Business Value: Niveus helped Belstar in the improvement of the customers’ experience with enhanced performance, security, reliability, scalability and increased availability, even during peak loads.

Belstar hads their cloud infrastructure deployed on cloud, with a majority hosted on AWS and some on Azure. The company envisioned to create a Cloud Native platform that enhances their customer experience. To ensure a smooth migration process, they desired a secure Landing Zone on Google Cloud Platform to leverage a secure environment.


Business Solution
