Case Study: Topline Ventures

Topline is a “Sitebuilder as a Service” Pioneer Looking to Expand Globally and Reduce In-House Resource Dependency

iTMethods worked with Topline Ventures to develop a strategic cloud roadmap for the future.

Cloud Adoption

Topline Ventures had a low friction journey to the cloud, as iTMethods managed their critical infrastructure on the AWS Cloud.

Data Residency

By having a partner manage their AWS, Topline was able to fulfill all data residency requirements for new European markets.

Low Friction Migration

I consider iTMethods a part of my team. We don’t need a full-time expert in five different areas, nor do we need to hire a jack of all trades. With iTMethods, it’s like we have a team of experts on staff. We rely on them to effectively manage cloud automation and infrastructure, letting us focus on serving our customers.”

– Robert Bray, CEO @ Topline Ventures

Company Background

Topline Ventures has been in business for 15 years and is the industry leader in delivering independent site builder applications for Hosts, ISPs, Registrars, and Website Designers. In 2001, it pioneered providing “Sitebuilder as a Service” to the hosting industry, introducing a pay-as-you-go model for leading site builder technologies. Today, over 2,000 service providers around the world offer a site building service based on Topline’s services.

The Challenge

For the first 10 years of operation, Topline ran and managed its own hardware. Topline moved to the AWS cloud itself, but managing those resources became very demanding. With expansion on the horizon, including into European markets, Topline needed an expert partner who knew how to get the most out of the AWS cloud – architecting and managing workloads to ensure scalability, security, and complete compliance for its customers.

iTMethods worked with Topline to develop a roadmap for the future. Its team handled every step of the migration to a new AWS cloud and has been managing Topline’s critical infrastructures ever since – ensuring a smooth transition for Topline’s clients.

The Solution

iTMethods integrates with Topline’s team. “I consider iTMethods a part of my team. We don’t need a full-time expert in five different areas, nor do we need to hire a jack of all trades. With iTMethods, it’s like we have a team of experts on staff. We rely on them to effectively manage cloud automation and infrastructure, letting us focus on serving our customers.”

The AWS cloud meets data residency requirements. Topline was pursuing new opportunities for growth, especially in Europe. Some countries require certain types of data be stored in specific geographic areas. With regions around the world, the AWS cloud gives companies the flexibility to deploy apps in a variety of locations.

iTMethods brings new ideas to the table. Technology is always changing, presenting new ideas and business opportunities. Topline must make the most of those advancements and iTMethods helps Topline identify ideas and implement them.

iTMethods manages Topline’s critical infrastructures on an ongoing basis. “To start with a good platform is one thing,” said Robert. “To keep it going in the right direction is critical, and that’s where iTMethods continues to fit in.”

The Results

Architecting Topline’s critical infrastructures on the AWS cloud enabled them to overcome challenges associated with traditional hardware – maximizing scalability, security, and reliability. Leveraging iTMethods ongoing support for automation and regulatory compliance lets Topline focus on its own growth and development.

iTMethods’ ongoing management ensures a seamless experience for Topline’s customers. “My goal is to have our platform be invisible,” said Robert. “When everything runs properly, it becomes transparent. It becomes ‘just the solution.’ iTMethods enables that.”
