Migration to AWS cloud

Instamotion

About the Customer

Created with simplicity in mind, it’s a platform that officially ends the time-robbing and tedious procedure of buying your dream car online. After conducting a thorough analysis and tests on car technical characteristics, it’s available for anyone as an excellent quality-price option.

InstaMotion platform is where customers can count on user-friendly navigation, high-quality customer support service, and seamless order and delivery procedure. Reality is better than expectations here.

Business CHALLENGE

The business challenge InstaMotion was faced with was the decreased delivery efficiency. Poor code quality distinctly slowed down the progress with functionality implementation and made the software unstable and difficult to modify. Apart from that, InstaMotion's existing Heroku-based infrastructure didn’t meet business requirements and our client considered migration to AWS as a cost-effective solution that promised a seamless deployment process and increased productivity of the development team.

Choosing Opinov8 as a technology partner brought a big team of innovation seekers together to deliver value.

About the Customer

Code rewrite

Invest your time in creating a new, or spend it on fixing an old. It depends on business objectives. When debugging became more challenging and the platform wasn’t running efficiently, Opinov8 suggested a cost-effective solution to successfully rewrite code from scratch to implement new user requirements.

Heroku to AWS

InstaMotion needed access to a more custom and scalable environment that could meet high computational demands, so having the AWS-certified DevOps specialists, Opinov8, assisted in migrating off Heroku. In addition to stability and affordability, a key benefit of migrating to AWS was the security reason, as the business could own its data for all 100%,
including the ability to encrypt it, move it, and manage the date of expiry.

Adopting AWS ECS

Instamotion initiated a migration to a microservice architecture, leveraging Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) for container orchestration. This architectural shift from a monolithic setup to ECS-facilitated microservices allowed for enhanced scalability through decentralised service deployment. Migration introduced complexities in service orchestration and inter-service communication, demanding robust solutions for load balancing and network traffic management. Transition optimised resource allocation and failure isolation, significantly improving system resilience and response times within a dynamic operational environment.

BUSINESS VALUE

We have delivered a stable and revenue-generative platform that shows flawless performance, can easily withstand market changes, and is maneuverable on all sharp turns. Opinov8 team covers the testing part to assess the overall product usability, security, and compatibility.

By building the platform on microservices, the software is broken down into multiple component services that can be independently updated or adjusted without redeploying the entire application; thus, managing bug fixes and feature releases became seamless and faster. So, in case something fails, the whole platform won’t go down.
There are still many plans ahead with InstaMotion, so Opinov8 will keep introducing new ideas and best practices to derive the best result.
