Network Techlab served Rikhav Securities Ltd. To Increase Their Storage Backup Footprint And Compute Footprint Utilizing AWS’s Highly Scalable Features

Organization:
Rikhav Securities Ltd.

Location:
Mumbai, Maharashtra

Domain:
Financial Industry

Solution Offered:
EC2(SQL Server) & Web Application on AWS Cloud

Overview:
Rikhav Securities is an innovative Financial services company, offering a full suite of easy to use brokerage, investing and banking related solutions, delivered at competitive prices. Rikhav Securities aims to continuously add value to our client portfolios by using an efficient and optimal blend of Technology and Human Resources.

Challenges:
Rikhav Securities was experiencing significant growth through its customer base in the Financial industry. This growth was causing significant strain to their on-premise environment. Rikhav Securities, a SaaS product, requires 24 x 7 uptime. Rikhav Securities needed a highly redundant, secure environment so they could meet their customer’s expectations while avoiding significant upfront capital expenditures. They didn’t have a disaster recovery solution and backup.

Solution:
Network Techlab engaged with Rikhav Securities with a full turn-key migration of their on-premise server infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS). The migration enabled Rikhav Securities to scale quickly and dynamically, by utilizing EC2 elastic features, Amazon redundant object storage offering, S3, Site to site VPN and SQL server in EC2. Rikhav Securities was so pleased with the work that Network Techlab provided, they contacted them to further enhance the application. Network Techlab is currently refactoring the Rikhav Securities application environment to take advantage of more native features of the AWS platform to increase availability and scalability by reducing cost.

The Architecture:

The Rikhav Securities application utilizes a Three-Layered Services Application running the Microsoft Windows Operating System. This provides isolation of services for both security and performance. The entire environment resides in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to improve security in addition to Security Groups, Role-based permissions, custom Identity, and Access Management (IAM) rules. The Presentation Layer, Web Tier, utilizes ASP.NET and IIS to provide browser-based interaction. While on a separate subnet, the Business Layer or Application Server, was implemented using the .NET framework. The isolated Data Layer utilizes the relational database Microsoft SQL (MSSQL).

Network Techlab utilized the following AWS services in the production solution:

  • VPC (Virtual Private Cloud)
  • Security Groups, Roles & IAM (Identity & Access Management) Rules
  • NAT Gateway
  • Windows on EC2
  • MSSQL on EC2
  • Flow Logs
  • Site to site VPN
  • S3

Benefits:

  • Performance :
    The deployed architecture was optimized for serving Rikhav Securities customers more efficiently. By splitting out the Presentation, Application and Data Layers, Network Techlab could select the optimized AWS instance that best suited each workload.
  • Pricing:
    Rikhav Securities was able to reduce their costs of running systems locally which allowed their engineering team to focus on enhancing the product instead of spending time with hardware. Also, they were able to transition from a CAPEX cost model to an OPEX cost model that aligned better with their SaaS model.

Conclusion:
Rikhav Securities is now able to onboard more customers significantly faster than they could by using their in-house solution. Also on AWS, they can quickly scale their production stack as dynamically as their workloads scale. For example, Rikhav Securities can now easily increase their storage footprint and compute footprint utilizing AWS highly scalable features by properly taking data backup.
