Our Cloud Orchestration services are designed to architect and implement automated infrastructure management practices from server provisioning to scripted event-based responses and repeatable deployments.

Through advanced automation techniques, we’re able to eliminate manual steps, speed up app releases, increase deployment consistency, reduce maintenance and overall improve the reliability of your infrastructure.

Our Cloud expertise runs deep

We can help with:

Designing Cloud Infrastructure

Your Six Feet Up team will start by developing architecture diagrams of the proposed system. The setup may include load balancers, a file storage solution, a caching system, a content delivery network (CDN) service as well as backups. If a high availability setup is required, then a failover mechanism may also be architected.

Design steps:

  • Run a performance analysis
  • Identify your requirements and constraints
  • Develop a cloud architecture based on your goals (performance, high availability, cost savings, etc.)

Building Cloud Infrastructure

  • Choose between AWS, Azure, Digital Ocean, a private cloud, etc.
  • Select the appropriate OS, load balancer, and other infrastructure pieces
  • Develop a security threat model

Automating Infrastructure Provisioning

  • Spin up hundreds of servers at once with the same configurations using Saltstack
  • Get the same dependencies installed on the machines each time
  • Eliminate error-prone hand-crafted hardware configurations, from VPC to networking to firewalls, subnets, VLANs, load balancers, security groups, internet gateways, EC2 instances, content distribution network (CDN), etc.
  • Make sure the same libraries (e.g. image conversion or HTML to plain text) are always available

Automating Infrastructure Management

  • Leverage public clouds elasticity tools to easily and effortlessly scale horizontally
  • Easily add and remove app servers, web servers or caching servers to your load balancer
  • Connect multiple servers to the same database
  • Share blob storage across various instances
  • Simplify the management of relational database services, load balancers, Cloudfront CDN, etc.
  • Automate replication via RDS, database backups, snapshots and snapshot cleanups
  • Specify Access Control Lists (ACLs)
  • Ensure compliance of each piece of the infrastructure
  • Eliminate server upgrades altogether
  • Run queries across your infrastructure to find out if the servers are healthy
  • Get a scripted inventory of servers, CPU, RAM, etc.

Scripting Repeatable Code Deployments

  • Eliminate manual release steps
  • Release apps into multiple regions on Amazon, or to multiple Cloud providers
  • Roll out continuous deployment
  • Automate backups before releases for easy rollback
