Automation can significantly reduce the time and resources it takes to migrate digital assets and inventory to the cloud. But disparate architectures, configurations, versions and other factors complicate the process—and that can be a huge problem when there is a tight migration deadline to meet. That’s the situation, VerticalScope, a Canadian digital media and entertainment firm found itself in. VerticalScope operates a large number of high-traffic websites and wanted to standardize their underlying infrastructure by moving them all to Google Cloud Platform (GCP). VerticalScope used Pythian to augment and accelerate their migration, and sprint the last 30 days of migrating website assets to GCP. With the clock ticking, Google referred to Pythian, one of its top partners, as the company that could be airlifted in and get the job done on time.
"We definitely didn’t have the luxury of time, so we knew we needed a partner with the right skills and expertise to have any hope of meeting our deadline. We found that in Pythian. We couldn’t have done it without their extensive cloud and infrastructure migration experience, effective processes and great communication.”
