“We were impressed with nClouds’ recommended architecture for a unified deployment platform. They truly became an extension of Superside’s team as we implemented the migration.”


nClouds' Solution Architecture for Superside

Superside wanted a unified deployment platform to provide improved performance efficiency, enhanced security, and optimized costs for their compute workload.

Superside’s existing workload had services running in AWS Elastic Beanstalk (in multi-container Docker mode), and Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS). nClouds used HashiCorp Terraform to build the infrastructure to support apps in a serverless environment using AWS Fargate on Amazon ECS, and built a CI/CD pipeline for these services in Jenkins (replacing Atlassian Bamboo). The new Amazon ECS cluster has multi-zone availability, AWS Auto Scaling policies, and integration with AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store.
