Goals of the Project
Running a multifunctional website on a Magento platform requires conducting an in-depth audit and ensuring speed optimization. In 2018, the Muscle Food team reached out to us for DevOps support.
Muscle Food had occasional issues with infrastructure but had no monitoring to identify the cause of the problem. It turned out that the 3rd party managed the infrastructure, and no-one had access to it.
We built a new infrastructure using Infrastructure as Code approach with Terraform and Ansible. Migration was seamless and caused no downtime. For monitoring, we set up Prometheus, Grafana, and Alertmanager that gives the client full observability of the infrastructure and early notification of the occurring issues.
As soon as we got access, we started providing DevOps support which included:
tight cooperation with the development team
infrastructure issues fixes
monitoring and logging
24/7 DevOps team availability
During our collaboration, we have accomplished hundreds of tasks and consequently made significant changes to the MuscleFood infrastructure. The main improvements include:
Improved stability and security of the production systems through building, releasing and configuration management of production instances
Reduced human errors in maintaining, troubleshooting the development processes
I am really happy with the service Opsworks provides. Your team is really helpful and responsive. They work quickly on new functionality and are always happy to help! 10/10!
