Project Introduction:

In today’s digital era, mobile applications play a vital role in the banking industry, providing customers with convenient access to their accounts, transactions, and financial services. To ensure seamless and secure user experiences, many banks leverage various cloud-based services. So our client ECO-BANK needs an infrastructure that is Highly Available, Scaleable,  Fault tolerant, Flexible and Secure.


  1. AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS): AWS EKS allows the bank to deploy and manage containerized applications using Kubernetes. By utilizing EKS, the bank can easily scale its mobile application, ensuring high availability and optimal performance. The bank benefits from automatic scaling, load balancing, and seamless deployment of new features, providing customers with a reliable and responsive mobile banking experience.

  2. AWS Fargate: AWS Fargate enables the bank to run containers without the need to manage the underlying infrastructure. With Fargate, the bank can optimize resource utilization and improve cost efficiency by dynamically scaling containerized workloads based on demand. This capability ensures that the mobile application can handle peak loads during busy periods, such as salary disbursements or promotional campaigns, without compromising performance or security.

  3. AWS Aurora: AWS Aurora is a fully managed relational database service that offers high-performance, scalable, and secure database capabilities. By leveraging Aurora, the bank can store and manage critical customer data securely, ensuring data integrity and availability. The mobile application benefits from reduced latency, improved read and write performance, and automated backups, providing customers with real-time access to their account information and transaction history.

  4. Cloudflare: Cloudflare is a global content delivery network (CDN) and security provider. By integrating Cloudflare into the bank’s mobile application, the bank can enhance performance by caching static content closer to end-users, reducing latency and improving page load times. Additionally, Cloudflare’s security features protect against DDoS attacks, data breaches, and other cyber threats, safeguarding sensitive customer data and maintaining the integrity of the mobile application.

  5. Datadog: Datadog is a cloud monitoring and observability platform. By leveraging Datadog, the bank gains real-time visibility into the mobile application’s performance, including response times, resource utilization, and error rates. This allows the bank’s IT teams to proactively identify and resolve any performance bottlenecks or issues, ensuring a seamless and reliable mobile banking experience for customers.

  6. Doppler: Doppler is a secrets management solution that helps secure sensitive information, such as API keys, database credentials, and other configuration settings. By utilizing Doppler, the bank can securely store and manage its application secrets, ensuring that sensitive information is protected from unauthorized access or exposure. This enhances the overall security posture of the mobile application and helps the bank adhere to regulatory requirements and industry best practices.


By leveraging AWS EKS, AWS Fargate, AWS Aurora, Cloudflare, Datadog, and Doppler, the eco-bank enhances its mobile application’s performance, scalability, security, and observability. Customers benefit from a reliable and responsive mobile banking experience, with faster load times, real-time access to account information, and robust security measures. These services enable the eco-bank to maintain a competitive edge in the digital banking landscape while ensuring customer satisfaction and trust in their mobile application.
