Dazadi.com, an Internet Retailer Second 500 Fastest Growing Company as well as an Inc. Magazine 500/5000 Fastest Growing Company has made significant upgrades to its IT infrastructure, including its first project in the cloud.
“We have kept a very close eye on the improvements made to the cloud infrastructure over the last several years,” says Josh Klaristenfeld, Co-Founder and EVP of Operations. “When it came time to update our Warehouse Management System, we decided this was a great opportunity to try out a cloud-based solution. We learned early on that it wasn’t just a 1 to 1 transition from physical servers to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). However, even though there was a bit of a learning curve, we were ultimately able to build more flexible, more reliable architecture for our WMS that should provide 99.999% uptime. The cost, scalability and app optimization benefits are definitely the biggest plus, and we look forward to migrating more of our platform to the cloud in the coming year!"
