Challenge

Challenge:

Maintain the stability, reliability, and availability of ēdn’s AWS infrastructure.

Why AWS and nClouds

ēdn wanted AWS-certified experts as the first point of contact to handle support calls. Their CTO had used nClouds’ services when he was at another company. When he moved to ēdn, he contacted nClouds to provide 24/7 Support Services to maintain the uptime and reliability of their AWS infrastructure.

ēdn leverages several Amazon Web Services:

  • Amazon API Gateway (API Gateway) - Makes it easy for ēdn’s developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale.
  • Amazon CloudWatch (CloudWatch) - Monitors applications, responds to system-wide performance changes, optimizes resource utilization, and provides a unified view of operational health.
  • Amazon DynamoDB - A key-value and document database that delivers single-digit millisecond performance at any scale.
AWS Partner
  • AWS CloudFormation (CloudFormation) - Allows ēdn to treat its infrastructure as code, automate operations, and bring up new environments.
  • AWS CodePipeline - A fully managed continuous delivery service that helps ēdn automate the build, test, and deploy phases of release pipelines to rapidly and reliably deliver features and infrastructure updates.
  • AWS Lambda (Lambda) - Enables ēdn to run code without provisioning or managing servers. Pay only for the compute time consumed — there is no charge when code is not running.
  • AWS IoT Core - A managed cloud service that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices. It can support billions of devices and trillions of messages, and can process and route those messages to AWS endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely.

ēdn’s solution stack also includes additional, essential third-party tools:

  • CircleCI - A continuous integration and delivery platform (CI/CD) that makes it easy for ēdn to rapidly build and release quality software at scale.
