Increasing performance for businesses using Containerization

Over the last 15 years Chris Johnson Studios have built up a network of the best web, mobile, game and TV application developers in their field across all main programming languages. They come from near and far and come in different shapes and sizes (individuals, small teams and large companies) which enables them to fit the right team for each specific client project no matter what the deadline, budget or location. They project 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 the single server and they were tightly coupled. The scalability and availability was a challenge for them and they were looking out 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. Database has been migrated to AWS RDS.
  3. The setup has been deployed in private subnet behind a public facing load balancer to server the application.
  4. Application is deployed on ECS cluster along with Autoscaling group to scale the application based on demand.
  5. AWS Elasticsearch has been used to run aggregated search on portal.
  6. Three different environments has been setup so that application move through lifecycle of development, testing and deploy to production.
  7. CI/CD pipelines has been setup for each environment so that developers can focus only on development and application can have faster GTM.
  8. Monitoring has been setup using AWS Cloudwatch.
  9. AWS S3 was used for any Data / Logs backups.
  10. AWS CloudTrail was setup for account activity tracking.


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