How database versioning boosts your business growth?
Applications are neither ideal nor perfect. Along with the dynamic implementation environments and rapid technology changes, certain features can become obsolete and some new ones might be needed. Workflows and processes in the application need to be changed. Bugs and vulnerabilities can be reported any time. Competitors may release a new feature that demands you to reciprocate with matching or better feature. The chances are huge for you to initiate, perform and deliver a stable minor or major version. A delay or absence in this can negatively affect the reputation and/or monetary attributes like market performance, profit etc. In these circumstances, it is essential for you to make available for your teams, tools that automates and simplifies processes as much as possible. Applications or services have code and databases are integral parts of any product. A properly version controlled database boosts and simplifies development and production deployment processes. It also helps in critical analysis, comparison and cross review of your application sets. The results give you new insights and directions for a new promising version release and you can focus on your business growth, since everything is automated.Read more
Docker – a Revolutionary Container Platform
Before going into the analysis, let’s have a brief idea about Containers and Docker. A Container is an executable package of software designed to provide an isolated environment for applications to run in a host server. They have all the necessary code, runtime, libraries etc. to provide a safe environment for the application software. Prominent enterprises like Uber, Facebook, Google etc are using Containers in a very high scale. Docker is a software container platform and is used to create container units on host machines. Many such units share the host’s OS, RAM, Processor and other resources. Disk usage is minimized by sharing filesystem layers and common files. Docker containers help in many aspects for Software Lifecycle, starting from development to deployment and implementation. It provides an agile continuous integration platform with isolated units for development teams, with development, test and production environments. It makes a server compatible for a wide variety of software applications that have different dependencies. Docker makes the host platform portable and distributed by virtue of its self sufficient and isolated container feature. All these come along with reduced need of computing power and space, since Docker Containers use the same Kernel in a host, rather than VMs using separate guest OS.Read more
