Case Study - Multi-region EKS platform

We worked with Contember to develop an entire multi-region platform based on Elastic Kubernetes Service. All developers can deploy their code to multiple regions to their own temporary environment. Contember can now provide highly available low-latency backend to their end customers.

About Contember

Contember leverages AI and declarative programming for faster, cost-effective development, focusing on security, scalability, and customization to meet your needs.


Contember was at their very beginning of their cloud journey. The team was about to launch a new SaaS offering and they needed an experienced partner to help them navigate the cloud path. That's where pipetail comes in.

We helped them design and roll out the entire infrastructure from ground up on AWS, launching the SaaS product fast to the market.


We chose a managed kubernetes solution by AWS to accomodate the majority of our workloads. ArgoCD, a gitops approach solution, is used to deploy code to production and non-production environments. The infrastructure is highly available and elastic to scale out to serve the current demand and and scale in to stay cost-effective. Other managed solutions like Lambda, RDS Aurora, ElastiCache, etc. are also used rather than self-hosting our own solutions where SaaS option is available.


We chose a self-hosted Grafana + Prometheus + Loki + Tempo stack to be deployed on EKS.

All infrastructure components and the application itself expose telemetry in prometheus format to be scraped by prometheus. All components emit logs that are collected by promtail and pushed to Loki. All components emit distributed traces pushed to Tempo. Everything is then alerted by Prometheus Alert Manager and visualized in a centralized Grafana accessible by an SSO provider.

What we did

  • AWS
  • kubernetes
  • prometheus
  • ArgoCD

The team at pipetail helped us optimize infrastructure costs for our multi-tenant SaaS business. They helped us gain complete observability of our stack. Team is very flexible and there for you in case of any issue. We are very satisfied with our long-term cooperation.

Consolidation to k8s

For their multi-cloud strategy, Keboola has to consolidate to a unified platform that is supported by major public cloud vendors. Managed solution offering is preferable to a self-hosted one as that is the company’s philosophy in buying, rather than building, things that are not core-business related. Having a unified underlying infrastructure simplifies the provisioning and management of their product.
