Publisher: Channel Asia

In response to the challenging impact of the pandemic on travel - and the need to immediately reduce expenses – Oway, a ride-hailing startup, partnered with Virtusa to leverage Google Cloud's Migrate for Compute Engine, migrating its entire infrastructure to Google Cloud Platform in the process.

Starting in early April, the migration was completed in less than six weeks with the business now realizing a 20% reduction in total infrastructure costs.

"We realized very early on that the pandemic would severely impact the travel industry," said Tun Tun Linn, CTO, Oway. "With the help of Virtusa and Google Cloud we were able to reduce core operational expenses immediately and without any additional disruption to our business."
