This Sysdogs client is a company specialized in stock exchange data processing. This project is unique, as the algorithms responsible for data processing and calculations work in parallel, using up an enormous amount of resources dispersed throughout many data-centers over the world. To be able to freely achieve his business goals, the Client processes an extremely large amount of data in a very short period of time - the guarantee of infrastructure reliability and its constant availability are crucial.
On-premise was chosen, as traditional cloud providers would prove expensive, whilst providing no significants benefits or improvements.
Regions of operation
TimelineThe Client has requested our support in the matters of infrastructure development, further DevOps methodology enactment, and reaching the goal of fully micro-service based infrastructure which he had planned and pursued. A well-planned infrastructure was already present, so we were able to quickly and efficiently begin the extension and development on this foundation.
How we started?
At the start, Sysdogs swiftly took over the current infrastructure. We have begun to deploy new components, provide day-to-day support with any issues that appeared, and steered both the existing and the newly-launched components towards the micro-service model envisioned by the Client.
Challenges we faced?
Maintenance, management and further development of infrastructure split into workload and shared storage clusters, that could process 4 petabytes (4,000,000 GB!) of data growing by 200-500 GB every day, with guaranteed availability and efficiency, in a constant, continual work cycle.
Implementation of configuration management, including deployment of an entire on-premise Kubernetes, using SaltStack.
Support in migration to microservices-based approach, utilizing on-premise Kubernetes.
Creation of CI/CD processes for the on-premise Kubernetes cluster.
Support for the dispersed, enormous shared storage cluster architecture, mitigating present and predicted performance issues.
Deployment of various toolkits and software required by the Developers.
