We have the same number of staff working on AWS as we did on our previous infrastructure, but our business has more than doubled."
Chief Technology Officer, Ebury
- Needed a more flexible, cloud-based architecture to support expansion into new regions.
- Wanted to liberate its infrastructure team from time-consuming system management and provide on-demand scalability.
- Required a highly available infrastructure and the ability to develop new services quickly to meet customer requirements.
Why Amazon Web Services
- Migrated from its existing server provider to AWS, using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Elasticsearch Service, and AWS Elastic Beanstalk. It monitors resources through Amazon CloudWatch.
- To maintain high availability and data security, Ebury works across both the AWS EU (Ireland) and EU (Frankfurt) Regions. AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) allows it to control access to services.
- Amazon Redshift forms part of the company’s data analytics toolset, and by using Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS) in its nonproduction environment, it can spin up instances to enable a continuous development environment.
- Peace of mind from “phenomenal” uptime: Chief Technology Officer Toby Young says that Ebury has experienced no outages with AWS, and availability has been excellent compared with its previous supplier.
- Lean IT and happy customers: With less time spent on system admin, Ebury can scale to meet the demands of its customer base without increasing the size of its infrastructure team.
- Support for an expanding portfolio: Ebury is able to use AWS to offer software as a service to its clients, creating new business opportunities. The firm manages an entire instance of its stack on behalf of one of its customers.
