CLOUD COMPUTING

Spathe Systems will help you modernize your organization to a Cloud Computing environment. We will bring our experience transforming DOD clients like yourself by guiding you through all phases of the transition including assessment of your current environment, recommend solutions with IAAS industry leaders, implementing the solutions, assessing your current application catalog and identifying those that could modernize to a container environment, and modernizing the applications.  Spathe Systems has direct relationships with Amazon, Microsoft, Pivotal, IBM, Google, Red Hat and various other Cloud services and technology providers, and these relationships ensure that SPATHE is situated to provide you with the highest level of support.  Spathe can leverage our cloud experience to assist with completing the following:

  • Develop a best practice prioritization criterion for application assessments and obtain government approval of the criteria.
  • Assess applications and their associated data stores in government designated priority order and determine the modernization requirements for each application. These requirements may include rehosting on IaaS, refactoring for PaaS, revising for IaaS or PaaS, rebuilding on PaaS, or replacing with SaaS based on cost, schedule and/or performance factors.
  • Collaborate with application developers, functional leads and program offices to obtain information on application programming language, functions, programming Interfaces (APIs), server-client relationships, data structure, system dependencies, and other data points as needed to complete the assessments.
  • Identify dependencies required for modernizing applications to operate on a private cloud.
  • Identify standards for how applications are to be developed in accordance with industry best practices for cloud security.
  • Upon request, provide guidance and assistance to local developers who are refactoring, revising, or rebuilding their applications and/or performing application testing or validation steps prior to delivering containerized applications for operation on the private cloud.
