About the project
Governance.com is looking to deploy their applications in the cloud to provide a SaaS offering for their end customers.
Moreover, Governance.com has a strong need to onboard new customers in a short period of time, meaning that the spawn of a customer tenant must be automated as much as possible.
To ease the automation, the application is baked in several Docker containers, relying on a shared file system and a PostgreSQL database.
Arηs Spikeseed proposes to host and operate the software on Amazon Web Services (AWS) leveraging multiple managed services.
The solution designed and implemented to deploy the SaaSification approach is made of:
Creation of Infrastructure-as-Code Terraform templates to automate the infrastructure deployment and replication process
AWS EKS to deploy secure Kubernetes clusters on AWS avoiding manually installing Kubernetes on EC2 compute instances while benefiting from AWS built-in infrastructure such as VPC, Load Balancing, Auto Scaling Group, NAT Gateways, etc
AWS WAF to protect front facing components, exposed to various malicious attacks (DDoS, exploits, …)
AWS ECR to upload artifacts and trigger the execution of the CI/CD pipeline thereby implementing a container rolling update deployment strategy
Docker to easily run deployments
Knowledge transfer from Spikeseed to Governance.com team throughout the project
The Terraform templates are ready to replicate the environment “on demand”
Spikeseed provides continuous assistance out of its “on demand assistance” service center
What the customer says...
Our financial industry clients have very high requirements on security and reliability but are also under pressure to deal with regulatory concerns fast. To be able to offer our clients with a highly secure and flexible SaaS solution we needed an infrastructure partner with in-depth knowledge of how to achieve that on AWS, combined with a hands-on mentality. Arhs offers us the exact combination of flexibility, expertise and PSF certified operations we and our clients need. Arhs has helped us implement the best possible hosting infrastructure for our regulated clients and continues to be a valued partner in refining our hosting and infrastructure strategy.
