Cloud Migration for Large Construction Company

Our client is one of the largest general contractors in the United States, with more than $1bln in annual revenue.  The goal was to shift applications and data from 75 servers running in the data center to the cloud. With limited staff, the company’s IT department wanted to spend more time on business operations and less time operating a data center and hardware facilities.

Migration Objective:

  1. Eliminate the company’s massive in-house data centers that were too difficult to provision and maintain
  2. Increase security, reliability, and cost transparency of the web-based applications.
  3. Minimize the time required for maintenance and capacity increases
  4. Improve ability to handle traffic surges
  5. Improve performance and engineering efficiency

Strategy

  1. Phase I

    Initial migration used a hybrid environment (private data center and Google Cloud Platform), providing redundancy, reducing risk, and allowing the customer to perform A/B testing.

  2. Phase II

    As final architecture, Proxet proposed an active-active architecture across multiple cloud providers — Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Amazon Web Services (AWS). The main reason for such architecture was a requirement to improve the resiliency of their production systems, to be better positioned to survive a regional or global failure.

Results

  • 27 Applications migrated to AWS, including six Oracle-based financial applications
