Jobbmesse’s journey with AWS and Basefarm started in late 2017 with a workshop. This was soon followed by a migration project in which Jobbmesse’s application code was re-deployed to a new environment that Basefarm had created on AWS, using IaC. In simple terms, IaC defines the whole of the AWS infrastructure, resource by resource, in a set of templates, which are version controlled. Change is managed by updating the templates and applying them to the environment, causing infrastructure and other resources to be created, updated or deleted to match the templates. Changes can also be reverted by reapplying previous templates. By using IaC, management and operation of the environment is streamlined and automated, eliminating slow and error-prone manual operations.
Jobbmesse have been using this solution for around one year, supported by Basefarm’s Guided Operations service.
