The GATE ACADEMY
THE GATE ACADEMY was using a comprehensive dashboard with AWS, which was not only time taking in managing it but most the work was manual. With this there was inefficiency of servers with no automation in place. Infraguard was able implement a policy-based server management and user-friendly single dashboard for all functioning. With Infraguard custom policies were created and implemented for all server management and DevOps. Processes such as Key Management, Patch Management, Instance State Management were automated after Infraguard expertise were involved. These activities were defined for timely run on systems.
THE GATE ACADEMY is a premiere GATE coaching institute with centers across India. They are one of the first education institutes in India which leverages technology extensively to provide quality GATE coaching to their students. In 2016, they were awarded the fastest growing GATE institute in India. They have also received many industry recognitions and press coverage.

Operating in the education industry, technology is a huge driving force for them. Founders of The Gate Academy were tech-savvy and they knew that the lean model which they were trying to achieve was possible only if their policies were in place from the beginning.
With rapid increase in student numbers as well as physical centers, the infrastructure was scaling fast. They were heavily using AWS and while it offers a comprehensive dashboard, it is created with the entire landscape in mind, not a specific niche case. Even if someone understands the technology it might be difficult for them to navigate through the console. It needs specific training that could be both time-consuming and frustrating if one wants to concentrate on growing the business. The main areas where The Gate Academy wanted Infraguard to concentrate were as follows:
