Challenges

MARIA TASH had its ecommerce storefront on Magento 1 when Adobe announced its end-of-life (EOL). To ensure the security of their site beyond June 2020, they reached out to Webscale and signed up for Webscale M1 Support to defend their site against exploits from the point of entry to the backend infrastructure. MARIA TASH also moved to Webscale fully-managed cloud delivery on AWS.

As they were planning their Magento 2 re-platforming, they needed a technology provider who could act as their extended IT team, and address their concerns around availability and security with deep Magento expertise.

MARIA TASH wanted to ensure the availability of their ecommerce storefront, especially during peak traffic. They also wanted comprehensive security to provide a safe transaction environment for their customers distributed globally. They started evaluating technology solutions for 100% uptime and the ability to manage sudden surges in traffic with auto-scaling. They also needed an expert in ecommerce security. After evaluating the options, they upgraded to the Webscale Pro cloud delivery plan on AWS.

Solution

MARIA TASH has deployed Webscale Pro with cloud hosting on AWS for their new Magento 2 storefront that went live in February 2022. They also used Webscale CloudEDGE Application Testing as an add-on to evaluate their new site for scalability and performance before going live.

 The primary reasons for the purchase included predictive auto-scaling, 360-degree security, 24x7x365 DevSecOps support, deep observability and real-time control.
