By understanding that cloud-based infrastructure should be designed to be flexible and disposable as needed through the use of Infrastructure as Code, we create high-scale, rapid cloud-based infrastructure.
Central to our cloud practice is “process, techniques, and tools.” For Nortal, this means keeping 12-factor applications, continuous delivery, and immutable infrastructure as core principles for cloud-native developments. We design applications to be stateless and immutable, with explicitly defined bound contexts and all dependencies noted—as this is critical in developing ephemeral and dynamic cloud-native applications.
We regularly use carefully curated tools, filling the needs for each major phase in the software development lifecycle. Known for nearly 20 years of experience in implementing continuous delivery, our tools reflect this.
