Is it possible to move a complete infrastructure to Microsoft Azure while reducing the execution time by ⅓? Clearly defined needs and knowledge of the Cloud and Azure area are enough to make this happen. What challenge did the SlickCloud team face and what steps did we take to make this project a reality? Read on and discover where our efficiency has exceeded expectations.

The need – migrating infrastructure from Google Cloud to Microsoft Azure

SlickCloud was approached by a client who needed help migrating the infrastructure of one of its leading gaming business partners. The goal was to migrate applications, database, network and additional resources from Google Cloud to Microsoft Azure. Our client needed the help of experts in this field, as they were not well acquainted with the two cloud platforms. The project was not marked as urgent, but its timely and efficient execution was crucial.

The challenge – mapping services from Google to Microsoft Azure

The biggest challenge turned out to be mapping specific Google Cloud services to their Microsoft Azure equivalents, which was key to ensuring that applications continue to run without any downtime. Not all services had direct equivalents, which required our experts to have the technical expertise to design a new architecture that met the client’s needs.

Solution in 3 steps

To address the challenge of migrating infrastructure from Google Cloud to Microsoft Azure, our team used a proven approach, breaking down the process into three key steps:

  1. Architecture analysis – the first step was to thoroughly understand the client’s existing infrastructure in Google Cloud.
  2. Migration planning – then we developed a detailed migration plan that included mapping Google Cloud services to their Azure equivalents. This way we were confident that the migration would go smoothly and without any downtime.
  3. Execution of the migration process – the final stage was the migration process itself carried out by our engineers and without any impact on the continuous operation of the application.

 

Results – migration successfully completed

The deliverable of our work was a successfully completed infrastructure migration to Microsoft Azure, which we accomplished without any downtime or disruptions in the operation of the application. One of the most notable achievements of our project was that it was completed one month earlier than originally planned. This demonstrated our efficiency and experience in implementing such projects.

Summary

Moving applications from Google Cloud to Microsoft Azure proved to be quite a challenge, which we accomplished without any glitches. With the knowledge and experience of our experts, we exceeded our client’s expectations, migrating the infrastructure to Microsoft Azure without downtime or interruption of the continuous operation of the application.
