What are the benefits of cloud computing with AWS?

Trade capital expense for variable expense

Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can pay only when you consume computing resources, and pay only for how much you consume.

Most secure

AWS is architected to be the most flexible and secure cloud computing environment available today. The core infrastructure is built to satisfy the highest security requirements (like the military, global banks, and other high-sensitivity organizations). AWS supports 90 security standards and compliance certifications.

Fastest pace of innovation

With AWS, you can leverage the latest technologies to experiment and innovate more quickly. Accelerate the pace of innovation to invent entirely new technologies you can use to transform your business. In a cloud computing environment, new IT resources are only a click away. Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure.

High availability and scalability

Migrating to the cloud and properly configured services will allow you to feel the full potential of the cloud. Using AWS tools, Auto Scaling, and Elastic Load Balancing, your application can scale up or down based on demand. Plus, you have access to compute and storage resources when you need them.

Go global in minutes

AWS has the most extensive global cloud infrastructure. No other cloud provider offers as many Regions with multiple Availability Zones. Easily deploy your application around the world with just a few clicks. You can provide lower latency and a better experience for your customers at minimal cost.

Enterprise-level Backing Up

Amazon provides incredible redundancy and fail-safe protocols in place to keep data safe and backed-up. With a 99.95% guaranteed uptime, businesses should take comfort in knowing that their data will always be available. End users don’t need to worry about having back-up protocols in place or having to invest in physical media to store old and archived files.

Searchmetrics

Searchmetrics is the market-leading provider of a software platform for online marketing, with a clear strategic focus on Search and Content Marketing. The project is focused around company’s main product – SEO platform services.

Searchmetrics

Challenges

Supporting in migrating services into the cloud, the main goal was to move to the cloud with dispatch in estimated time. The Client planned to move a few services, and needed professional support. Completing the replacement of old services (satellite) with new ones, we had to find all the dependencies, connections between the services, it was the most difficult and took the longest time, there was a lot of searching in configurations. Reverse engineering of existing infrastructure into Ansible to get infrastructure configuration in code ('Software as a code'). Adaptation of old services so that they could be implemented in the ECS.

Solutions

Fireup.pro’s role was to provide the highest quality of programming and architecture skills.

01

Data file storage migration from NFS to AWS S3 in traffic backend, web analytics crawler and web analytics crawler callback services. Achieved by reading source data files from S3 instead of NFS, storing data in csv on S3 web-analytics-crawler and storing data in csv on S3 wac-callback-service.

02

Microservices migration and their partial implementation on AWS.

03

Data bases and services migration from UM to AWS.

04

The customer is currently using UM but decided to move some of their services to AWS. After analysis AWS tools and services are predicted to bring some savings to the company.

The existing infrastructure configuration in Ansible has been refactored. Missing infrastructure configurations have been added based on manually added entries in CloudFormation. Old services written in PHP or Java were put in Docker, health-checks were added to enable their installation in the AWS ECS cluster and load balancing using ELB.

Results

Migration of services and databases to AWS was 100% successful.

The data migration improved server infrastructure capability and eliminated all problems with application operation and resource availability in case of overload. Crucial thing is that all clients receive demanded data much faster thanks to geolocation.

New infrastructure is highly scalable. Implemented mechanisms help to quickly increase or decrease resources, with minimal possible time of application unavailability. Additionally, new infrastructure enables us to separate traffic generated by application itself from traffic generated by users.

Challenges

Our role was to provide the highest quality of programming and architecture skills, as well as to be a reliable partner in developing AWS tools, when it comes to data migration. The biggest challenge was choosing the technology to aggregate large amounts of data from various sources in one place. The data is over 300GB, which was ultimately to be displayed in a dozen, well-refined in terms of UX views.

Solutions

Project, divided into frontend and backend applications, has been deployed to AWS infrastructure using Docker, AWS ECS and RDS services. Development and deployment configuration has been provided through Terraform repository, which helped coordinate work between development and infrastructure teams.

Results

The data migration from the previous version of the system increased server infrastructure capacity and removed all application operation and resource availability issues in the event of an overload. The important thing is that, thanks to geolocation, all clients receive requested data much faster.

Technology stack

The team was using tools such as ECS and RDS which helps to improve the availability and flexibility of the solution. Well suited for the customer needs.

fireup.pro’s commitment throughout the engagement has been a delight. Their team is proactive, proposing ideas for technology, user experience, and business.

Kipinä

Kipinä is an international platform for communication between school, teachers, and the parents. It’s also a school management system that helps to supervise the child's progress.

Kipinä

Challenges

AWS setup was one of our main challenges, but the biggest one here was video conversion. Besides that, we had to get to know the solutions used by the previous development team and rewrite the application in a way that enables its further development.

Solutions

For the front end part of the project (mobile application) FireUp has prepared and implemented highly scalable, reliable architecture based on Amazon Web Services. We wanted our developers to be focused on building applications, so we used AWS Fargate, a serverless compute engine for Docker containers that works with Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). This solution removes the need of managing servers, it’s cost friendly (the customer only pays for the resources used), and improves security through application isolation by design. FireUp launched ECS service with Elastic Load Balancing which prepares them for increased application traffic and allows maintaining high resource availability (HA).

Our second challenge in this project was to create a VOD service for Kipinä mobile app that is targeted to a global audience. We used a few AWS Cloud solutions to achieve this goal. To store and archive video files we used Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), AWS Elemental MediaConvert to transcode and optimize files, Amazon CloudFront for global distribution of the transcoded content and AWS Step Functions to orchestrate whole process (ingest, processing, and publishing workflows).

Results

The results of implementing the application to AWS are scalability and quick availability regardless of the location of the user.

After implementing this solution, the time required to play the video decreased from 30s to about 5s, regardless of the location.

  • 02

    mobilize (You create a migration plan and refine your business case. You address gaps in your company’s readiness that were uncovered during the assess phase, with a focus on building your baseline environment and developing cloud skills.)

  • 03

    migrate and modernize (Each application is designed, migrated, and validated.)

Each phase builds on the previous one. It’s an iterative process. While migrating to AWS, you iterate on your new foundation, turn off old systems, and constantly evolve toward a modern operating model. It becomes an agile set of people, process, and technology that improves as you migrate more applications. Read also our article about 5 Things You MUST Consider Before Migrating to AWS
