Minfy Migrates Traditional Applications to the Cloud for SREI Infrastructure Finance Limited

Minfy conducted a phase-wise approach to Cloud Migration for SREI Infrastructure Finance Limited, optimizing costs and reducing overall downtime.

The Background and the Situation

The client is one of India's leading asset finance & leasing institutions, constantly and consistently delivering innovative solutions in the infrastructure sector. However, it has been struggling with several challenges before they finally decided to migrate their digital infrastructure to the cloud.

A large capital investment coupled with high operational costs in DC maintenance were proving to be a big hurdle in the procurement and scaling up of the infrastructure. To add to the woes, were frequent outages resulting in theloss of business as well as dilution of the brand value.

One big concern of client was limitations in skilled technical resources to manage their cloud ops which made them consider a partner who can provide complete managed services.

Minfy’s Ingenious Solution

Minfy studied the situation and dissected the problem to then design and implement the solution. From the variety of issues identified, Minfy engineers prioritized them to create a process to ensure no step or issue is left unaddressed:

Assessment: This was the most important phase of the process and this process was driven by a specialized team that included Network, OS, Middleware, DB specialties

A phased approach to migration, starting with the non-critical workloads was initiated, to address the skepticism of some of the members of the workforce

Considering ‘outage’ as one of the most precarious challenges faced by the client, monolithic, complex, and mission-critical applications were migrated using specialized tools, ensuring zero data loss and minimal downtime.

Minfy’s IP was leveraged to provide a cost-optimized solution for File System Integration
