The Business Need
Bewakoof.com was earlier running its workloads in GCP, which was deployed and managed by its internal team. However, with Bewakoof’s focus on business growth and scale, its management moved the workloads and entire operations to AWS cloud, given the latter’s reliability, the numerous managed services, and the efﬁcient cost structure offerings. It wanted to leverage the AWS cloud suite to power its platform backend, marketing tech, and data services.
Bewakoof was exploring a suitable and reliable partner to support them in migrating and deploying the workloads seamlessly onto AWS, with minimal downtime. The Client also wanted to ensure that best practices were being followed along with associated cost beneﬁts and no data loss.
Rapyder Cloud Solutions, an Advanced AWS Consulting partner with expertise and experience in successful cloud migration services, was chosen by the Client to help move the workloads to AWS Cloud.
Rapyder’s team of Cloud Architects had several discovery sessions with the Client to understand the latter’s requirement for migration to AWS Cloud. The team then conceptualized and stitched a robust and customized solution around AWS services for the migration. The following proposed solution was implemented by Rapyder for a successful migration to AWS while ensuring that best practices and business continuity principles were also applied:
- EKS cluster in AWS was conﬁgured to setup the application on AWS.
- The CICD pipeline was built using native AWS services to ensure business continuity, faster go-to-market, and integration with other AWS services.
- The migration activity was completed within the agreed time frame with the Client.
Automated threat detection was implemented using AWS GuardDuty, an ML-based threat detection service that helps identify malicious activities and unauthorized behavior to protect AWS accounts, workload, and data.
The pandemic and other factors that contributed to the ﬂuctuation of the market also impacted the operational and storage needs of the IT infrastructure in general. By applying business continuity principles and best practices in moving the workloads to AWS Cloud, the Rapyder team brought about a signiﬁcant increase in performance and cost efﬁciency,
- The cloud cost was reduced by 30 percent, and in the long term, the migration is likely to bring down the cost by a signiﬁcant 15-20
- The operational overheads were reduced signiﬁcantly by leveraging the managed services of AWS, such as ElastiCache.
- Enabled to scale quickly to handle the unexpected spikes in trafﬁc, as and when the need arises.
- Cost efﬁciency was also achieved by using AMD-based instances on AWS.
- Application release management was made seamless with building the CICD process for the application running on EKS, thereby ensuring business.
- The process that was built using native AWS tools ensured better integrations with other AWS services.
- The migration will drive the platform’s growth by adding more capabilities and SKUs, leading to an increase in the number of monthly visitors.
- It will help the brand to go regional by enabling the designing of products that align with the cultural and regional ethos besides the region-speciﬁc weather conditions. This will require data streaming, analysis, and quick decision-making that are enabled with the AWS cloud.
- By leveraging AWS-managed services and deep tech support, Bewakoof can provide an enhanced user experience and customization at scale.
