How We Helped
To support customer’s goals Romexsoft provides set of managed services tailored for specific ECommerce Partners needs.
During the onboarding phase our DevOps team improved availability, scalability and performance of multiple web sites hosted on AWS and operated by ECommerce Partners.
And then, during the ongoing phase Romexsoft provides 24/7 DevOps support services with 5 minutes SLA which is critical for our client and for e-commerce businesses generally.
ECommerce Partners needed assistance with multiple websites’ support, including regular maintenance tasks for existing servers on AWS and on other hostings, opening and configuration web servers (like Elastic Cache, Sphinx, Varnish, etc.), availability to handle downtime and other issues. Availability for providing troubleshooting and DevOps support during after working hours, holidays and weekends was critical to the client.

Solution Delivered by Romexsoft
To ensure business continuity and make all customer’s websites operate smoothly 24/7/365, Romexsoft implemented their 24/7 incidents management and DevOps support solution which included 100 incidents and 60 hours for DevOps tasks. The solution consisted of three phases that included discovery and planning, set up and transition and ongoing support.
Romexsoft did the expertise of customer’s current AWS environments and ensured that targeted infrastructure and workloads were covered with monitoring tools (Zabbix, CloudWatch + Grafana for consolidated data visualization), making the solution flexible and cost-effective, as well as ensured that alerting and incident management tools were working properly (PagerDuty, Jira ServiceDesk) and all the escalation rules were properly configured.
Then Romexsoft started 24/7/365 Tier-2 DevOps support with their engineers working in rotation to provide day-to-day infrastructure management, troubleshooting and improvements within 5 to 15 minutes SLA including out-of-office hours and holidays.

What We Achieved Together

In the remaining cases incident investigation time was reduced from 60 to 10 minutes. Moreover, by configuring Jira ServiceDesk all the tasks and incidents were managed on time without causing any downtime for their clients’ websites. Customer’s infrastructure has become more secure and cost-effective while operating smoothly 24/7.
Being satisfied with the quality of work provided by Romexsoft, ECommerce Partners decided to continue the partnership and start working on migration of another website on PHP Magento MySQL stack from on-premises to AWS as well as implement CI/CD to automate the processes and reduce human errors in maintaining and troubleshooting.
