Health PlanG Chooses Connectria to Manage a Highly Scalable AWS Environment
St. Louis, MO (April 30, 2014)- Health PlanG, an Illinois based wellness firm, was looking to conduct a survey about better mind, body and spirit through one of its partners. This was a completely new project for the company so foreseeing the volume of responses was a challenge. If the target audience was receptive to the questionnaire Health PLanG could receive thousands of submissions in a matter of days. A limited budget narrowed down the possible IT solutions, and acquiring the hardware in-house was out of the question. This is when Health PLanG turned to AWS, which was the most logical platform to utilize for this effort. It offers the just the right scalability options needed. As the survey submissions on the site spikes, EC2 instances can be easily ramped up or down as needed. As the project grows the environment can easily be expanded with new instances on the fly. Costs can be kept in check as Health PlanG would only be charged an hourly rate.
Health PlanG had limited internal expertise with AWS which is why it selected Connectria to spin-up, manage and monitor its 4 AWS instances (2 production, 1 test and 1 pre-production.) Connectria stood out from competitors due to its 17+ years managing and supporting the very same hardware used for this project as well as its strong expertise managing AWS environments. Health PlanG was also very comfortable with the fact that Connectria has dedicated teams of engineers for each technology it supports, making its team readily available for technical questions.
