T-Rex Introduces Cloud to Cloud via Containers (C3)

T-Rex Introduces Cloud to Cloud via Containers (C3)

Date: October 7, 2020

Containerization, Multi-Cloud and portability are fundamental to any successful Cloud migration. As part of the T-Rex SMART™ Framework which we use to modernize and secure IT infrastructure, T-Rex has developed a Cloud to Cloud via Containers (C3) portability strategy.  This strategy leverages containerization within a multi-cloud environment to alleviate Cloud Service Provider (CSP) lock-in and fully integrate DevSecOps with a common platform.

Throughout T-Rex SMART ™, C3 is used to implement a container platform, such as OpenShift in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and then in Azure. We build, secure, deploy and run this container in Amazon and then move the container to run in Azure. A future enhancement will automate the move across CSPs. This demonstrates the viability of using containers to achieve cloud portability. We apply container security following DevSecOps principals and implement Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) container pipelines to provide continuous build and run-time monitoring and scanning.  The diagram below shows how this process works:

T-Rex C3 is beneficial in many ways. It proves that you can use containers in a cloud agnostic fashion. By not using CSP Managed Services, the level of effort required to move containers from Cloud A to Cloud B is reduced. Additionally, C3 reduces program start-up costs with reference documentation and patterns that can be quickly rolled out to new CSP environments, saving time and money.
