Support run-operations for the migrated workloads in AWS
About the customer
The client is one of the largest international warehousing and logistics companies, with more than 200 facilities in North America, Europe, and Asia.
The client’s existing infrastructure deployment had major platform instability, which resulted in critical business outages. The client needed a robust platform to failover within the data centers and across regions. The company also needed to address compatibility issues on their existing platform with an in-house application stack.
Application outages leading to potential revenue loss and compatibility issues, as well as poor cost management
Scalability issues due to growing data requirements, with slow deployments
Lack of standard framework during the mergers and acquisitions, with inefficient business continuity and disaster recovery plans
Migrate the current/on-prem workloads to reduce the client’s existing platform instability, and leverage AWS features. The entire migration spanned across 8 months. Brillio leveraged the existing patching schedule to migrate all 10 regions consisting of around 60 facilities with planned migrations.
The migration consistend:
Application servers built in AWS data centres
Migration of workloads from the existing platform to AWS
Implementing solution for failover within the data centres and across regions
The migration fixed all challenges the client faced, with full compatibility between the in-house application stack and AWS. By leveraging the AWS control tower service for managing multiple accounts, the client also increased security and governance.
Minimized outages and mitigated potential revenue loss through disruptions
Provided a scalable solution to introduce new facilities/regions
Leveraged the use of cost explorer for getting cost and usage reports for different facility workloads
