Overcome time-consuming obstacles for testing at the end of development sprints, to support the rapid growth of its business.

5AM Solutions was experiencing rapid growth across all areas of its organization and needed to shorten the time required to complete testing at the end of the development sprint. The company wanted to create a separate environment for each of its branches to ensure maximum quality and needed to comply with strict guidelines to protect their customers’ private data.


nClouds' Solution Architecture for 5AM Solutions

nClouds implemented AWS CloudFormation to automate 5AM Solutions’ infrastructure, an AWS Auto Scaling group to improve performance, AWS ECS for a secure environment, and Jenkins for continuous integration and delivery.

AWS CloudFormation built new environments with each pull request. nClouds built Jenkins on AWS ECS using Groovy script to create images with Git SHA and push settings to AWS ECS. Jenkins agents were scaled automatically based on the pull request.
