Atlantic British Improves Uptime, Performance, and Scalability
When Company Migrates Its Operations to the Cloud
About Atlantic British
Atlantic British Ltd. is a pioneer in Land Rover parts supply, providing customers with a wide array of affordable Land Rover parts, accessories, and performance upgrades. Many of the company’s parts are imported from around the world, and aren’t otherwise available in North America. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Atlantic British became North America’s first mail-order resource for maintenance parts for Land Rovers and Range Rovers. Since its origin in 1970, Atlantic British has continually embraced its three core values: having the largest inventory of parts, housing the best technical expertise, and providing five star customer service. Atlantic British is based in Clifton Park, New York.
We knew that continuing our growth meant finding a partner to guide us through our cloud transformation. We realized we couldn’t just lift and shift the application. We needed to reconfigure our application so that it could scale. Webapper understood our technical requirements and listened to our needs. Then they designed a solution that we felt gave us the best chance to succeed.
Leveraging the Promise of the Cloud
Atlantic British sought to improve system performance and stability. Using a niche technology stack including ColdFusion/Lucee, Atlantic British consulted Webapper based on industry knowledge and track record. Plans included moving to the cloud from a traditional data center, converting the server farm from Windows to Linux, migrating the application to Lucee (an open source Adobe ColdFusion alternative), and switching from Microsoft SQL Server to Aurora (a MySQL-compatible database built for the cloud). Clearly this ambitious migration presented significant technical and resourcing challenges. Atlantic British connected with Webapper to ensure their extensive cloud migration would go smoothly. Webapper's experience with high availability systems, cloud migration, Lucee/Adobe ColdFusion, large databases, and Windows/Linux were all factors in choosing Webapper.
