Exactpro specializes in developing and testing software for leading financial institutions such as stock exchanges, investment banks, brokers and technology solution providers. The geography of Exactpro projects spans the whole world including the UK, Italy, France, Austria, Spain, Holland, Norway, USA, Canada, Singapore, UAE, South Africa, Australia, Sri Lanka and other countries.
Exactpro was facing a problem of setting up a software testing environment based on Amazon Web Services. A separate isolated sandbox was needed for each project; moreover, the infrastructure of each testing project had to be protected from unauthorized access and data loss if the project administrator’s password were compromised.
Softline specialists have configured the system in such a way that new sandboxes can be created automatically and feature all the required access settings as well as restrictions on the consumption of cloud services. AWS-based software testing projects can now be launched much faster; no manual sandbox setup is needed, and cloud costs can be managed for each specific project.
"Exactpro was looking for a way to deploy new sandboxes in the AWS cloud as fast as possible. Softline specialists promptly consulted us on the features and practical aspects of Amazon cloud services. After that, at the very beginning of the project, we had jointly set up security policies and configurations. This approach helped us avoid mistakes at the start of the project and provided an important opportunity to automatically configure and monitor all subsequent projects, which has led to major savings,” said Evgeny Vereshchagin, head of IT department at Exactpro.
"AWS is certainly a leader in the cloud market. Indeed, it offers a large number of cloud services that are highly flexible in terms of configuration, security, and integration with third-party solutions. These advantages, however, can create some difficulties for companies who are just starting to work with this platform. Softline is ready to help its clients understand AWS basics and organize migration to the cloud in accordance with best practices and its global experience in cloud projects," comments Alexander Zatesa, Head of AWS division at Softline.
