      The client submitted this review online.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      I am the CEO of a music-tech startup. I generally oversee all technical implementations from development to server administration.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      We hired IT Svit to inspect our existing Google Cloud infrastructure, load test it, and make improvements to enable reasonable scalability.

      What were your goals for this project?

      We wanted to get a scalable infrastructure in place to support our website and mobile apps to scale effectively without an issues as we onboard more users.

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      I had some mixed experiences with previous contractors and did extensive research to find some cloud specialists. I had spotted the IT Svit team months before and they seemed to fit the bill but they were fully booked. After further discussions with their team, it was clear that they were specialists and they earned my faith in their abilities. I decided to proceed when they had availability.

      Describe the project in detail.

      The IT Svit team first inspected our existing GCP setup. They created diagrams and clearly articulated the existing setup. They then performed some initial load testing to assess baseline performance. From there, they identified bottlenecks and provided some recommendations on initial steps to improve scalability and follow best practices.

      They cleaned up some existing issues with our implementation and then they explored multiple levels of caching, implemented a CDN among other things. After they made changes they conducted additional load tests. They performance was much improved and they even set up a reusable load testing infrastructure with excellent documentation so we could reuse.

      Once we were happy with the new set up, they executed some changes to improve security of the infrastructure and set up some basic monitoring and alerting capabilities.

      What was the team composition?

      There was one primary project manager and one devops engineer. In addition to them, there were also two business leads (one technical, one operations) that would check in from time to time.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      Prior to hiring IT Svit, I had wasted about 6 weeks on a team that I had hired to improve our GCP setup and scalability. IT Svit was extremely skilled, efficient and communicated extremely well (like an extension of our team with great project management tools).

      While it is hard to recall the exact numbers, the improvement in performance was remarkable and the security of the infrastructure was much improved. In general, I am a lot more at ease now with our infrastructure, because of the work of IT Svit.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      The workflow was excellent. We used Slack for daily communication and Asana for managing progress on tasks. They managed the process very well and were very diligent.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      It is obvious that they are experts in Cloud Computing, DevOps and Server administration. Their skills are impressive and you will not waste your time with them. In addition, they were extremely professional in their management of the tasks and the engineer that I had assigned was excellent. He was extremely skilled, nice and hard-working.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      Due to their limited resources we had to primarily work on a full-time basis in spurts. The one thing that I would look for in the future is more flexibility to have their support on a part-time basis for a mixture of continuity and affordability.

      The client submitted this review online.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      I own an affiliate marketing business that operates a network of websites in the financial market.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      IT Svit were hired to help improve the efficiency and efficacy of our Kubernetes cluster hosted on Google Cloud Platform.

      What were your goals for this project?

      1. Reduce server costs
      2. Improve server infrastructure
      3. Implement cluster monitoring
      4. Documentation and education of those tasks
      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      We reached out to a number of companies through the Upwork platform. IT Svit responded quickly and were able to demonstrate a great deal of understanding about our project and its goals. Their particular experience with Google Kubernetes Engine helped with the selection.

      Describe the project in detail.

      The project required proper allocation of resources for a dozen+ workloads in our Google Cloud Platform k8s cluster. The vendor was responsible for analysing potential allocation issues and appropriately reducing wasted resources. The vendor was also responsible for implementing monitoring services for the k8s cluster using Prometheus and the Grafana GUI. The vendor reported twice weekly to help keep us informed at all times.

      What was the team composition?

      The vendor provided a project manager, devops engineer and a senior member of the team who was very fluent in English and the technicalities of the project. All 3 members of the team joined each call where every possible question could be answered an discussed.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      The project with IT Svit improved our management of our GCP cluster to no end. With proper alerting, our team is now able to detect issues before they arise and cluster monitoring allows us effectively diagnose and resolve issues. Resource limiting was setup to ensure that each workload would not soak up memory or CPU while also alerting us if issues were detected.

      Total costs were not reduced, however, it transpired in the project that our machines were already the minimum that were viable. Instead, we were able to improve all other aspects of the cluster infrastructure whilst keeping ongoing server costs the same.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      Workflow was mostly done through Trello and web calls. It worked very effectively.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      The company felt like a well-oiled machine. At no point did I have any concerns that the project wasn't moving at the correct speed. I was kept informed at all times and this fact gave me reassurance that the team would deliver effectively (and they did).

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      I would have preferred to have more time devoted to education around the changes that were made and helping with my own understanding of some of the technical aspects of the work they were doing.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      IT Svit is responsible for support and maintenance of our servers, troubleshooting and any new implementations. We have on-premise data center along with OVH.

      What were your goals for this project?

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      I worked with IT Svit at my previous company and had very positive experience with them. So when the question about infrastructure management came up in Silverstream, I reached out to IT Svit for help.

      Describe the project in detail.

