CLIENT CASE

Gold Avenue is an e-commerce platform dedicated to the sale and purchase of precious metals, with significant international objectives.

Once again, Net4All is proud to have been able to assist Gold Avenue and Vincent Mattart, its CTO, in their migration project to AWS.

The project

  • E-commerce
  • AWS Cloud
  • High Security

Interview with Vincent Mattart, CTO

What is required and for which issues?

  • Scalability: due to significant traffic peaks, whether anticipated (sales, marketing campaigns) or unanticipated (gold price fluctuations). AWS scalability guarantees the absorption of these load peaks while optimising costs.
  • 24/7 availability: in order to achieve the objectives set for the e-commerce site, high multi-AZ availability and 24/7 maintenance in operating conditions were other mandatory criteria. This is managed by Net4All teams.
  • Security: the presence of stored sensitive data (identity documents) made it essential to undertake a process to secure the platform, in particular thanks to a WAF custom-configured by Net4All: unlike the standard WAF on the market, the configuration model is built according to the application and its latest versions.
  • CI/CD: as part of the rapid evolution of the website functionalities, regular modifications are made to the application code. In order to facilitate these changes as much as possible, Net4All offers its DevOps expertise to integrate an automation process into the development and evolution of the application.
  • Hybridisation: for data location purpose, some amount of data storage is provided by Net4all.

Project Assessment

Excellent satisfaction with the entire project: the Gold Avenue team knows that it can rely on Net4All whenever there is a need for optimisations, recommendations, or DevOps.

Thanks to this collaboration, Gold Avenue was also able to build up internal skills on AWS!

In addition, the platform now makes it possible to guarantee campaigns such as the one carried out during Qoqa.ch anniversary week: the performance was excellent, with no downtime (HA).

Delegating this type of project to experts is highly recommended, but the time needed to set up good practices and coordinate the different actors should not be neglected.

“Delegating this type of project to experts is highly recommended, that’s why we chose to move forward with the Net4All team!”

What’s next?

In order to meet our challenges of rapid evolution of the application, as well as the optimisation of the UX/IX, Net4All has established a process of continuous improvement of the platform. To this end, a monthly steering committee has been set up to review this evolution and to integrate this into the operation of the AWS hosting.
