About the client
Media & Entertainment
Client wanted to increase revenue through customized ad-serving & uninterrupted service on AWS and improve their Alexa ranking.
Cloud Kinetics moved the client from Akamai-based on-premise system to AWS cloud with CloudFront. This resulted in ability of the application to sustain the Tamil Nadu election season without a hitch, improved ad-revenue and dramatically improved Alexa ranking. The site is served using three CloudFront distributions. The application CloudFront routes traffic to an ELB which in turn routes to an auto-scaled PHP application running CentOS on EC2 instances. The data is served using a MySQL RDS with a read-replica for read queries. Additional CloudFronts backed by S3s are used for VOD content and Images.
