The Challenge:

Scalability Challenges:
The client's existing infrastructure was severely limited in its ability to scale, making it difficult to accommodate sudden spikes in traffic and rapidly allocate resources as needed. This constraint hindered the company's capacity to adapt to changing demands and optimise performance.

Operational Overload:
Managing and maintaining the client's infrastructure required an enormous amount of time and resources, diverting attention away from core business activities and innovation initiatives. This operational burden hindered the company's ability to focus on strategic growth and competitiveness.

Performance Shortfalls:
The performance of the client's infrastructure applications was subpar, leading to occasional downtime and suboptimal user experiences. This resulted in decreased customer satisfaction and loyalty, ultimately impacting the company's reputation and bottom line.

Update Complexity:
As we undertook system updates to both the backend and frontend, managing the Node.js version became increasingly complex, leading to difficulties in controlling dependencies and mitigating compatibility issues. This update challenge further exacerbated the operational and performance challenges faced by the client.

The Solution:

Strategic Migration:
Following a thorough analysis of Contech Media's needs and a rigorous evaluation of available options, Reliance Cloud made the strategic decision to migrate the company's applications to AWS App Runner.

This innovative solution offered a managed container service that streamlined the deployment and scaling of web applications, allowing Reliance Cloud to redirect its focus towards developing cutting-edge solutions, rather than devoting precious resources to infrastructure management
