Helping eCommerce Company Lulus Scale Better, Faster, and Cheaper

When Lulus achieved a scale that was leading to runaway costs, it partnered with Redapt to move its eCommerce platform to the Google Cloud Platform.

In a nutshell

1
The problem

Because Lulus was running its eCommerce platform on colo hosting, it incurred huge costs from upgraded hardware as its platform grew. The company needed a way to reduce its costs while modernizing its services to allow for scale and cost efficiencies.

2
The solution

After extensive analysis, Redapt worked with Lulus to modernize its existing eCommerce application to run on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). This process began with a pilot program involving a few of its services. Once the findings from the program were in, Lulus accelerate its migration in partnership with Google.

3
The outcome

Lulus realized an immediate 15% reduction in costs by migrating to GCP and building a foundation that could scale quickly and easily.

Moment of clarity

It became clear that Lulus would benefit greatly from moving to a cloud provider. And since it uses several products from the Google ecosystem, GCP was a natural fit.

What the company needed

Lulus needed guidance in choosing and migrating to a cloud provider that best fit its needs. 

Redapt worked with Lulus to conduct a joint architecture and design session to help the company understand the value of GCP and Kubernetes. We also helped Lulus implement a pilot program that resulted in the modernization of its existing solution. Once the program was completed, Redapt created a strategy and migration plan for Lulus to move its entire platform to GCP.

Our recommendation

  • Joint architecture and design session to help Lulus understand the value of GCP and Kubernetes.

  • A pilot program where some of Lulus’ services were migrated to GCP for testing.

  • Hashicorp Terraform Automation to help in the setting up of Lulus’ infrastructure in GCP.

  • Spend monitoring during and after the migration to realize cost savings.

The end result

Through its partnership with Redapt, Lulus was able to construct a better scaling platform while reducing costs.

  • An immediate 15% cost reduction

    following the migration.

  • Ability to scale

    as needed without a major investment.

  • Modernized eCommerce platform

    and development process to efficiently provide better service to customers.
