Startup Mentoring Program

The mentoring program is aimed at organizations that are just starting their adventure with the cloud. There are many vendors on the market. Each promotes itself as the largest, the most reliable and the safest, but only by working with each of them can you tell which one is for whom and at what stage of development. Having been on the market for over eight years, we have had the opportunity to work with most of them, so you do not have to go this route alone – we can support you.

Choosing among cloud providers

Selecting a service provider is crucial for your business’s functioning. If your company provides a streaming service and generates terabytes of data daily, choosing a provider that charges high for outgoing traffic may make the entire business unprofitable. On the other hand, if you expect fixed costs, the chances are on-prem is for you.

Working with the cloud provider

The way you work with a service provider is also essential. It is worth considering whether we want to stay with the service provider permanently or easily migrate between them. This is called a vendor lock-in issue; if we underestimate this common problem, future migration may be difficult or even impossible.

GitOps methodology

This approach assumes that Git repositories are the single source of truth. In other words, the resources we create and the procedures we run are described in Infrastructure as Code (IaC) code, and no additional human intervention is required. Because everything is in the code, you are not threatened by the outflow of know-how.

Cost tracking

Cost control is vital in running any organisation. When you receive a collective invoice at the end of the month, you cannot say which team generated which costs. This knowledge may even be necessary for you if you re-invoice these costs to your clients.

Resource usage

This is a common problem for many organisations, where cloud resources are not used optimally or even wasted when teams abandon environments. The result is a cost increase that grows exponentially if not detected earlier.

Disaster recovery (DR)

Many believe that the cloud itself will protect us from failures. The services will run continuously, and there is no need to worry about downtime. However, the truth is you must take care of our safety ourselves by creating and periodically testing recovery procedures.
