RESULTS

Performance enhanced by 40X

The project

The client was confronted with two sensitive issues: first, their website crashed when a very low number of simultaneous users accessed their solution, and second, they had no time to redesign the architecture accordingly. So a lift-and-shift approach presented as a good migration strategy for them.

The objectives

$

Find a solution so that the client doesn’t need to redesign their architecture

$

Address the site’s existing performance issues by implementing an auto-scale solution using Azure as the underlying platform

Making the move to cloud

R

Avaelgo has helped the customer migrate their highly popular website to Azure.

R

We helped configure the system to auto-scale as needed, in order to be able to handle the estimated/expected peak loads of thousands of users.

The results

40X

Enhanced performance

On the old hosting platform, the site would simply crash when faced even with a very low number of simultaneous users/sessions.

After the move to Azure and the front-end auto-scale changes, the site can now easily handle 40 times the initial number of users before it starts to run into performance issues.

Scalablility & efficiency

The lift and shift method of migrating the solution into the Cloud was a quick and easy way to achieve some of the best cloud computing benefits: scalability, efficiency & improved security

Migrating other workloads

The success of the project led to the customer deciding to migrate other workloads in Azure as well, in an attempt to gain a better workload consolidation, increased cost savings and better security by making use of Azure Platform-as-a-Service offerings.
