The Challenge

Fourth Estate had initially hosted the site on costly and intricate dedicated servers since its inception because of explosive growth.

This setup proved to be financially burdensome and lacked the scalability required by the organization.

Sudden surges in new users driving expenses through the roof, Fourth Estate opted to transition to a fault-tolerant and scalable cloud deployment.

This new architecture would not only mitigate costs but also cater to the escalating performance demands accompanying the platform’s burgeoning popularity.

What did
Honeytree do

Drawing on its proficiency in cloud services, Honeytree collaborated with Fourth Estate to craft an optimal solution.

Through careful architecture, Honeytree devised a new deployment tailored to fulfill Fourth Estate’s requirements for enterprise-grade high availability and performance.

In addition, Honeytree implemented monitoring tools to enhance visibility into the platform’s performance and application.

This allowed Fourth Estate to maintain seamless operations and optimize the platform, leading to reduced infrastructure expenses while markedly enhancing performance, surpassing the capabilities of the initial deployment.
