Ascential Group Case Study
Planning and implementation of storage migration to AWS delivers outstanding business efficiencies for Ascential Group.
transACT have been advising Ascential on the Cloud Journey for a few years in coordination with the business stakeholders who have a cloud first motto and having completed many projects alongside Ascential to migrate workloads into AWS this was a natural step to have all data located in one location due to the nature of the big data business model.
transACT designed and implemented a full data migration plan, including monthly calculator breakdown to implement AWS storage services to migrate data to S3 in a multi-part upload of over 500tb of block and File storage. In the interim, in conjunction with Ascential, transACT implemented the storage gateway to ensure all data would be satisfactorily migrated to AWS.
For the bulk of the storage migration transACT used their internal streamline process which restored the data and migrated utilising AWS Snowball, AWS CLI for priority data using staging instances at their ISO 27001 location.
Amazon S3 Glacier
This solution was proposed to be implemented for back-ups and restores of workloads already within AWS. This lifecycle management saw savings up to 18% on their storage monthly storage costs.
