Bookazine Case Study





Oracle Database Migration to AWS


Bookazine had maintained an on-premises data center in a co-location facility that housed business-critical Oracle Database Servers. As a result, they were paying a large amount of hardware and hosting costs.

SoftArt, as their Managed Service Provider, was supporting and continuously monitoring their Oracle infrastructure. SoftArt had, during its technology business review, identified the benefits of migrating to the cloud and started preparing the scope of work.

Having selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as their cloud provider, Bookazine leveraged SoftArt's cloud specialists to help them migrate to AWS and to provide ongoing management of their infrastructure. At the same time, disruptions weren’t an option.


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.
