DevOps: Automated deployment on the cloud for My Community Finance

Cloud infrastructure for microservices

Infrastructure-as-code solution

One-click deployment automation

Project Brief

The DevOps automated pipeline enables quick and sound deployment of new applications into microservice infrastructure.

The Profinit team enhanced our deployment processes using a very professional and technologically modern approach. After just several weeks, they had built an automated pipeline that enables us to deploy new applications into production with literally one click.

Project background & challenge

Our client, My Community Finance, the UK’s largest provider of consumer loans in the credit union sector, was transforming its cloud IT infrastructure to catch up with rapid business growth.

The new microservice architecture was chosen to better match very agile and flexible IT needs.

The current deployment setup and infrastructure components were set up for traditional incremental releases unsuitable for continuous deployment. The Profinit DevOps team enhanced the existing infrastructure and recreate a new deployment pipeline.

Business needs

The solution needed to meet the following specifications:

  • Take over existing infrastructure and build a new CI/CD pipeline
  • Modernise automated deployment processes and components
  • Enable deployment of new web applications with one click

DevOps Solution

The first action was to upgrade major infrastructure pieces to the up-to-date versions.

Profinit’s primary approach was to create an infrastructure-as-code (IaC) solution automating the whole pipeline as much as possible using Jenkins and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service. Documentation on how to use and operate the system was created as a matter of course as well as guidelines for new service developers.

The pipeline now enables the deployment of new microservices with one click.

Project Summary

The solution we designed and implemented has achieved these results for the company:

  • A microservice architecture was chosen to catch up with rapidly growing business and flexible IT needs
  • We fully automated the deployment pipeline creating an infrastructure-as-code solution
  • The solution now enables the deployment of new microservices with a single click
