Bookazine Case Study





Oracle Database Migration to AWS


Bookazine is a global distributor of books and a full-service wholesaler offering a wide-ranging and deep inventory of new releases and best sellers. They supply books to thousands of bookstores and libraries throughout the U.S. and around the world. They enjoy positive business relationships with more than 25,000 publishers worldwide.
They were paying a large amount of hardware and hosting costs due to an on-premises data center in a co-location facility, so they needed a cloud solution to cut these costs. SoftArt suggested them to migrate from Oracle Database Servers to Amazon Web Services (AWS).


  • Lacking cloud services and features
  • Need of migration without any disruptions
  • Hardware and hosting costs problems


SoftArt's cloud specialists help them in migrating to AWS. The cloud migration project was a resounding success.

  • Bookazine was able to convert Capital Expenditure (CapEx) into Operating Expenditure (OpEx) by migrating to the cloud.
  • They sold their hardware and servers, and cut costs by 60% post-migration.

After the success of the project, SoftArt continues to support Bookazine via Managed Services to ensure that their databases are running continuously.
