I was impressed with nClouds’ DevOps expertise and the application modernization solution they designed and implemented to enhance LYT’s security, high availability, and fault tolerance."
Chief Technology Officer, LYT
Because of the nature of LYT’s software and its necessary safety precautions, LYT required a modern infrastructure that facilitated communication and collaboration between product management, software development, and operations, with security enhancements for real-time alerts.
LYT was introduced to nClouds by the AWS account team. nClouds is an AWS Premier Consulting Partner with AWS-certified expertise in DevOps, SaaS, Migration, Well-Architected, and other areas that were relevant to LYT. nClouds conducted an AWS Well-Architected Framework Review (WAFR) powered by nOps. The Review identified several high-priority remediation items, encompassing the security, cost optimization, and reliability pillars of AWS Well-Architected Framework best practices. LYT’s SaaS platform is on AWS, and the company wanted to partner with nClouds to build out a modern, containerized application architecture to enhance high availability (HA), scalability, and fault tolerance for its function protocols.
nClouds migrated LYT to an Amazon ECS-based deployment platform, built out the production environment, and performed the application cutover during the migration implementation phase.
Existing applications were containerized and migrated to Amazon ECS. CI/CD pipelines were implemented in Jenkins for all services to build Docker images and push the images to Amazon ECR. Applications are deployed every time a change is made and pushed in the Atlassian Bitbucket repository. Jenkins configurations and project dependencies are installed through the Dockerfile. Monitoring and alerts are provided by Datadog, with a dashboard where LYT can check the metrics for each application. An ELK stack performs log aggregation.
All the services pull parameters from AWS Secrets Manager to manage sensitive data and pull images from Amazon ECR, where all the Docker images are stored.
Teaming with nClouds, LYT now has a modern AWS infrastructure for its SaaS platform. The project has yielded numerous benefits:
Automated CI/CD pipelines accelerate the integration, delivery, and deployment processes for faster time to market of new features.
LYT’s new infrastructure is resilient to failure and can recover without a noticeable customer impact. Measures are in place to ensure adequate performance for all tenants of the system where there are shared components. nClouds implemented strategies to mitigate scheduled downtime for deployment of new application features/versions. Scalability is supported by AWS Auto Scaling, Amazon ECS, Amazon ElastiCache for Redis, and Amazon Elasticsearch Service.
LYT’s secure base infrastructure includes an Amazon VPC, subnets, security groups using CloudFormation, and an AWS Site-to-Site VPN from the Amazon VPC to LYT’s on-prem network.
