Who is F&I Express?
F&I Express is leading the automotive aftermarket industry into the digital age with innovative F&I eContracting solutions.
They provide their customers with a hosted PHP application, which helps the customers in eContracting.
FIE, which is the application that provides the eContracting functionality, processes anywhere between 5000 and 6000 contracts per day.
Issues with current setup
FIE is currently hosted on Rackspace, a public cloud provider. Their availability has being going down due to the setup they had running on Rackspace. There were other problems with the architecture:
- Not scalable
- Insecure network setup
- Lower than acceptable availability
- High restore time
F&I decided to move the infrastructure from Rackspace to AWS to make the application more stable and make the infrastructure more flexible and scalable.
We’re having a meetup on this topic on June 21st, 2018. There will be a deep dive into the process that we followed with more intricacies. We can have a discussion on the pros and cons of the architecture and how it can be potentially bettered.
The following will be discussed during the meetup:
- Proposed architecture
- How the architecture solves the problems previously faced?
- Why the decisions taken while designing the architecture were taken?
- Issues faced while implementing the architecture
- Issues faced while migrating data