      IT Svit investigated our current infrastructure and server set up, then came up with custom SLA and detailed plan for support. After we agreed upon terms, we connected with IT Svit software tool to keep track of tickets and reports. I'm keeping close communication with their project manager to stay updated.

      What was the team composition?

      From IT Svit's side there were System administration team lead (responsible for all the technical side), technical writer (created a technical documentation) and project manager (responsible for the communication).

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      We've got much more stable infrastructure after IT Svit took over the administration. We don't have to worry about outage or any crushes. This is especially important for us during the high demand season or during promotions.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      Workflow was quite smooth. During the project I kept close communication with IT Svit's PM and received regular reports.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      I'm a project manager of a company that uses emerging tech to manufacture smart roofs.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      As our team began to grow very fast and we were able to engage in multiple projects at once, our system admins were not able to deploy all the required environments timely. We tried to use AWS features, but it was very costly because of several mistakes we made, as we lacked the appropriate experience.

      What were your goals for this project?

      We wanted to optimize our existing AWS infrastructure, automate the software development processes and use our cloud investments most cost-efficiently.

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      We were searching for best practices of DevOps workflow implementation and found a pretty decent description of this strategy in an article on Hackernoon, published by IT Svit CEO, Vladimir Fedak. We contacted them and they showed an in-depth understanding of the challenges we faced and offered solutions for them at once.

      Describe the project in detail.

      We needed someone to configure the AWS pipeline for CI/CD features. We needed our Terraform and Kubernetes deployments automated, as well as configuring continuous monitoring for our environments. They handled the full scope of the tasks we needed to be done. They automated the server provisioning for all of our projects and enabled us to monitor them through smart alerting using ELK stack, Prometheus & Grafana or AWS CloudWatch.

      What was the team composition?

      We worked with a System administrator and DevOps engineer.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      Our infrastructure is now managed and deployed automatically, using Terraform and Kubernetes. We have an in-depth understanding of the system performance at any time due to the smart monitoring system they designed and implemented. I would say the project was a complete success.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      IT Svit has ample experience with IT outsourcing services, and we knew it firsthand. They quickly established communication channels between our teams in Slack and on Skype, and their specialists were always in touch with us. They had many solutions ready for any issue we came across, so we were able to deal with every challenge quite efficiently.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      They did not promise anything supreme. They just delivered the services we needed, on time and at affordable prices. Most importantly, their experience helped them foresee most of the issues and solve them proactively, instead of dealing with the consequences.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      I really cannot think of anything.

Professional and experienced, IT Svit leverages its expertise in AWS to implement new ideas within a short timeframe. Their proficiency sets them apart from other providers.

      The client submitted this review online.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      My name is Vladimir, I am Product Owner @MKE company. We are engaged in the new equipment development (including equipment for severe operating conditions) its production, complex projects, engineering, maintenance in operation.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      We required a team of professionals to automate setup procedure, remove bugs and errors in deployment flow, using Ansible, Terraform and AWS services such as Lambda, AWS Rekognition.

      What were your goals for this project?

      Our goals was to resolve issues with our legacy code and infrastructure. And prepare to the next phase (Q1 2020) which is migration of all our services to the cloud.

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      We wanted to find a team of professionals in Ukraine. One of our colleagues worked with IT Svit previously and recommended them. Shortly after a couple of calls, we decided to go with them.

      Describe the project in detail.

      IT Svit provided DevOps engineers and helped us do the following:

      • Create Terraform manifests for IaaC
      • Write Ansible scripts to automate the deployment process
      • Create different deployment procedures for different application configurations
      • Create developer documentation on deployment process and technical points

      What was the team composition?

      We worked with a Team Lead and 2 DevOps engineers.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      After our infrastructure began to operate based on Terraform manifests, we experienced a significant boost in the efficiency of operations, and automating the deployment helped a lot.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      Their Team Lead is very proficient with AWS, Terraform and Jenkins, he was able to grasp the core idea of the project at once and offered working solutions from the get-go. It could not have worked better. We communicated regularly in Slack, so we were always abreast of the project progress.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      Their technical knowledge is profound, and they are able to come up with working solutions very quickly.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      While they were able to form a sufficient team and meet all our project goals so far, the Team Lead is not always available as the team carries out multiple projects at once. They could definitely grow a little more.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      My name is Olga, I am the Head of People Operations at AGRO Holding (Ukraine and U.K)

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      We had to move to AWS from our dedicated server infrastructure due to scaling up our operations. We wanted to make use of Amazon features and web services like Amazon Pipeline and other open-source tools. We also needed help with dockerizing our applications.

      What were your goals for this project?

