CROC Cloud puts Dostavista delivery service on the fast track

4 minutes

Dostavista, an international delivery service, has chosen CROC Cloud as the keystone of its business operations in Russia, thus ensuring fast response to changing customer demands. Now, the cloud provider hosts all customer infrastructure, including the portal for Dostavista service users to place orders.

Dostavista has been following the Cloud First strategy and thus using resources of various cloud providers since 2016. Outsourcing was a strategic choice since the seasonal nature of business creates a need for lower capital expenditure and faster capacity scaling. For example, as holiday season approaches, the number of orders doubles, thus requiring a corresponding increase in computing capacity.

"Cloud is the only possible and economically feasible tool for Dostavista since it allows us to adapt to a changing situation and expand capacity during peak loads. Forecasting resource needs is often challenging. Despite the expected low summer season, this year's pandemic kept couriers extremely busy. CROC Cloud helped us adjust to new realities," said Denis Krasnoper, Infrastructure Development Team Lead, Dostavista.

The customer's infrastructure is located in two CROC Cloud zones – the main and backup sites – to ensure high fault tolerance and data availability in case of disaster. Dostavista also uses S3 object storage within CROC Cloud. 

"Experience shows that, during peak loads, you either urgently (in one hour) deploy tens of virtual machines or watch how increased load makes your service unavailable for customers. Only cloud technology is capable of meeting operational requirements in such a scenario, and that is why seasonal businesses like retail, logistics, development & construction, and some online services opt for this solution," said Maxim Berezin, Business Development Director, CROC Cloud Services.
