Executive Summary

Our customer offers machine learning, cloud-based auditing software for the wholesale finance audit industry. To achieve their objectives, they required assistance to support their Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure and modernize the non-production and production environments.

They also faced a lack of segregation of workloads and a broken pipeline for continuous deployment. Cloudelligent’s services helped the customer solve these challenges, paving way for their internal team to work on product development more efficiently and reliably, and reduce costs by up to 20%.

About the Customer

Challenge

Our customer faced the following IT challenges:

Test and validate the multi-Availability Zones at the primary to ensure that their database was highly available.

Redefine the backup retention at the read replica and validate their existing Amazon RDS DR.

Automate their time-consuming administrative tasks such as resource provisioning, patching, database setup, and backups.

If these issues were not addressed, it would have resulted in additional cost charges on their monthly bill. They would have also experienced disruption of day-to-day operations within their AWS environment.
