About the project

SimplesVet is a SaaS (Software as a Service) for Veterinary Clinics and Pet Shops Management, with approximately 1000 clients, located in Salvador / BA. Through the System, all veterinary clinic management takes place in a simple and organized way, controlling from critical operations such as issuance of invoices and financial control to customer relationship management tools.

Challenges

The vast majority of Veterinary Clinics and Pet Shops operate during business hours, the flow of accesses and transactions drops considerably during the night time period. Due to this market behavior, the main challenges were to have a scalable infrastructure, a highly available system and an optimized and automated environment.

Proposed Solution

Although the application was already “born in the cloud” at AWS, having a cloud project partner was essential to the success of the project. Simplesvet started in the cloud in 2013 with a simple structure. With the partnership BRLink, the entire environment has been fully restructured, optimized and adapted to DevOps best practices, allowing deploy processes to take place safely.

Items such as technical capacity, cost-benefit, cases, suggested tools for process improvement and optimization, and the excellent service were the great differences what made us to choose BRLink as a partner for cloud projects.

To build the solution, services like AWS CodeCommit, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, AWS Auto Scaling, Amazon Aurora, Amazon ElastiCache, Amazon VPC, Amazon Route 53, Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon CloudWatch and AWS CloudTrail were put together to create an automated, scalable and high available environment.

Results

Using the AWS Auto Scaling service, SimplesVet reduced resource utilization by approximately 30% in periods of low demand for access, which was not done before these improvements were made. The perception of business expansion capacity, less time to market, increased IT staff productivity and innovation capacity are the factors that make us to consider new projects in the cloud.
