Onix has received the 2019 Google Cloud Global Specialization Partner of the Year for Cloud Migration for achievement in the Google Cloud ecosystem by creating comprehensive and compelling cloud migration solutions for joint customers.
This is Onix's 11th Google Cloud Partner of the Year award, including a Google Cloud Infrastructure partner recognition, among others.
“We are honored and humbled to win this important award. It’s a testament to the skills of our team and the tireless work we perform on behalf of our valued customers,” noted Onix President and CEO Tim Needles. “While we achieved this award for our cloud migration expertise, we also provide comprehensive cloud services tailored to each customer’s needs, helping them achieve their strategic goals.”
As part of the application process, Onix detailed its successful cloud migration work with retail customer Batteries Plus Bulbs, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing battery, light bulb and smartphone/tablet repair franchise.
Batteries Plus made the strategic decision to migrate to the cloud to propel their business to the next level. As a current satisfied customer, they collaborated with Onix to partner on the migration to Google Cloud.
The Onix team guided Batteries Plus throughout the process, from the initial planning stages to post-migration support. Onix used Google Cloud Migrate for Compute Engine for an easy Google Cloud deployment without any latency issues.
Other Google Cloud computing technology used during the on-prem-to-Google Cloud migration included Cloud Storage, Cloud VPC and VPN, Cloud Load Balancing, Cloud IAM and Resource Manager, and Stackdriver Monitoring and Logging. The Onix-led migration team was able to move the company’s 114 servers in a month.
Jason Thelen, Infrastructure Architect at Batteries Plus said, “Onix’s team demonstrated notable skill and knowledge, and we were comfortable with their capabilities and the tools they were bringing forward in the project.”
Now that Batteries Plus is up and running on Google Cloud, Thelen said he sees a notable increase in performance and availability across all migrated applications in stores and at HQ.
“We’re delighted to recognize Onix’s work on behalf of customers,” said Carolee Gearhart, Vice President, Worldwide Channel Sales at Google Cloud. “Onix has demonstrated strong expertise and results in cloud migration over the past year, and we look forward to continuing our partnership to help customers succeed.”
