A Middle East based travel app that offers flight and hotel bookings, travel guides, and travel insurance. The company has been growing rapidly, increasing its customer base and expanding its product offerings.
After through analysis of their existing architecture and resource usage and detailed discussions with the client, we recommended to migrate to AWS using following services.
We have successfully set up a highly scalable and efficient AWS infrastructure to meet the requirements of our client’s application. Our infrastructure leverages a combination of powerful AWS services, including ECS, ECR, Fargate, EFS, S3, Aurora, ALB, CloudFront, Route 53, WAF, CodeCommit, CodeDeploy, and CodeBuild. For container deployment, we utilized Fargate, a serverless compute engine that automatically scales containers. ECS manages the container deployments, while ECR stores container images securely. To enhance availability and scalability, we used ALB for traffic distribution within Fargate. We employed EFS for scalable file storage for Fargate and S3 for storing static contents. We setup Datasync for consistent and reliable syncing of static files between EFS & S3. For Database, we elected Aurora over RDS for its built-in scalability. Route 53 handles DNS and traffic routing, while WAF provided security against web exploits. CloudFront served as the global CDN.
We used AWS CodePipeline for CI/CD. CodeCommit serves as our source control,CodeBuild enables continuous integration and automated builds and CodeDeploy automates deployments. We setup a deployment stage to deploy the built code to AWS Fargate while also added another stage to copy static files to the S3 bucket. This combination of services creates a robust, scalable, and efficient infrastructure, ensuring high availability, security, and streamlined development processes.
After implementing the above solutions, the website saw a significant improvement in its performance, scalability, and security. The website’s containers could scale up or down automatically based on traffic and usage patterns, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership and better resource utilization. The website’s database was highly available, durable, and secure, ensuring that the website’s data was always accessible and protected. The website’s content was delivered to users worldwide quickly and reliably, resulting in a better user experience and higher customer satisfaction. The website’s development and deployment processes were streamlined and automated, resulting in a faster time-to-market and more frequent releases. Overall, the client was extremely happy with the outcome of the project and the benefits that it brought to the website and its users.
