As a high-tech consulting company that gives clients a competitive edge through better use of their data, Servian needed a continuous software integration and deployment framework for developing today’s cloud-based applications. The VMware Photon Platform lets Servian build cloud-native applications quickly and efficiently, and move them easily to different environments at every step—from initial design on developers’ laptops through production deployments.
The Intelligent Profiler app from Servian is an online employee recruitment tool that analyzes text and generates psychometric evaluations using natural language processing. Servian developed it with IBM Watson Personality Insights, but wanted to decouple it from IBM’s preferred infrastructure so it could function properly using any public cloud provider. VMware vSphere Integrated Containers let Servian developers containerize the application platform and its dependencies, meaning the app can run side-by-side with traditional applications on a common platform.
Containers help Servian develop software that runs reliably when moved from one computing environment to another, like from development to production. Partnering with VMware gives Servian developers the freedom to experiment with the latest tools without sacrificing security, robustness, and predictability. VMware vSphere supports the security, isolation, and management benefits of virtual machines and the VMware Photon Platform lets Servian quickly deploy lightweight Docker containers on any cloud platform, including open source and vCloud Air.
"The new world order is embracing more lightweight versions of virtual machines’ containers. You’ve got the fantastic innovation that’s happening while having the backing of the world’s leading organization for virtualization."
VMware Photon Platform is a container-optimized cloud platform which delivers on-demand tools and services for developers to build, test, and run modern applications while enabling IT to retain security, control and performance of data center infrastructure.
vSphere Integrated Containers provides critical enterprise container infrastructure to help IT Ops run both traditional and containerized applications side-by-side on a common platform.
