The client wanted to accelerate its business growth by overhauling its entire infrastructure. Their goal was to develop high-quality code, increase scalability, and improve release times while better managing costs. Velotio was able to help them Standardized Infrastructure design and streamline all changes using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools and Gitflow processes. This reduced overall infrastructure cost by 60% and improve the quality of releases leading to an increase in business agility.
The client is a fast-growing Real Estate Tech company in Southern California. The customer has distributed engineering teams across the US and the globe. The customer has several award-winning products and services catering to the realtors.
The client had manual release processes, non-standard infrastructure architecture across all the products, error-prone scripts for infrastructure management, and tribal knowledge limited to a few individuals. These factors were limiting the customers’ ability to develop high-quality code, work at scale, improve release times and manage costs. In turn, this slowed down business growth. The customer finally decided to engage with Velotio - a leading Cloud & DevOps practitioner to overhaul their entire infrastructure.
They were facing many challenges with the current state of affairs.
“Velotio has been instrumental in our adoption of DevOps and Continuous Delivery transformation. They quickly set up a team of software devs and DevOps architects with expertise across various platforms and toolsets. Our team enjoyed working with Velotio's DevOps team. It felt more like a partnership where Velotio's team was genuinely interested in understanding and solving our challenges than just working with another Vendor.”
After the review of the challenges and business issues Velotio’s team of Cloud & DevOps architects implemented the following changes:
Moved customer from Heroku to AWS without any disruption.
Reduced architectural and operational costs by 62.7%. Set up failure detection algorithms, anomaly detection, and alerting mechanisms for easy monitoring and to ensure bottlenecks are detected proactively.
The 6-month release cycle was finally replaced with the daily release cycles enabled via Continuous Delivery and infrastructure automation processes set up with AWS.
