WatServ worked with Royal LePage’s technology team to re-engineer the application on Azure with the intent of reducing the hosting footprint, improving agility and removing reliance on their data centre.
During the design and architecture stage, WatServ and Royal LePage collaborated to transform the application – taking maximum advantage of the cloud platform. WatServ replaced virtual machines with Azure’s web, SQL platform and serverless functions services, and the team leveraged Azure’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) and other security services to protect the application from threats. They also enabled autoscaling for peak load.
Working together, the application architecture was also updated to eliminate the challenges that had resulted from the customized CMS and to provide overall improved UX, performance and security. To achieve this, the team converted the platform to an ASP.NET web framework and developed a sustainable design and architecture.
The result was an updated application, and a fully outsourced and managed hosting solution.
