Reto: High availability and cost reduction

Fira de Barcelona, one of the most important international trade fair institutions in Europe and home to the Mobile World Congress, needed to accelerate time-to-market, agility, and flexibility for its infrastructure, adjusting operational costs and offering a highly available service capable of supporting strong peaks of concurrency.

Solución: Migration to cloud

Migrating its infrastructure to a scalable, flexible, and global cloud model, designed to take advantage of the full PaaS potential of the AWS cloud:

  • Scalability and flexibility achieved through a layer of microservices (SDA) in Docker deployed on Elastic Container Service.
  • Unified authentication for all sites and APIs (CAS).
  • Development environment based on continuous integration tools.
  • CloudFront for distribution of static content in S3 with low latency for our clients.
  • Serverless: Lambdas to be flexible without the need to provision or manage servers.
  • Analytics based on Kinesis and Redshift to have a 360º view of the Customer.
  • Real-time monitoring of key service indicators to ensure the scalability of the architecture, including: dashboards, alarms, and logs.

Resultados: Increased productivity and efficiency

  • Cost reduction of 81% compared to the initial on-premise scenario (this savings represented a 34% improvement over the initial estimate of the AWS TCO calculation tool)
  • Ensure the adaptation of applications and systems to the business needs of Fira de Barcelona
  • Provide a controlled framework for project providers
  • Improve efficiency and time to market for new developments
  • Minimize effort in maintenance and recurring tasks
  • Reduce the operating cost of systems
