Zudo Music | Case Study | Cost-Effective Heroku to Google Cloud Migration

Zudo Music
Google Cloud VM Migration

Qwinix delivered a cost-effective Heroku to Google Cloud Migration for Zudo Music. Through the move to Google Cloud, this searchable music library was able to optimize for performance, security, and cost.

Zudo Music is a searchable music library that provides content creators with a truly customized production experience. Their growing user base could no longer be supported effectively as their application featured a legacy version of Ruby on Rails and created a number of dependencies and maintenance challenges. Qwinix migrated from Heroku to Google Cloud Platform on a tight to cut cloud costs by ~50% and providing strong security and scalability. 

The Challenge

  • Zudo Music’s application was hosted in Heroku featuring a legacy version of Ruby on Rails along with dependent modules and gems.
  • The current state and environment left Zudo with dependencies, application maintenance challenges, high cloud costs, and zero logging and monitoring abilities.
  • Zudo Music’s users were growing rapidly and their team knew these dependencies would prohibit them for scaling as needed.

The Solution

Qwinix successfully migrated the entire application stack into Google Cloud. To reduce costs, Qwinix built the application in Docker, deployed into CloudRun & CloudSQL to maintain security. Cloud Storage Transfer service was used to sync the contents from S3 to Cloud Storage. The new solution also provides centralized logging & monitoring using Stackdriver improving efficiency.

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.