      - Audit of our existing infrastructure and workflows - Building cloud-native AWS pipeline for our projects - Moving our workloads, data and applications to AWS - Tutoring our team on using Terraform, Kubernetes and Docker containers

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      We tried to find a DevOps specialist in-house but had no success for nearly 3 months. We did not want to work with AWS support engineers or promoted partners to avoid vendor lock-in. So, we decided to find a reliable IT services agency providing DevOps services with lots of positive customer reviews. This is how we found IT Svit on Clutch and after a technical call with their Team Lead we were sure they are able to deliver the results we needed, so we signed a contract.

      Describe the project in detail.

      We started the contract in August 2019 and as of the end of September we have the following results: - They assessed our infrastructure and software development processes and designed a full replica of our system using AWS and open-source cloud-native analogs. - They moved our data and applications to the cloud and performed a seamless migration so that our team experienced no interruptions in work. - IT Svit produced detailed developer documentation on the architecture of our AWS infrastructure and tutorials on using it. They were also very helpful in explaining some particular details to our developers. Now IT Svit provides ongoing maintenance and monitoring of our AWS infrastructure.

      What was the team composition?

      IT Svit provided us with DevOps engineer, System administrator and Project manager. It was important for us to keep a transparent communication during the project so IT Svit suggested assigning Project Manager Vladimir which turned out great.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      Our new software ecosystem is cost-efficient, works flawlessly and helped us speed up the development of our projects significantly. We would not be able to achieve the same results on our own.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      They were very attentive to our requirements and offered the most suitable solutions for every case. Their PM and Team Lead were very attentive and precise on what they were doing and why, so we were informed of the project progress at all times.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      IT Svit clearly knows how to make AWS tick. They had ready solutions for nearly all the challenges we encountered.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      It turns out they do not have the same level of efficiency with managing Google Cloud or MS Azure. But I am sure they will improve in that area with more successful projects.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      My name is Denis, I am the CTO at an Amsterdam-based startup. Our product allows checking any website pages for errors and creating comparisons after the release in just a few clicks and provides simple reports with explanations.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      We secured the next round of funding and began to grow. Our project evolution demanded us to find some Big Data/ML/AI expertise and we had to ensure stable product performance.

      What were your goals for this project?

      We wanted to ensure that Quokka was accessible under heavy workloads, which meant going for the cloud scalability. We also wanted to implement Big Data/ AI/ ML algorithms instead of basic scripts we had at that moment, to ensure the system works better the more it is used.

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      We googled for Big Data/ML/AI expertise and found multiple references, so we had to select the best fit based on some customer feedback or reputable rating. IT Svit had a great record history at Clutch, so they made it to our shortlist. After a technical call, we were impressed with their in-depth understanding of all the challenges and the obvious technical expertise, so we signed a contract.

      Describe the project in detail.

      We wanted our site to be deployed at AWS and use AWS CloudFront as CDN and AWS ML/AI services and Amazon RDS for back-end operations. However, IT Svit has calculated some expense projections and showcased that a bespoke Big Data solution would be more cost-efficient.

      The main benefits they proposed were the significant decrease in false-positive error reports due to the correct ML model training, as well as the ability to launch testing in several browser-test instances simultaneously due to running them as Dockerized microservices atop a Kubernetes cluster.

      IT Svit team has built a simple and elegant AWS infrastructure, using Amazon EC2 instances, S3 storage, Kubernetes cluster and Docker test-instances, PostgreSQL as the main database and Amazon RDS for scalability. Instead of using AWS AI/ML services, they deployed and trained a bespoke AI algorithm in Python, which checked the website snapshots before and after the release and highlighted the differences and errors.

      What was the team composition?

      2 Python developers, one of which was a Team Lead and 1 DevOps engineer

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      We are now able to process thousands of requests at any given second while securely keeping snapshot collections for each user separately. The partnership with IT Svit allowed us to achieve all the goals we wanted and the team provides an ongoing platform improvement.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      As one of our Python developers also was a Team Lead, he was able to delegate the tasks and report on the progress fluently. He showed an in-depth understanding of what is best for our project and his suggestions helped avoid several potential issues in time. We had regular Skype calls and he was always in touch in chat.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      They did not boast and did not promise any wonders. They simply delivered what we needed, executed it flawlessly, on time and under budget. There were no cases where they walked the extra mile for us — but I am sure they would have done it, should the need arise.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      English is not their native language, nor is it mine, but we were able to communicate and discuss all project-related questions with ease. A little more language fluency would definitely not hurt them.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      My name is Dmitry, I am the CEO/Founder @ HireUkraine. We provide CRM/HRM/ job portal development. Our main product is a job portal for IT specialists that provides full anonymity of recruitment to ensure the safety of mind for all the parties involved. This platform is quite successful on Ukrainian market.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      When we launched our product, the infrastructure with one server cluster was appropriate, but as the numbers of users grew, it became obvious that we needed more scalability. We had to move the infrastructure and workflows to the cloud and ensure the operations were reliable, scalable and easily assessed.

      What were your goals for this project?

