How did you select this vendor?
We were looking for an experienced DevOps services provider with a thorough AWS expertise and shortlisted 6 companies based on their announced technology stack, expertise, external ratings and customer reviews.
IT Svit stood out due to being ranked as a top-performing agency on Clutch and boasting 30+ positive customer reviews there. We had technical calls with all the companies from our shortlist, and IT Svit managed to positively impress us with their expertise and attitudes, so we decided to work with them.
Describe the project in detail.
Heroku is a cost-efficient and user-friendly platform providing everything you need to write, debug and deploy code in Python, Java, Ruby, Scala, Go, Node.JS, etc. We were using its features like Heroku CI and Pipelines to build automated software delivery workflows for our customers — but Heroku lacks serverless computing features, Kubernetes cluster management, monitoring, Big Data analytics and other features that were often required by our customers.
Instead of building the product on Heroku and then transferring it to AWS to enable the needed functionality, we decided to move our development and infrastructure management operations to AWS altogether. IT Svit helped us create the roadmap for this transition, configured the AWS replacements for Heroku services we used, and then IT Svit team moved our projects to AWS seamlessly.
What was the team composition?
We worked with 2 DevOps engineers and a Team Lead.
