The Challenge
MediaZilla's online media platform was growing rapidly and managing the IT infrastructure was increasingly becoming a distraction for their software development team. They needed to focus on pushing out new features while at the same time giving their users the security and resilience they needed.
The Solution
MediaZilla engaged Privo to build a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline which automated the entire code deployment process. At the same time, Privo upgraded their security by implementing a central authentication account, among other things. Privo also leveraged Auto Scaling and multiple Availability Zones to improve resilience.

The Benefits

Automation

The new CI/CD pipeline uses GitHub, CodeDeploy and CodePipeline to remove all of the friction when deploying new code. As a result, MediaZilla is now able to push small, incremental updates to their software, increasing their pace of innovation.

Security

Developers and systems administrators now authenticate using a central "Auth" account which provides secure granular access from a single, centrally managed account, the new account uses the AssumeRole feature of identity and Access Management (IAM).

Resilience

With the implementation of Auto Scaling Groups, servers automatically spawn to handle spikes in traffic and failed servers are replaced with healthy servers in the event of a problem. Furthermore, the application can gracefully handle the loss of an entire AWS data center.
