Cloud303 migrated their application to GovCloud and also future-proofed their deployments by using managed services and autoscaling, as well as creating CloudFormation templates to simplify additional deployments.
Cloud303 worked with 10-8 Systems engineers to get a handle on their existing infrastructure and guided them through the migration into the cloud. More than a lift-and-shift, Cloud303 provided guidance and created the infrastructure necessary to scale the application as needed.
It was clear that not only would the on-premises facility become untenable from a scalability standpoint, but also from a financial perspective. By moving to AWS GovCloud, 10-8 Systems’ deployments were not only ready for their rapid growth but also right-sized at every stage.
In the database tier, Cloud303 leveraged CloudEndure to replicate the architecture and data from 10-8 Systems on-premises facility to AWS. A three-tier VPC consisting of a web-tier, application tier, and database tier was deployed using CloudFormation.
In the application tier, Linux -based EC2 instances were spread over multiple availability zones for high availability using auto-scaling groups. EBS volumes were set to take snapshots every five minutes with a 14-day retention policy.
In the database tier, Amazon Aurora was used as it could handle loss of up to two copies of data without affecting write availability and up to three copies without affecting read availability
