MDM

Optimizing Application Delivery with DevOps and Containerization Services

Overview

As a significant player in Mobile Device Management (MDM) industry, our customer provides intelligent solutions for companies across the globe to regulate, monitor, and secure employees’ mobile devices.

The Business Challenge

Due to its excellent performance and exponential growth, the MDM giant was flooded by massive waves of new users. Their rapidly accelerating business demanded the quick release of new features, disrupting their roadmap. With millions of users operating the product around the clock and relying on its short response times, the company had to make new server provisions for all new users, including releasing new features within 5 hours. The company was also facing the challenge of managing Virtual Machines (VMs) created during the new account signups. The VMs caused difficulties in updating all applications at once, disrupting the user experience. Implementing a new solution supporting continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) capabilities was critical without disturbing the existing operations.

The Solution

SysAlly worked with the company to understand its functional requirements and business objectives. For the main challenge, SysAlly re-engineered the VM-based application to a container-based solution. Containers provide agile assimilation with the existing DevOps environment. We used AWS Fargate, ECS, and Lambda services to set up a container infrastructure. Containers offer quicker deployment and development at scale and faster response times, leading to a good user experience. We moved all the services to the container after intensive testing, and this integration allowed the platform to develop superior competencies and flexibility in application deployment. For tackling the second challenge, our team established a DevOps culture and implemented a CI/CD pipeline for the container workloads. Our personnel then automated application development using Jenkins and Terraform for the build, test, and deployment. With a DevOps solution in place, our team facilitated automated configuration, enhanced scalability, and improved management.

The Results

By implementing container technology, the company now has 5000+ containers instead of VMs, resolving application issues, improving resource utilization, enabling portability and microservices, and reducing operational costs. As a result of various automation and streamlined work, SysAlly drastically reduced the workload of their support team, enabling them to work on other applications, increasing productivity. Paving the way with DevOps culture, our team transformed deployment and delivery of new updates and features, with a significant decrease in time.
