Optimising Operating Costs on AWS


About Schoolzine


Schoolzine’s platform delivers communication and content solutions to schools across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the UK.

Since 2007, their one goal has been to provide schools with an easy to use, cost-effective parent engagement platform.

To account for substantial variation in content demand over school term and holiday periods, the company developed an AWS-based platform comprising both servers and serverless processing that automatically scaled to meet user demand.



Powered by AWS


Schoolzine's Challenge


Whilst Schoolzine’s platform reliably serviced users, the operating cost was increasing month-on-month at a rate far exceeding growth in users.




The Solution




AWS consulting structure analysis

In collaboration with Schoolzine, JourneyOne employed the AWS Well-Architected Framework to structure analysis of the platform with a focus on cost optimisation.


Prioritisation as part of AWS consulting

A backlog of enhancements and cost remediations was provided and prioritised by value.


AWS consulting and implementation

JourneyOne then implemented the highest-priority changes.


The Outcome






This resulted in savings in Schoolzine’s monthly AWS bill of up to


0%




Indeed, Schoolzine’s investment in JourneyOne’s AWS consulting services was paid for in the first full month of implementation.
