Actual Reports auto-scaling on AWS

 

About Actual Reports

Actual Reports is the company behind PDF Generator API. PDF Generator API allows you to easily generate transactional PDF documents and reduce the development and support costs by enabling your users to create and manage their document templates using a browser-based drag-and-drop document editor.

Problem: High-Season volume growth and fluctuating demand

PDF Generator API is used by many e-commerce software providers. Actual Reports wanted to make sure that the service can handle holiday season traffic.

Solution: Auto-scaling on AWS

Actual Reports implemented an auto-scalable infrastructure on AWS. The solution is designed to automatically add computing resources when the load increases and release resources when they are no longer needed. This has enabled Actual Reports to meet the demand while keeping the costs under control.

Result

During the 2020 holiday season demand, peaks exceeded the off-season traffic volume by 9 times. PDF Generator API was able to adapt to increased load and serve all requests without performance or availability issues.
