Aptos Solutions UK provides in-store and online omnichannel solutions for retailers. For Aptos, the heart of their platform is related to databases - their databases contain crucial information related to products, customers, and content.
Challenge
A UK-based omnichannel solution provider, Aptos, was mandated to move to cloud-based hosting and, as such, they needed a robust and reliable solution that they could trust: they required a clustered solution based on open-source technology that would be easy to interpret and manage for an Ops team.
Solution
After an online search, Aptos found ClusterControl by Severalnines. Aptos chose the tool because it offered everything they needed to succeed including load-balancing, self-healing, and also the ability to stretch database clusters across AWS Availability Zones.

Why Severalnines

Coupled with skilled and responsive support, the ClusterControl platform has provided “a lot of confidence and sense of security” in their architecture.
“Excellent, the support is outstanding and has never failed to provide a resolution, or takes on board feature requests.”
