(Reduction in Database Costs)
GCP to AWS in a 3-day timeframe
(Efficient Migration with Minimal Downtime)
ACE Online faced problems in their GCP setup with costly over-provisioned SQL databases, limited availability, and wasted Redis resources. Frequent VM crashes and downtime due to missing load balancers aggravated the situation.
Deployed Amazon RDS SQL server (db.r5.large) with 100 GB storage in private subnets, ensuring multi-AZ setup for 99.99% availability and scheduled backups for disaster recovery.
Configured AWS Windows EC2 t3a.xlarge server for client applications in autoscaling and load-balanced environment, maintaining 99.99% availability during peak hours over the last two months.
Utilized Elastic Cache for Redis (cache.m5.large) to reduce latency while implementing auto-scaling for Amazon EC2 Windows servers with Microsoft IIS and .NET core support to ensure optimal performance.
Enhanced security through AWS SSM for secure Amazon EC2 connections, AWS IAM permissions for resource access control, and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for AWS accounts.
Leveraged AWS GuardDuty for intelligent threat detection and AWS CloudTrail for comprehensive API activity tracking.
Implemented budgets with alerts for cost control and utilized a range of AWS services.
Efficient database migration and right-sized Amazon EC2 instances led to 99.99% availability, lowered costs, improved response times, and a secure environment, driving business growth through enhanced user experience.
