Problem Statement

ViraConsultation (ViraCons) is a Virasoft solution that focuses on globally collaborative pathology. Nowadays, with the pandemic spreading at a global scale, ViraCons is getting the traction it never had before. The success measures on this study are the service quality and speed for the pathologists who uses this solution. However, managing the underlying database was a tough role for those that has nothing on AWS cloud. So, LimonCloud and Virasoft agreed that cloud migration is a key to their success and then the journey began.

What LimonCloud Proposed

When Virasoft and LimonCloud sat together, the goals defined are splatted into three main bullets.
“Highly available infrastructure”, “Managed database solution” and “CI/CD”.

Amazon RDS Solution For Database

Virasoft tried to explain their issues with database problems. When LimonCloud got this feedback, they highly recommend RDS option. Because Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) allows their DBA team to focus less on the day-to-day maintenance and use their time to work on enhancements. AWS offers a set of solutions that will facilitate the work of customers from every sector. At this point, LimonCloud’s aim was finding and adapting most optimal solution for their customers. After LimonCloud implemented the project, Virasoft performed the required performance and security tests and expressed their wishes to continue with AWS.

As you are familiar with, Amazon RDS takes over many of the difficult or tedious management tasks of a relational database; Issues like backups, software patching, automatic failure detection, and recovery becomes a little less worry.

In Virasoft’s scenario, at initial, since the database is small and the product has just launched, LimonCloud offered a Multi-AZ Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) deployment to their customer, as well as with Read-Replicas and Daily Automated Backups. However, since the project is just gaining traction, they decided to arrange those changes later, and prepared the infrastructure as in this matter because of the increasing startup costs. That just left the Daily Automated Backups in place, but it wasn’t a problem, they can always modify the RDS instance with their additional needs, at any time.

Some of the other advantages of RDS:

Resources are split apart so that you can scale them independently. If you need more CPU, less IOPS, or more storage, you can easily allocate them. To deliver a managed service experience, Amazon RDS doesn’t provide shell access to DB instances. It also restricts access to certain system procedures and tables that require advanced privileges.
You can use the database products you are already familiar with: MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server. In addition to the security in your database package, you can help control who can access your RDS databases by using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to define users and permissions. You can also help protect your databases by putting them in a virtual private cloud.

Virasoft is now confident that they can deliver their services reliably to their customers by using AWS. “We’re a lot more advanced in our use of the cloud than before,” they say.

Benefits

Two prominent benefits of migration to the cloud are faster time to deploy and less database to manage.

Virasoft’s team has automated processes so that developers can self-deploy code. In the company’s legacy physical environment, deployments can take weeks—even months—as code is passed back and forth between Ops and Dev teams, servers are configured, and requirements are ironed out. In the AWS Cloud, it takes minutes.

There are lots of ways to improve an AWS architecture with lots of services provided. For this time LimonCloud provided their services to Virasoft, using AWS VPC, ECS Fargate and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS). Expectations from LimonCloud’s services went beyond and made their customer happy than ever.
