Lumina contacted Steamhaus to partner with them in modernising their application environments and migrating their infrastructure to AWS cloud.
Lumina had begun developing a microservices-based architecture alongside their legacy monolithic architecture. As the development of new services that support their products progressed, they came to Steamhaus for expertise that could help them to architect solutions using best-of-breed technologies and in line with best practices.
The primary objective was to consolidate all of the hosting infrastructure, which was deployed across Rackspace & Heroku, whilst simultaneously improving the architecture by removing any single points of failure and adding high availability & elasticity.
They also wanted to take advantage of services within AWS to help them introduce zero-downtime deployments and alongside this, there was a desire within the development team to leverage Docker to deliver new microservices quickly.
