The Obstacles They Faced

CorporateGift faced a lot of challenges caused by rapid market growth, the main of which were scalability and security that could not be satisfied within their on-premises data center.

How We Helped

By migrating CorporateGift infrastructure from on-premises to AWS, Romexsoft helped CorporateGift achieve the required level of scalability and security, which was not available on their on-premises data center.

The Challenges

CorporateGift IT infrastructure was located on the on-premises data center. The application servers and the database were deployed on one server (including Dev and Production environments) which was not scalable at all, had monolithic architecture and security breaches. To meet the increasing market demands the company asked Romexsoft to migrate their existing solution into a scalable, highly available, and secure environment.

The Solution

AWS migration gives organizations a transformational opportunity to change the way they do business. Security and scalability are always at the top of the agenda in any cloud conversation, however, customers find that their scalability opportunities and security posture increase when they move to the AWS Cloud.

AWS migration competent companies like Romexsoft, that have deep experience in helping businesses successfully move to AWS through all phases of complex migration projects, discovery, planning, and operations, provide customers with cost-effective and competitive solutions.

To meet client’s requirements Romexsoft suggested to apply the AWS Replatforming migration strategy. Romexsoft dockerized client’s applications and launched them on ECS Fargate service. As a DB layer – RDS Aurora Serverless was used. AWS ElastiCache service was used as the main caching layer and AWS ElasticSearch service was used as a logs processing tool. Network infrastructure was designed according to the AWS best practices: with multi AZs, bastion hosts in public subnets, and NAT gateways for resources in private subnets. AWS CodePipeline was used for CI/CD processes. Production and Staging environments were provisioned by AWS CloudFormation and set up in different regions.
