Engineers can devote more time to product innovation.
Enhanced support of application layer for end customers.
Expert modernization of its application infrastructure.
Alation wanted to modernize its application by migrating it from Amazon EC2 to Amazon EKS. The company required a dual-platform system, moving some tenants from on-premises to AWS and creating a hybrid on-premises/cloud platform for others. Alation’s engineering team was stretched thin between maintaining the uptime and reliability of the environment and developing innovative new features for its application.
“I value nClouds’ expertise in maintaining and troubleshooting the production environment for our internal team and our end customers.”
Amazon EKS automatically deploys, manages, and scales containerized applications using Kubernetes on AWS. AWS Network Load Balancer automatically distributes incoming traffic across multiple targets to increase the availability of Alation’s application. Amazon Redshift runs and scales analytics on Alation’s data in seconds and automatically manages the data warehouse infrastructure. Amazon RDS automatically handles infrastructure provisioning and software maintenance. Jenkins automates CI/CD.
