Complex Migration to GCP Carried Out in Just 2 Months
About the Client
Park+ is a native digital company with an automotive superapp, has 700+ employees, and raised USD 35 million in capital. It has emerged as the country’s largest community of car owners, with over 60 lakh cars on its platforms. Their services include recharging FASTag electronic wallets, assisting in car maintenance, identifying the nearest and most cost-effective gasoline stations, facilitating insurance purchase and renewal, enabling used car comparisons, and much more.
In smart parking solutions, Park+ is the sole provider capable of efficiently allocating spaces within buildings and parking lots. Recognizing the potential for exponential growth, Park+ developed a comprehensive mobility super app, encompassing features similar to FASTag and enhanced parking management. To seek their ambitious 10X growth projections, the company sought to migrate its application to a more robust cloud ecosystem, a crucial juncture at which Niveus stepped in to help Park+.
Challenge: Originally built on microservices and open-source software, Park+ faced challenges meeting the surging demand as its popularity grew. The platform encountered latency and scalability issues affecting customer experience and hindered business growth.
Opportunity: Considering the business requirement, Niveus suggested that Park+ migrate their workload from AWS environments to the Google Cloud Platform. The choice was driven by the belief that Google Cloud’s offerings, particularly the top-tier Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) with fully managed microservices and robust auto-scaling capabilities, ideally suited their needs. Niveus recognized the potential of Cloud Load Balancing to manage platform traffic during usage spikes efficiently. Moreover, the power of BigQuery for autoscaling data analytics, enabling a continuous stream of personalized offerings based on user behavior, presented a compelling advantage.
