Managing a Successful Business Transition with AWS
By Harsh Sood, CTO, Fareportal
Fareportal’s engineering staff had minimal time to prepare for such a labor-intensive move, full of complexities and scale.
Our flagship website CheapO air receives thousands of flight searches and bookings every day and can’t afford any downtime
To ensure everything on both, our CheapOair and OneTravel websites was running smoothly as we were moving the complex infrastructure, we decided to implement Amazon Web Services for the duration of the data center move. With a very short turn-around, we needed a solution that was quick and painless for our engineering staff to implement and would ensure 100 percent operations for our customers.
Within a day, Amazon Web Services was up and running and helped the Fareportal engineering team get through a busy and stressful time with ease and with 100 percent up time.
• Use AWS as a back-up method, especially during transitional times such as a data center move, office move, hyper growth period or a special promotion that drives more traffic to your e-commerce site.
• Use AWS if easy and quick set-up is a critical priority.
• AWS is easy to scale, so you can adjust your implementation as your business needs change.
• AWS allows any business to conduct uninterrupted business and e-commerce operations while dealing with business-critical changes, such as conducting a larger data center move.
