Regas Nederland BV is a leading software solution provider for Healthcare providers. Regas is a technology company operating in a strongly regulated market with high demand relative to availability and flexibility.
AWS was selected as the Public Cloud of choice with the objective to improve the application availability and accelerate the speed of innovation. To fully understand the impact of such a transition a research has been conducted by Weolcan, which has resulted in a business case with scenario analysis and strategic recommendations.
CloudNation was selected to architect, engineer and support the migration of the Regas application to AWS. The project included the set-up of an AWS best practice based Landing Zone including the set-up of as many AWS native managed Services as possible to replace existing dependencies in the application.
‘Since Regas actively supports the DevOps practice, CloudNation worked with the Regas Software Architect, Lead Engineer Operations and Lead Database Administrator to bring all practices together in the new infrastructure.’
The business need for a scalable and flexible environment was the main driver behind the migration to the AWS cloud. We helped Regas in translating these business needs into Infrastructure as Code. As an added benefit making it possible for Regas to have a highly scalable environment in the primary cloud region and a low cost disaster recovery in a backup cloud region.
The existing Bitbucket account was integrated with the newly built AWS environment, streamlining the infrastructure deployment to work alongside their existing software deployment methods. This allowed the Regas DevOps teams to have more control over their software deployments so they can focus on the end-to-end lifecycle.
The compelling event for Regas to migrate their software platform to a Public Cloud platform was initiated due to some continuity issues in their outsourced managed hosting environment. There were a relatively high number of Single Points of Failure (SPOF) and limited options for high availability in the original set-up.
The entire setup for Regas BV is based on a combination of the following automation tooling:
I’ve enabled one of our clients to transform from a traditional datacenter hosted application landscape to Azure Service Fabric. From the business case, the high level design, infrastructure as code pipeline to the actual application transition I’ve been the frontrunner.
I like to play a leading-role in the “cloud team” at the client, helping to make the cloud journey a success using our deep knowledge, experience and best-practices of AWS.
