Within a day or so we’d improved the situation massively and the site was stable, which allowed us to focus on improving performance.
Our Cloud Architects did a lot of optimisation work on the servers to reduce load times, which has obvious positive results in terms of the number of visitors who stick around and buy something. Additionally, we configured CloudFlare to further optimise load times by serving all static content from their CDN.
We now act as an extension of Ahoy’s technical team, providing operations support to their developers. We’ve also established a partnership where we assist Ahoy on client pitches.
Ahoy are now building the client’s replacement site using Magento. We’re designing and building the new infrastructure that it’ll run on, working closely with Ahoy to ensure the two elements go hand-in-hand to enhance the end-user experience, not hinder it.
We’ll help with the details of the all-important migration to the new platform including monitoring both the old and new environments during this crucial time. After that we’ll continue to make sure the new site is always online and never constrained by its hosting environment.
We visited Ahoy to film this case study. Check it out below:
