Discovery phase and planning
The preliminary research was our starting point for the full-scale discovery phase. We discussed the client’s business goals, requirements, and expectations.
Alpacked examined the existing infrastructure environment and cloud architecture powering their NFT marketplace. The current state was compared to the desired state to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement.
After agreeing on the scope of work, we created an action plan that outlined how to address each challenge. The document covered the specific tasks, work schedule, budget requirements, and deliverables.
Implementation and execution
Solution #1: Optimized infrastructure monitoring
We optimized the New Relic observability platform for the client’s development team. This included the following:
- Setting up performance metrics. Relevant metrics provided the company with real-time data about the core containers and applications on the cluster.
- Adding automated alerts. These alerts should notify the development team of potential issues to help them avert service-disruptive threats.
- Creating custom dashboards. Charts and dashboards simplified monitoring of the platform’s infrastructure by showcasing essential information at a glance.
