Varuna Migrates from Amazon Web Services to Google Cloud







Google Cloud experts at Cloudbakers and Qwinix helped Varuna cut wasted cloud spend, reinforce cloud security practices, and build a foundation for advanced IoT and machine learning capabilities with an AWS to Google Cloud migration. This allowed them to focus on what they do best: helping their customers gain visibility across their distribution network.

The challenge

Varuna was running on multiple servers and wanted to avoid over-provisioning. To do this, they needed to move to a serverless architecture, which would allow them to reduce wasted cloud spend and expand their product’s machine learning capabilities.
Critical assets included Varuna IoT’s front-end website, client portal application (Python app with Django), and AWS relational database.

The approach

  • Database Migration: AWS RDS Postgres database instance to a Cloud SQL Postgres instance
  • Front-end Website Migration: S3 hosting of static HTML and JavaScript files to Google Cloud Storage buckets and representative Cloud CDN service instances
  • Application Migration: Python (with Django) app from AWS Elastic Beanstalk to Google App Engine
  • Secure Google Cloud Landing Zone Setup: Assessed, designed, and implemented cloud security best practices

The results

  • Migrated infrastructure from AWS to Google Cloud
  • Reduced monthly cloud spend
  • Expanded machine learning capabilities
  • Reinforced cloud security best practices
