Datacenter to AWS Cloud migration: a gaming industry case


We delivered successful Application Modernization and Migration for a customer in Gaming industry that includes migrating of their legacy application from datacenter/on-premises to AWS with minimal disruption and zero data loss. We help them modernize their application architecture by implementing microservices architecture with containers and Kubernetes, observability stack for application insights and continuous support with our Managed Cloud Services.

The online gaming industry is a digital labyrinth of risk and reward, where fortunes are made and lost with just a click.

Its allure lies in the virtual realm where chance meets choice, weaving a tapestry of excitement and uncertainty.


  1. Legacy applications: The project involved migrating the customer’s applications from their existing datacenter or on-premises infrastructure to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform.
  2. Minimal downtime: The migration had to be executed seamlessly, ensuring minimal disruption to ongoing operations and zero data loss during the transition.


  1. Application modernization: As part of the migration process, the customer’s application architecture underwent modernization to leverage cloud-native technologies and best practices. The legacy monolithic architecture was transformed into a more agile and scalable microservices architecture, facilitating easier management, deployment, and scaling of individual application components.
  2. Microservices architecture implementation: The transition to a microservices architecture involved breaking down the monolithic application into smaller, decoupled services. These services were designed to be independently deployable and scalable, enhancing agility and enabling faster development cycles.
  3. Containerization with Kubernetes: Containerization played a pivotal role in modernizing the application stack, enabling greater portability, consistency, and resource efficiency. Kubernetes, a container orchestration platform, was employed to manage and automate the deployment, scaling, and operation of containerized applications, further optimizing resource utilization and enhancing resilience.
  4. Observability stack implementation: An observability stack was implemented to provide comprehensive insights into the performance, health, and behavior of the migrated applications. This stack likely included tools for monitoring, logging, and tracing, enabling proactive identification and resolution of issues, as well as optimization of application performance.
  5. Continuous support with Managed Cloud Services: Following the migration and modernization efforts, ongoing support and management of the cloud infrastructure were provided through Managed Cloud Services. This included round-the-clock monitoring, maintenance, security, and optimization of the AWS environment, ensuring the continued reliability, scalability, and security of the customer’s applications.


  1. Business impact: The successful migration and modernization initiatives had a significant positive impact on the customer’s business.
  2. Technological impact: t improved the agility, scalability, and reliability of their applications, enabling them to respond more effectively to changing market demands and customer needs.
  3. Financial impact: Additionally, the cost-efficiency and flexibility of cloud-native architectures helped optimize infrastructure spending while facilitating future growth and innovation in the gaming industry.


Our successful application modernization and migration project for a gaming industry client showcases the power of cloud-native technologies. By moving to AWS and implementing microservices with containers and Kubernetes, we provided agility and scalability while minimizing downtime and data loss. Our observability stack and Managed Cloud Services ensured ongoing optimization and management. This transformation significantly impacted our client’s business, enhancing agility, scalability, and cost-efficiency, thus driving success in the competitive gaming industry.
