The Challenges
“Our major markets include India, UK, the U.S and Canada. For domestic markets, the wedding cards need to be exclusive and different from others and for our worldwide clients, we provide a varied spectrum of print and design related services like brochures and stationary; invitations and greetings; exhibition banners and displays; packaging and bags to labels and tags.
SO, we had good market reach, high traffic, huge workloads, but were experiencing high network latency,” says Kanika Kheria, partner at Seven Colours.
Previously, Seven Colours relied on a standalone server to support its design and development activities. However, this approach led to major challenges. There were major performance issues with the server and network. Background applications and programs further slowed down the complete system. With server and network getting slow, the output also got down. Once, RAM was also increased corresponding to the number of workstations, but to no avail.
“Our designers and developers required more compute and storage capacity to manage their workloads. Also, we wished to have flexible processing speed – we were paying for unused compute on weekends and holidays and were not getting full performance when we needed it 100% on working days,” said Nitesh Kheria.
“We wanted to eliminate all barriers and provide freedom to our designers and developers to innovate, with speed,” he added.
