Kumina built a new Kubernetes cluster in AWS for GameHouse from scratch.
As Kubernetes allows for self-service, GameHouse does not need to consult with Kumina for each
and every change. The advanced development pipeline created by GameHouse is used to
automatically deploy microservices, first to a staging environment and then, after a full QA
round, to the production environment. These deployments happen without downtime, by making full
use of the capabilities of Kubernetes to support updates. This process takes place without
involvement from Kumina, although we do provide guidance and assistance as needed.
“When we were setting up our environment in-house, we had some great guys
working on it but they were also learning as they went. The Kumina team has taken us to a
completely new level of expertise, quality of infrastructure and architecture, and
implementation process. Their level of support and the willingness to make everything work is
amazing. The effort the team puts in to make progress and their responsiveness has been
incredible.” – Markangelo Chiarelli, CTO, GameHouse
“If we compare our old set-up to the new set-up that Kumina implemented,
it is much better than what we had, so that’s a big plus. Of course, we still sometimes have
issues, but now we know what’s happening and why it’s happening. Our ‘magic issues’ are gone and
they are not ‘magic’ anymore. The team always investigates and finds the underlying problem in a
short time. They really want to understand what’s happening so it won’t happen again, instead of
fighting the same fires all the time. We really appreciate this. It feels like the Kumina team
are colleagues sitting in the room next to us, we can easily ask ‘hi, can you do this?’ Using
Slack is also a part of that, it has a really low barrier and we like this option. Communicating
this way makes it feel like Kumina is part of our team, it does not feel like working with an
outsourcing vendor at all.” – Sander Agricola, Lead Developer, GameHouse Technology.
