MORE helped the customer migrate AWS workloads running on virtual instances to Kubernetes clusters running in Google Kubernetes Engine on Google Cloud Platform. Migration and Modernization were accomplished in this project. We also automated infrastructure deployment. At the end of this exercise, Fornova benefited from a 30% savings in their cloud spend.
The customer was facing a high cost of running their applications on virtual instances. Since the application was a legacy application, there was a very limited scope for optimization. The challenge was to modernize the application and at the same time bring about cost savings.
For Fornova, the solution involved refactoring and rehosting on Google Kubernetes Engine. The use of preemptible VMs in Google Kubernetes Engine clusters helped bring in cost savings. We helped redesign the application for GKE for maximum efficiency. We made sure all the best practices related to security were applied from the start. With inputs from Google Cloud, we implemented a CI/CD pipeline on Jenkins and used Terraform to automate infrastructure deployment.
Google Cloud Features Used:
|Kubernetes Engine||Compute Engine||Preemptible VMs|
- 30% cost savings in cloud spend
- Application modernization with Google Kubernetes Engine.
- Fully automated deployments with jenkins running in Google Kubernetes Engine, improving deployment efficiency by a 100%.
“The transition to Google was a strategic initiative for the company to lower infrastructure costs and advance to cutting edge cloud orchestration technologies. We felt that during the transition period we had a solid partner who helped us overcome all the technical and other challenges along the way.”
