Noorisys Technologies migrates from AWS EC2 to MySQL HeatWave for big savings

IT solutions company deploys MySQL HeatWave for improved performance, security, availability, lower costs, and 24/7 support.


MySQL HeatWave improved the performance and scalability of our SaaS applications. It's almost half of what I was paying for AWS. We can now count on fixed low costs and predictable budgets, thanks to Oracle Universal Credits. As opposed to AWS, there is no downtime in case of a server upgrade or downgrade.

Business challenges

In an effort to serve its customer FasterChecks—which provides UK citizens with a digital COVID self-testing platform for travel purposes—Noorisys required a robust, secure database backed by 24/7 support to manage heavy workloads of patient data.

Noorisys sought an enterprise-grade database to expand its services internationally. The company had developed its core application on top of MySQL Database Community Edition but needed a solution to overcome limitations in scaling its service delivery.

High availability together with improved performance and around-the-clock database monitoring were Noorisys’ main goals when searching for a cost-effective solution to support FasterChecks.

Ultimately, the company had to meet the requirements of the UK’s General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act, ensuring that customer data is safe, compliant, and stored inside the country.

With MySQL HeatWave, Noorisys now delivers secure and cost-effective data management and storage services to customers across the globe.

Why Noorisys Technologies chose Oracle

After a careful evaluation process that included AWS database services and MySQL HeatWave, Noorisys selected Oracle in order to benefit from significant cost savings, as well as the industry’s best database performance. MySQL HeatWave was also the company’s preferred solution because of its advanced set of database features, management tools, and 24/7 technical support.


The upgrade to MySQL HeatWave enabled Noorisys to benefit from always-on security inherent to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The migration from MySQL Database Community Edition to MySQL HeatWave took just a few minutes. The initial testing phase served up to 200,000 users per second and presented no issues when it went live.

The company capitalized on the high availability, high performance, and on-demand scalability of MySQL HeatWave to expand internationally. To support its future growth, Noorisys relied on Oracle as an integrated technology stack vendor.

With MySQL HeatWave, the company substantially increased its agility to serve customers. Moving its systems from AWS to OCI, Noorisys is now able to add or reduce compute instances without changing IP addresses, which previously involved downtimes of up to 48 hours—while any new server configuration is active within 5 minutes on OCI.

Noorisys gained the ability to offer more than just application development. With MySQL HeatWave, the company now delivers secure and cost-effective data management and storage services to customers.

The real-time monitoring of security threats coupled with 24/7 Oracle Premier Support helped Noorisys reallocate IT staff toward value-adding business tasks, such as web and application development.

Using Oracle Premier Support, Noorisys was able to fully grasp the load balancer configuration, the autoscalable feature of the server, and the pay-as-you-go pricing scheme.
