Headquartered in Greensboro, Georgia, they currently operate 4 distribution and fulfillment centers across the United States supporting businesses coast-to-cost and everything in between. Scaleability and availability being paramount in supporting their customers, they turned to AWS and Atayo to migrate their entire Data Center to the Cloud not only meet current demands but to support future innovation.
As businesses need to rationalize upgrades to aging hardware and the increased rates to with they need to innovate to stay competitive, the cloud has become the ubiquitous technology play as traditional datacenters and their continued investment are redirected to focus more on innovation in their core business. This is the place to which A2B Fulfillment reached with their own datacenter, fraught with outages, and the much-needed investment to upgrade aging infrastructure while improving performance, scalability, and availability.
In this case, A2B wanted to investigate how a cloud adoption strategy on AWS would provide necessary performance and availability for all of their critical business applications and workloads. No internal IT expertise in the AWS cloud platform, A2B realized they would need an AWS partner that would not only help them migrate to the cloud but be a true partner providing the necessary guidance every step of the way within the best interest of their business.
“Nothing short of an exceptional experience with Atayo. Experts in cloud migration, professional with their processes and implementation, a true partner. Quite simply a first class operation.“

As A2B searched for a partner, they were quickly introduced to Atayo Cloud Services, an AWS Consulting Partner to start their cloud journey. To get started with the migration, Atayo did an initial migration readiness assessment of all applications and workloads and identified a Landing Zone (multi-account) deployment strategy supporting necessary security, compliance, operational readiness. Once we solidified the strategy, Atayo migrated A2B’s infrastructure and data in less than 6 months from initial kick-off to full production operation at AWS. Within this timeframe, Atayo designed and migrated a multi-AZ VPC’s migrating all of the A2B’s Microsoft workloads using a lift and shift migration pattern, identified right-sizing Analytics and Microsoft SQL Server environments providing drastic improvements in performance and improved availability of customer facing application portals and order submission systems.
