Ted Baker Case Study
Ted Baker consulted with long-term IT partner transACT to define migrating storage to cloud for the global business.
Quick, seamless and the solution that makes a great deal of commercial sense.
transACT is Ted Bakers Cloud Trusted Advisor and are engaged at management level throughout the business. After discussions with the IT stakeholders, the full scope of the project included the migration of business-critical data across storage tapes and on-premise SAN’s as well as the implementation of a governance and security framework.
transACT engineers were able to identify a shortlist of solutions and guide us through the selection process to provide an end to end service for our file and image data. Within a few days, Ted had access to the additional storage capacity required by initially using the storage gateway to connect to their existing on-prem back-up vendor. This addressed interim back-ups until all data was fully migrated to AWS S3 tiers in Amazon Web Services, and was able to use Amazon’s Snowball appliances to shift large quantities of file data without impacting Ted’s network performance.
Data was encrypted during transit and at rest, once available within S3, Ted Baker had a full view of data quantities, charges associated to the different storage classes via transACT Cloud Management Portal to help optimise their solution.
High data availability
Security & governance
Amazon S3 Glacier
The implemented solution allowed the photography and graphic design teams to upload their required content to a centralised location without having the burden of substantial data management challenges, and teams around the world experience high-performance access.
This solution provided improvement of areas within Ted Baker such as capacity provisioning, capacity planning, performance and cost.
Increased capacity that scaled with demand improved performance along with a reduction of expenditure of physical hardware helped reduce IT Costs and overheads, continuous scale challenges and back-up headaches. Legacy on-prem file servers have been decommissioned, reducing IT costs and overheads, continuous scale challenges and back-up headaches.
