Sortly

Sortly partnered with 9Acts to containerize their applications and migrate to Amazon ECS. Also, they want to manage their infra through infrastructure as a code.

Summary

Sortly was in the process of streamlining its processes for maintaining Amazon WebServices (AWS) infrastructure and allowing its development environments to come up as needed. The need for these environments is high, so it’s important to keep them secure, clean, and highly available. They also need to be secure and cost-effective. With 9Acts support and expertise, Sortly migrated their applications to Amazon ECS with high availability at all layers and achieved streamlined processes for infrastructure provisioning with Terraform.

The Challenge

Sortly needed to containerize their application and migrate from Elastic Beanstalk to Amazon ECS.

Sortly also needs the application to be highly available and scalable, and on top of managing AWS with industry best practices.

The Solution

9Acts evaluated their AWS environment and automated the entire AWS environment with Terraform, including documentation for developers to spin up their environments whenever needed. They also migrated their application to Amazon ECS Fargate in multiple AZs with AWS autoscaling to scale applications based on demand. 9Acts also made the Sortly environment more secure by implementing high availability, threat detection and protection, encryption at rest and in transit, web application firewalls for their apps, purchase reservations to get cost savings and billing alarms.
