Situation

Realtor.com had implemented a middleware solution for its integration needs and its complete infrastructure was hosted in a third-party data center. The client wanted to leverage the middleware platform to realize strategic benefits, such as high availability, performance, scalability, security, seamless integrations, and solutions to tactical business challenges.
Realtor.com needed to overcome specific challenges to meet the following objectives:

  • Deployment of a non-standard architecture to production with separate instances running in parallel
  • Achievement of high availability requirements in production architecture
  • On-Demand scalability to meet business demands during high load times
  • Complete automation, deployment, and artifact synchronization procedures between production environments
  • Minimization of manual intervention; reduction in time required to stand up a new environment
