Migration to the public cloud

JITpay, a logistics fintech company based in Germany, is entering a phase of intense scaling up across Europe. To facilitate business growth, the decision is made to migrate their mission-critical production system to the public cloud.

The main drivers for moving to the cloud are scalability, enhanced business continuity and the ability to leverage additional business opportunities. Due to the nature of JITpay’s business model, financial regulatory requirements also need to be considered. 

JITpay is looking for a partner to guide them in selecting a public cloud provider and to perform the migration of the entire system, keeping in mind their specific requirements and a need for team enablement within a short time frame.

Validation and analysis

JITpay's on-premise solution consists of a Kubernetes cluster with supporting services around it, SQL and no-SQL databases, a message broker service and file storage.

The Zühlke team conducts due diligence on the system to be migrated and analyses business and technical requirements. Based on the needs and business goals, Zühlke designs the target AWS solution architecture and implements pragmatic replatforming of some core services with the managed cloud offerings. This cloud infrastructure is implemented using Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) to improve consistency and security and lower the risk of human error. The knowledge transfer to the JITpay team is successfully conducted.

Scalability, resilience, and security

Through a one-team approach, the migration is completed within two months. The approach and architecture design reduces the maintenance and management overhead of services and helps JITpay to focus on bringing innovation and value to their customers. JITpay is able to gain the benefits of the new operating model without any impact on daily operations and customer experience.

With an expectation to double the business volume within 12 months, the new cloud setup enables scalability, high availability, resilience and security of the public cloud infrastructure using managed cloud service offerings. Cloud cost optimisation is being achieved due to the elasticity offered by the AWS cloud.

At the end of the project, the JITpay team is able to run the system in the public cloud independently.
