Scalability and Cost Savings Within the Cloud

When Raley's Supermarkets recognized the need to simplify its IT landscape and rationalize its number of vendors, Raley's turned to Redapt to explore the cloud and its array of services.

In a nutshell

The problem

Raley's realized it needed to retake control of its applications running on Virtustream and reduce overall cost and complexity without increasing staff. Raley's hybrid IT infrastructure consisted of multiple RHEL virtual machines (VMs) hosted at Virtustream, and several on-premises servers.

The solution

Azure experts from Redapt worked with the Raley's team to analyze their business needs on migration to Azure. Armed with this information, Raley's engaged with Redapt experts to build a reference architecture that suited business objectives and an application migration plan.

The outcome

Redapt migrated RHEL VMs from Virtustream to Microsoft Azure using Azure Site Recovery. In addition, Redapt created and standardized a repeatable process for seamlessly migrating, developing, and testing production systems.

Moment of clarity

To reclaim control over-in-house applications, Raley's Supermarkets—a privately held, family-owned supermarket chain that operates 129 stores under the Raley's, Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods, Market 5-ONE-5, and Food Source names in northern California and Nevada—collaborated with Redapt to architect, migrate, and implement applications within Azure.

What the company needed

From analyzing the company's on-prem environment to standardizing a seamless and repeatable migration process, Redapt helped Raley's modernize to gain the business agility it needed.
