Helping four million consumer clients find each other.

The Challenge

Fonecta’s services help four million consumer clients find each other and the services they seek, regardless of time, place, and mode of communication. However, their big data infrastructure was built upon heavy ICT structures. Before moving to the cloud, Fonecta's development models required a large number of physical servers and the entity was constructed by off-shore teams located across various time zones. Fonecta also used a lot of traditional and manually managed physical server capacity, which meant the configuration phase of development could take up to two months and typically cost tens of thousands of euros.

The Solution

Together with Fonecta’s internal teams and external software developers Nordcloud built a comprehensive solution using a wide-range of AWS products including EC2, S3, CloudSearch, DynamoDB, EMR, ElastiCache, RDS, and Redshift. To migrate Fonecta's infrastructure to the cloud, a test environment for their big data services was built, which then served as a development platform and all core services were relocated to the cloud using a phase-by-phase approach.

The Results

The cooperation brought significant savings and enabled lighter processes for swifter development. Today, the same systems can be implemented in just a few days and the cost is no longer prohibitively high. Fonecta was also able to reduce deployment cycles from 4 weeks to 1 hour, whilst simultaneously reducing overhead costs of infrastructure management. Nordcloud’s specialists work on the same premises with Fonecta's team to bring their cloud expertise and remove the previous obstacles of geographical distance.


"We decided to utilise the experts of our partner, who supplements our own team. The cooperation with Nordcloud yielded good results and continues today.”
