The Challenge

The Client contemplated using AWS Cloud for their developer instances and building machines for running their EDA toolset development software.

The requirement was a seamless desktop experience on the machines to simulate the desktop environment.

The Solution

Rapyder had a detailed discussion with the customer and carried out the POC. The outputs of the POC were the following:

  • The Ubuntu EC2 server was provisioned, and all the requirements were fulfilled.
  • VNC was set up initially for user testing.
  • NoMachine evaluation edition was installed and given for signoff from the customer.

Rapyder has deployed the following infrastructure and architecture to help the Client achieve its goals.

  • Six EC2 servers with desktop EDA tools for the individual developers.
  • Two Build servers were set up for the team for a high workload.
  • Setup and installation of NoMachine on the individual machines and build servers.
  • Site-to-site VPN connection from the Noida office to AWS.
  • Setup of OpenVPN server to have developers connect from other places besides the Client’s office.

The Benefits

– The automation reduced the time required for environment creation and deployment from 3 days to 20 minutes.
– The cost of the AWS infrastructure of the Client was reduced by 50%.
– The Client was able to deploy many environments on the same day.
– The accelerated deployment of environments and optimized cost of the AWS infrastructure not only saved the time and money of the Client but also reduced its Go-to-market time significantly. Thus, helping it to serve its customer in a better way.
