The challenge

As FINQ embarked on this transformative journey, they faced the challenge of migrating their infrastructure to AWS. Recognizing the need for a reliable partner, they turned to 2bcloud, a born-to-the-cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP) specializing in working with fast-growing, cloud-native startups.

The Solution

The migration plan was meticulous, and divided into phases for optimal execution. In the initial “Preparations” phase, detailed assessments were conducted, including gathering infrastructure and application details, understanding security requirements, and creating a lucid chart-based architecture. This laid the foundation for a successful migration.

Moving on to “Infrastructure & Deployment,” 2bcloud’s experts, along with FINQ’s team, orchestrated a series of tasks. This included architect support, setting up AWS AIM roles, configuring Terraform modules, creating security measures with AWS WAF, deploying an EKS cluster, database migration to Amazon RDS, and implementing essential tools like Nexus and ArgoCD. The entire process was managed and documented, ensuring transparency and accountability.

The result

The implementation phase saw the transformation of FINQ’s infrastructure. From networking configurations, storage solutions, and monitoring tools to database configurations and security measures, every aspect was carefully addressed. The team conducted thorough testing, including performance testing, tuning, and stress tests. FINQ’s databases smoothly migrated to AWS RDS, and the DNS zone seamlessly moved to Route53.

2bcloud’s FinOps Managed Service played a pivotal role in optimizing costs, providing detailed insights into cloud spending, and ensuring financial and operational performance control. The AWS Config, S3 bucket configurations, and services to EKS migrations were seamlessly executed, showcasing the depth of expertise brought by 2bcloud.
