About College Dekho
Founded in 2015, College Dekho bridges the gap between students seeking admissions and colleges providing different courses. With 36,000+ colleges in its database and about 2.1 million web visitors per month, it ranks among the top 1500 sites in India.
College Dekho is a disruptive technology-based educational advertising startup that offers both B2B and B2C solutions and provides comprehensive information about colleges and admissions to students.
As a result of growing traffic, College Dekho faced several challenges in availability and security. The website used another cloud that did not support the scalability of its infrastructure. This prompted them to switch to the AWS platform.
The challenge was the migration of the web application, services, and the database with zero downtime. College Dekho required a cloud infrastructure that could scale and support up to 5,000 concurrent students browsing colleges during the admission season. And, all this had to be done in a cost-optimized manner.
Goognu facilitated the smooth migration of College Dekho to the AWS cloud infrastructure without any downtime. Goognu’s expertise in this domain helped them to optimize the costs and ensure the data security remained intact throughout the process.
Let’s look at some of the key points of this project;
College Dekho was successfully migrated to the AWS platform while ensuring cost optimization. There was no downtime experienced. The product design allows it to make location-specific SEO friendly pages based on user searches in a given location.
College Dekho is now able to scale its services and multiple resources based on the load. It can handle 5,000 concurrent visitors. And, the dynamic website continues to serve highly engaged and increased web traffic.
Goognu was able to help College Dekho by designing an infrastructure that hosts all its content and updates in one place at the least cost. With the help of AWS web services, we were able to achieve availability, scalability, and security.
The organization can deliver all its services to users in multiple locations using the AWS platform. By migrating to AWS, it is saving administrative costs and overcoming several challenges faced on other clouds. This helps College Dekho to maintain cost-optimized operations.
