Challenge

Challenge:

Support future innovation and business growth by migrating from an on-premises environment to AWS with minimal downtime.

TapClicks was experiencing unprecedented rapid growth. The company needed to transition from its existing on-premises infrastructure to an AWS cloud-based solution. With such rapid growth and the influx of new customers, downtime was a considerable concern. TapClicks also needed disaster relief protocols for their new AWS infrastructure, the ability to adapt to new technological innovation, and the growing demands of their clientele.

Why AWS and nClouds

TapClicks selected nClouds based on its expertise in in-depth systems analysis, building an AWS infrastructure to meet its needs, and commitment to complete all the work quickly, efficiently, and with minimal downtime.

TapClicks leveraged several Amazon Web Services.

TapClicks solution stack also included additional, essential third-party tools:

  • Red Hat Ansible - An open-source IT configuration management, deployment, and orchestration tool.
  • Icinga - A monitoring system that checks the availability of network resources, notifies users of outages, and generates performance data for reporting. Scalable and extensible, Icinga can monitor large, complex environments across multiple locations.

nClouds' Solution Architecture for TapClicks

nClouds conducted a detailed analysis of the existing on-premises infrastructure and determined the existing and future requirements to make the transition as smooth as possible. Mutually agreed-upon timeframes were established. Of critical importance to TapClicks was ongoing testing throughout the process to ensure continuity and no backend issues with the new infrastructure.

nClouds created a reliable and predictable solution using Ansible automation. Since monitoring was essential to ensure the best possible service, nClouds implemented Icinga. nClouds also formulated and tested a disaster recovery solution. The migration to AWS was carried out using best practices methodology. The end result gave TapClicks a cutting-edge system adaptable to continued growth as TapClicks develops new and innovative solutions for their clients.
