Improved customer's legal preparedness by providing accurate information by migrating to AWS Cloud

Up-to-date and accurate information is the currency of legal discourse.

Business needProvide seamless & frictionless customer experience

The customers use the client's services to gain data-driven insights and relevant legal citations and precedents to build a comprehensive story of each case. Any disruption in these services can upset customer preparedness and can undermine their case's strategic advantage.

The client wished to preempt the possibility of service downtime and inferior customer experience. It used Trigent's expertise to migrate its workloads and environment from datacenter to the public cloud.

Some of the challenges the client was facing were:

  • Few application servers, when they crashed, took up to 4 hours to restore
  • The applications could be made operational only through a manual process. Automated deployment needed to be enabled
  • The peak time load on servers led to poor performance resulting in customer dissatisfaction
  • Maintaining its own SMTP server was becoming increasingly difficult
  • Server upgrades were painful and time-consuming

Further, they wished to reduce operational costs and total cost of ownership.

Trigent solutionOn-time, on-budget seamless migration of applications to AWS with zero business disruption

The client's business-critical applications were hosted in a data center, which slowed their ability to achieve rapid business growth and expansion. Downtime occurrences, coupled with a lack of on-demand scaling, resulted in broken customer experience.

For a reliable migration to the cloud - without any disruptions, Trigent adopted the following migration path:

Trigent cloud experts carried out a thorough assessment of the client's infrastructure, studied the environment, and prepared a detailed inventory list by considering the following factors:

  • Existing hardware, including servers, load balancers, hard disks, etc.
  • Operating systems and security levels
  • Applications and their performance
  • Storage utilization and configuration
  • Backups and disaster recovery settings
  • Secure access to servers using VPN setup

The migration mainly followed the 'Lift and Shift' with select instances of the 'Lift and Reshape' approach.
