Challenges

AUTO1 was undergoing an IT migration from Linode to AWS. The migration was a gradual one where data consistency and a working rollback plan had to be ensured at all times during the migration. AUTO1 sought out expertise to:

  • Perform a review of different VPC setups and inter-region and inter-account connectivity
  • Review the required migration steps for its main MySQL databases, to ensure minimal downtime for the business
