Classic server infrastructure
New server infrastructure of tennis zone
Classic server infrastructure The biggest challenge was to reorganize and propose a new hosting strategy for the client. So far, the store application has used the standard solution, one physical server machine.
This stopped being right at the moment when the customer had decided on dynamic development of their business. The classic server managed well with organic and slow growth in store traffic (it had enough power to handle such growth), but already in the case of various promotional actions that resulted in the emergence of a large number of customers in a short time, we had to opt for more flexible And a scalable solution.
Of course, we could choose to go to a more powerful machine or strengthen the infrastructure with a few traditional servers, supported by a service redundancy system, and a mechanism for scattering traffic between machines. The problem was that this strategy would only remove the problem in time. Both solutions in a relatively short time would also be insufficient and they would not have the resources to properly maintain the store. We wanted to avoid this and that is why we offered the customer a completely different approach.
Server in the cloud In the new deal we set up servers on the Oktawave cloud We decided for their solution for two reasons.
Flexibility of solution
The OktaWave administrator panel has many tools to facilitate and automate even complex administrative tasks, and allows you to build almost any custom server infrastructure. The operator has the ability to use default server instance templates or create custom ones based on standard distributions, Debian.
This is a tool that allows us to automatically adjust the resources of specific servers, depending on the volume of traffic on the store. Autoscaler constantly monitors server loads and increases their computing power and the amount of available memory. This works without restarting the machine.
On the other hand, when you need to reduce resources, you have the ability to set such a process at a particular time, such as at night, and the redundancy of individual components of the infrastructure allows you to restart individual machines imperceptibly for the customer (Web site user).
New server infrastructure of Strefa Tenisa In a very simplistic way: online store, substantially its application, has been scattered into seven virtual machines within the OktaWave infrastructure.
