The system could effortlessly scale up or down based on the demands, ensuring optimal performance even during peak times.
AWS fully managed services eliminated the need for DPG to worry about operational overhead, allowing them to focus on content and audience engagement.
The operational burden was significantly reduced with Cloudar managed services and expertise.
“Cloudar provided us with the technical knowledge to set up the cloud environment in a fast and efficiënt way.”– SVEN VAN VLEM – HEAD OF TECHNOLOGY DPG NEWS CITY
Cloudar, as an AWS Premier Partner and a Certified Managed Services Provider, took on the challenge to revolutionize DPG’s polling system. Using AWS’s serverless architecture, Cloudar developed a robust, cloud-native system:
- API Gateway: To manage, monitor, and secure the API calls.
- Lambda: For executing the code in response to the polls, ensuring efficient processing of each request without the need for provisioning or managing servers.
- DynamoDB: To offer a fast and flexible NoSQL database service, ensuring that the high influx of data was stored securely and could be accessed rapidly.
- SQS: To decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications, ensuring that every poll taken was queued and processed.
Furthermore, Cloudar went beyond just infrastructure; they actively assisted in writing the function code, ensuring best practices were met, and the architecture was truly optimized for DPG’s unique needs.
The customer can now focus on the application and creating value to the business.
The application landscape will run faster, cheaper and also more reliable.
Automated deployments are achieved using Infrastructure-as-Code.
