Application Platforms

rule

Technology to help accelerate the adoption of the cloud

Application platforms, such as the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and the Pivotal Cloud Foundry, help accelerate the adoption of cloud native principles which will accelerate application deployment, enable faster application iteration and provide a unified experience. These platforms simplify the deploying of application code, automating software release processes, and monitoring your application and infrastructure performance. Additionally, application platforms provide you with an out of the box cloud native experience across multiple environments. Leveraging these technologies, you can extend your applications into the cloud without significantly changing your existing application code base or development procedures and avoid costly refactoring processes.

Use Cases

appplatform_hybrid

Hybrid Architecture

Seamlessly build, deploy, and manage applications across on-premises and cloud environments. Benefit from the scalability, high availability and agility that has made cloud native businesses a success with minimal effort.

appplatform_tools

Accelerated Development

Gain agility by enabling developers to self-serve in a way that provides functional parity between development and production environments. Iterate quickly to give your customers what they want.

appplatform_dev

Unified Experience

Provide a unified experience across every deployment environment. Allow developers and engineers to deploy applications across multiple environments, both on-prem and in the cloud with confidence.

Benefits

appplatform_uparrow

Faster Time to Market

Let AWS take care of undifferentiated heavy lifting. Allow developers to focus on building differentiated products instead of managing commodity application components.

appplatform_gear

Automation

Application platforms automate application builds, deployments, scaling, health management and more leveraging integrated components from Kubernetes.

appplatform_consistency

Consistency

Developers can work in their local test environment and be confident that application behavior will be work the same when deployed to production environments.

appplatform_cost

Cost Savings

Drive operational efficiency with AWS’ economies of scale. Pay only for the services you use with no long term or upfront commitment.
