Single Cloud Clustering


An environment is a network of interconnected servers with access to the same set of settings and resources such as registry, databases, network, infrastructure ...

A single cloud clustering environment offers the ability to create and operate on a clustered infrastructure using multiple technologies ( virtual machines or containers ) but limited to the same infra provider.

This environment offers tons of features to deploy your code in high availability mode (multiple instances), turn on auto-scaling, monitor metrics and analytics, and conduct several IT operations.

The Single Cloud Clustering Environment is suitable for QA and production purposes as it is designed to help you scale based on your need to handle traffic as it varies.

The environment also supplies you with tools that automate deployment and orchestration on multiple technologies and turn on Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery speeding up applying updates on already deployed components.

SOAJS allows you to can create multiple single cloud clustering environments for different products and provides you with all the tools you need to manage, orchestrate and operate in these environments.

Features & Benefits

This type of environments requires you connect with cloud providers to setup a cluster infrastructure that it will use to assist you in deploying source code and resources.

The SOAJS Console provides support to link and use multiple cloud providers and has a wide variety of templates and recipes that you can leverage to create and use a single cloud clustering environment.

SOAJS Console is also equipped with advanced and adaptable wizards that facilitate provisioning infrastructure for environments and deploying sourced code and resources in them.

Unlike the Development Environment, engineers do not need to manually turn on and off microservices, they can use the SOAJS Console to automate all deployments as well as applying later on updates.

The features of a Single Cloud Clustering Environment are classified under 4 products that all together form the SOAJS Suite:

Creating and Operating in a Single Cloud Clustering Environment

The following elaborate how to provision, deploy and operate in a Single Cloud Clustering Environment with reference to the features SOAJS offers in its suite for cloud orchestration and high availability.
