Agility and flexibility resulting in a fully automated AWS infrastructure
Outstanding user experience turns two million customers into a billion euros of online revenue
Veikkaus Oy is the Finnish national betting agency. It is owned by the Finnish state, and has an exclusive betting license in Finland. Veikkaus games are estimated to generate nearly one billion euros a year. The revenue is used for the benefit of Finnish society. Veikkaus’ beneficiaries are active in the fields of culture, sports, science, youth work, social welfare and health, and the equine industry.
Their AWS usage had increased over time and the current needs had outgrown the initial limits. The deployment was automated and the next step was to fully automate the infrastructure to enable easy duplication and maintenance. There is a need to increase usage even further.
Together with Veikkaus’ experts, we built a fully automated AWS infrastructure, secure secrets management, dockerized services, and rewrote services to utilize AWS services when possible. The infrastructure scales according to usage and provides the Veikkaus.fi content.
During the project, we’ve been able to contribute in the following areas: infrastructure tooling and implementation, secure secrets management design and implementation, Dockerization and running in ECS, and AWS managed service usage design and implementation. The end result was a fully automated AWS infrastructure.
We chose a flexible partner that understands our business needs. They helped Veikkaus during the entire AWS infrastructure project, providing all the technical expertise and help we required. We are very satisfied with their agility and flexibility.-Timo Paajanen, VP, ICT Service Operations & Infrastructure, Veikkaus
