Our client is a cloud-based recruitment solutions and systems provider based in New Zealand. They enable SMEs with technology to source and hire talent with minimal investment in digital infrastructure.
As a leading provider of cloud-based recruitment solutions and systems, our client helps small and medium businesses streamline the hiring process. To meet the growing demand for their flagship recruitment solution, it became necessary for our client to migrate their application infrastructure to a robust platform that offered a high level of scalability and security. We recommended migration to AWS cloud for enhanced scalability and reliability.
With high growth prospects, the client wanted to move their recruitment software to a more reliable infrastructure that offered better performance and security. Key expectations included:
The key to reducing and stopping DDoS attacks was to utilize a defense-in-depth approach without creating limitations in performance or scalability. We suggested an AWS architecture with Cloudflare WAF/CDN, Bruteforce attack prevention (with Fail2ban), and AWS Security Groups along with EBS data encryption. Failover mechanisms and elastic computing were implemented to ensure optimal performance and better user experience. With a systematic and fool-proof AWS migration, we rectified reported issues on the live site. Our DevOps team rebuilt the code where required. While migrating the recruitment portal, we improved view layouts of several documents such as resumes and contracts. AWS RDS being a dedicated DB engine significantly improved performance. With CDN implemented, latency was scaled down considerably.
Environment Setup:We set up three separate AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances for the live, testing, and blog servers. The live server hosts the recruitment portal and is accessible by customers and applicants. The testing server provides a one-click staging site with rollback functionality. A single instance hosts the WordPress blog server that manages the recruitment process. These instances are backed with Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) for data and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) for snapshot backups.
