gleerups

Gleerups scales seamlessly to handle three times its normal traffic

Digital educational publisher Gleerups Utbildning (Gleerups) is a Sweden-based educational technology (EdTech) organization. Gleerups published its first textbooks in Lund, Sweden in 1826. Today, it provides learning materials digitally. Hundreds of thousands of students and teachers from tens of thousands of schools use the Gleerups platform every week.

Amid the global shift to online-learning due to COVID-19, Gleerups experienced huge spikes in users accessing its platform. Using Amazon Web Services (AWS), Gleerups scaled up to handle the increase in traffic, which allowed students across Sweden to stay on top of their studies.

Before 2014, the organization hosted its digital content with a smaller provider. However, as Gleerups grew, and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks threatened uptime, Gleerups knew it needed a more robust, scalable solution.

Gleerups’s technical teams looked at major cloud service providers for the most reliable service with the best levels of data protection. Of these, the team determined AWS offered the quickest path to value, and Gleerups was able to migrate in a few weeks. Many of its staff had experience with AWS, and those who didn’t could quickly get up to speed with available documentation, and adoption was cost-effective too.

By automating IT administration tasks using AWS, Gleerups gained the reliability and scalability it needed, and provided its team with more time to focus on building features rather than managing infrastructure. For example, the organization relies on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) to detect and replace unhealthy nodes and handle patching automatically.

Migrating to AWS helped the organization adapt to changing needs and scale to meet demand as traffic to Gleerups tripled.

“Knowing we had a solid foundation in AWS meant we could concentrate on helping schools get the most out of digital learning. There’s no way we could have done this with our previous provider.”

- Gent Wennmo, Project Manager for Digital Development and Chief Systems Officer, Gleerups Utbildning
