Previously the NextRadioTV infrastructure was composed of a farm of 80 physical servers. The management of this many machines multiplies the risk of incident. In practice, we received alerts night and day, especially concerning hardware issues. We were forced to mobilize a team of system administrators to perform a job that had little actual value. Today, the Dedicated Cloud solution allows us to delegate hardware management to OVH. Except for the Galera data base cluster and the two machines used for monitoring, we now use the infrastructure without worrying about the hardware layer.
The Dedicated Cloud solution has simplified the multi-use of one platform to the benefit of all the group’s sites and applications. Recap: We have gained flexibility while reducing our cost by approximately 40 to 50%. It is now much faster to deploy a new VM rather that a dedicated server.
The complexity of the project resides in the way that the migration of dedicated servers to Dedicated Cloud is made without any interruption to service. For this, first we configured all the dedicated servers in the same vRack. Next we deployed the web servers on the Dedicated Cloud before configuring the DNS to point towards the new infrastructure. The migration of the MySQL servers to the Galera cluster was carried out by MySQL replication.

The infrastructure handled the load from the first to last day of the World Cup and well after as this architecture was permanently adopted by sofoot.com. The elasticity of the architecture that we imagined (RunAbove instances rented for peak periods) is delivered at very a reasonable cost.

Load peaks while in production rest in the estimated limits with the maximum of 320,000 unique visitors/day, 2,300 requests/second and a tripling of the load in less than 30 seconds (in general at the end of a match). During the 2 week period following the World Cup, sofoot.com established new records in site visits with peak loads of 360,000 unique visitors/day, 3,000 requests/second and a tripling of the load which occurred in less than 20 seconds. This phenomenon was due to news about player trades and an influx of new visitors who became familiar with the site during the World Cup. These peaks were fully amortized by the infrastructure in place, which is good news ahead of Euro 2016.

Today we are testing the automatic provisioning of additional virtual machines using the RunAbove API, (based on thresholds in the monitoring tools) as to benefit from a fully elastic and 100% self-administered infrastructure. Work is still required to simplify the infrastructure in a manner that reduces the time required to put a new machine in production from 20 to just 4 minutes. We will soon put online the SoPress shop. We have chosen to rely on the OVH PrestaShop SaaS solution proposed by OVH.com, this offer provides a quite interesting price/performance ratio.

My project was simple yet demanding - I wanted to be more dynamic in managing my remote workers and to provide them with greater comfort and secure access on their mobile terminals.

Availability was critical, the solution had to guarantee constant availability during working hours, and continuity of service.

We opted for 2 dedicated servers from the Infrastructure range, powerful in terms of CPU/RAM and comprised of a private network for synchronization. Having a large amount of memory, permits scalability if other applications are deployed.

Today, my teams have access to their workspace, files and our CMMS from anywhere in the world in an environment that provides high performance, security and redundancy.

The sales revenue we generated from Dedicated Cloud increased by 400% in two years.
