    Key Technologies: Oracle Cloud, IaaS and ClouDesk
    The Challenge
    • GWT plans to expand their business operations across geographies. They were not able to keep pace with the changing technology and demanding business needs
    • GWT was facing huge challenges in maintaining business continuity as their EDI/Business applications were operating from an unstable on-premise environment with a huge performance issues
    • Massive power outages impacting their business
    • GWT in-house IT staff has limited skills, and SOP was not defined clearly
    • Hosted on Hyper-V, migration to Oracle cloud was not a feasible option
    The Solution
    • Suneratech Cloud Solution team analyzed the current IT infrastructure of GWT in order to support the business growth across geographies
    • Suneratech has built a holistic solution with ‘lift and shift’ migration approach from on-premise servers to Oracle Public Cloud
    • Suneratech Infra COE team defined the SOP and provided KT to GWT team
    • Converted Hyper-V VHDx machines to Oracle Public Cloud images
    • Uploaded to OSS and imported them as cloud image
    • Remapping Microsoft Licenses to cloud environment
    • Restoring trading partner connections with cloud instances
    The Result
    • Successfully completed migration to cloud without disruption and ensured Business Continuity
    • Greenworkstools saved 60% on infrastructure cost and brought in stability with improved performance
    • Zero downtime while migrating to Oracle Cloud
    • Reduced overhead of maintaining on-premise infrastructure
    • Introduced FLEXIBILITY by having an additional server and storage capacity available in hours rather than months for faster business project implementations
    • Removed RESIDUAL COSTS, as IT infrastructure can be decreased as required
    • The cost is consequently eliminated when the IT is no longer needed
    “Suneratech helped us in choosing the right cloud vendor (Oracle IaaS) by providing an assessment, comparative analysis and ROI details. Suneratech and Oracle helped us save 60% on infrastructure cost and brought in stability with improved performance by migrating into Oracle Cloud infrastructure. We leveraged Suneratech’s ClouDesk platform.”
