JetRails architected an AWS solution with best practices in mind using the right AWS services for different concerns. This includes MySQL being offloaded to RDS Aurora, Redis migrated to Elasticache, and Elasticsearch offloading onto AWS OpenSearch. All EC2 instances, as well as services, are running on the Graviton family of processors for improved efficiency, leading to lower costs and resource usage. We were able to achieve 14.68% in savings overall for static assets, while certain services, like EC2, realized a cost reduction of over 20%. Splitting off workloads into services also allowed us to rightsize the account to utilize smaller EC2 instances, leading to a better-performing platform for their Magento 2 site.
JetRails also deployed a range of security solutions to assist DOT® Fasteners in adhering to PCI Compliance and security best practices. These solutions include the use of Cloudflare’s web application firewall (WAF) and bot mitigation, as well as Sansec’s eComScan malware scanner. This is in addition to JetRails security hardening of the environment and following least-privileged-access principles.
