Hyperscaling for Global Success: Leveraging the power of AWS and Unleashing Lightning-fast deployments with base2Services

It's my second time working with base2Services to fill the DevOps needs for my startups and both experiences have been absolutely stellar. The onboarding process was very quick and within a few weeks we were migrated to AWS with a fully working CI pipeline.

A bit about Carbon Diet Coach

Carbon Diet Coach is a science-based nutrition app designed by the team of nutrition experts at Reform LLC. The app has a global user base and is available in the App Store and Google Play in many countries.

What Carbon Diet Coach needed

The Carbon Diet Coach (Carbon) application was experiencing rapid user growth. To accommodate this increase and achieve scalability, the application needed to be migrated from Digital Ocean to AWS. Additionally, the manual and time-consuming process of application deployments and environment management necessitated the implementation of end-to-end automated deployments for both the application and infrastructure.

How base2Services delivered

To address the requirements, base2Services embarked on a migration of the Carbon Diet Coach application from Digital Ocean. The focus was on implementing infrastructure-as-code for the solution while adhering to AWS architecture and security best practices. The following key initiatives were implemented:

  1. Containerization using ECS Fargate
    The application was migrated and containerized leveraging AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS) using the Serverless Fargate launch type. This containerization approach facilitated efficient resource management, enabled scalability, and simplified deployment processes.
  2. Infrastructure-as-Code
    The Carbon app infrastructure was re-architected as infrastructure-as-code, enabling consistent provisioning of Development (Dev) and Production (Prod) environments. This approach ensured that deployments were efficient, predictable, and easily reproducible.
  3. Multi-AZ Architecture
    A Multi-AZ (Availability Zone) architecture was implemented to enhance system resilience and fault tolerance.
  4. Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD)
    Automated deployment pipelines were established to streamline the release cycle of both application and infrastructure code. CI/CD practices enabled faster and more efficient delivery of updates and new features, reducing time-to-market and enhancing agility.
  5. Environment Monitoring and Management
    base2Services implemented robust monitoring and management capabilities to ensure the stability and optimal performance of the carbon application. This included proactive monitoring of key metrics, automated scaling, and timely alerts for efficient issue resolution.

Working with the base2Services team is awesome because they take the time to understand the business and help make decisions together about where to focus resources to make sure we have high availability, growth capabilities, and effective cost management.
