IT Challenges

We live in digital epoch, when IT is not merely an automation of work processes, but the key component of business development. Faberlic, the company of an intensive growth, where revenue gains 30% annually, faced the necessity to implement new IT solutions as fast as possible – with no compromises in quality. As product development, building the right sales model and company growth all influence the IT model transformation – there was the need for a tool to automate processes, to facilitate sales growth, to make business better and overall more stable.

From the classical infrastructure to hybrid

As many business entities, Faberlic was starting on its own equipment, but in more than 20 years of market presence such approach was calling for changes. Initially the company was using small servers located right in the office. But non-stop growth of physical capacities nurtured for a migration to a Data Center. The part of gear did migrate, but with the flow of time it became insufficient. The rest of the gear did migrate to a Data Center as well, but this step wasn’t final. For the large and fast developing company with the wide selection of business services one location was not enough; there was the need to use the second one.

Faberlic “cloudless” infrastructure

Faberlic case observes a classical way of infrastructure usage: at first on-premises, but this approach was calling for investments into the equipment.

Selection of a provider and migration to a cloud

Before starting using the cloud platform the company operated according to the previously designed plan: studying the market, comparing sets of services available from different providers, etc. Thus the selection criteria emerged: cost of resources, technological platforms under clouds, use of Enterprise-level solutions by a provider were the primary ones. Options to create non-typical configurations were also considered, as some historically inherited business schemes of the company had their own peculiarities and needed a specific approach to administer. Resources of a provider firmly allocated to a client, with an estimated performance level were another consideration. Demands for a provider’s support desk included highly skilled personnel and A.S.A.P. fault processing.

Advantages the company received

Cloud usage project completion brought positive results. As the company notes, resources’ allocation time shrunk from days and weeks to hours and minutes. Also cloud capacities allow deploying more stands for development and testing, which increases IT products’ time-to-market speed and improves their quality. Piloting in the cloud allows configuring productive environments more precisely as well – before investing into the infrastructure. Having tried IaaS cloud model, the company has no intentions to stop. Faberlic plans further development, increasing its cloud presence.
