One of our principles in Government as a Platform (GaaP) is to avoid being tied to a single supplier. We often get asked how we’ll apply this principle to the GOV.UK Platform as a Service (PaaS) and that's what we'll discuss in this post.
This is the second guest post from Matthew Ford, the Technical Director of Bit Zesty, on the migration of the GOV.UK Trade Tariff service to the Platform as a Service for government (PaaS). Here Matthew writes about the technical lessons learned and how the Bit Zesty and PaaS teams resolved them.
We’re building a Platform as a Service, which will be used to host services from across GDS, and the rest of government. And, we’re looking for a senior product manager to help make this happen.
In July, the Trade Tariff became the first service to migrate to the Platform as a Service for government. In this post Matt Ford shares some of the benefits and challenges of the migration.
This post is about an incident on the 'Platform as a Service for government' production environment for hosting applications.
