Enterprise cloud data management
Redwood City, CA
Solving sales velocity and customer experience challenges for Informatica’s Master Data Management (MDM) solution.
Cloud migration, full-stack monitoring, 24x7 support
We worked with the nClouds team to migrate our data management solution to the cloud. What’s more important is the tremendous collaboration nClouds facilitated between our ops and engineering teams. They supported the migration to AWS, covered security, disaster recovery, and during roll-out, 24x7 support with 10-minute SLA.”
Senior Manager R&D, Informatica
For over 20 years, Informatica has supported business growth with capabilities such as data quality, master data management, cloud data integration, data security, and data archiving. Their Intelligent Data Platform is a powerful combination of metadata intelligence and artificial intelligence, fully integrated across all aspects of data management.
MDM, one of the solutions provided by Informatica, was originally an on-premises application that Informatica customers installed and maintained within their organization. Then, Informatica started offering a cloud-based, fully-hosted version of this product in response to increased demand. Before working with nClouds, it typically took two-plus months to onboard new customers. This created challenges for the company, including:
To address those issues, Informatica began exploring solutions that would enable them to provision multi-tenant applications on AWS within hours.
Informatica worked with nClouds, an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, to help re-architect its infrastructure. Based on Informatica’s requirements, nClouds developed a cloud migration strategy, using AWS services and tools such as Chef and HashiCorp’s Terraform and Packer as pillars.
nClouds designed a streamlined architecture to enable the management of multiple single-tenant environments in the same AWS account. This new architecture replaced the original single-tenant MDM solution Informatica hosted for their customers in the cloud.
nClouds also implemented AWS-based solutions to support use-cases such as on-premises network connectivity and data transfer with on-premises databases. By implementing the new hosted MDM solution, Informatica was able to provision new standardized environments within hours.
Working with nClouds helped Informatica create a new architecture to provision multi-tenant apps on AWS within hours. nClouds provides Informatica with full-stack monitoring across their entire environment, in addition to 24x7 support. A disaster recovery solution was also developed to enable fast recovery of critical data in the event of a breach.
Working with nClouds, Informatica moved from an single-tenant application to a highly-adaptable, scalable, and effective multi-tenant architecture in the cloud. The project has yielded numerous benefits:
In the past, it took Informatica one month to provision a new environment. Today, it takes about 6-8 hours.
During the initial roll-out, nClouds worked directly with end customers to solve infrastructure issues with a 10-minute SLA.
Informatica’s new disaster recovery solution provides faster recovery of critical IT systems and data without incurring the expense of a second physical backup site.
Informatica’s new architecture has allowed them to scale their new cloud solution using custom automation. The new architecture streamlines AWS resource accounting to enable Informatica to correct chargeback of resources and reduce waste.
