Limited technical knowledge: While Bamboo System Technology has an online education platform based on Alibaba Cloud, it lacked the technical know-how related to cloud architecture and best practices. The company was looking to optimize its cloud architecture to improve service reliability, reduce downtime, and control costs.
Consultation requirements: Bamboo System Technology needed consultation around cloud security services and architecture to protect its cloud-based systems, data, and infrastructure.
Lack of scalability and technical support: Bamboo System Technology supported the '14th Annual Mathlympics for All Singapore Primary Schools 2021' via its online education platform. However, the large volume of network traffic during the exam led to a system crash. This interrupted the normal business operations and negatively impacted the end-user experience. It was looking for dependable technical support that would ensure the successful execution of future exams.03
Why Alibaba Cloud
Bamboo System Technology was on the lookout for professional and leading-edge cloud consultation services to support its business environment. Given that Alibaba Cloud has a robust ecosystem of 10,000+ global business partners, a comprehensive suite of cloud computing services, and extensive technical expertise in the cloud domain, it became the preferred choice for the company. Alibaba Cloud offered world-class end-to-end professional service to Bamboo System Technology and cloud architecture optimization following Alibaba Cloud best practices. Alibaba Cloud also provided it with on-site support during the competition event day to ensure smooth execution of the competition.04
Alibaba Cloud provided a multi-zone high availability solution implemented with 3-layer architecture to enhance the cloud solution architecture for Bamboo System Technology. Server Load Balancer (SLB) and Network Address Translation Gateway (NAT) were set up to offer the flexibility of scaling up to meet high traffic demands and scaling down to control the cost.
Alibaba Cloud further conducted a stress test together with the technical team of Bamboo System Technology to gauge the responsiveness, stability, and scalability of the cloud infrastructure under high loads. Furthermore, the company switched from a self-built database to Alibaba Cloud managed database services, including MongoDB and Redis.05
