“Our Core Competencies Are”

  • Serverless
  • Cloud Security
  • Automation
  • Migration
  • DevOps
A serverless architecture is a way to build and run applications and services without having to manage infrastructure. Your application still runs on servers, but all the server management is done by AWS. You do not need to provision, scale, and maintain servers to run your applications, databases, and storage systems.

Services Offered
  • Using Lambda, run your code without provisioning or managing servers
  • Using S3, store and retrieve any amount of data, anytime, anywhere on the web.
  • Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. You can scale up or scale down your tables’ throughput capacity without downtime or performance degradation.
  • Using Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) that is a web service which lets you coordinate and manage the delivery or sending of messages to subscribing endpoints or clients.
Key Features:
  • Platform independent: We can use any third party libraries and packages or any code as a lambda layer to manage and share them easily across multiple functions.
  • Built-in fault tolerance: AWS lambda maintains compute capacity across multiple AZs in each region to protect your code against individual machine or data center facility failures, there are no maintenance windows or scheduled downtimes.
  • Storage Classes: Amazon S3, you can store data across a range of different storage classes, which moves data one storage class to another for cost savings.
  • Auto Scaling: DynamoDB scales tables to adjust for capacity and maintains performance with zero administration.
  • Message Encryption: Amazon SNS provides encrypted topics to protect your messages from unauthorized and anonymous access.
Benefits:
  • No need to provision or maintain any servers.
  • Flexible scaling
  • Advantage of Pay-as-You-Go
  • Automated high availability
AWS provides several security capabilities and services to increase privacy and control network access. These include: Network firewalls built into Amazon VPC, and web application firewall capabilities in AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall), which lets you create private networks, and control access to your instances and applications.
An advantage of the AWS cloud is that it allows you to scale and innovate, while maintaining a secure environment. You only pay for the services you use.you can have the security you need, without the upfront expenses, and at a lower cost than in an on-premises environment.

Services Offered:
  • Identity and Access Management (IAM)
  • Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs)
  • Data Encryption
  • Direct Connect
  • AWS Cloud Trail
  • Trusted Advisor
Key Features:
  • Network firewalls built into Amazon VPC, and web application firewall capabilities in AWS WAF let you create private networks, and control access to your instances and applications
  • Customer-controlled encryption in transit with TLS across all services
  • Connectivity options that enable private, or dedicated, connections from your office or on-premises environment
  • Automatic encryption of all traffic on the AWS global and regional networks between AWS secured facilities
Benefits:
  • No need to provision or maintain any servers.
  • Flexible scaling
  • Advantage of Pay-as-You-Go
  • Automated high availability
Automation is a broad term that refers to the processes and tools an organization uses to reduce the manual efforts associated with provisioning and managing cloud computing workloads. IT teams can apply cloud automation to private, public and hybrid cloud environments. automate your IT and run scheduled tasks with high availability. It allows you to easily automate your IT processes so you can focus on improving your business strategy.

Services Offered:
  • AWS CloudFormation: AWS CloudFormation is a service that helps you model and set up your Amazon Web Services resources so that you can spend less time managing those resources and more time focusing on your applications that run in AWS.
  • Terraform: Terraform is a free and third-party tool, it allows you to create, manage, and update your infrastructure in a safe and efficient manner. Terraform can manage includes low-level components such as compute instances, storage, and networking, as well as high-level components such as DNS entries, SaaS features.
    The configuration file described in Terraform can create a single application or the entire data center. Terraform even generates an execution plan before creating the actual infrastructure and configuration changes. Terraform is capable of updating the infrastructure with the new changes made to it.
Key Features:
  • Safety Controls: Specify the CloudWatch alarm that CloudFormation should monitor during the stack creation and update process. If any of the alarms are breached, CloudFormation rolls back the entire stack operation to a previous deployed state.
  • Preview Changes to your Environment: AWS CloudFormation makes the changes to your stack.
  • Dependency Management:No need to worry about specifying the order in which resource are created, updated, or deleted. CloudFormation determines the correct sequence of actions to use for each resource when performing stack operations.
  • Infrastructure as a code: We can use code to provision and deploy servers and applications.
  • Change Automation: Complex change sets can be applied to your infrastructure with minimal human interaction
Benefits:
  • Agility and business scalability
  • Simplifying business process
  • Speed Management and Deployment
  • Cost Reductions
Along with the selection of applications to be moved to cloud, establishing the right deployment topology and architecture is key to the migration process. Ensuring smooth migration to cloud, without compromising on the performance of an application, must be an important consideration in the migration process.

At Kapstone, we provide enterprises with best-in-the-class and flexible solutions through our comprehensive cloud services, frameworks and tools for migration.

We help clients move virtual and physical assets on to the cloud as well as cloud to cloud. Through our cutting-edge offerings, our clients can save the time & money by automating migration process and not rebuilding applications on the cloud. While maintaining security of our client’s business, our teams of dedicated SME’s assist lift server workloads directly from the existing environments and deploy thoes workloads into a new environment.

Services Offered

  • Reduces time for business case and cloud cost analysis
  • What-if scenario modeling allows you to explore different models, costs and timescales
DevOps focuses on automating everything that allows for small chunks of code to be written,tested,monitored and deploy in hours.This is from writing large chunks of codes that takes weeks to deploy.

As smaller to mid-size enterprises continue to integrate DevOps strategies into their daily workloads, they can turn to certain technologies to propel (boost) a successful adoption.

Role of AWS in DevOps: AWS Developer is responsible for designing, deploying, and developing cloud applications on the platform. Design, manage, and maintain tools to automate operational processes.

Services Offered:
  • Continuous Integration: Developers regularly merge their code changes into a central repository, after which automated builds and tests are run
  • Continuous delivery: Is a software development practice where code changes are automatically prepared for a release to production.
  • Microservices: The microservices architecture is a design approach to build a single application as a set of small services. Each service runs in its own process and communicates with other services through a well-defined interface using a lightweight mechanism, typically an HTTP-based application programming interface (API).
  • Infrastructure as Code: Infrastructure is provisioned and managed using code and software development techniques, such as version control and continuous integration.
Key Features:
  • Provides Collaboration: collaboration between product managers, developers, and operations professionals.
  • Continuous Build: Code Build is a fully managed build service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces software packages that are ready to deploy.
  • Continuous Testing and Continuous Delivery.
Benefits:
  • Scalability: Enabling DevOps to support a single instance or quickly and easily expand to thousands of instances. This allows the proper resources to be allocated.
  • Automation: Code Deploy is a service that makes it easy to automate manual tasks, testing workflows, and even deployments.
  • Scaling up and down is suddenly no longer a manual, time-consuming affair when there’s a massive traffic spike.
