“Sharestates had been running its applications and databases on legacy infrastructure in a private cloud environment at Rackspace. The decision to migrate to AWS has modernized Sharestates' infrastructure, enhanced security, and increased efficiency. Through a three-pronged approach leveraging AWS, Sharestates now has a new, secure infrastructure as a foundation, monitoring by Rackspace and the ability by Sharestates to maintain its own internal system,” said D K Sinha, President of Public Cloud Rackspace Technology. “The new infrastructure approach has enhanced Sharestates’ customer experience, optimized operations, improved scalability and provided the company the latest cloud technologies and best practices.”

“Our infrastructure transition was a significant milestone for Sharestates, and the Rackspace team played a crucial role in helping to ensure a smooth process. The comprehensive documentation provided by the Rackspace team served as a valuable resource to communicate the changes and gain necessary approvals,” said Radni Davoodi, Acting Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder, Sharestates. "The Rackspace team mapped everything so brilliantly, like a roadmap or a cheat sheet, making it easy to approve each change quickly."

Since the migration, Sharestates has realized several improvements:

  • Faster user interface experience by investors.

  • Improved internal reporting experience by staff.

  • Faster processing speed by borrowers.

  • Improved performance of web application modules by all users.

  • Improved banking transfer processing speed.

“We recommended a single-phase migration, allowing the transition to be completed over a weekend without downtime. Using the Landing Zone Accelerator on AWS (LZA), the Rackspace team deployed a secure and compliant landing zone in less than two weeks, providing a solid foundation for Sharestates' AWS environment,” added D K Sinha. “The migration team utilized various tools and services, including AWS Application Migration Service and proprietary scripts to efficiently migrate Sharestates' 3TB of data across 11 servers, ensuring a smooth and secure transition.”
