Case Study: AltoStack Helps Boost Performance & Reliability of AdTech Platform Through Automation




VMWare, Chef, Puppet


Data Centre

The Challenge

Faced with aging IT and the need to expand its infrastructure, IginitionOne was looking to enable its in-house development team to stay nimble and one step ahead of the competition which requires growing developer and IT automation, hence increasing their productivity and the ability to quickly iterate on innovation..

AltoStack were engaged to build automated, repeatable development, testing and production environments across two data centres.

The Solution

Building on a VMWare platform we used tools such as Ansible, Atlassian Bamboo and Stash, Sonatype Nexus, HAProxy, Nginx, Sensu and Graphite to create infrastructure around the client's own software.

We also contributed and worked with the client on best practice for deploying and operating NoSQL data stores which included ElasticSearch, MongoDB and Cassandra.

The Business Outcome

The team now have a fully automated continuous delivery pipeline from development to production. Environments are built using repeatable automated technologies. Both developers and operational staff have been up-skilled in a DevOps approach to complement the Agile development process – leaving the client with a maintainable infrastructure that can grow and change according to the client's future needs.
