Security Benefits was using manual AWS operations for the EC2 instances deployment. It required developers to perform provisioning. All the interlocking systems and processes were managed manually, which consumed a lot of time. It also required resources with specialized skills. The entire process also involved multiple actions that had to be completed before deployment. The customer wanted ITTStar to find a faster, cost-effective, efficient, and more scalable solution. Security Benefit also wanted ITTStar to build an automated DevSecOps pipeline to increase their marketing efforts, improve security and increase operational stability and reliability.
ITTStar implemented the solution to this project by solving mainly four requirements.
AWS provides secure, reliable, scalable, and inexpensive cloud computing services. CloudFormation is the AWS IaC tool that serves as an automation platform. It allows one to implement services or applications without having to set up and configure each service manually, saving considerable time and avoiding the potential for mistakes and inconsistencies.
Given its ease of use and wide-ranging capabilities, CloudFormation has helped the customer to automate the infrastructure management and focus on innovation. The customer was able to provision the EC2 instances along with domain joining within minutes through CFN templates deployed.
Security Benefit chose ITTStar as their trusted partner in their digital transformation journey. They wanted an expert partner for data-driven innovation. ITTStar's unique approach to solving complex infrastructure and security problems using cloud-native services and their ability to drive innovations attracted the customer to partner with them. As an AWS Select Partner, our confidence comes from our understanding of how to integrate AWS services into our solutions, combined with our broken-down approach to solving holistic business challenges.
