Enhancing the Efficiency of BigHoller's Mobile Application through Cloud Migration
BigHoller began as a restaurant online ordering company but has evolved over the years to provide comprehensive restaurant app solutions complete with a full suite of marketing tools.
BigHoller previously hosted its infrastructure in a dedicated private data center. With this traditional setup, the company faced many performance problems, maintenance costs, running costs, and efficiency issues. Core challenges included maintaining availability and uptime faced due to application downtime and latency issues. BigHoller’s infrastructure was also highly vulnerable to web attacks from external malicious actors. The data center infrastructure eventually succumbed to a significant ransomware attack that prevented the company from accessing its own system or personal files. All these issues were compounding to dramatically affect the company’s SaaS business.

By facilitating this move, Ibexlabs assisted BigHoller in accessing an average of 23% infrastructure cost savings, 7X fewer downtime hours, 62% more efficient IT infrastructure management, and increased high-availability thanks to AWS’ global Availability Zones. Now the company’s web application is highly available and BigHoller’s end users experience significantly lower latency when accessing the restaurant app solutions.
