Are you looking for a project that gives you the opportunity to work with application technologies enabling workloads to be executed in cloud? Do you want to experience and get deep insight into how mission-critical communication applications get benefits of cloud technology and what are the issues that need to be solved?
Keywords: Cloud technology, microservices, IaaS, PaaS, virtualization, data, Kubernetes
Motorola Solutions creates innovative, mission-critical communication solutions that are essential in the daily operations of public safety and commercial customers. It is their lifeline.
Industry cloud adoption rate is at all times high. Proven to be more effective cloud technology can make mission-critical communication more efficient and more ubiquitous. Our business team together with our customer are looking into the benefits of the cloud for critical communication.
Your task during the project will be to study existing SW architecture and defining new architecture where cloud services can be used together with mission-critical radio infrastructure. Analyze and compare cloud services and how they can meet requirements for the overall solution in terms of architecture and performance. Conclude on what migration strategy is required and feasible for a particular application to run in both current infrastructure and cloud.
During this project you are going to:
- Analyze and understand what the cloud has to offer compared to on-prem infrastructure.
- Work with cloud services to assess the usability of it for mission-critical applications.
- Perform simulation or Proof of Concept deployment of a particular application into the cloud.
- Work closely with experienced engineers to develop a cloud migration strategy.
At the end of this project you will be able to:
- Understand the benefits and constraints behind running applications in the cloud.
- Clearly articulate pros and cons of different cloud services and application dependencies.
- Use scientific approach for data analysis, simulation and conclusion generation.
- Present your results to senior leaders of the company.
- Have valued experience within the field of communication and cloud technologies.
