Our Expertise

HashedIn’s managed containerization services leverage existing standard Kubernetes cluster deployment templates and solutions that can accelerate the organisation’s containerization services adoption. Our containerization services help maintain high-end security, reliability, and scalability. The containerization in-house certified Kubernetes administrators have developed a solution suite consisting of HiDock, Kube-it-out, and KubeIn solutions that help your organization automate containerization migration from VM based to the container. These solutions make it easier to build integrations for applications that operate between on-premises and on various cloud environments. Also, the in-house expertise helps us deliver managed Kubernetes services at fixed cost and with more efficiency.

  • Applicable for both on-premise or managed Kubernetes setup
  • Handling compliances like FedRamp or GDPR or HIPAA

HashedIn’s managed containerization services offer a variety of price models based on the requirements for both Kubernetes and Docker deployments. Typically, it is a factor of a number of services, nodes, and governance(logging, monitoring, auditing, security, and other compliances) requirements. HashedIn’s managed containerization services enable an organization to decouple their complex monolithic or microservice architecture into service-based containers and then deploy them into platforms/servers of their requirements. As part of our packaged services, we give free 8 hour proof of concept Dockerization of your non-production services and provide operational support for 3 months after KPIs are met.

Our Solutions

HiDock

HiDock takes care of converting a standalone application, e.g. WordPress into a docker image and pushes to ECR. HiDock facilitates and helps reduce containerization time to minutes, containerizes at scale, supports Amazon Linux and a majority of other Linux Distros, and provides out of the box support for AWS ECR, ECS, and EKS.

KubeIn

KubeIn helps build a Docker image, push the image to the Docker repository, and finally deploy it into a self-managed Kubernetes cluster, all without the intervention of the operations team. This process also facilitates and helps deploy MVP or a Proof of Concept or bootstrapping an application over EKS. KubeIn takes a git repo with Dockerfile as input and generates an application URL as an output.

Kube-it-out

Kube-it-out avoids manual interventions in AWS EKS deployments through automation. It does through a set of scripts that allow for the templatization of manifest files. The code needs to be uploaded with prerequisites and dockerfile, the solution we deploy the code in an EKS within a newly created VPC. Kube-it-out helps templatize EKS deployments fully, no requirements to acquire or learn new tools, controls costs and possesses AWS Native Security.

FAQs

Containers are lightweight, self-sufficient, unit of software which contains code and its dependencies. That unit can run the code in any environment, without needing any external dependencies to be installed.
There are several practical benefits of containers but the two main ones are- a. Better resource utilisation and thus hardware cost savings. b. Portability with consistency ensures that even if one takes that single unit and runs it on any development or production environment, it would behave the same.
Fundamentally both are the same concepts, and allow independent runtimes for your applications. But the difference lies in their implementation. Virtual Machines(VMs) are basically isolation of runtimes at hardware level. Containers do this isolation at application level. Each VM installs its own copy of the whole OS on a host machine, but containers isolate runtimes using cgroups (isolates CPU, RAM, etc.) and namespaces (allows access to network, storage, host, etc.).
Docker is the leading container runtime with ~80% market share. Others are Mesos, containerd, CoreOS rkt etc. Each OS distribution comes with their own implementation of containerization.
Docker command utility creates a separate cgroup and namespace inside the kernel whenever it runs. That means a particular process can have its own pseudo-filesystem, process hierarchy and logically separate access to system resources like RAM, CPU, system files, etc. Docker runtime adds all requirements into the new cgroup and namespace from Dockerfile. This way it behaves in an independent unit of software.
Kubernetes is an orchestrator for containers. It supports various container technologies like docker and containerd. These work for complex container based apps, where services stack like port management, IP exposure, load balancing, networking, healthchecks, etc. are provided by Kubernetes for supported container runtimes like Dockers.
For complex docker based applications, you need an orchestrator like Kubernetes to manage various deployments, auto-healing, container scaling, replication, load balancing amongst replicas, networking amongst multiple containerized services and health checks of all. All these are done by Kubernetes, as an orchestrator.
Horizontal Pod Auto-scaling(HPA) is a feature in K8s that increases the number of pods based on certain metrics (CPU, memory, custom metrics, etc.) every 30 seconds, or based on API triggers. Vertical Pod Scaling(VPA) is also supported in some implementations of K8s but cannot be used with HPA.
Apart from pods auto-scaling, Kubernetes also allows ClusterScaling service which adds another node to your cluster. This is not the same as cloud-based auto-scaling and both work at different layers of scaling. Cluster autoscaling gets triggered only when K8s scheduler is not able honour HPA or VPA requests, and those requests are in pending state. CA is not triggered by any metric but only when the scheduler has any HPA/VPA request in pending for more than 10 mins.
Yes. Various managed K8s servers provide simple methods of updating. Tools like Kubeadm also provide commands to update. An important point to note is not to upgrade more than one minor version, and go step by step.
As a containerization service provider, HashedIn provides outcome-based managed container services that can help organizations in their containerization deployment. These managed containerization services offer Docker migration, Kubernetes migration, and Kubernetes cluster deployment at a fixed cost, with efficiency. It helps organizations reduce operational risks while migrating to Docker Containerization or Kubernetes container orchestration.
HashedIn's managed Kubernetes services have existing standard Kubernetes cluster deployment templates and solutions that can accelerate an organization’s containerization services adoption. Our expertise and in-house team of Certified Kubernetes Administrators help deliver Kubernetes managed Services at fixed cost and timeline-based engagement.
