A CASE STUDY ON SYARAH
SYARAH DECREASED COST WHEN ADOPTED KUBERNETES SERVICE FROM AWS.
After conducting an in-depth review using the AWS Well-Architected framework, JordanClouds found several single points of failure, right-sizing inconsistencies, and unused resources across Syarah’s cloud architecture. Syarah had several workloads with different sizes, as well as idle load balancers, Elastic IP, and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances. JordanClouds adjusted utilization to realign computing demand with resource consumption and removed unused instances where appropriate. With these simple changes, Syarah was able to reduce monthly IT spend by approximately 30%.
Containerization and Orchestration Optimization
After Jordan Clouds involvement, Syarah had started to migrate certain workloads to Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Syrah’s CTO and JordanClouds Team recognize that Syarah could further optimize its EKS cluster in several ways. JordanClouds implemented AWS Auto Scaling groups to create highly available and elastic worker nodes, as well as centralized monitoring system for the cluster and centralized logging system to centralize event collection from various log sources on Kubernetes , and Syarah micro services. Syarah and JordanClouds experts also integrated AWS Appconfig Service with every micro service deployment in the CI/CD process to store sensitive application information. Moreover, JordanClouds migrated Syarah EC2 instances to a containers running in several AWS Kubernetes clusters. Through load testing and auto-scaling, JordanClouds achieved a 30% reduction in monthly expense while simultaneously increasing the reliability, security, and performance of Syarah platform.
By engaging with JordanClouds, Syarah was able to revitalize its cloud architecture without moving any workloads away from AWS. Syarah’s Cloud infrastructure is now more scalable, cost-efficient, reliable, and secure, due to the AWS features that JordanClouds implemented. Overall, Syarah was able to reduce cloud expenditures by 25%. The company is better positioned to evolve throughout the 2022 as the cloud point of sales sector continues to explode. On top of that, Syarah can easily incorporate future cloud advances into its Cloud infrastructure and innovate at will in a highly competitive industry.
