodologies
  • by working with you to define and modernize application architectures capable of running microservices.

Tier 2 Consulting has worked with international organisations for over 15 years, addressing a range software challenges in multiple sectors – including the compliance-driven worlds of finance and pharmaceuticals.

By setting achievable goals we can help you grow the process incrementally: scrum by scrum, sprint by sprint.
