NRGI Modernizes Their Workloads With AWS Migration Solutions

About NRGI

Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) is a global nonprofit that envisions natural resources fostering fair, prosperous, and sustainable societies. This organization collaboratively generates and translates knowledge into policy reform, particularly in resource-rich nations. NRGI shares insights with policy-makers, accountability actors, and the global campaign for better international norms. Additionally, they partner with government and civil society reformers to design and implement fair policies aligned with the priorities of citizens in developing nations.

How Cloudelligent Successfully Solved NRGI’s Challenges


AWS Cloud Migration

The Cloudelligent team was able to successfully migrate NRGI's workloads from Rackspace to AWS. Departing from the traditional lift-and-shift approach, we opted for containerization and DevOps practices. The groundwork was laid for the migration project by designing a well-architected AWS environment, which consisted primarily of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS).


Cloud Strategy and Design

NRGI's infrastructure was fully modernized with a 3-tier architecture. This setup segregated the network into distinct layers to enhance scalability. Moreover, we also implemented high availability by distributing applications across multiple Availability Zones. This gives high availability and redundancy. If one of the Availability Zones is unavailable, NRGI’s applications would not be affected as traffic would flow to the other two Availability Zones.


DevOps and Automation

Cloudelligent streamlined NRGI’s deployment through DevOps practices. Developers initiate deployment by pushing code to a source repository. AWS CodePipeline automatically triggers a build process which is managed by AWS CodeBuild. This process generates artifacts, creates a Docker image, and pushes them to Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) to ensure efficient and automated deployment of services on AWS infrastructure.

Results & Benefits

The Value of Our Customized and Well-Architected Solutions

Harnessing the expertise of our skilled team, we resolved NRGI’s challenges and helped them unlock a multitude of advantages.

Access to On-Demand Resources and AWS Ecosystem

Cloudelligent empowered NRGI to access on-demand compute resources on AWS, freeing them from Rackspace’s limitations. NRGI allocates resources flexibly across the globe to ensure peak performance. Additionally, NRGI benefits from AWS’s extensive ecosystem to support various frameworks, databases, and open-source tools, enhancing their ability to fulfil their mission effectively.

Automated Deployment Processes

Leveraging Cloudelligent’s expertise, NRGI benefited from a streamlined deployment process. Utilizing AWS CodePipeline, developers push code to repositories that trigger automatic builds with AWS CodeBuild. This process seamlessly updated ECS task definitions and services and enables efficient deployment and continuous delivery of applications on AWS.

Enhanced Elasticity and Scalability

With Cloudelligent’s help, NRGI can easily adjust resource scaling according to demand and ensure smooth adaptation to changing workloads. The customer can deploy critical workloads using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) instances, which could be spun up in seconds to ensure business continuity.
