Increasing performance for businesses using Containerization

August 18, 2021

Over the last 15 years, Chris Johnson Studios have built a network of the best web, mobile, game and TV application developers across all leading programming languages. They come from near and far and come in different shapes and sizes (individuals, small teams and large companies), enabling them to fit the right team for each specific client project no matter the deadline, budget or location. They project and manage the development teams from start to finish to ensure the best and highest results.

The Challenge

CJS was running the WordPress application and its travel portal along with the database on a single server, and they were tightly coupled. The scalability and availability were challenging for them, and they were looking for a solution.

The Solution

Rapyder worked with them to understand the current architecture and application and suggested containerization of the application for faster scaling and high availability.

  1. Rapyder engineers worked with the application team to containerize the application.
  2. The database has been migrated to AWS RDS.
  3. The setup has been deployed in a private subnet behind a public-facing load balancer to serve the application.
  4. Application is deployed on the ECS cluster and Autoscaling group to scale the application based on demand.
  5. AWS Elasticsearch has been used to run aggregated searches on the portal.
  6. Three different environments have been set up so that application moves through development, testing and deployment to production.
  7. CI/CD pipelines have been set up for each environment so that developers can focus only on development and applications can have faster GTM.
  8. Monitoring has been set up using AWS Cloudwatch.
  9. AWS S3 was used for any Data / Logs backups.
  10. AWS CloudTrail was set up for account activity tracking.


  1. The customer now has a highly available and scalable architecture.
  2. Application performance has improved due to containerization.
  3. The application now has faster GTM due to automated deployments.
