Case Studies

Old Mutual engaged Vaxowave to build out their Platform using Site Reliability Engineering techniques to improve performance and stability on the enterprise-wide strategic business process engineering and workflow application. One of the core tasks incorporated into this service was to collaborate with both AWS and Old Mutual in the migration of the application to AWS. 

This resulted in a significant annual cost reduction, achieved higher stability and performance outputs, along with improved availability and resilience across the entire workflow application. These tangible improvements in the non-functional elements of this platform can be attributed to using site reliability concepts made easier with the use of AWS capabilities

Old Mutual

Vaxowave worked closely with Old Mutual to move their enterprise integration platform from Windows to Linux and to migrate it from on-premise onto the AWS cloud. This is part of the data centre migration strategy, and this move has enabled additional support and scalability on a high volume mission critical platform. It is a significant milestone in the strategic move to cloud
