In today’s digital landscape, businesses understand the importance of optimizing their cloud infrastructure to achieve greater efficiency and security. Lepaya, a prominent company in the cloud services domain, partnered with TechNative to undertake a comprehensive transformation of their AWS cloud environment.

the project

Lepaya recognized the need to improve their AWS cloud environment to maximize efficiency and bolster security. They faced several key challenges, including reducing cloud maintenance time, gaining better control over their infrastructure, enhancing security measures, lowering database costs, and increasing their understanding of AWS cloud technologies.

TechNative worked closely with Lepaya to create a comprehensive solution that addressed their specific challenges. The transformation encompassed various strategies, all aimed at enhancing efficiency and security within the AWS cloud environment.

To optimize infrastructure management and increase control, TechNative recommended rebuilding Lepaya’s AWS workload using Terraform, an Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool. This approach allowed for standardized and automated infrastructure provisioning, reducing manual efforts and the potential for errors.

A significant aspect of the transformation was the migration of services from EC2 instances to ECS containers on Fargate. This move provided Lepaya with scalability and flexibility, simplifying the management of workloads and eliminating the need for manual infrastructure management. The adoption of containerization brought about improved efficiency within their AWS cloud environment.

Enhancing security measures was of utmost importance to Lepaya. TechNative implemented least privilege access control across security groups, IAM policies, and database users. This ensured that only authorized entities had the necessary privileges, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access. KMS encryption was also leveraged to protect data at rest, providing an additional layer of security. IAM credentials were replaced with ECS Taskroles, reducing the attack surface and further enhancing security.

Database optimization played a crucial role in reducing costs. TechNative identified and optimized slow queries in their PostgreSQL database, resulting in improved performance. Additionally, multiple PostgreSQL clusters were consolidated into a single cluster, simplifying management and reducing complexity. The migration from RDS PostgreSQL to RDS Aurora further improved performance and offered cost-saving benefits.

the results:

Lepaya achieved remarkable results, transforming their AWS cloud environment into a highly efficient and secure platform. The optimization efforts resulted in reduced cloud maintenance time and increased control over the infrastructure. Lepaya benefited from enhanced security measures, protecting their data and systems from potential threats. Moreover, the consolidation of resources and the migration to RDS Aurora led to significant cost savings while maintaining optimal performance.

The successful transformation of Lepaya’s AWS cloud environment in collaboration with TechNative highlights the significance of strategic optimization efforts. By addressing challenges related to efficiency and security, Lepaya now operates on a highly efficient and secure cloud platform.
