Rockville, Md., April 28, 2016 – stackArmor, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) member and value-added reseller, today announced the successful migration of India’s top people background verification company JantaKhoj to the AWS Cloud. JantaKhoj seamlessly migrated its operations onto the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) using stackArmor’s StackBuilder automation platform and Agile Cloud Transition (ACT) methodology with zero downtime and data loss.
JantaKhoj, a premium background verification service provider and the first people search engine that covered more than 500 million Indians, relies on proprietary algorithms, software, and systems to operate. Ensuring the highest availability and integrity of its database is critical to meet customer requirements. Prior to the migration JantaKhoj experienced availability and equipment failure issues in a legacy data center.
“We’ve always been aware of AWS, but hesitated to migrate, thinking it might be difficult to manage our site in the cloud. stackArmor proved us wrong,” said JantaKhoj Chairman Ajit Gupta, who founded the company in 2009. “stackArmor not only suggested the most optimal configuration for our site, they helped us in end-to-end migration. We are now able to easily manage the site through AWS.”
stackArmor’s certified AWS Solution Architects migrated the JantaKhoj on-premise environments site to AWS with Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3). Since the migration to AWS, JantaKhoj has tripled performance improvement and increased reliability through best practices for cloud operations, such as regular backups with snapshots on highly available, secure, and redundant Amazon S3 storage that has 99.99% availability SLAs.
“JantaKhoj deals with sensitive data that requires the highest security, availability, and reliability,” said Gaurav “GP” Pal, Principal, stackArmor. “Based on our experience in engineering full-stack cloud solutions for healthcare, financial services, government, and security-focused commercial clients, we implemented a cost-effective and highly optimized solution on AWS selecting optimal Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon RDS, Encryption and Amazon S3 to ensure that data is safe and secure, and the site performs optimally.”
After a careful analysis of current and future requirements stackArmor migrated the site to AWS because it provides the high security, reliability, and flexibility JantaKhoj requires. The AWS Singapore Region was chosen because of its ability to deliver high site traffic from the Asian region.
“The migration of JantaKhoj to AWS is a milestone for us and allows us to grow our business faster and provide the scalability required to support increased customer traffic and load,” said Tarun Bangari, JantaKhoj Founder and CEO. Since migrating to AWS, JantaKhoj has started implementing DevOps practices by creating a Dev, Test, and Production pipeline using the wide variety of instances and services available as part of the platform, according to CEO Bangari.
“We are thrilled to see JantaKhoj leverage the AWS Cloud to power its background verification service and deliver a highly reliable, secure solution to its customers. Our APN Partners, like stackArmor, enable enterprises to migrate to AWS using well-architected solutions that deliver on the many benefits of the cloud – from cost savings to operational efficiency,” said Nitin Gupta, Head of Worldwide Financial Services Partners, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
