Scale Development utilizes multiple technologies to advance its offering. To host the ava-touch app in the Heroku cloud, the company had to pay high prices for the services without getting enough benefits of it. At the same time, it would be less expensive and easier to manage the assets in AWS. AWS offers services that allow Scale Development to get desired elasticity, scalability and easy management of its cloud infrastructure.


Being a certified AWS consulting partner, Romexsoft did professional expertise of ava-touch software and environment and quickly conducted a plan of migration to AWS with its infrastructure design. Implemented cloud system utilizes the following services:

  • Domain Name System (Route53);
  • Elastic Beanstalk Service (EBS);
  • Elastic Container Service (ECS) with Autoscaling Configuration;
  • Elastic Load Balancer (ELB);
  • Virtual Private Cloud (VPC),
  • Identity Access Management (IAM);
  • Elastic Container Registry (ECR);
  • RDS (PostgreSQL);
  • Simple Storage Service (S3);
  • Monitoring and Logging (Cloud Watch).

As a result, the environment of the ava-touch app was deployed in AWS without downtime. Scale Development paid half as much, and a scalable system’s architecture made the application ready for high load. Romexsoft implemented Elastic Beanstalk Service (EBS) which gives SD the opportunity to easily manage its web app environment. Romexsoft and SD continue working together. Romexsoft improves migrated web app source code. Moreover, the partner is going to develop other web apps implementing Serverless and Lambda AWS services there.
