WOA! Very long list I try to summarize what I think is critical and should be reworded.
I hope I’m not reviewing some GPT output
I agree with Michael, if IT professionals are its audience Application hosting platform seems a bit vague.
Also hybrid cloud infrastructure/application server are not that better
“Scaling” is quite bold IMO. As it is multi-node, NS8 could be the base to build a scalable module, but existing modules are (still) not aiming at scalability.
Wrong. As said in another thread NS8 modules/applications are built of containers like NS7 apps are built of RPMs. NS8 does not run arbitrary containers, like NS7 does not run arbitrary RPMs: the app developers work is integrate them with the rest of the system.
For this reason “your container infrastructure” must not be taken as “your arbitrary container infrastructure”: it is forcibly limited to existing NS8 apps.
How much is difficult to write a NS8 app? I hope it is super-easy, because it is one of our goals, but I guess it is not trivial. By time we can improve the developer experience too…
I don’t understand
What do you mean for regular health checks? NS8 has the local builtin firewall, but has no self-healing.
We no longer have a general customization tool, like E-Smith templates. Individual applications provide documented customization points because it is widely recognized as a value for users (sysadmins), developers and support team.
If “customizable” is what I understood, see the above reply.
Again, not your containers: it can be misunderstood. It is about applications…
I agree with Michael that it is important to know what’s under the hood. Especially in a long text I expect the container part is explained, as I wrote above. Think about evaluating the system security: where the software comes from?
I understand that it is not something that make us different from today’s products. Software is distributed as containers more and more: like Alessio suggest it is maybe not important to say it, especially in a short text.
First 4 paragraphs I feel
- Point 1 “Ease of installation” ok!
- Point 2 “Simplified container management”, your container infrastructure
As said, I get it wrong
- Point 3 “Customizable modular design”
As said, it is not customizable by design but by app developer’s willpower
- Point 4 “Active community support” True!
I note that here NS8 becomes a “platform”
- Point 5 “Scalability” yes, in the sense of split and moving the apps to new nodes.
There is also another enhancement from NS7. You can install multiple user domains in the same cluster. That means many organizations could be managed from the same cluster.
