Facing significant growth in the content management space, Zesty.io needed a solution that would maximize its cloud-focused approach. With Google Cloud Platform, Zesty.io found a platform that offers performance gains such as containerizing support along with simple scalability that doesn’t require significant administration.

Google Cloud Results

  • Increases monthly capacity for platform requests from 2 million to nearly 500 million queries
  • Scales staffing to a 1:7 ratio of infrastructure staff to back-end developers
  • Simplifying infrastructure management improves employee productivity, allowing for increased focus on future customer growth
  • Provides uptime of 99.99% over 12 months
  • Decreases cluster cost by identifying resource-heavy services with Stackdriver allowing for reduced consumption

Helped grow monthly platform requests by 250x

Enabling Change

Solutions: Hybrid Cloud

Zesty.io uses Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) to containerize its platform infrastructure for more efficient application deployment and performance. Thanks to these gains, the company only requires a third of the back-end staff that a traditional on-premises infrastructure would typically require. App Engine and partner Fastly are similarly vital for the company, as they drive the platform’s APIs and content delivery abilities. As a content delivery network solution, Fastly helps ensure that customer pages remain up regardless of service interruptions and uptime issues.

Resources including Cloud Load Balancing, Stackdriver, and BigQuery assist with performance scaling and monitoring. Other tools such as Cloud SQL, Cloud Storage, and Compute Engine help Zesty.io team members offload routine tasks through automation and improved management tools, allowing them to spend more time on higher-priority activities. G Suite resources including Gmail and Drive assist employees and marketing team members as a general productivity solutions by making it easier to share and receive vital files between teams.

“We’ve seen platform requests grow from just 2 million to nearly a half billion per month, and Google Cloud Platform supports this growth. Because of this, we can focus more on talking to our customers, listening to their needs, delivering more effective cloud content management system services, and ensuring industry leading SLAs.”
