Bright
By Three

Colorado-based Non-Profit Chooses Qwinix Technologies to Optimize Amazon Web Services (AWS) Application Performance.

Bright by Three was founded by former Governor Roy Romer, and previous Procter & Gamble Chairman Brad Butler, in 1995. Since its inception, this Colorado based non-profit has reached thousands of families across the state each year — and nearly 21,000 families last year alone. The organization provides support and early education information for families through a three-step program. Bright by Three is funded entirely by charitable contributions and has a goal to support the average 68,000 babies born in the state each year.

the Challenge

New application needed to be built from the ground up.

Thousands of users to support.

Non-profit did not have a large budget.

the Solution

Qwinix engineers built a completely new application from scratch. Set-up started in the lower environments and included a CI/CD pipeline to aid the deployment process and to handle the huge demand on the servers. The database was secured to protect a large number of phone numbers, and the application performance was optimized to correct a history of frequent crashes due to regularly scheduled jobs that consumed large amounts of RAM. The software design experts leveraged a microservice to divide up the services and AWS RDS with postgreSQL to ensure stability. The non-profit’s explosive data growth is now managed by a custom data warehouse built with AWS Redshift.
