UDig delivered a functional cloud proof of concept allowing the team to test named containers, use immutable servers for deployment and automate deployment for legacy and cloud infrastructure using Terraform. The solution also allowed for testing of horizontal scaling and demonstration of auto-provisioning methods. This included having datacenter cloud bursting by automating AWS environment provisioning, and scaling container across on premise and cloud nodes. Ultimately, the POC demonstrated the flexibility, scalability and reduction in complexity containers can provide the organization.
Leveraging Agile, the functional POC was delivered in 3 weeks and provided the client the ability to prove out the use of containers, orchestration, scaling, and datacenter cloud bursting.
