Springstone Inc.

Challenge

Springstone, Inc. develops, builds, and operates hospitals that treat mental illness and substance abuse in the United States. Springstone, incorporated in 2010, is based in Louisville, Kentucky and develops and manages hospitals in eight states with more facilities currently under construction.

Springstone relies heavily on its multiple hospital websites to inform and educate patients and their families on their treatment philosophy and programs. Springstone required a scalable platform that could grow along with their expanding portfolio of hospitals.

Solution

A secure, scalable, and reliable technological infrastructure was essential to Springstone’s success in the digital landscape. The Solodev platform, built on top of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, provided the solid foundation necessary to manage the servers, databases, and user-facing websites required by Springstone.

Solodev was able to quickly auto-scale capacity up and down as Springstone’s multi-site computing requirements changed by leveraging AWS' Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). For increased security, AWS replicates applications and data across multiple data centers in various regions using Availability Zones, increasing redundancy and fault tolerance further by replicating data between geographic regions.

Solodev utilized AWS’ Elastic File System (EFS), which provides simple, scalable file storage for use with Amazon EC2 instances in the AWS Cloud. Amazon EFS allows Solodev to create and configure file systems quickly and easily. By using EFS, storage capacity for Springstone’s multiple websites is elastic, growing and shrinking automatically as files are added and removed, so Springstone has the storage they need, when they need it.

Solodev employed AWS OpsWorks to configure and operate Springstone applications, which includes automation to scale Springstone's applications based on time or load, monitoring to help troubleshoot and take automated actions based on the state of Springstone's resources, permissions, and policy management to make management of multi-user environments easier.

Solodev utilizes Amazon RDS to set up, operate, and scale relational databases (MySQL) for Springstone in the cloud in conjunction with AWS CloudFront - a global content delivery network. Utilizing AWS CloudFront, the delivery speed of Springstone’s massive amount of facility and treatment materials was vastly accelerated.

Result

Built in Solodev on the AWS Cloud Infrastructure, Springstone’s multiple websites feature comprehensive functionality that allow each hospital to utilize the Solodev platform to rapidly deploy location-specific content to their user-facing websites. With granular permissions, features and functionality that allow for quick updates to their user-facing websites, Springstone also enjoys the benefits of unparalleled security and structural integrity provided by Solodev’s partnership with Amazon Web Services.
