Shifting data center from US to Australia to avoid CDN expense and avoid latency

Shifting data center from US to Australia to avoid CDN expense and avoid latency

Relocating a data center is not an easy task. Unlike your average business, data centers need to focus on other important considerations, namely, to ensure that customer data is available and accessible during the transition. Meticulous planning and preparation are critical to successful resettlement and it is good to be familiar with the options.

Problem: Our Client wanted to shift his data center from the US to Australia as they have clientele in Australia so they can avoid CDN expense and avoid latency.

Challenge:
• Content such as images and documents are served from a different domain can effect on SEO.
• Zero downtime during the migration process
• Difficulty in performing testing when deploying the data.
• Clients might connect from an environment that does not allow access to some resources. This could be a security-constrained environment that limits access to only a set of known sources, or one that prevents loading of resources from anything other than the page origin.

Solution: Firstly our team found out what is going on in the current data center as every computing environment is composed of relationships: applications and systems that influence the function and behavior of other applications and systems.

Then we decided on the migration method for each application. We ‘lift and shift’ the software, reinstalled the application and migrated the data to the new data center.

Lastly, our team carefully plan and predetermined space for applications in the new network and minimized the latency.

Result: Our team successfully transfers the data-center from the US to Australia in Zero-downtime during the migration process.

No matter which method we use, relocating a data center is a complex process with many moving parts. At NestorOps, our team carefully plans and prepares a paramount for best practices that help in ensuring a successful conclusion. Once the new data center is up and running, the foundation for the expanded company is again on track.

CI/CD Pipeline

CI/CD Pipeline

Problem: Our client wanted CI/CD pipeline to obtain operational efficiency and performance in less time. Large and small companies are facing the competitive and other challenges to deliver value and quality to their customers in a timely manner. Many companies are also realizing that cloud technologies are enabling fast value delivery with pay only for utilization benefits. Customers are comfortable with SaaS models if security, privacy and performance are covered. NestorOps Company is the leader with experience in DevOps, CI/CD architecture and tools, test automation strategy and cloud technologies. Challenges: • New application was needed to be built from the ground up. • Implementing effective automated quality gates for the Continuous Integration portion of the CI/CD pipeline • Setting up auto-scaling infrastructure to support heavy traffic. Solution: We phased high-level roadmap for the CI/CD pipeline implementation on what to develop and in what order by reducing uncertainty and risk. To demonstrate improvements in Continuous Integration due to automated quality gates with static analysis, we developed a proof-of-concept (POC) with a Golang micro-service, SonarQube and hooked it to a Jenkins pipeline script. Once the POC was approved, the team implemented it for widespread use. Integrating automated static analysis quality gates early in the development cycle ensures higher quality and self-service and scalability for developers who are building micro-services. All code check-ins will be checked for code smells, improper usage of language structure, bad formatting etc. and the build is “failed” so that it can be fixed before moving further. We used proper test strategy in successful implementation of a streamlined CI/CD pipeline. Our team reviewed the test strategy of the company and provided feedback and guidance on layering the tests to conform to best-practices. In addition, our Nestor Ops team implemented proper test automation suites and tied them to the CI/CD pipeline. Technology: Jenkins Result: Results speak louder than words. From identifying gaps in strategy, tooling and execution to helping accelerate development of key CI/CD capabilities, our team delivered value. At Nestorops we keep ourselves updated with the latest technology trends and collaboration to ensure we can provide our customers with the best output.
CDN (Continuous Delivery Network)

CDN (Continuous Delivery Network)

Speed and traffic play an important role in overall conversion in the ranking of the site. Over the years websites have become richer in content and functionalities and this evolution was necessary to accommodate the demand of modern web where user interactivity has gone to a whole new level. Today, many websites find it challenging to deliver their content at a faster speed with more traffic to the end users located around the world.

Problem: Our client was having a problem during peak hours and wanted to serve content to their website users instantly. He wanted to use CDN (Continuous Delivery Network) to deliver the content from the nearest server and avoid any latency (delay)

Challenges:
• Network and application level protection and preventing harm or loss of service by filtering traffic.
• Providing security control and very large amounts of network bandwidth without compromising application availability or performance.
• To deliver content from the nearest Server to another location.

Solution: For implementing this case, our team followed CDN process to migrate the content. A CDN is defined as the Content Delivery Network and it provides the fastest way to deliver content from one website application to the people based on other geographical location. It is a network of geographically distributed servers which caches the static content near the location of visitors.

Firstly, We send the content to the edge servers nearest to the user’s location and retrieved the requested content from the origin server and delivered the content to the end user.
Then CDN servers cache those content and saved a copy of those content so that if there will be another request for the same content, that will be delivered from the edge servers itself instead of the origin server.
Thus, delivered the content requested by the user through a distributed network in a faster way and took the load off the origin server.

In future also, if there is a request for new content, edge servers will again load that content from the origin server, save a copy and will deliver the content to the end user.

Result:
We encouraged our customer to use CDN on their site and made the whole process easier and economical. We manually worked on this case and was successful too. Using CDN helped our customer in having a Faster website, Lower Latency, High Traffic Handling, Better ranking, Security and Enhanced User Experience for their website.

Nestor ops team provided the real-time optimization, resizing, compression with global CDN and helped the customer to improve website performance and lastly, our customer experienced a faster website along with many other benefits.

Problem: Our client wanted to block unwanted search engine bots and save site from crash.

Problem: Our client wanted to block unwanted search engine bots and save site from crash.

Problem: Our client wanted to block unwanted search engine bots and save the site from a crash.

Our Client was providing services in Australia and the development team was in India, so he mainly wants to have access to the site from these 2 places. In addition to that he wanted to start a business in the US and UK but due to unwanted traffic this was choking and crashing the site.

Challenges:

  • Monitor the global distribution of traffic and the response times of CDN.
  • Providing security control and very large amounts of network bandwidth without compromising application availability or performance.

Solution: For solving client problem, our team member used CDN and firewall technologies. Firstly, we perform vulnerability scanning, source coding testing and detected malware. Secondly, eliminated the backdoors and managed/prevented the website and accelerated the load balancing, bandwidth, static and dynamic caching.

On other hands, our team worked on delivery the content globally. We send the content to the edge servers nearest to the user’s location and retrieved the requested content from the origin server and delivered the content to the end user.

Then CDN servers cache those content and saved a copy of those content so that if there will be another request for the same content, that will be delivered from the edge servers itself instead of the origin server.

Thus, delivered the content requested by the user through a distributed network in a faster way and took the load off the origin server.

Result: In result customer’s website was protected from malicious traffic and the performance of the site was boosted by more than 50%. We also enhanced the user experience, increased conversions and protected customer reputation. In addition, CDN helped our customer in having a faster website, Lower Latency, High Traffic Handling, Better ranking and Security for their website.
