New Case Study: DevOps Delivery Velocity Overhauled with AWS Cloudformation
We have a new case study in the area of Cloud and Operations on how we used AWS Cloudformation to help a media conglomerate reduce its environment deployment time from 80 hours to 4.
Our work included:
- A comprehensive AWS infrastructure review, followed by recommendations such as a security group audit.
- Cloudformation training and knowledge transfer
- Solution documentation
AIM’s guidance helped to stabilize the client’s DevOps infrastructure by building in repeatable processes with Cloudformation templates. The engagement paid down massive technical debt and produced immediate results in terms of dramatically reduced outages and increased release velocity. Moreover, the DevOps team has increased fourfold, a fluid team no longer reliant on tribal knowledge or manual processes.
The engagement with AIM continues, with a new AIM cloud consultant assisting the DevOps team on its CI/CD venture and the original consultant advising and training the team on a regular basis to help fine-tune the new infrastructure.
