Business Challenges

BMKG was looking to improve its earthquake alert information system reliability and also maintain stable performance. Previously, the alert delivery to the public was often delayed and the web application was inaccessible when the disaster happened at rural area. BMKG had issues to cope with the fluctuating trends and was exploring options to transform its information system cost to an OPEX model.

The Solution

InfoFabrica designed and managed the solution for BMKG by using Google Cloud’s cost-efficient App Engine for serving web application to the public, durable Google Cloud Storage for synchronizing contents from on-premise earthquake alert, Cloud CDN for fast content delivery to public, and Stackdriver for monitoring & logging of the BMKG environment on Google Cloud, integrated to InfoFabrica NOC.

Direct Results

The earthquake alerting system has been experiencing stable performance with 100% uptime SLA. During disaster events, the alerts can now be processed delivered 10x faster, due to the elastic architecture. BMKG stakeholders are satisfied with the maintained SLA and regular reporting done by InfoFabrica.

BMKG transformed its Earthquake alerting system by achieving an efficient, scalable, and reliable application and content delivery system with Google Cloud and InfoFabrica. BMKG now have a cost efficient solution and can ultimately deliver success to their missions: providing accurate and reliable information in field of meteorology, climatology, and geophysics in Indonesia.
