Aperian – Cloud Transformation

WALT Labs’s role in this project was to strategize, execute, and deliver a successful platform that fulfilled our clients’ needs.

The Challenge

Aperian Global reached out to us because they were interested in moving their single CMS (content management system) to GCP.They also wanted their single instance application to be scaled out into multiple instances, offering failover protection and high-availability.

The Solution

The application and all supporting infrastructure were migrated to GCP with multiple identical instances. To facilitate distributed traffic between the active instances, load balancing between each of the nodes was introduced. All locally stored data was migrated to Gluster, which included over 60gb of data. A plan was developed and executed to move all supporting data from MySQLto GCP CloudSQL.

The results

In conclusion, moving to GCP has enabled Aperian Global to utilize a variety of GCP options to expand the capability of theirCMS. They were able to utilize Load Balancing and multiple instances, to increase the stability and high availability of theirCMS. Their use of CloudSQL has allowed them to use a centralized database solution for reliability across all instances.
