Our Solution

To achieve all this, a scalable and performant NodeJS Elastic BeanStalk environment was architected. Combined with a RDS database for user data and S3 storage for asset storage served through the CDN to the end-users. The result is a highly optimized workflow where the creation, possible editing and embedding of these assets can all be done without intervention. By implementing Managed Services, Cloudar helps to operate this AWS infrastructure more efficiently and securely.
