Are you concerned that cloud is a complicated beast, and that getting all the little details (such as autoscaling, high availability, and lifecycle management!) right will take days on end?
The team at PeerJ felt the same when they adopted Amazon Web Services.
Just like you, they were concerned that building tooling to manage their cloud infrastructure would redirect their engineering efforts away from the goal they set out to achieve: building PeerJ, and revolutionizing how scholarly knowledge is published today.
So, instead of building the tooling in-house, the PeerJ team selected Scalr. Was it the right choice? Jason Hoyt, Ph.D., Co-founder and CEO of PeerJ puts it better than we could:
“Thanks to Scalr, we’ve been able to focus on what matters to our business: building PeerJ. Naturally, infrastructure management is critical, but it’s definitely not our core business. Scalr’s Cloud Management software has been a great help in automating that aspect of our operations.
The good news is that the PeerJ team agreed to sit down with us, walk us through their adoption process, and tell us how they cracked those cloud challenges one after the other.
If you’re curious to learn how they succeeded, and would like the same for your business, you should check out the new case study we’re releasing in collaboration with PeerJ.
