We build the next-gen datacenters that allow our customers to benefit enormously from IT, in terms of costs, speed and agility. We love to destroy legacy IT and to replace it with scalable, cost-effective, but also simple platforms. Xebia started its Cargonauts label in 2015 to fully embrace "new IT" from a datacenter automation perspective. Our strive for authority in this domain stimulates to continuously build technical leadership, share our knowledge and expertise in datacenter automation, and to "automate everything" at our various customers. Because we can. And doing this jointly with friends from Google, Docker and HashiCorp makes it even more rewarding.
How do you provide a reliable healthcare system whilst also being able to change rapidly and extend your services? For a large customer in the healthcare domain we built a system which runs with zero downtime. Our Docker microservices are running on a high available platform, orchestrated and provisioned by Ansible. Using technology like Docker and Ansible we were able to provide a system which helps people get the care they deserve. Creating a new environment has become easy and efficient, allowing DevOps teams to experiment more easily.
A large customer in the transport domain needed a state-of-the-art platform for fast and elastic delivery of their apps/api's/micro-services. The platform needs to support a fairly spiky load for i.e. Track & Trace information. The stack uses Mesosphere and Marathhon and is built upon AWS and provisioned with Ansible. We also implemented a continuous delivery pipeline which allows us to build, test, package and deploy the apps. The main part of the stack is open source and available on github
For a large retailer we built one of the leading e-commerce platforms in The Netherlands. In 2014 this organization decided that they needed a new platform which can provide more flexibility and scalability. Our solution is based on microservices written in Scala/Akka and a Cassandra backend. The microservices run in Docker and are deployed on Mesos/Marathon. Consul is a key component in providing service discovery to the platform. The platform is not only self-healing but also scalable, and is currently handling purchase orders every day.
