A worldwide leader in streaming radio content, completed migration from Rackspace to AWS with Accelario

Nobex Radio, a world leader in streaming live radio content, completed a successful migration of their production database from Rackspace to Amazon Web Services. Nobex migrated an SQL Server 2005 on Rackspace physical server to MS SQL Server 2014 on AWS EC2, in one process with little downtime due to Accelario’s unique capabilities in the Cloud.

Ran Rosin, VP Products from Nobex says: “We have thousands of customers and millions of users worldwide working online with our system. The database we migrated is a critical one and downtime needed to be minimal. Also, as part of the migration process from Rackspace to AWS we wanted to upgrade the MS SQL version and have some changes in the database structure at the same time. Accelario was the perfect choice; one software to perform all of these requirements in one quick process and with minimum downtime. Actually, the downtime we experienced was mainly due to servers and network performances between the two Cloud providers.”

Accelario is a software built specifically for cases like this one”, explains Eyal Arbel, Accelario CEO, “customers want to be independent in choosing their Cloud platform. Also customers needs are to move, refresh and protect their Databases easily both On Premise and on Cloud. With Accelario all those scenarios are supported, as well as any change to the database technology. Accelario is also a great DataOps solution for TDM (Test Data Management) and DevOps teams, allowing customers to select sensitive data to perform on-the-fly Masking and to select only required data for Test Environments, vs. having to copy the whole Production database“.
