Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) is the common name of the companies Ferrocarril Metropolità de Barcelona, SA, and Transports de Barcelona, SA, which manage the Metro and Bus network on behalf of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona.
It also includes the companies Projectes i Serveis de Mobilitat, SA, which manages the Montjuc cable car; Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona, SL, which manages tariff products through the Barcelona Smart Moving e-commerce platform and other transport services, as well as the TMB Foundation, which looks after TMB’s historical heritage and promotes values of public transport through social and cultural activities.
TMB finds the need to expand its infrastructure on AWS to host new portals, for which a large number of visits are expected. They need a platform with high availability, which adapts to the number of visits that can be available at any given time.
A container-based platform (Docker) is created for the applications.
In this way the applications are portable, lightweight and self-sufficient.
The Auto Scaling procedure is used to allow you to scale the capacity of the architecture components to address the volume of user requests.
Improvements and optimizations are applied to the use of computing in order to reduce costs.
