How we’ve helped our customers: Perkbox Case Study
“Since the very beginning, we realised that we were working with very professional and talented people that are aware of the latest trends and the good practices to implement solutions on the cloud.”
– Mikel, Perkbox
Perkbox is a cloud-based employee perks and engagement platform serving business of all sizes. The platform is based on the full spectrum of employee wellbeing; financial, physical and emotional providing tailored employee benefit packages to customers.
Perkbox had selected DC/OS as the container deployment & orchestration tool, and had begun to deploy this to AWS, however, their key DevOps lead left the business mid-way through the project. This left Perkbox with limited in-house support and a tight release deadline to meet.
Upon investigation, the DC/OS platform wouldn’t provide the features & flexibility Perkbox required. Because of this, we recommended replacing DC/OS with Kubernetes and committed to spending the remaining days building a highly available Kubernetes platform on AWS.
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.
We worked with Perkbox to develop the orchestration code for surrounding AWS services in-line with industry best practices. This included cloud services such as Aurora, ElastiCache, Route53, CloudFront, & API Gateway.
After this successful project, we’re now working with them on an ongoing basis. We provide Perkbox with AWS and Kubernetes/container/microservices architecture expertise when required.
