Need for cloud security and serverless architecture

OperationsRx faced critical technical challenges stemming from inadequate cloud security measures and the need to centralize their infrastructure. They sought a robust solution to safeguard sensitive data, comply with industry regulations, and streamline operations. Transitioning from on-premises to cloud-based solutions, they encountered obstacles such as slow migration, manual deployment, and the absence of a CI/CD pipeline.

“Our cloud journey with AWS and nClouds has helped us to reduce our client onboarding from three months to a few days and reduce the cost to the customers by hundreds of thousands of dollars. That is competitive advantage.”

– Alex MacPherson, Director of Technology, OperationsRx


nClouds' Solution Architecture for OperationsRx

To address OperationsRx technical challenges, nClouds utilized AWS services to provide a comprehensive solution. This solution included AWS CodeSuite, Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), and AWS Fargate.

AWS CodeSuite is a collection of fully managed continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) services provided by AWS. The suite includes a range of tools and services that helped OperationsRx automate the software development lifecycle, from code building and testing to deployment and monitoring.

nClouds utilized Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and AWS Fargate to implement a serverless architecture that allowed OperationsRx to scale its workloads quickly and efficiently. This architecture provided a more streamlined and cost-effective approach to managing the firm’s infrastructure, as it only paid for the resources it used.

OperationsRx previously leveraged Microsoft SQL Server to store all data in the backend. nClouds helped OperationsRx with its migration project, separating everything into one account each and implementing multiple environments. For the relational database, it chose Amazon RDS for SQL Server, which provided low maintenance costs and enabled multiregion and multiaccount backups. This allowed for enhanced security and disaster recovery capabilities for OperationsRx.
