Customer

One of the world's largest provider of Internet television network listed on Fortune 500 and Global 2000. The company offers its high-class services to more than 80 million customers, not only in the US but also around the world.

Challenge

The customer decided to start using Amazon Redshift data warehouse. They were looking for a reliable way to complete the transition to the cloud in a short time. The mission of the Ispirer team was to find the most efficient solution for migrating the Teradata database to Amazon Redshift.

Solution

During the Extension Stage, Ispirer Migration and Modernization Toolkit developers have extended some of the existing features to provide the best conversion result after automated migration. They have prepared a truly suitable solution for this conversion project.

The toolkit was tested for compliance with all individual customer requirements and delivered ready for implementation.

The process of migrating Teradata to Amazon Redshift was performed using Ispirer MnMTK on site. The toolkit license included free technical support from Ispirer migration experts assigned to this project, as well as training of the customer’s technical team. Ispirer migration consultants supported the entire conversion process and were ready to resolve any migration issues upon request.

As a result, the existing Teradata database, which involved tables, several GB of data and SQL objects contained in about 30,000 lines of code, was completely moved to Amazon Redshift.

Benefits Derived from Conversion

The migration solution provided by Ispirer made it easy to perform migration from the Teradata platform to a new data warehouse. The migration was completed within the promised time frame and cost estimate. As a result, the company was able to increase productivity through the use of Amazon Redshift and take full advantage of the modern environment.
