Reliable, scalable, flexible, but above all infrastructure services with the appropriate operating system or database to the extent of your business.
Platform as a service
About the service
The platform as a service experiences flourishing cloud services both in the world and in our country. It implies the use of the necessary infrastructure with an appropriate operating system or database for the development, testing, production and management of applications. Service is becoming more and more popular because it allows you to achieve high performance in applications without having to build and maintain complex systems for the same purpose with your own resources.
Built on state-of-the-art virtualization, security and mobility technologies, the platform as a service in COMING cloud is a guarantee for the comfortable and reliable operation of your applications and databases.
The most common way of using this service is the development, testing and production of applications. Your applications in the COMING cloud can serve your employees, but if you are dealing with software engineering and your users. By choosing this service, you ensure a high level of security of applications, making it easy to deliver your applications to any device at any time.
Also, the frequent use of this service is like a cloud database.
Whether you use the service for the needs of your application or as a database, and the appropriate operating system and the appropriate database that you need are licensed by Cloud licensing models. You pay the service on a monthly basis depending on the infrastructure capacity and the number and type of licenses in use.
With this service, you can, before investing in equipment and licenses, explore the work of your applications and make a clear estimate of resource requirements. Depending on your business needs and now a realistic estimation of resource requirements, the calculation may be on the side of purchasing your own infrastructure, but it is, however, in most cases on the cloud side.
Safe delivery of applications
Publish your applications on the Internet in a safe way.
About the service
Today’s applications are expected to have a high level of availability, be publicly available on the Internet, and safe from malicious user attacks. COMING, for the purpose of publishing your applications on the Internet, offers a secure delivery of applications, implemented using highly available clusters of specialized devices, accepting end-user queries, performing security checks, and then distributing verified queries to your application servers evenly.
The Safe Delivery Service in COMING Cluster provides:
- Optimizing application performance – included compression and cache functionality, balancing traffic to less-loaded application servers, and the ability to terminate and speed up SSL traffic on the application delivery control applications itself.
- High reliability of the application – applications delivery control devices continually monitor the availability of your application servers, and if they detect the failure of one of the servers, automatically redirect traffic to the remaining active servers.
- Protecting the application against malicious attacks – implemented with Web Application Firewall (WAF) functionality that provides L7 application protection, including detection and mitigation of DDoS attacks, brute force attack, OWASP top 10 security threats and zero-day attacks.
Safe Delivery Service enables easy and end-users to seamlessly scale your application’s capacity by reducing or increasing the number of application servers to which end-user queries are distributed. In this way, the available capacity of the application can be aligned with the expected load at certain time intervals, which is usually not constant throughout the year – e.g. the application can suffer a higher load at the end of the year and less load during the summer vacation season. In this way, the economy is achieved without affecting the performance, as the number of your active application servers is in line with real needs and avoids paying for resources that are not actively used.
Databases as a service
Databases and / or their copies in the cloud.
About the service
Databases are the basic building block of all transactional systems (ERP, POS and others), and their availability and adequate performance are of critical importance for the operation of such systems and the business of the company in general. In the COMING cloud infrastructure, it is possible to hire and use high performance databases and availability at a reasonable price. The core products are Microsoft SQL Server (all editions, from free Express to Enterprise), as well as freely available MySQL and PostgresSQL. For new web applications, they are available on request and the leading NonSQL database.
The database as a service has several of its variants:
- primary database and data backup (full and log backup) in the cloud,
- cloud replica database (with high availability sub-viruses, for example: Microsoft SQL Server Availability Group),
- replica of important tables.
This service can also be a component of more complex services, such as SAP ERP in the cloud (or its recovery as a service) or MS Dynamics NAV / CRM. Regardless of the fact that in the case of these services, the database itself remains less visible to the user, the same level of availability, security and performance as well as independent database services is ensured.
The efficiency of the service is reflected in the ability of multiple users to share the same instance of database servers in a completely secure way, and thus distribute the costs of licenses and monitoring / administration to several of them. Also, this service inherits all the good features of virtual cloud infrastructure both in terms of features and in terms of economy. For example, cloud recovery services (and complex applications) in the cloud are at least 3-4 times cheaper than in their own performance.
Which operating systems are available in COMING cloud?
You can use Linux and Windows operating systems on the COMING cloud infrastructure. It is possible to use any version of the operating system for which the manufacturer provides support.
For what purpose is this service used?
The largest number of users of this service implement, test and use their own applications on the COMING cloud platform. The service is a frequent choice of software engineering companies, and they need a reliable and secure platform through which software delivery can be delivered as an end-user service. Often COMING platform is used as a platform for the database.
On which network layer is it possible to distribute traffic to application servers?
Distribution of traffic to application servers can be done on layer 4 network (by TCP / UDP port) or layer 7 network (application layer, eg at HTTP / HTTPS protocol level).
What is the minimum number of application servers?
The minimum number of application servers is 1, with the service providing only a security feature, but it is recommended to use at least 2 application servers in order to be able to use both automatic load balancing functionality and high availability.
How to monitor the availability of application servers?
The availability of application servers can be monitored in a variety of ways, from simple checking of network access via ping, by checking the possibility of establishing a TCP connection, to checking the level of accessibility at the application level using HTTP / S GET query.
Can you guarantee the performance and availability of databases in the COMING cloud infrastructure?
The user agreement prescribes all basic service quality elements (“SLA”): security (isolation from other users and protection against unauthorized access), performance (for example: SAPS number for SAP services, response time for a certain number of users (for known standard queries / transactions), availability in percent (standard: 99.95%), as well as RPO / RTO parameters for recovery in case of cancellation. The user is additionally protected by penalties that Coming must pay in case they do not satisfy SLA.
What are the options for protecting / recovering data?
Depending on the level of protection chosen by the user, it may have a cloud backup database (mandatory!), A remote copy (in another cloud location), and / or even your own copy from the cloud at its location. In doing so, the privacy of users and data is guaranteed. On request, it is possible to cryptographically protect the data (and the whole database). The user is guaranteed full inviolability of the content and ownership of the data.
Is it possible to check copies of backup data?
Checking the quality of the service and backup and the copy of the data itself can be performed at any time at the request of the user or an authorized auditor. If the database is part of a more complex recovery service for user services in the event of a disaster, then a regular recovery test (with documentation) is provided.
Is it possible to significantly improve the performance of the database in the cloud?
The Coming Cloud infrastructure contains a number of components that are in function of improving and guaranteeing the appropriate (user-agreed) performance. One of these features is a Flash-based data storage system that, at a reasonable cost, provides multiple performance improvements (10X or more). Another service enables cloud-based support (specialized engineers) to optimize the performance of applications and / or databases.
How is this service different from other cloud suppliers?
The basic difference is in detailed, 24 hour monitoring and support by qualified engineers who, of course, rely on automatic cloud infrastructure operations, and are engaged whenever improvements are needed, find and remove bottlenecks, perform service recovery, and what most importantly, allow the user to work reliably, migrate their own solutions to Coming Cloud or from it to another location.
To start using business solutions in COMING cloud, you need access devices (any devices you use in business – desktop, laptops, tablets, mobile devices …) and internet connections.
