About the client
Large food processing company offering a vast collection of high-quality meat and seafoods through retail stores and online e-commerce at the most affordable prices.
Our clients’ application teams were considering standardization of their deployment platform and practices for applications across the IT. The eCommerce application managed by the client was one of the critical applications that ran APIs enabling the communication and integration between client’s online ordering portal with their SAP Core and delivery partners for fulfillment. This application was built and deployed completely on OSS stack on AWS by their incumbent application partner but did not follow the cloud recommendations, and best practices around security, networking, and architecture. Client decided to revisit their existing cloud platform for their eCommerce application and also evaluate a partner with the right competencies and experience to migrate out of Amazon web services (AWS).
Evaluation of the right cloud migration partner
The client was seeking a partner who had strong capabilities in data center (DC) migration & modernization, open-source competencies, and a good understanding of AWS platform and architecture. MSRcosmos was selected after a rigorous evaluation process owing to its Advanced Specialization in Linux and OSS DBs and a strongly complementing Advanced Specialization in Modernization of Web Applications on Azure, covering both OSS and Azure PaaS.
MSR warmed up to the challenge and demonstrated extreme agility by quickly bringing their Azure Cloud Architects with AWS skills to engage with the customer and their incumbent partner. MSR team conducted multiple sessions involving Microsoft, client, and incumbent partner for a detailed discovery and assessment of AWS networking, infrastructure, and PaaS services consumed by client’s eCommerce application.
MSR’s Azure expert team crafted a sound cloud migration approach and strategy to modernize the eCommerce application. MSR team successfully migrated from AWS to Azure IaaS and PaaS components with tight integration to SAP applications.
