total savings for users
Moving from proof of concept to a state of fully launched startup, the client wasn't sure that the platform was ready to cope with the flow of new users. Creating a robust infrastructure to handle the expected traffic surge smoothly became essential.
Lack of Stability
Taking the common startup approach, the client focused on core features rather than on system performance. However, lacking a zero downtime deployment configuration, they faced potential risks with each live platform update or change.
Saving resources, the client decided to launch the product with a manually maintained server configuration and deployment process. However, as the team and project grew, managing completely non-automated operations became more and more challenging.
Understanding the client's struggles and budget limitations, the OpsWorks Co. team suggested adopting our client-validated reference architecture. This approach allows speed-up development while staying budget-friendly. Our reference architecture seamlessly aligns with all six pillars of the Well-Architected Framework, making it a solid and reliable project base.
To ensure the platform's scalability, our team used Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). This approach helped us achieve flexibility and scalability of the solution, making it ready to efficiently handle traffic surges and constantly deliver users a high-quality experience.
Elevating the project to a new level, our team automated the CI/CD process using GitHub Actions. Since the platform's source code was already stored there, it made perfect sense to continue using the tools the team was already familiar with.
