The Design

SOA is a design philosophy independent of any vendor, product, technology or industry trend. No vendor will ever offer a “complete” SOA “stack” because SOA needs vary from one organization to another. Purchasing your SOA infrastructure from a single vendor defeats the purpose of investing in SOA. nutshell is an enterprise modernization framework built for authoring and running business services. nutshell is highly extensible given it's large service store on-premise, cloud and hybrid hosting models modern design using the leading open source it's design is based on SOA principles and has it's roots in TOGAF.


On premise


Docker Datacenter brings container management and deployment services to enterprises with a production-ready platform supported by Docker and hosted locally behind the firewall.

Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in

The Direction

nutshell implies standard ways of handling all service requests. these standards result in: 
  • reusability, 
  • maturity and stability 
  • efficiency and simplicity quality
SOA is as important as it’s always been, it’s important for cloud, important for mobile, social, for all you’re doing. Cloud is where things are running, SOA is how you get there, and that’s how the two of them fit well together.
