Getting an application in the cloud is a complex process of setting up and maintaining servers. Moreover, due to the globalization of e-commerce and real-time information sharing, it has become real craftsmanship to meet the current hosting standards. Smoothy relieves software developers of this job, by providing a uniform interface that helps them deploy any application stack without the need of any specific expertise.
Whether software developers want to deploy a monolith PHP application, or a bunch of Java Spring or Django microservices, Docker is their way to go. Docker containers allow them to package up their application with all of its dependencies and configuration, and deploy it as one complete package. By doing so, the application can be deployed on any number of servers in a matter of seconds.
Since every database speaks its own language, getting them up and running slows down the development process. To facilitate this process, Smoothy provides software developers with a catalog of the most popular NoSQL, SQL, and special-purpose databases that they can install on their servers in a matter of seconds.
Software developers that want to get their applications online, often do not want to put all their eggs into one basket. However, renting servers from different cloud providers implies that the developer has to use different control panels on different websites. This makes it hard to keep an overview of the state of every server and slows down maintenance. Smoothy’s deploy features eliminate this nuisance by enabling software developers to rent and manage their servers from different world-leading cloud providers all from the same easy-to-use interface.
