The Business Challenge

The top priorities for business owners are to cut costs and to ensure the stable performance of applications they offer to customers. In this success story, the solution to achieve those two values was cloud computing.

Our client dealt with usage spikes and struggled with unreliable in-house infrastructure.

What is more, the infrastructure was not extended enough to meet the demands.

In addition, the in-house team that handled the infrastructure generated high costs – disproportionate to the overall poor performance. They needed technical guidance and cutting-edge solutions to optimize the stack.

The nail to the coffin was a security risk, caused by the lack of updates.

Our Solution

With our client, we decided the best course of action is to migrate the application to the cloud. It opened up great opportunities for the client’s business, like auto-scalability, cost reduction, and resistance to high servers’ loads.

The first task was to decompose the client’s application. As a result, we had a few applications, ready to be migrated to the cloud.

To achieve the greatest flexibility, as well as the best environment for development, we decided on Platform as a Service. Cloud Foundry PaaS on AWS hosting was a perfect choice for this client.

The last steps were to configure the new environment – for example, to make it possible to deploy many times a day. Of course, during the whole project, we kept testing our solutions, to ensure there are no hidden bugs or any problems.

Technologies We Used

AWS, Java, Angular


Infrastructure is scalable. Customer defines baseline performance and enable auto-scaling to handle unexpected spikes of usage.

Customer pays only for the currently required infrastructure size of the application.

Deployment can happen many times a day because it is short and simple.


What our partners say about us

After carefully evaluating suppliers, we decided to try a new approach and start working with a near-shore software house. Cooperation with Hicron Software House was something different, and it turned out to be a great success that brought added value to our company.

With HICRON’s creative ideas and fresh perspective, we reached a new level of our core platform and achieved our business goals.

Many thanks for what you did so far; we are looking forward to more in future!
