Enhanced security and compliance
BKJ Digital needed a sophisticated compute platform for their fast-growth business that provided the performance efficiency of a flexible, reliable infrastructure, and met the security and compliance requirements of their end-customers. They wanted to migrate their production applications from a legacy infrastructure provider to a modern, flexible, Kubernetes-based stack.
“The BKJ Digital team needed to migrate a fleet of production applications from a legacy infrastructure provider to a modern, flexible, Kubernetes-based stack. The nClouds team’s deep experience with Kubernetes on Amazon EKS helped us plan and execute our migration to AWS in record time.”
BKJ Digital engaged with nClouds to help them migrate their application stack from SoftLayer (IBM Cloud) to AWS.
nClouds began by performing a Migration Readiness Assessment (MRA). BKJ Digital’s pre-migration infrastructure on SoftLayer had a self-managed MySQL database, Apache Solr servers, network-attached storage (NAS), applications on VMs, containerized applications on Docker Swarm, load balancers, a utility server, and no managed services. The workload on SoftLayer had five web applications and four backend CMS Applications (on the Drupal content management platform). The web applications were jointly running on three servers. All web applications had a Varnish Cache in front of them. The backend applications were running on Docker Swarm. Most applications were containerized.
