    SHI’s AWS team consults on and streamlines this customer’s Amazon EKS environment.


    A financial services company, specializing in student and educational loans, upgraded their IT architecture and prepared to launch a new portal for end users within a two-week timeframe.

    As a result, the customer’s small staff of infrastructure engineers took over their Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) environment but needed help learning how to implement automation and integration with Amazon EKS. The team struggled with scaling, service deployment, package management, and infrastructure automation.


    SHI provided consultation services, advising the customer on creation of Automated Pipelines using Code Commit, Code Deploy, and Code Pipeline. Working with their team, SHI cloud architects developed a more streamlined process using Azure DevOps, GIT, and Helm to streamline automation and deployment lifecycles.

    In addition, SHI’s AWS consultants assisted with development of Pod management with Amazon EKS, autoscaling for Ingress controllers, and development of a more automated role and role binding within their clusters and pods.


    The customer successfully met a very tight timeline within the two weeks that were required to go live with their latest portal.

    They also developed and adopted a more advanced continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) and DevOps process within their EKS environment, allowing them to move away from their “on-demand” node groups and into the “managed” node groups. This solution was cost-effective and enabled better performance.

    SHI continues to hold regular meetings with their infrastructure team, covering topics related to Kubernetes and AWS integration, as well as best practices and custom deployment models to meet the needs of their ongoing container and DevOps projects.
