ST Telemedia Global Data Centres

Building new AWS infrastructure for Singapore’s fastest-growing data centre provider

The client 

ST Telemedia Global Data Centres or STT GDC are a leading provider of data centre solutions to 9 different countries including Singapore, China, India and the UK and their parent company Temasek has a total revenue of £2 billion. 

The company provides a range of services including cloud connectivity and managed services and they serve a global range of clients spanning various industries such as healthcare, technology, banking and finance. 

STT GDC works with global agency Mullenlowe who helped STT GDC build their application for the site. However, they needed a partner to build the infrastructure and provide 24/7 full-stack support after go-live.

The challenge 

STT GDC were seeking to switch to AWS from their previous hosting provider as their website was not performing at its optimal level. As a large global organisation, STT GDC required a website that runs smoothly, efficiently and doesn’t experience downtime. Potential website outages could impact their brand reputation and revenue. 

They were also looking to optimise their spending costs on infrastructure and were aware that AWS could provide a cost-effective solution for their infrastructure build. STT GDC were working with the agency Mullenlowe to build their application on Drupal. Drupal is also traditionally a more cost-effective CMS to run infrastructure on.

As Mullenlowe typically focus on application code and builds and having seen the work Just After Midnight has previously done; building cost-effective AWS environments and supporting them 24/7 they knew we were the right sidekick for the project. 

The solution

As an AWS Advanced Partner, our team of experts were capable of designing, developing and executing a cloud-based, cost-optimised solution that effectively tackled all the issues presented by the client.

The infrastructure is a monolithic architecture that was quick to develop and deploy. With all the components of the application tightly coupled, a monolithic architecture allows for faster development and speed of deployment, which enabled STT GDC to launch its new application quickly and cost-effectively. 

Mullenlowe built and optimised the application to move it to a newer version of Drupal, our support team managed the application after go-live. Our team of 24/7 full-stack support experts provide gold-standard support round the clock, to proactively manage the site, spotting issues before they even become a problem, preserving STT GDC’s reputation and revenue.

The results 

  • Successfully provisioned new AWS infrastructure on Drupal CMS
  • Rebuilding infrastructure on AWS has enhanced the performance of the site and improved the customer experience, protecting the reputation of STT GDC 
  • The full stack is supported 24/7 by a skilled team of engineers, resolving incidents around the clock
