Unitas Global (Solinea) architected a hybrid cloud solution (integrating both private and AWS public cloud), and at the same time, transformed their development and automation processes to take advantage of the new platform.
A leading satellite broadcaster was faced with a highly seasonal workload and a static infrastructure. At the same time, they anticipated a surge in end users based on planned product changes. Their infrastructure was not suited to support the anticipated demand. Cost projections as well as timelines made “doing the same thing” not a viable option. However, manual processes coupled with organizational silos meant that doing something new entailed not just technical challenges but also process challenges as well. The customer needed a new way of developing and operating its infrastructure.
To meet the anticipated spike in demand, the customer decided on a hybrid solution that spanned both public and private cloud platforms. Unitas Global architected a solution that was optimized to leverage both an on-premise private cloud along with the ability to scale to a public cloud provider as needed. A review of their application portfolio allowed Unitas to highlight the application stacks that would add the most value in the near term. In addition, Unitas worked with internal teams to develop streamlined, agile operational processes.
