The Challenges

Legacy

Zudo Music’s application was hosted in Heroku featuring a legacy version of Ruby on Rails along with dependent modules and gems.

Optimization

The current state and environment left Zudo with dependencies, application maintenance challenges, high cloud costs, and zero logging and monitoring abilities.

Scaling

Zudo Music’s users were growing rapidly and their team knew these dependencies would prohibit them for scaling as needed.

The Solution

The Result

Zudo Music migration from Heroku to Google Cloud has resulted in better performance of the application & has provided a platform for centralized logging, monitoring, and security. A fully automated CI/CD process using Cloud Build has significantly improved the software delivery process. Zudo Music can now scale based on its growing userbase while maintaining tight cost and security controls.
