Case Study January 10, 2019

Digital Marketing and Design Firm

Challenge

The customer runs a very successful Digital Marketing firm with a large number of clients and has been a long-term partner of WSM. The customer realized that hosting customer applications in a legacy hosting provider was too limiting in terms of being able to provide market-leading services. The customer chose AWS as the right environment for their customers but did not yet have the internal expertise to deploy and migrate workloads to AWS.

Solution

WSM began migrating new environments from legacy hosting providers to AWS as per the customer’s requirements. WSM built custom VPCs using CloudFormation Templates and migrating instances based on EC2 and RDS, as well as leveraging other services such as Fargate and ECS.

Results

The customer very quickly saw the value of AWS and the ease of scaling the environment to meet their customer’s requirements. Furthermore, the customer was able to leverage AWS native service to reduce the administrative overhead of managing the environment.
