Cloud Native Solutions

EndurAI specializes in delivering advanced business process automation on-premise, hybrid, or native cloud environments as per customer requirement. We make use of the best of each environment and reduce the limitations with capabilities such as AI Services and AI infrastructure services. Cloud native is a term used to describe container-based environments. Cloud-native technologies are used to develop applications built with services packaged in containers, deployed as microservices, and managed on elastic infrastructure through agile DevOps processes and continuous delivery workflows.

AI Services for Cloud Computing

Even without creating a unique ML model, it is possible to enjoy services that parallel that provided by the AI systems. For instance, text analytics, speech, vision, and machine language translation are accessible to developers. They can simply integrate this into their development projects. Although these services are generic and are not tailored to specific uses, cloud computing vendors are taking steps to ensure that this is constantly improved. Cognitive computing is a model that allows users to provide their personalized data which can be trained to deliver well-defined services. This way, the problem of finding the appropriate algorithm or the correct training model is eliminated.

AI Infrastructure for Cloud Computing

We can generate Machine Learning (ML) models when a large set of data is applied to certain algorithms, and it becomes important to leverage the cloud for this. The models are able to learn from the different patterns which are gleaned from the available data. As we provide more data for this model, the prediction gets better and the accuracy is improved. For instance, for ML models that identify tumors, thousands of radiology reports are used to train the system. This pattern can be used by any industry since it can be customized based on the project needs. The data is the required input and this comes in different forms – raw data, unstructured data, etc.

What is cloud native and what are cloud native applications?

Cloud native is an approach to building and running applications that exploits the advantages of the cloud computing delivery model. When companies build and operate applications using a cloud native architecture, they bring new ideas to market faster and respond sooner to customer demands. While public cloud has affected the thinking about infrastructure investment in virtually every industry, cloud-like delivery isn’t exclusive to public environments. Cloud native development is appropriate for both public and private clouds; it’s about how applications are created and deployed, not where. More important is the ability to offer on-demand access to computing power along with modern data and application services for developers. Cloud native development incorporates the concepts of DevOps, continuous delivery, microservices, and containers.

How do you build cloud native applications?

To build and operate cloud native apps, organizations have to re-think the approach to application delivery and incorporate cloud native architecture principles.

  • DevOps is the collaboration between software developers and IT operations with the goal of delivering high-quality software that solves customer challenges. DevOps creates a culture and an environment where building, testing, and releasing software happens rapidly, frequently, and more consistently.
  • Continuous Delivery, enabled by Agile product development practices, is the process of moving incremental software changes into production constantly through automation. Continuous delivery makes the act of releasing software dull and reliable, so organizations can deliver software more frequently with less risk—and get feedback faster.
  • Microservices is an architectural approach to developing an application as a collection of small services; each service implements business capabilities, runs in its own process, and communicates via HTTP APIs or messaging. Each microservice can be deployed, upgraded, scaled, and restarted independent of other services in the same application, typically as part of an automated system, enabling frequent updates to live applications without impacting customers.
  • Containers offer both efficiency and speed compared with standard virtual machines (VMs). Using operating-system-level virtualization, a single OS instance is dynamically divided among one or more isolated containers, each with a unique writable file system and resource quota. The low overhead of creating and destroying containers combined with the high packing density in a single VM makes containers an ideal compute vehicle for deploying individual microservices.
  • Security threats to enterprise systems and data have never been greater. Cloud native security offers a transformative way to reduce risk in the enterprise based on three principles: repair vulnerable software as soon as updates are available; frequently repave servers and applications from a known-good state; rotate user credentials often.

Why do cloud native applications matter?

Cloud native apps are built and deployed in a rapid cadence by small, dedicated feature teams to a platform that offers easy scale-out and hardware decoupling. This approach provides organizations with greater agility, resilience, and portability across cloud environments.

  • Gain a competitive advantage. Cloud native development means switching from a focus on IT cost savings to seeing the cloud as an engine of business growth. In the age of software, businesses that can quickly build and deliver applications in response to customer needs will achieve enduring success.
  • Enable teams to focus on resilience. When legacy infrastructure fails, services can suffer. In a cloud native world, teams can focus on architecting for resilience. The rapidly expanding cloud native landscape helps developers and architects design systems that stay online regardless of hiccups in the environment.
  • Achieve greater flexibility.Public cloud providers continue to offer impressive services at reasonable cost. But most enterprises aren’t ready to choose just one cloud environment. With a platform that supports cloud native development, enterprises build applications that run on any public or private cloud without modification. Teams retain the ability to run apps and services where it makes the most business sense—while avoiding cloud lock-in.
  • Align operations with business needs.By automating IT operations, enterprises can transform into lean, focused teams aligned to business priorities. This eliminates the risk of failure due to human error as staff focus on automation to replace manual admin tasks. Automated live patching and upgrades at all levels of the stack eliminates downtime and the need for ops experts with ‘hand-me-down’ expertise.
