Amazon Web Service has recently featured Tuned Global in a Case Study on how AWS has been able to help reduce costs and increase efficiency.
In the Case Study, Tuned Global's CEO Con Raso, shares his thoughts on finding the most suitable cloud provider, what it takes to be part of the growth in new markets, and how the partnership has helped streamline important aspects of the business. “With our on-premises infrastructure, we needed to understand a new customer’s user pipeline and then commit to infrastructure resourcing. This process could take anywhere from three to six months,” says Raso. “With the scalability of AWS, we have reduced onboarding to a couple of weeks.”
The article goes on to say: "Working with base2Services, Tuned Global completed the migration to AWS in six weeks. In that time, Tuned Global identified a bottleneck limiting the number of music files—uploaded by publishers using the industry-standard secure file transfer protocol (sFTP)—that Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) could ingest. The solution, developed in partnership with base2Services, was to use Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) to stage the sFTP files before passing them to Amazon S3. “It helped us improve ingestion speeds by 10 times,” says Raso. Tuned Global then rearchitected the solution to minimize the time that music files resided in Amazon EFS. “The work we did on our architecture went really well. We found a solution to ingest potentially millions of tracks without performance issues using AWS.”
Tuned Global can now onboard customers faster with its AWS infrastructure than an on-premises infrastructure because of the cloud’s flexibility. “With our on-premises infrastructure, we needed to understand a new customer’s user pipeline and then commit to infrastructure resourcing. This process could take anywhere from three to six months,” says Raso. “With the scalability of AWS, we have reduced onboarding to a couple of weeks.” The scalability also means Tuned Global can meet customer pipelines whatever their size. For example, Tuned Global has signed a partnership with LINE MUSIC, a music-streaming service in Japan, to deliver songs to 220 million global monthly users. “We scale to whatever our customers’ requirements may be, anywhere in the world,” comments Raso."
