Web-Scale IT With OS Technology

According to Gartner, "Web-Scale IT is a pattern of global-class computing that delivers the capabilities of large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT setting. More organizations will begin thinking, acting and building applications and infrastructure like Web giants such as Amazon, Google and Facebook. Web-Scale IT does not happen immediately, but will evolve over time as commercial hardware platforms embrace the new models and cloud-optimized and software-defined approaches reach mainstream. The first step toward the Web-Scale IT future for many organizations should be DevOps — bringing development and operations together in a coordinated way to drive rapid, continuous incremental development of applications and services".

Web-Scale IT is about Speed and Agility at Scale

Platforms which support Web-Scale IT models are built on top of 3 principles:

  • Speed
  • Agility
  • Scale

At CLOUDSSKY we've been focused on these 3 principles to deliver our scalable content management solutions based on open source technologies to large enterprises for years, even before the "The Cloud" was born.

Web-Scale IT and Open Source Technology

We believe Web-Scale IT can be delivered only through open source technology and the cloud ecosystem at the highest speed and agility at scale. In the last decade all big players in the IT world are embracing the open source technology to deliver high quality software and services. In 2010 NASA and Rackspace decided to open source their cloud computing developments through the OpenStack project to the IT world. Now only after 4 years OpenStack has become the largest and the most popular open source project in the world.

Web-Scale IT With OpenStack and Docker

We believe OpenStack and Docker with their ecosystems will play a huge role how IT services are delivered through the Web-Scale IT models and because Web-Sacle IT needs proper development and delivery models, we believe Docker On OpenStack can help any kind of organizations to achieve and implement the pronciples of Web-Scale IT at scale!
