India e-commerce company Snapdeal announced that it achieved 75 percent drop in its monthly infrastructure costs after the deployment of its in-house hybrid cloud solution called Snapdeal Cirrus.
Snapdeal built the cloud platform Cirrus using open source platforms like Openstack with a home grown layer of infrastructure-as-code on top of it.
Since its launch in last September, Snapdeal has migrated over 300 microservices and 200 datastores onto Cirrus, without any downtime. During this live migration, the Indian online marketplace built the capabilities to orchestrate any microservice at will on their own private cloud or any of the public clouds like AWS, Azure or Google Cloud Platform.
“Since the launch of Snapdeal Cirrus our monthly burn on public cloud has been cut down to one-fourth. When we decided to build a hybrid solution, our infrastructure needs were growing exponentially and in a short span of 10 months we have built an extremely reliable and scalable platform, with a small but extremely talented team,” said Rajiv Mangla, chief technology officer, Snapdeal.
