eHarmony: Accelerating DevOps with AWS
One of the challenges eHarmony faced with their current development environments was with what they called ‘runways.’ When they built new systems and services, before they deployed them into production, they deployed them to a runway. This allowed them to put all of their systems together and test them in an integrated fashion, which would signal if something was ready for takeoff. If things went well on a runway, they were pretty confident that they’d go well in production.
There were discussions around potentially using the cloud to augment eHarmony’s runway infrastructure. It was a learning process for them and they needed a reliable partner to lean on for guidance, that’s where Onica came in, worked beside their engineers, and enabled their internal operations team. Now eHarmony DevOps Engineers can spin up multiple runways in parallel, provisioning is faster, productivity has gone up, they can scale up and down, and costs are more manageable.
