Moonfare illustration

Fintech start-up Moonfare serves 1,000 customers in their first year with zero costs using AWS

The power of AWS Lambda

Lambda functions were used in the project, allowing Moonfare to only pay micropayments for requests that have been handled – serverless lets you process code without needing to scale up servers.

The cost? The first million requests a month are totally free of charge, and once the limit has been exceeded, Moonfare is only charged $0.20 for every million requests.

Choosing the right tools, tech stack, and processes helped us build a product that is scalable and lets us onboard new users as Moonfare grows.

Discover Cloud Application Development

Cloud-based software or a cloud-based application is an app that runs in the cloud and is interacted with by web browsers and APIs. It provides the functionality of a native application, and its servers are usually located in a remote data center operated by a third-party cloud services infrastructure provider.

There are numerous benefits of cloud application development. Firstly, apps can be updated, tested, and deployed quickly, accelerating your response to your business needs, which increases agility and flexibility. Secondly, cloud-based applications rely on application programming interfaces (APIs), which provide access to third-party data sources and storage services. As a result, cloud applications can be smaller and are developed faster.

To meet the expectations of our clients, we use the latest tools such as Discover powerful tools to drive revenue in the cloud, including, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, CircleCI, GitHub, Terraform, Bicep, Kubernetes Docker, and many more

These technologies enable us to maintain environment consistency and high predictability throughout the entire development and deployment process. As a result, we can spot all potential issues before they happen.

Scalable infrastructure

Our DevOps team makes sure that the infrastructure we use to develop apps is scalable and use cloud elasticity.

We use many external platforms, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform to fulfil our clients’ needs, from cloud computing, API management, cloud services, storage and content delivery to database and DNS management.

Our team also includes certified professional architects.

Continuous integration and deployment

Every pull request automatically creates an isolated 'integration' environment with its own database.

This allows developers and QA engineers to instantly preview the delivered code before it is merged with one of the main branches.

Using this workflow simplifies and facilitates the testing and deployment processes.

IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)

IaaS offers services such as pay-as-you-go compute, storage, networking, and virtualization.

IaaS gives users cloud-based alternatives to on-premise infrastructure, so expensive and usually overgrown investments in on-site resources can be omitted.

On-premises often requires a significant investment in physical hardware, and then a need to engage external IT contractors to maintain the hardware and keep everything working and up-to-date.

With IaaS, you can buy what you need, as you need it, and purchase more as your business grows.

IaaS solutions are highly flexible and highly scalable, and you can replace it whenever you need without losing money on your initial investment.

PaaS (Platform as a Service)

PaaS provides hardware and software tools to develop applications.

PaaS users tend to be developers. This means developers don’t need to start from scratch when creating applications, saving them a lot of time (and money) on writing extensive code.

PaaS is a popular choice if you want to create unique applications without spending a fortune or taking on all the responsibility.

SaaS (Software as a Service)

SaaS simplifies things, you just put data and pay a monthly fee for a bundle. With SaaS, you don’t need to install and run software applications.Everything is available over the Internet

You can usually access the software from any device, anytime via the Internet.

Most subscriptions include maintenance, compliance, and security services, which can be time-consuming and costly when using on-premise software.

SaaS also offers out-of-the-box solutions that are simple to set up.

You could have the basic software up and running within a matter of hours – and you’ll have access to customer service and support along the way.

What are the differences between IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS?

  • IaaS provides maximum flexibility when it comes to hosting custom-built apps, as well as providing a general data center.
  • PaaS is most often built on top of an IaaS platform to reduce the need for system administration. It allows you to focus on app development instead of infrastructure management.
  • SaaS offers ready-to-use, out-of-the-box solutions that meet a particular business need. Most modern SaaS platforms are built on IaaS or PaaS platforms.

What is cloud application development, and how can it help my business?


Here are the answers to some of the most common questions asked by our clients:
What is cloud application development?

Cloud-based software or a cloud-based application is an app that runs in the cloud and is interacted with by web browsers and APIs.

It provides the functionality of a native application, and its servers are usually located in a remote data center operated by a third-party cloud services infrastructure provider.

On top of that, cloud-based application development can be a gradual process. The components of the application and architecture can be implemented in steps. It also means lower costs for your business. As the major cloud infrastructure and service providers work at a very large scale, they can offer competitive prices that wouldn’t be possible with an equivalent on-premises installation. Cloud software is also characterized by higher data security.

Again, cloud services can afford the infrastructure for security measures specific to large enterprises, and your business can leverage them at lower prices. Cloud applications are also easier to scale and manage. They also provide greater responsiveness and don't need to permanently reside on local devices.

The biggest difference between cloud and web applications is their architecture. This is a key benefit for users – they can use a cloud app offline and update its content online when needed. A cloud application performs processing tasks on a local computer or workstation. An Internet connection is required primarily for downloading or uploading data.

A web application or web-based application, on the other hand, needs a continuous internet connection to function.

What are advantages of cloud computing

How can your product benefit from the possibilities offered by cloud computing?

Let’s take a look at the top benefits cloud computing services bring to the table and why more and more businesses decide to use them over setting up their own infrastructure.

  • Minimal upfront costs. When choosing a cloud computing service, businesses do not need to worry about any costs associated with purchasing and setting up servers or building and operating data centers.
  • Built-in high availability. The biggest cloud providers have complex infrastructures, comprising multiple data centers scattered across the globe.
  • Minimized management overhead. Some cloud computing services minimize the infrastructure required to serve customers, making it nearly non-existent from the client’s point of view (for instance, so-called serverless solutions).
    As a result, developers can focus on creation – they write the code or create a Docker image and deploy it to the cloud without the need to engage operations and infrastructure in the process.
  • Faster time to market. Through cloud migration, you can cut down the deployment of new servers from days to minutes, which results in faster time to market.
  • Build for innovation. Cloud providers offer plenty of resources, which you automatically get access to. You can use them to innovate and get ahead of the competition.
  • Cost optimization. Irrespective of the cloud provider you go for, most of them offer solutions for optimizing infrastructure costs. Some of them include on-demand or reserved instances and cost reduction for prolonged use of resources.
  • Always ready for higher traffic. Respectively, as your business grows, you will be able to automatically scale up your cloud computing solution so that it serves tens of millions of requests. This comes without the additional costs of setting up and maintaining additional in-house servers.
How to move applications to the cloud?
7 steps for a successful cloud migration:
  • Evaluate the opportunity. Name the business case that will drive your migration to the cloud. As your cloud migration progresses, this will help keep your eye on the ball. It will also allow you to avoid some of the most common cloud migration mistakes.
  • Assess your existing infrastructure. Then it's time to map your apps, databases, and other assets so that you can understand their interdependencies. A deeper understanding of what's inside your infrastructure will help you outline a migration plan.
  • Plan a safe migration order. You don't have to migrate all apps. Only account for apps that can benefit from the move. Prioritize items with fewer dependencies and gradually include all services. This process should get you to a preliminary execution plan, which will require further refinement.
  • Adjust and test your infrastructure. It's time to ensure that your infrastructure is ready for the move. So do your services comply with 12-factor application principles?
    Are your applications properly isolated and packaged? Do they support scaling?
    Can app copies work simultaneously?
    If all is good, you can execute the migration plan.
  • Deploy it!
  • Monitor your deployment.
  • Work towards a new operating model.
