Frequently Asked Questions When Working With a Cloud-native Solutions Partner


How are project costs determined when working with Ceiba for cloud-native solutions?

To calculate project costs, it’s essential to assess two key factors: the cost of necessary resources and the effort involved in project development. Ceiba follows a specific strategy by conducting an “inception” of the solution, a collaborative exercise with stakeholders. During this process, we define the goals of the software to be built, including its features, success criteria, and a technical approach to the solution. The artifacts resulting from this “inception” serve as a foundation for a high-level estimate of the effort needed for implementation and an estimate of the required cloud resource costs. The scale of these estimates depends directly on the complexity and size of the software in question. Finally, Ceiba compiles an estimate of the total project costs, suggested as a budget to be reserved. Subsequently, following an agile methodology, we implement the solution to shorten the time to market through an iterative and incremental product strategy.

What is the typical project duration for implementing a cloud-native architecture project with Ceiba?Ceiba Blog

Ceiba has a track record of successfully managing projects with durations ranging from 3 months to a year and a half or longer, depending on the complexity of the product you want to implement. In all cases, Ceiba’s strategy for implementing cloud-native solutions aims to primarily reduce time to market. To achieve this, we follow an approach that involves defining releases, enabling the availability of initial versions in productive environments as quickly as possible.

What measures does Ceiba have in place to ensure the security of our data and applications during the development process?

At Ceiba, we employ a range of measures to ensure the security of the applications we develop. Our architectural designs incorporate clear strategies for mitigating security risks by establishing demilitarized and militarized zones within the network, along with stringent authentication and authorization policies.

In addition to our proactive security approach during the design phase, Ceiba embraces DevSecOps practices. We continuously review code and component images to assess and uphold the best security practices during development, actively identifying potential vulnerabilities. In this process, we automatically verify the versions of third-party libraries and components used, ensuring a prompt identification of the need for updates and the application of patches to preempt any potential external threats.

Ultimately, depending on the criticality of the projects and the sensitivity of the information involved, we may also conduct penetration testing on the developed products. These strategies are ingrained in our commitment to ensuring the security of the products we create, with security being a paramount priority for us.

How does Ceiba stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in cloud-native technologies projects?

At Ceiba, we have a dedicated team that continuously monitors the launch of new services across various cloud providers, as well as the progress of projects within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation ( When we identify projects with the potential to add value to our clients, we conduct proof-of-concept tests, delve deeper into understanding, and perform comprehensive studies and tests. It’s all part of our commitment to harnessing that knowledge to enhance our projects and better serve our clients.

How to accurately compare the costs of a cloud solution versus managing it in your own data center?Our first half of the year

When comparing the costs of your cloud solution with the same setup in your data center, it’s crucial to make both scenarios as comparable as possible. To achieve this, you need to consider various overlooked aspects, potentially influencing the final decision in cost analyses. For instance, it’s essential to factor in the maintenance costs of your data center, covering elements like cooling, physical space, security measures, and strategies for fault tolerance and disaster recovery. Additionally, assess whether you have an alternative data center in a different location, manage redundant network channels, ensure a reliable power supply, and consider system maintenance costs, among other factors. These are just a few of the cost drivers that are commonly disregarded, leading to incomplete analyses for an effective comparison.

Moreover, it’s crucial to evaluate the additional capabilities and benefits you can gain. For instance, the scalability offered by the cloud is a significant advantage. While your data center may have limitations in terms of resources for scaling, the cloud provides flexibility in this aspect. These additional benefits should also be taken into account for a fair comparison between both scenarios.
