Web Services at Scale
We help our clients build reliable, scalable and effective web applications. Working with Spring Boot, Node.js etc, and integrating with SQL, NoSQL and other enterprise systems, Dev9 works closely with clients to provide a custom solution that works for them.
Successful DevOps allows businesses to save time, money, and stress - while still enabling scalability and providing privacy and security. We utilize Puppet, Chef, Docker and more to create working DevOps environments that are value-positive from day one.
Cloud computing costs are like small pebbles. Each individual resource seems financially minute, but add enough together and you’re left with an unruly mountain of cost. Controlling Cloud computing costs is critical to maintaining Cloud infrastructure.
Intershop selected Dev9 for the organization’s unique set of skills and capabilities including Cloud and automation. Furthermore, Dev9 is a fit with Intershop’s quality-first, continuous software delivery methodology. This provides constant business value by making it easy to consume new updates and roll out new features.
Over the last few years, Dev9 has advocated for large, legacy software platforms (monoliths) to be broken up into a series of smaller applications (microservices). Some with monoliths experience agree with our philosophy, while others believe microservices are just hype and keep their monoliths chugging along. With a well-functioning monolith, it is easy to believe that breaking up the legacy application to create microservices presents more obstacles than benefits. As Martin Fowler points out in his microservices article, the jury is still out on whether microservices represent the future. However, it is clear to Dev9 that monoliths do not fit nicely in the current world of flexible infrastructure.
Dev9 kicked off the weekend with a Big Data Hackathon in partnership with T-Mobile and Amazon. At T-Mobile’s Bellevue headquarters, we challenged Pacific Northwest techies of all skill levels to put their creativity, technology and teamwork skills to the test. Together, 120 developers – new and seasoned – created a demo or an app using open source technologies and big data to innovate the mobile customer experience.

In this article, I will highlight key announcements and sessions that my Dev9 colleagues and I attended. The sessions were very well done and brought a lot of depth for people implementing on the GCP platform.
On Tuesday, February 28, 2017, many people found that their smart phone applications were no longer working properly, many web sites were down and the Internet in general just seemed broken. This is what happens when AWS, the largest Cloud provider, experiences a “service disruption.”
Dev9's Director of Cloud Services, Brian Guy, wrote an indepth analysis of the event for Geekwire. In the article, Brian explains what happened and offers possible solutions to helps organizations minimize risks.
How do you enable applications to best use the Cloud? It is true that nearly any application can be moved to the Cloud without much change. This is the premise behind the concept of the “lift & shift.” Moving to the cloud can be the same as moving to any virtualized environment. If the Cloud is just another virtualized environment, there is not much interesting about moving to it.
But...of course, the Cloud is much more than simply another virtual environment.
