How we’ve helped our customers: Regatta Case Study
“LAST BLACK FRIDAY, THE SITE WAS DOWN FOR 4 HOURS… THIS BLACK FRIDAY I WAS IN THE PUB AT 3PM BECAUSE THINGS WERE GOING SO WELL”
– JEFF FOX, REGATTA
Regatta is a family-owned company that prides itself on providing value for money clothing for any outdoor environment. With an unparalleled reputation in the outdoor clothing market and knowledge and skills learned from decades of steady growth, Regatta is uniquely positioned to supply the promotional and corporate wear industry with outdoor uniforms and apparel.
Regatta’s ecommerce workload was hosted on AWS prior to Steamhaus’ input—a development agency created a green field Magento 2 build out. However, they were experiencing performance and reliability problems, particularly in high-traffic situations.
Steamhaus is hugely experienced with designing and building very high traffic architectures, so we used a combination of that experience, performance testing, and the latest developments in the AWS platform and Magento to settle on a design that not only scaled, but offered business agility.
Following the launch of the new infrastructure, the considerably improved response time—in conjunction with the benefits of an effective CI/CD process—resulted in higher sales.
OUR CI/CD PROCESS HAS ALLOWED REGATTA TO HAVE NUMEROUS RELEASES TO PRODUCTION PER DAY
The automated nature of the architecture has allowed Regatta to continually improve the existing stores and launch three new stores on the platform in very little time.
FOLLOWING THE MIGRATION
We continue to support the Magento infrastructure 24/7, as well as working on improvements and new requirements from Regatta. As a result of the success of this project, Regatta have opted to move their internal systems to our management.
