The most effective way to reenable growth and scalability was migration to a cloud-based microservice architecture. Market success gave it a strong impulse for further development. But the scalability limit was reached soon, as rapid growth brought new technological challenges:
Further development of the product was considerably restrained by its own success. The most effective way to resolve the issue was migration to a cloud-based microservice architecture.
A critical requirement that defined the whole migration strategy was to minimize downtime. The product had to work frictionlessly, accommodating new users and introducing new features during the entire migration period.
We’ve developed and implemented a strategy that ensures the product’s unrestrained growth and scalability by:
We’ve designed a hybrid cloud architecture solution and conducted a smooth gradual transition, keeping the solution stable during the migration process.
To optimize infrastructure management, we’ve introduced the IaaC approach. Cloud edge locations were leveraged to reduce latency for distant international users.
We’ve revised the testing strategy as a whole and implemented automated integration, smoke and regression testing. This has allowed us to shorten the delivery cycle and make it predictable and easily manageable. As a result, we’ve enabled the progression to transparent and precise release planning.
These changes have resulted in significant optimization of operational costs and re-enabled client acquisition, which has led to considerable revenue growth.
