12 Benefits and Challenges of Multi-Cloud Architectures

by Bethany Hill on Snapt Nova • February 19, 2021
Gartner, Forrester, and all the major analysts are tracking a huge increase in interest in multi-cloud. A growing number of CIOs, architects, and IT teams are either considering or rolling out multi-cloud architectures for key applications. This is understandable. No one wants to get locked into a single cloud. Multiple clouds may offer enterprises a better way to deliver applications closer to their customers and end users. Going multi-cloud, however, is a complex decision involving multiple trade-offs that every CIO should consider before launching down that path.

by Bethany Hill on Scalability • August 13, 2020
The pandemic forced rapid scale-up and highlighted design decisions as critical to building an adaptive business. With the global economy suffering the consequences of COVID-19 and national lockdowns, there has been a large focus on cutting costs, reducing staff and stripping back to the bare necessities.

Creating a load balancer for Developers (and why we use our own ADC)

by Iwan Price-Evans on DevOps • June 16, 2020
Developers building business-critical applications need an IT environment that allows them to work quickly and securely. This means having reliable web servers that are always available and protected.

They need their own solutions, and they need them to be tailored to their own needs. When we developed Snapt Nova, we were our first customer. Our development team use Nova themselves (the process known as "dogfooding") to provide load balancing for Nova development and deployment. This post is about what developers need, how the right load balancer or application delivery controller (ADC) can support and empower developers, and why Nova might be the best load balancer for developers – or, at least, why our own developers seem to think it is.
