About TimesNow News

Launched in 2006, TimesNowNews is an India-based English news channel operated by Bennett & Coleman and Company Limited (BCCL), a leading global media conglomerate. As a major brand of the Times Group and one of India’s most popular English newspapers, it encompasses multiple digital properties that work together to provide a complete viewer experience platform. With a revenue model revolving around advertising and content licensing, digital infrastructure and operations are critical components of TimesNowNews’s media business, with blazing-fast, real-time, and always-available content delivery needs and capabilities.

Challenge

The client’s operating model relies on frequent release cycles. In order to align with their business goals, they needed Brillio to leverage its expertise to deliver faster release cycles and optimize the processes and infrastructure.
The customer also wanted parallel admin control for users, not only for partners, to manage their infrastructure, as well as enhanced security and governance.

Solution

Brillio has created multiple CloudFormation templates for different environments to reduce manual provisioning and further optimize the processes.

We have leveraged our deep AWS DevOps expertise, along with CI/CD tools for rapid and safe software delivery.

For further cost-reduction, we have started monitoring costs using AWS cost management features. We’ve helped the client set up budgets and alerts in case of unexpected spikes.

  • Baked in the monitoring agent installation in the AMI which is part of the Autoscaling group launch config
  • Perform a monthly audit on AWS environment to scan the vulnerabilities in the security group ports, find IAM users with no MFA, rotate credentials, etc.

Technology Landscape:

  • AWS Cloud, AWS DevOps, AWS CloudWatch, AWS CloudFormation

Business Benefits
