With datacentre closure on the horizon, the pressure was on for Skyscanner to complete its migration onto AWS. DevOpsGroup was enlisted to help accelerate the process. Our consultants and engineers worked closely with Skyscanner’s product teams to devise and implement a migration strategy.

However, the operational constraints of physical datacentres were putting a stranglehold on development and scalability. What’s more, high maintenance costs were absorbing funds that would have been better spent on innovation.
