Integrating Flyelephant with AWS Services to Establish Information Systems and Enhance Business Value  

Since 2006, the core members of Flyelephant have been involved in C2C (Consumer-to-Consumer) systems and UGC (User-Generated Content) platforms. Through our services, Flyelephant enables customer success by offering expertise in e-commerce customization, system architecture planning, visual concept design, user interface design, user experience design, information system integration, data analysis, and data extraction presentation. We assist customers in achieving their business goals and missions by facilitating the establishment and implementation of information systems, using data-driven insights to support their objectives.

 

Customer needs

As business expands, our self-built data center has gradually become outdated and insufficient to meet the growing demands. Upgrading versions in response to the needs of IT information systems or expanding hardware servers and storage equipment requires a significant amount of time for evaluation and substantial budget investments. Over the long term, this not only proves time-consuming and labor-intensive for the enterprise but also lacks flexibility, potentially adding to the workload of the IT team.

The prioritization of system stability and high quality for customer satisfaction has led to the decision to adopt AWS. This involves reducing the need for additional hardware and software purchases, phasing out obsolete equipment, and updating the overall infrastructure. This includes replacing and integrating existing devices, migrating existing workloads to AWS, and transitioning to SaaS services to meet requirements, thereby reducing IT management demands.

We plan to prioritize the implementation of various AWS services such as Amazon ECS, Amazon S3, and AWS RDS. The anticipated benefits of this migration include increased server availability, ensuring stable and uninterrupted service quality. Additionally, with the integration of AWS RDS, backup tasks will be automated, reducing the need for manual intervention and allowing personnel to focus on other tasks.

 

Project Architecture Diagram

Based on customer requirements, propose an architectural diagram that conforms to the AWS Well-Architected Framework.

  1. VM migration achieved through CloudEndure
  2. DMS Implementation for Database Replication
  3. Plan private network access without direct external connectivity.
  4. The network access between the on-premises environment and AWS can be controlled through Security / ACL to regulate access to specific subnets.
  5. The monitoring of both on-premises and cloud environments is handled by CloudWatch.
  6. Implementing CDN/WAF for Access Optimization and Defense Against Malicious Attacks

合作成果

  • After estimating the cost calculations for migration to AWS, monthly savings of up to 29% are anticipated.
  • Website server performance doubled.
  • Implementing auto-scaling on the server to accommodate high traffic demands.
  • The overall website performance has improved by a factor of two.
  • Purchasing Reserved Instances (RI) for EC2 development and testing can result in cost savings of up to 60%.
  • Utilizing CloudWatch and SNS for system environment monitoring has reduced operational personnel's repetitive tasks by over 60%.
  • Amazon CloudFront Accelerates Web Page Loading Speed by Over 40%.
  • AWS WAF successfully blocks malicious connections by over 80%.
  • Reduce AWS RDS backup time to within 30 minutes, enabling the application of automatic backup functionality to save on third-party software expenses.
