Oway quickly realized that these cloud costs would be better reallocated to other areas of the business, helping to fund development for the needs of the moment. But with the previous infrastructure, there was no way to adapt to changing resource needs. Oway and Virtusa worked closely to execute a smooth migration to minimize downtime for customers. In the weeks following the POC, the migration team deployed Oway Ride in a staging environment, before moving it to a live production during a two-hour maintenance window.
Virtusa worked alongside Oway's cloud engineers to share hands-on Google Cloud experience so it could carry out the migration smoothly and optimize the app's infrastructure after the migration.
“We simplified the migration process by using Migrate for Compute Engine, a Google Cloud migration tool, to move Oway Ride to Compute Engine,” says Naresha Supramaniam, SVP, Head of APAC, Virtusa. “Using a lift-and-shift approach, Oway migrated the application to Google Cloud quickly and painlessly, through carefully planned phases, without having to rebuild the infrastructure.”
