About Humanitarian Operations
Humanitarian Operations is a charity dedicated to helping those experiencing hardship. Founded in 2004 as a First Responder Disaster Relief Agency, they have provided aid at sites of major disasters around the world and helped thousands of people whose lives have been drastically transformed by catastrophe. They use the AWS Cloud to help provide updates to infrastructure and feedback on their current setup and activities.
Humanitarian Operations wanted to improve the performance of their AWS Cloud so their team could focus on App development in preparation of a pending launch. The improvements were to address limited access to secure content along with the need to improve Auto-Scaling Group scalability and environment cost management. Humanitarian Operations also wanted to ensure the latest best practice was being observed and to further develop in-house IT knowledge
Humanitarian Operations approached CirrusHQ for assistance in addressing their requirements and in doing so provided improved scalability by deployments of their Auto-Scaling Group and enabling scheduled scaling actions. By turning off instances when not needed during development helped to reduce AWS costs and CirrusHQ also further improved backend environment security.
With the delivery of training, reviews, and support to the Humanitarian Operations development team, technical obstacles were removed, cost management and security were improved which gave confidence to the team to concentrate on the app leading up to the launch.
