NAV Canada needed to move critical data to the cloud to lower costs, while ensuring high performance. Pythian’s services ensured a seamless migration from Oracle database to Microsoft Azure SQL database.
NAV Canada is a private, non-share capital corporation that owns and operates Canada’s civil air navigation service (ANS). The organization provides in-depth interpretive weather briefings and en route advisories to pilots operating anywhere in its airspace. They are also responsible for providing timely reports on missing or overdue flights.
NAV Canada supports flight planning with aviation weather, aeronautical information, and online flight planning. Their collaborative planning system enables pilots to file, amend, delay, or cancel flight plans. The flight planning system supports complex flight information including visual flight rules (VFR) flight plans, user updates to VFRs, instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plans, updates to IFR flight plans, along with information from the Aviation Weather Web Site.
The organization engaged Pythian to migrate their Oracle database to Microsoft Azure SQL database to get a more cost-efficient environment for their critical flight planning data, while optimizing performance.
Pythian’s breadth of expertise spans both traditional on-premise and cloud environments, making Pythian the perfect partner as we migrated critical workloads to the cloud.
