the HAT: your private microservice container

The HAT is a private ‘microserver’ for individuals on the Internet. HATDeX HATs deploy Docker Containers on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which wraps up a complete system that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools and system libraries. With the individual’s HAT in a Container, it will be lightweight and will run on any computer, on any infrastructure and in any Cloud, and therefore accessible anywhere by the user acrosH-certifieds all devices. Each Container runs a complete and independent HAT, and the only way to communicate with a HAT is via designated APIs. The Container-based solution also provides an added layer of protection by localising impact of any security issues and eliminating the possibility of system administrators enabling unauthorised access to the data of large numbers of users.
