Customer: India’s biggest e-commerce store

Problem Statement

Customer is the India’s biggest e-commerce store and competes with Amazon.
Customer’s non-ecommerce websites like careers, stories (corporate blog) and
websites were on AWS and as part of company-wide Azure adoption, they wanted
to move these sites to Azure PaaS.

Proposed Solution

Powerup helped move Customer’s Careers (PHP based) and Stories (WordPress)
from AWS IaaS to Azure PaaS. The websites were configured to withstand
customer’s scale and sudden surge in traffic due to marketing activities and huge
online presence that they command. CDN was introduced and caching frequently
visited content is enabled for better performance. The stories site was recently
redeployed to App Service Linux backend.

Cloud Platform

Microsoft Azure.

Technologies used

Azure App Service, Application Insights, Azure Security Center, WordPress, MYSQL.
