Situation

As an early stage startup, the IPowerz enterprise application was developed completely on premises using various server environments for storing code, application artifacts, web servers, database servers etc and running the production environment on a Digital Ocean platform. This caused a myriad of problems, including extended deployment time, scalability issues and larger upfront costs.

Goal
Ipowerz wanted a cost-effective solution to run the system 24/7 providing access to a worldwide audience while streamlining development and maintaining the ability to quickly enhance the system.

Our Solution
We hosted their application in the AWS cloud.

About Ipowerz

It serves as a stage for collaboration between incubation centers, investors, and individuals from around the world to forge partnerships with the people behind those ideas and jointly take them forward, fund them, and bring them to fruition.
