“beSharp is a young and ultra-competent team driven by an innate passion for technology. The support they offer us is not merely as suppliers, but as a partner that believes in our projects as much as we do”

Dario Brignone – CTO Satispay



The Challenge

  • Overcome the limitations of a monolithic infrastructure based on traditional data centers and meet the dynamism, speed and agility demands of a rapidly growing start-up.
  • Speed up the implementation of architectural changes and the issue of new releases.
  • Contain management costs and gain infrastructure intervention autonomy.

The Solution

  • Hot migration of the infrastructure from on-premise to the Cloud without any service downtime.
  • Adoption of the Continuous Delivery paradigm.
  • Automatic adaptation of the number of resources to the number of users, and costs in line with traffic trends.

The Benefits


Thanks to the modularity of the new infrastructure, Satispay has obtained control and management autonomy over the architecture.

The use of Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon Elasticsearch, Amazon Kinesis and Kibana has made it easy to collect monitoring metrics and debug actions.


The Continuous Delivery/ Continuous Integration pipeline based on the combination of AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodePipeline allowed the technical team to move from one release per week to 30 releases per day.


With the Auto scaling and Load Balancing Satispay technicians have obtained a modular and scalable infrastructure that automatically manages the amount of resources in use and satisfies all the users’ requests: an environment with enterprise-like performance while maintaining start-up agility and costs.

About beSharp and AWS

beSharp guided Satispay in all the migration phases to the Cloud: beSharp Cloud Experts took care of the architecture design following the best practices of the AWS Well-Architected Framework and organized a hot migration with no service downtime.

beSharp used an on-the-job training approach to make Satispay technicians autonomous in managing the new infrastructure and supports them in managing the most critical processes with a 24/7 support service.