      We required a cloud transition to AWS from our legacy servers, site reliability engineering (SRE) services to build a scalable system, cloud monitoring solution design and implementation and CI/CD implementation for ongoing platform development.

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      We browsed the web and searched for teams with appropriate skills and positive customer reviews. IT Svit has a great standing on Clutch, which helped them make it to our shortlist, along with some other teams from Ukraine. However, during the technical call they showed an in-depth understanding of the project requirements and possible complications, and explained the ways they would overcome these challenges. Deep technical expertise combined with confidence and professionalism sold them to us, and their convenient time zone was very important to us, as well as cultural fit and a possibility to meet in person should the need be.

      Describe the project in detail.

      We had to assess the current infrastructure and product development process, and find the ways to improve it or redesign it correctly from scratch. Then IT Svit team had to build the appropriate cloud infrastructure and move our workloads to AWS. Finally, they had to configure security, monitoring and smart alerting of our production environments, as well as building continuous integration and delivery workflows for our ongoing platform development.

      What was the team composition?

      The SRE architect analyzed the pattern of our workloads and came up with a plan to build scalable infrastructure that best suited our needs. With the help of 2 other DevOps engineers, he built a cloud Kubernetes cluster using AWS Load balancer and auto-scaling groups, hidden behind a bastion host. After that they installed and configured a monitoring/alerting system based on ELK stack and Sumologic, with automated alerting to Slack. This made their work transparent to us, as we are able to monitor their operations unobtrusively. Lastly, they configured Docker/Jenkins/ Gitlab CI/ Ansible pipeline that greatly reduced the time and effort required to deliver new product features for our developers, and helped us on some occasions, when our internal team lacked the needed skills.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      IT Svit team completed all the project tasks on time and now provide ongoing 8*5 support during the business hours, both for the production environment and for new feature development. They are so cost-efficient that we plan to increase our collaboration and hire them as an outsourcing software development provider for our next project. This will help us consolidate our internal resources and grow our main product quicker.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      Their Project Manager Vladimir was always in touch and reported twice a week on the project progress. They dealt with all the tasks on time and were always very clear on what they are doing and why.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      They do what they promise, they do it on time. They will walk the extra mile if needed, which saves lots of time and money in the long run. They have proactively solved several issues, which could have resulted in major problems, should they have been left unaddressed.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      They have incredible technical expertise, but it is not backed up by certifications. Should they have been AWS-certified, we would spend less time discussing their suggestions and would have shortened the migration period even further. This is not critical, however, as they have proven to be quite dependable in all things cloud-related.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      I am Konstantin, CTO @ Spaceport company. We are a software developer and IT services provider from Ukraine.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire IT Svit?

      We are mostly providing MVP development and were primarily deploying our projects to Google Cloud platform due to the capabilities of the Google App Engine and Google Kubernetes Engine. However, when one of our customers decided to continue the partnership with us and wanted to move the product to AWS in order to use CloudFront and Amazon Aurora, we had to get the cloud consulting and design a GCP to AWS migration.

      What were your goals for this project?

      We needed to rebuild our software development, testing and deployment routines to utilize AWS cloud components instead of Google App Engine tools. This had to be done with as little interference with our workflows as possible.

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      We were choosing between 5 IT service companies in Ukraine and found lots of positive IT Svit reviews on Clutch, which helped us to decide to contact the team. They showed an in-depth understanding of all underwater reefs and potential challenges of GCP to AWS migration during the technical call and asked questions that led us to make several decisions that saved us a ton of money in the long run.

      Describe the project in detail.

      We had to reconfigure the workflows that were built to use Google Cloud Platform services like GKE, Google BigQuery, Google App Engine. Instead, we needed to build CI/CD pipelines using open-source tools like Terraform, Kubernetes and Docker and AWS-specific tools like Amazon Pipeline. This had to be done smoothly in order not to disrupt the ongoing work on other processes, but quite fast to meet the customer’s deadlines.

      What was the team composition?

      We worked with 2 DevOps engineers and 2 Python developers, who provided infrastructure design and database architecture implementation.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

      Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

      We have moved from GCP to AWS in quite a short time without stopping our normal operations. The transition was executed flawlessly and helped us reduce time-to-market for this project by 40%. In addition, using VPC peering to combine the resources of several accounts helped us save around 50% on infrastructure costs for this customer.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      Their PM and Team Lead were very informative and constructive, they always came up with the best solutions for every step and frankly reported on all the challenges. We were in touch through regular Skype and Zoom calls and via Slack, so we always had our hands on the pulse of the project progress.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      They did not pose themselves as super-professionals or unique specialists. They just showed their professionalism through their actions and delivered on their promises. All the tasks were done on time, which is quite rare for IT outsourcing — and we did not have to fix any issues, so they clearly know what they are doing.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      I cannot recall a single reason to complain.
