eGlobalTech was awarded a contract by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Office of Infrastructure, Engineering and Operations under the Office of the Chief Information Officer, to advance containerization for USPTO’s IT West Lab Environment.

eGlobalTech applied its deep expertise in cloud deployment automation using a wide array of open-source containerization and orchestration technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes to help the USPTO achieve a cloud smart strategy.

Containers will provide the ability for the USPTO to build features and services consistently across the USPTO OCIO. This will achieve cost savings because consistent environments are easy to maintain, containers facilitate faster software delivery, and containers share and use resources more efficiently, reducing the dependency on virtual machines. These benefits are all the result of implementing a cloud smart strategy.

Migrating and Securing a Geospatial System to the Cloud

THE NEED

A client had a complex geospatial system prototype composed of Microsoft and open source applications with growing number of ArcGIS services. This prototype was used in a production capacity and encountered frequent outages and performance issues.  The need was to migrate this cloud environment to a more stable infrastructure, engineer it for production capacity, and achieve the required level of security compliance.

OUR SOLUTION

We applied our DevOps Factory® framework and automation tools to re-engineer the target architecture and automate the end to end cloud migration process onto our managed AWS infrastructure. Leveraging Cloudamatic ®, our open source full-stack automation tool, we automated the provisioning of hardened instances, installation and configuration of applications, networking and security, and orchestration of the complete cloud environments – all performed through a single click of a button. Post migration, we instrumented a Continuous Delivery pipeline empowering development teams to onboard new applications and to rapidly push new code to production.

THE RESULT

  • Migrated and operationalized the geospatial cloud ecosystem to AWS within 3 months
  • Achieved true high availability, reliability, and consistent optimal performance
  • Seamlessly supported 400+% growth of geospatial services
  • On-boarded over a dozen complex applications and systems
  • Achieved 99.99% operational availability
