Embrace containerized CloudsBrain for Seamless Computing Operations

2020-12-15 : BY CLICK2CLOUD-BLOG

Application development with the advanced cloud technologies and resources has become a cumbersome task due to complex codes, multiple languages, frameworks, discontinuous interfaces, distributed environments and architectures. The use of docker containers eases these complexities and automates your workflow by giving developers the ability to apply smart innovations with their choice of tools and application stacks for their development, speeding up the delivery of enhancements and makes the deployments quick and easy.

CloudsBrain  provide a containerized environment using docker containers to its users for hassle-free SDLC and computing operations.

What is Docker?
Docker is an open-source PaaS that uses OS-level virtualization to build, deploy or run applications in packages called containers. Docker container is a standard unit of software that encapsulates all the components your application needs such as code, libraries, operating system and other engines in an isolated infrastructure. With docker, you can manage your infrastructure in the same way as you manage your applications. They can significantly reduce the runtime of your applications and services due to fast shipping, testing and deployment.

Docker file and Docker image are the two most important components that are used to create containerized CloudsBrain 

Containers isolate software from its surrounding environment and ensures that it works smoothly despite the differences in their instance between development and deployment.
Kubernetes for CloudsBrain


CloudsBrain utilizes Kubernetes which is an extensible, open-source technology that is used to automate deployment, scale declarative configuration and manage containerized applications/services. It has a large, rapidly growing ecosystem. Kubernetes services, support, and tools help to bundle the containers that build up an application into segregated units for smooth and efficient management.
In this container deployment era, Kubernetes provides you with a platform to run your distributed system with no downtime. Since CloudsBrain uses the Kubernetes system it can be scaled easliy without involving any ops team, application enhancements can be delivered consistently and CloudsBrain can be hosted on-premise or on Cloud.
Click2Cloud’s empowered multi-cloud platform i.e. CloudsBrain is heighted over docker containers with the base of infrastructure and host OS to offer smart containerized modules such as 

  • Compute
  • Migration
  • Storage
  • Cost manager
  • Orchestration

Containerized CloudsBrain
Almost, all the services in CloudsBrain are executed with the help of docker containers that are resting inside Pods. These pods are also called as microservices in CloudsBrain which are segregated for the simplicity in their management. In case, if any of these services go down then there is no need to check the entire backend. You can directly check the pod logs and resolve the issue without facing any downtime in your application

Benefits of Using containerized/Dockerized CloudsBrain
Containerized application like CloudsBrain offers significant benefits to development teams to perform their operations seamlessly. Those benefits are listed below:

  1. Portability: Docker encapsulates a package of software in CloudsBrain that is abstracted away from the host operating system so that it can be moved across any platform or cloud to run uniformly and consistently.
  2. Agility: The open-source Docker Engine for running containers started the industry standard for containers with simple development tools and a universal packaging approach that works on both Linux and Windows operating systems. Software developers and testers can use this agile CloudsBrain for faster application development and enhancement.
  3. Speed: Containerized applications are lightweight as they use the same machine’s operating system (OS) kernel and are not bogged down with the extra load. This not only results in higher server efficiencies but also reduces server and licensing costs while speeding up start-times as there is no extra operating system to boot.
  4. Fault isolation: Containerized modules in CloudsBrain is isolated and operates independently. The failure of one container does not affect the continued operation of any other container. Development teams can examine and correct the technical faults within one container without creating any downtime for other containers. Also, the container engine can leverage any OS security isolation techniques—such as SELinux access control—to isolate faults within containers.
  5. Efficiency: Software running in containerized environments shares the machine’s OS kernel, and application layers within a container can be shared across containers. Thus, containers are inherently smaller in capacity than a VM and require less boot time, allowing for more containers to run on the same compute capacity as a single VM. This results in higher server efficiencies, with lesser server and licensing expenditure.
  6. Ease of management: The container orchestration platform in CloudsBrain automates the installation, scaling, and management of containerized workloads and services. CloudsBrain simplifies the management tasks such as scaling containerized apps, rolling out new versions of apps, and providing monitoring, logging and debugging, among other functions
  7. Security: The isolation of applications as container automatically blocks the invasion of malicious code from affecting other containers or the host system. Additionally, security permissions can be defined to automatically block unwanted components from entering containers or limit communications with unnecessary resources.
