One of Indonesia’s largest media groups licensed BBM’s app technology and needed to move the infrastructure from an on-premises data center in Canada to Asia. Pythian helped to migrate their Oracle database to a mix of open-source databases, including MongoDB, Cassandra, and MySQL, and replaced the original storage system with elastic, cost-effective Google Cloud Storage.
One of Indonesia’s largest media groups licensed BBM’s app technology and needed to move the infrastructure from an on-premises data center in Waterloo, Canada to Asia. This move would help them better serve their largest user base. With media consumption growing at lightning speed, BBM recognized that migrating to the cloud would bring the elasticity, scale, and cost effectiveness they needed as well as the geographic proximity to their largest user base. The move would also ensure high availability by taking advantage of redundancy over two cloud zones in Southeast Asia to help protect against unexpected failures. Google Cloud was chosen as the cloud provider for its future-proof architecture to support the product as it evolves.
Facing time constraints and lacking adequate cloud expertise, BBM turned to Pythian to help with the migration. As a Google Cloud Premier Partner with significant experience managing big data deployments and performing Google Cloud migrations, along with the ability to scale to meet the required timelines, Pythian offered assurance that they could migrate the complex IT infrastructure to the cloud on time and with minimal risk.
