Since ZEP, a time tracking tool company, had an on-premises infrastructure mixed with a monolithic application, they wanted to make the next move towards modern digitalization and approached FullStackS with a request to re-evaluate their infrastructure and application to get to a state of the art architecture. Within a period of 3 months they moved their on-premises infrastructure to the AWS Cloud for the successful go-live.

Initially, ZEP wanted to drive their company towards a higher state of digitalization. The management decided to take this step and with that reached out to FullStackS to help them with this challenge. At first it was hard for FullStackS to show how modernizing the IT Infrastructure could help with reaching business specific goals. After some workshops with the management team and also the engineers, everyone was aware of the positive outcome the digitalization will have to the business. From there on the goal of the project was clear and everyone was working towards this common goal.

The technical solution

ZEP approached FullStackS to advise them on the challenge of restructuring their application and infrastructure. The goal was to modernize the application to be scalable on an Cloud Native guidelines based Infrastructure. 

FullStackS are known for their experience and speed of implementation, having a lot a certified and track record proven Engineers who will work together with the customer very closely. 

For an application management platform Kubernetes and Rancher was used. Since there are a lot of factors to look at when building an Kubernetes platform, one also has to choose something for the underlying infrastructure. Since FullStackS already has good experience with AWS, it was clear to use services from AWS to complete the digital transformation. 

ZEP GmbH are running their AWS services in Frankfurt region. They’re mainly using EKS, EC2 and RDS to run their customer facing services. Additionally SQS, SES, Lambda, S3 and Route53 are in use to support their main workloads.
