Microservices in AWS


A healthcare company successfully modernized its application by migrating it to a containerized architecture running on EKS with Fargate autoscaling. The steps involved in the project were:

  • Containerizing the application by breaking it down into smaller components and deploying them to an EKS cluster using Terraform.
  • Creating an EKS cluster to manage the deployment of containers.
  • Deploying the application to the EKS cluster using Kubernetes manifests and Fargate.
  • Migrating data to RDS using AWS Database Migration Service (DMS).
  • Migrating the search index to OpenSearch using the migration tool.
  • Configuring Route 53 and CloudFront to point to the new EKS cluster using Terraform.
  • Implementing Elastic Cache to enhance application performance using Terraform.
  • This migration brought several benefits to the healthcare company:

Improved performance due to the modern containerized architecture.

  • Scalability through the auto-scaling capabilities of EKS with Fargate.
  • Cost optimization by paying only for used compute resources with Fargate.
  • Better manageability with Kubernetes for deployment and scaling.
  • Enhanced security leveraging the security features of EKS.
  • The client was highly satisfied with the modernization, and the project achieved its goals of better performance, scalability, cost optimization, manageability, and security.
