PREP Design needed a better way to rollout their software and infrastructure to new regions around the world. Their methodology was manual, time-consuming, and prone to human error.

Crucially, it also provided the foundations for GDPR-compliance in those regions. PREP Design also determined that no other provider could meet their needs for bandwidth, performance, high availability, and cost efficiency.
PREP Design were already utilising numerous AWS Services in order to deliver the PREP Platform: AWS CodeBuild drives a CI/CD pipeline which deploys code via AWS Elastic Beanstalk to multiple environments.
Thus the logical choice for rolling out new copies of the PREP environment in an automated fashion was AWS CloudFormation.
Fitzroy IT analysed PREP's different regional setups, identified the variables between them and then implemented CloudFormation templates and documented the new rollout process.
With this new Infrastructure-as-Code implementation in-place, PREP Design is looking forward to selling into new regions on a regular basis. And with the success of this project, PREP Design is looking at further improvements including:
