Lockdowns, travel bans, working from home, staying away from loved ones and the fear of eating food off the streets, 2020 has been quite challenging so far! During these testing times, technology is among the few things that have thrived.
Enterprises across the world have opened their arms to technology like never before. From pharma industries to production utilities and media houses, industries of all scales are initiating technology transformations. The catch is that the transformations are stressful yet mandatory.
Amidst all this, as a software architect with a decade long experience and founder of a successful start-up accelerator, I kept thinking about the volumes of traffic being generated and how the sudden spikes could crash enterprises. Not being able to rapidly innovate and deliver applications to customers in real-time has been a core challenge for companies of all sizes. To meet current demands, enterprises need agile, flexible, and scalable ecosystems. Connecting the dots, I found the answer in Cloud Native – the open-source framework to accelerate software solutions and speed up the to-market times.
With this as my vision, I approached my colleague, Karl Schubert, a professor of practice and associate director of the data science program at the University of Arkansas. Having worked with Fortune 500 companies, Karl has lead tech transformation during six recessions. During his career spanning 30 years, he has been a key member of the IBM Research team and worked on the original VM, and applied virtualization to the computing ecosystem through companies like IBM, Dell, and several start-ups. Karl has been the thought leader for over a dozen enterprises. He steered them towards virtualization, abstraction, and containerization. From VM to Cloud Native, Karl puts his decades of experience on the front foot to help corporations with their tech transformations.
Over the next few hours, we discussed the feasibility of the idea and its potential to elevate enterprise ecosystems. Our discussion revolved around the need for agility, feasibility, and scalability in the face of crisis. The more we discussed, the more convinced we were that Cloud-Native and Kubernetes were THE SOLUTION; and that is how we signed out a partnership for TYNYBAY INC.
Together, Karl and I have set up TYNYBAY INC, a Cloud Native initiative that helps speed up “automation of deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters”. With my vision and Karl’s expertise in the infrastructure industry, we have come up with a comprehensive framework to help our clients shift to Cloud Native to exploit technology and advance their horizons.
