Story

BBTV New Media provides real-time broadcasting and VOD services on an application named "BUGABOO.TV". In the past, all services were in our on-premise architecture environment. We ran into scalability challenges because The demand we experienced on live sport event day—thousands of simultaneous connections—was higher than we anticipated, and the technology we were using didn’t support it.

Executive Summary

To meet its needs for high availability and scalability, BBTV New Media decided to migrate its resource to AWS cloud. We use Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL, which gives the company the ability to quickly set up, operate, and scale PostgreSQL deployments in the cloud. We also use Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and takes advantage of Auto Scaling in AWS, which enables the company to scale its EC2 capacity up or down automatically depending on predefined conditions.The company also use Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) to distribute traffic across its Amazon EC2 instances.

BUGABOO.TV application is now reliably available because we have consistent performance, even under higher traffic loads.The company can now scale its web servers on demand to support sports event day traffic and other periods when user activity increases.Additionally, we can scale automatically to meet unforeseen demands.
