Migration Optimized for Data

Karsun Solutions cloud modernization experts enable the safe transition away from expensive legacy technologies. As an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Advanced Consulting Partner, we leverage the AWS catalog as a key component in these cloud solutions. In this AWS Redshift migration case study, Karsun transitions a customer away from a costly proprietary database.

In this and other database migrations our experts treat data as a strategic asset, ensuring its optimal use in the future. Our Data-Led Migration Cloud Runways incrementally transforms legacy systems including those with short business lifecycle transactions and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) applications with long running transactions. These proven toolkits also enable replatforming databases running on-premise and a low-code DataOps pipeline.

The Challenge

One of Karsun’s public sector customers desired to move out of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and legacy technologies. The customer’s goal was to reduce its proprietary database technology footprint. The assets in concern were the enterprise data warehouse hosted in a columnar store database.

Modernizing with AWS Redshift

After creating a script-based cluster instantiation and configuration, we launched the AWS Redshift cluster set. This, along with S3 buckets and folders with appropriate privileges, was used as a replacement for the legacy data warehouse. This allowed for further refinement based on customer security requirements. View the architecture for this solution below:

Successful Data Migration

The Result

Karsun Solutions completed a successful 100% data migration into Redshift of the in-scope data warehouse.  Downstream applications and data consumers could successfully query performance and access data access. Based on this migration out of the data warehouse, the customer obtained the ability to retire or reduce the footprint of legacy technologies.
