WALT Labs’ role in this project was to help our client move their single content management system to GCP
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 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 MySQL to GCP CloudSQL.
In conclusion, moving to GCP has enabled Aperian Global to utilize a variety of GCP options to expand the capability of their CMS. They were able to utilize Load Balancing and multiple instances, to increase the stability and high availability of their CMS. Their use of CloudSQL has allowed them to use a centralized database solution for reliability across all instances.
