WooRank is now enjoying benefits beyond its original expectations – benefits realised much faster than would have been possible without support.
“If I had said when we set out on this project, ‘we are going to have an entirely new infrastructure and the old infrastructure ported within weeks’, people would have thought I was crazy. But by working with OpenCredo we got what we wanted much faster.” – Nils De Moor, CTO
The ability to use Docker containers with Mesos, has increased the speed in which new features can be deployed. This has – along with the reduced infrastructure complexity – encouraged greater experimentation within WooRank’s development team.
“Implementing Mesos has improved the speed our technical team operates by making it easier to monitor the servers and get the metrics we need. Also, by going from 100 plus to 15 servers, it is easier to maintain them as it is much easier to grasp what is happening. We can try things and if they don’t work, throw them away, The ability to play with these things has really improved and is now much easier.” – Nils De Moor, CTO
As a result of our partnership, we were able to leave the WooRank team with:
- Significantly faster deployment of new features (down from hours to minutes).
- Vastly reduced infrastructure complexity (down from 100+ to 15 servers)
- Server cost savings of up to 45%
OpenCredo helped WooRank port its existing servers to the new infrastructure within two weeks. By transferring knowledge to the WooRank team, we also enabled WooRank to manage their new infrastructure without the need for additional assistance.
“I would have never predicted that it could be done in that time period, so a ‘big thank you’ goes to OpenCredo for saying where things should go and how things should be done.”- Nils De Moor, CTO
