About The Company
Theclientstarted the business as a consultancy helping large companies run competitions in schools. It soon became evident, however, that data was the key to all things marketing. Incorporated as a Limited company in 1991,thecompany has been using data to help education suppliers market and sell effectively into schools and colleges ever since.
The client was looking for a cloud agnostic tool to orchestrate the infrastructure onto multiple public clouds(AWS, Azure). They wanted the infrastructure to be up in the matter of few minutes. The client had different environments like production, staging, and QA to test. Database backups were also included as part of the infrastructure setup.
DevOps engineers at Rapyder Cloud Solutionsreviewed and analyzedthe client’s requirement wheretheneedwasto orchestrate the infrastructure within few minutesand that alsoshould be cloud agnostic. Engineers at Rapyder usedTerraformto codify the provisioning of infrastructure onto the public cloudandenabledthis provisioning to these cloudsthroughautomation. By automating manual configurations, we also eliminatedthe possibility ofhuman error.
The solution provided by Rapyderalso took care of the database backupfor the situation whenthe infrastructure is destroyed–automated backup of the databasewould be kicked off in that scenario.
Not only infra butRapyderalso automated the application deployment process by integrating GitLab (an open source software)to improve software development andtoaccelerate the software delivery.As a result, the client’s applicationcould be brought upwithin no time and without human intervention.
Using this solution, the client is now able to test their application and deploy it on the production environment without downtime.The clientstime to marketis significantly reduced. The solution provides the flexibility to the client to orchestrate the infra asandwhen needed.
- The clientisable to launch create the infrastructure over multiple public clouds withina very short time span (matter ofminutes).
- The client has the flexibility to launch the infrastructure as and when needed.
- The automated deployments help the client push the application into production seamlessly, therebyreducingthe time to market.
- Automated backup of database ensures that they always haveacopy of their latest databasethat can be used in case of DR.
