This U.S.-based financial software enterprise was experiencing rapid growth. Due to a number of mergers and acquisitions, the company comprised five distinct organizations – all operating and managing disparate systems.
Since it was becoming increasingly complex and costly to support aging infrastructure, and with time pressure to exit some data centers, the company decided to consolidate and standardize by moving to the cloud.
As an AWS Premier Partner with 700+ certifications and 14 competencies/ specializations, Cloudreach leveraged the AWS Optimized Licensing Assessment (OLA) program, which helps organizations thoroughly assess and optimize current on-premises and cloud environments.
Cloudreach demonstrated our end-to-end cloud capabilities with a net new application build and by completing a seamless lift and shift. We presented a business case to the company that proved out the significant ROI of moving to AWS cloud.
Through the AWS OLA program, Cloudreach used Cloudamize, our high precision analytics platform to determine a best-fit cloud configuration and prepare precise TCO calculations for two of RevSpring’s data centers. The following technologies were used in the cloud migration effort:
- Terraform, SQL Server, AWS RDS, AWS KMS, AWS Config, AWS security groups, AWS EBS and AWS S3 storage.
For one of the data centers, Cloudreach built out a net new application to be hosted in the AWS environment.
Cloudreach is also providing resale on AWS platform consumption.
Now that two of the enterprise’s data centers have been fully migrated to AWS, it is realizing the following benefits:
- More than 30% savings on professional services as a result of AWS funding and our premium AWS partnership.
- $1.5M savings in run rate over a three-year period.
- Improved cost visibility.
- Cohesive, flexible and scalable infrastructure on which to operate its business.
Cloudreach ran Cloudamize assessments on four additional data centers to determine additional scope and economies of scale savings for the company.
Results showed an additional $2 million in savings over a three-year period – the customer plans to move forward with this initiative in 2023.
