Case Study: Migrate to Cloud Managed Database


Delivered savings of $100k by migrating from self-managed DB to Cloud managed DB.

Problem Statement:

Significant maintenance of DB machines (backup, security, DR, vulnerabilities, patching); requires multiple DBAs.


  • Backup/restore was not standardized in self-management in DBS.
  • Product-wise migration to AWS DB.
  • Data at rest is not secure/encrypted.
  • Regular effort is spent on patching and vulnerability management.
  • Very high cost of maintaining DR.


  • Defined a 3-month program.
  • Product-wise migration to AWS DB.
  • Standardized Backup/Encryption.
  • Standardized organization-wide Data security policy.
  • Implemented low-cost geography replication for DBs.
