The Problem Statement

The client wanted to migrate their entire on-premise infrastructure to the cloud. Their systems and applications urgently needed a modern upgrade to improve scalability, reliability, and security. Additionally, they wanted to ensure that this migration was done with minimal disruption to their business operations, and they were counting on us to make it happen. It was a massive undertaking, but we were determined to help them achieve their goals and provide them with the seamless cloud-based infrastructure they needed to succeed.

The Challenge

The challenge was to seamlessly migrate the client’s infrastructure while minimizing disruptions to their business operations.

  • The client’s legacy infrastructure was complex, which made it challenging to identify the specific components that needed to be migrated to the cloud.
  • During the migration process, the client faced disruptions due to the complex dependencies between different components of their legacy system.
  • An obstacle to adopting new tools and processes associated with the cloud infrastructure slowed down the migration process.
  • The client had to ensure that their new cloud infrastructure complied with industry regulations and security standards, which required additional effort and expertise.
  • The client needed to optimize their cloud infrastructure to ensure that the cost savings promised by the migration were realized. This required monitoring usage and making adjustments to the infrastructure as needed.

The Solution

Netsmartz conducted a thorough assessment of our client’s existing infrastructure and applications to recommend the most suitable cloud platform for their business needs. After careful consideration, we recommended Azure as the best option.

  • To ensure a seamless transition to the cloud, we used Azure Resource Manager and Terraform to create infrastructure as code, automating the process of provisioning and configuring resources in the Azure cloud.
  • We utilized Azure DevOps and Git for continuous integration and delivery, automating the entire software delivery process and reducing the time it took to deploy changes while implementing security measures like two-factor authentication and encryption for the cardholder data.
  • To migrate the applications and data to the cloud, we implemented a lift and shift migration strategy while using automated testing and monitoring tools to detect and fix any issues that arose during migration.
  • Finally, we used Azure Monitor and Log Analytics for monitoring and logging, allowing the company to identify and fix issues quickly, ensuring compliance with PCI regulations, keeping track of access to cardholder data, and performing regular audits.

Our Process

To build a cohesive engagement replete with updates, QA, and feedback loops, Netsmartz followed the following process.

Talent Identification

We started with assessing the client’s requirements and understanding their tech stack and engineering requirements. After a thorough assessment and multiple feedback & interviews, we sorted the candidates for the client’s dedicated team.

Team Allocation

The dedicated team from Netsmartz worked closely with the client to understand their business needs, their existing infrastructure, and the specific requirements for migrating to the cloud. They used industry-standard tools and technologies to create infrastructure as code and automate the provisioning and configuration of resources in the cloud.

The solution provided by Netsmartz resulted in significant improvements for our client. Their new cloud infrastructure was highly scalable, flexible, and designed with security and compliance in mind, providing enhanced agility, reliability, uptime, and data protection.
