Benefits of DCHQ.in Hosted PaaS
Hosted by India’s tier-4 datacenter CtrlS, DCHQ.in Hosted PaaS is the only secure and local cloud container-based application platform that delivers optimized network latency while securing the data within Indian borders.
Unlike many public PaaS offerings, DCHQ.in Hosted PaaS is flexible and scalable – allowing development teams to register their local machines or use cloud providers they're already using, including DigitalOcean, Amazon Web Services, Rackspace, Microsoft Azure, IBM SoftLayer and Google Compute Engine. Using an agent-based architecture, DCHQ.in Hosted PaaS automates the provisioning and auto-scaling of virtual infrastructure with out-of-box support for software-defined networking.
The solution offers intuitive and extensible application modeling as well as free templates for Java, Ruby, Python and PHP developers to quickly stand up complex application stacks.
Integrations with GitHub and Jenkins facilitate continuous delivery via supported Docker repositories like Docker Hub, Quay and Red Hat Container Registry. Users can automate the provisioning of updated application stacks at a scheduled frequency or whenever a code commit is made.
Continuous Delivery for Docker Java Applications
For developers wishing to follow the “immutable” containers model by rebuilding Docker images containing the application code and spinning up new containers with every application update, DCHQ provides an automated build feature that allows developers to automatically create Docker images from Dockerfiles or GitHub projects containing Dockerfiles.
However many Java developers may wish to update the running application server containers with the latest Java WAR file instead. For that, DCHQ facilitates a continuous delivery workflow with Jenkins to refresh the Java WAR file of a running application without disrupting the existing dependencies and integrations.
After an application is provisioned, day-2 operations like backup, scale in/out, log analysis, and application updates allow developers to speed up application development without accessing the underlying host. Developers can monitor the performance of running containers and the underlying hosts in order to correlate issues to application changes or build deployments. Notifications and alerts warn when a host or container is down or when the CPU/memory utilization of either the host or the running container is above a defined threshold.
