Modernizing monolithic CMS-website to improve scalability, agility and reliability.
Roto Rooter's original CMS-driven website had a lot of business logic bundled as plugins and modules in the CMS making it difficult for the Roto Rooter's team to make upgrades or changes to the site fast and efficiently. The site was a monolith java application that had modules spread across the site, leaving Roto Rooter's constantly frustrated with the site's performance, scalability and inconsistent page load times. With the current site’s limitations and Roto Rooter's mounting frustration and disconnect, the modernization project was born.
Delivering open-source Cloud application on the Azure platform.
Architech developed a road map that included a full migration to the cloud, converting the existing monolithic site into microservices with a headless CMS. Architech also built a custom backend to enhance performance and maintainability. By adopting an Azure Infrastructure, leveraging Java CMS, Angular, GitHub and Docker, Roto Rooter's was able to retire their legacy system and realize the benefits of the cloud. The impact of successfully modernizing Roto Rooter's legacy site, allowed them to maintain their industry dominance, and earned the Architech dream team the 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year award.
