Pythian helps software-as-a-service company process billions of data points a day, with high availability, disaster recovery, and horizontal scaling.
Google Cloud PlatformIndustries
This company provides a software-as-a-service platform that connects commercial vehicles to the cloud. Processing billions of data points a day, the company leverages data analytics and machine learning to help customers optimize fleets through the reduction of fuel consumption, enhance driver safety, and ensure compliance with regulatory changes. As a rapidly growing business, the company required a data system that could scale to keep pace with business growth.
The company was using a mission-critical system which used Microsoft SQL Server as its backend database technology. However, the IT team determined that they needed a simpler way to scale their data system so it would grow linearly with their data volume.
After Pythian provided the company with a technical assessment and migration plan, Pythian seamlessly deployed Google Cloud Spanner—achieving the company’s quick timeline of eight weeks.
- By migrating to Spanner, the company now has access to a fully managed cloud solution with built-in high availability, disaster recovery, and horizontal auto scaling.
- The migration has eased management for the company’s IT team.
- Decreased dependency on SQL Server means faster development times, allowing the company to focus on customer experience.
