Migration to AWS a gift of time and cost savings
Digital gift giving services
Buyatab, a Vancouver-based supplier of advanced online gift card infrastructure, technology and marketing services for leading brands in Canada, the United States and Europe, is growing at a rapid pace. Ranked number two on PROFIT 500: The Complete Ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies in 2017 and number three the year before, Buyatab is making its mark—quickly. Buyatab had started its business on traditional managed hosting with a monolithic application stack featuring .NET and SQL. In order to not only meet, but exceed the new expectations and demands of an expanding customer base, Buyatab needed to find a smart way to transform from a startup phase infrastructure into a scalable and flexible IT environment.

In order to not only meet, but exceed the new expectations and demands of an expanding customer base, Buyatab needed to find a smart way to transform from a startup phase infrastructure into a scalable and flexible IT environment. Buyatab’s technology team also recognized that the company needed to make a transition towards continuous deployment.
A transformative migration
The migration wasn’t a “lift and shift,” but rather a fully transformational migration that allowed Buyatab to take advantage of features within AWS that simply aren’t available anywhere else, including storage service capabilities, a sophisticated architecture, and highly advanced security features.
Choosing the Right Platform
Because Buyatab was heavily invested in Microsoft products, the technology team initiated a three month “bake off” between Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services Cloud (AWS).
In order to plan a smooth migration, Buyatab knew from experience that the best option was to engage with a smart and seasoned partner that not only understood AWS, but could help educate Buyatab’s staff as it leveraged AWS and adopted a DevOps Culture.
