The Challenge:

Stiller had multiple on-premise servers that were reaching end of life and running legacy applications. The investment required to upgrade and maintain such hardware can be costly and poses risk of data loss.

Over the years, the business has grown their online offering, including tracking of stock and deliveries. They needed a reliable platform that offered scalability and could cope with large data sets as well as disaster recovery and backup capabilities.

The Solution:

Following an initial investigation to determine the requirements, razorblue proposed a future-proofed cloud platform solution. The migration sees Stiller’s data located within razorblue’s UK datacentres, eliminating the requirement for upfront expenditure whilst providing 24/7 support.

razorblue’s private cloud has provided a scalable and reliable environment to host Stiller’s business applications, removing any prior concerns about complex backups, disaster recovery solutions, or power issues.
