Fully redundant & Highly Available
By designing and implementing a fully redundant system, spread over multiple Availability Zones, utilising the latest AWS technology, Rebura have ensured that Stamptastic experience zero downtime on their website infrastructure. With Elastic Load Balancing, the system automatically distributes incoming traffic across multiple targets – Amazon EC2 instances, containers, and IP addresses
Scalable & Cost Effective
During peak times (like the summer holidays), the infrastructure scales up to meet the huge demand. This then automatically scales down when not required. Utilising auto-scaling means that Stamptastic only ever pay for the infrastructure they need, without having to waste money on assets which won’t be used for 90% of the year. When they no longer need the additional storage they no longer pay for it. Using AWS Auto Scaling, you maintain optimal application performance and availability, even when workloads are periodic, unpredictable, or continuously changing. AWS Auto Scaling continually monitors your applications to make sure that they are operating at your desired performance levels. When demand spikes, AWS Auto Scaling automatically increases the capacity of constrained resources so you maintain a high quality of service.
The website is fully secure from both external & internal threats. Access is encrypted and there are no publicly accessible elements of the back-end. AWS Shield defends against most common, frequently occurring network and transport layer DDoS attacks that target websites.
