Siatik assisted Mycomax with planning and migrating their production workloads from a colocated hosted environment to Google Cloud Platform, as well as ensuring that target infrastructure, security, and networking best practices were adhered to.
The Mycomax production environment was hosted on inflexible
colocated infrastructure provided by a 3rd party, and running on a
mixture of aging infrastructure experiencing capacity issues that were
negatively impacting application performance. The provider was also
unprepared to allow the migration teams access to the underlying
infrastructure, limiting the teams’ migration options.
The multidisciplinary migration approach allowed teams to create
copies of the environment and test to ensure that the solution would
meet requirements. The scalability and flexibility of the GCP
environment allowed the team to appropriately benchmark the
environment prior to migration, and once the application was
commissioned, were able to rightsize workloads to ensure the best
The Google Cloud Platform gave the Mycomax team the flexibility to
rapidly change the configuration of hosted GCP infrastructure to find
the perfect balance between resource allocation and user experience.
The application also allowed the team the flexibility to quickly modify
the environment to meet changing requirements, something that was
time-consuming and complicated in the past.
GCP enables us to serve our African clients with class-leading technology and we have seen massive improvements in client experience as a result.
Leveraging cloud resources means we now have a real-time view of production performance and can easily scale as required. Choosing the right platform and partner was key to our success in modernizing the way we had been operating for over a decade.
