Swisslos is a lottery company operating in German-speaking Switzerland, and offers lotteries, sports bets, and instant tickets. Despite being in a gambling business, Swisslos structures its range of games in a socially responsible manner and transfers its entire net profit to the mandating cantons and the Principality of Liechtenstein to support public causes. As the business began to grow with over 600 million Francs in prize money paid out to lottery winners every year, its network needed some modernizing.
Swisslos faced a series of challenges when their IT team was tasked with architecting a modern data center. The main lottery application was supported by appliance-based load balancers and secured by WAF appliances from the same vendor. It became more difficult to deliver a good experience to customers with the lack of elasticity and poor performance. Additionally, application performance was being hindered by the inability to scale and configuring physical appliances became more difficult.
