Company Info

Caudalie is a French, paraben-free skincare company renowned for its clean skincare with a variety of products ranging from anti-aging to solving dry skin concerns. The company’s unique products, including Vinotherapy, harnesses grape seed extract to obtain the most beneficial antioxidants.

Problem / Statement Definition

Caudalie’s IT infrastructure was located on premises in New York City and needed to be refreshed. Caudalie’s IT infrastructure was facing many issues including high costs for hardware and software maintenance, as well as performance issues. Caudalie considered multiple Cloud vendors for moving some resources to the Cloud. Caudalie knew that moving to the Cloud would be a tedious process. Since they were new to AWS Cloud migrations, they wanted guidance on cloud migration to send their critical workloads to the AWS Cloud. Uptime of servers and security were very critical, due to the nature of Caudalie’s business. Caudalie decided to move forward to implement the solution with Amazon Web Services and Triumph Tech, Advanced AWS Consulting Partner. Speed, security, and a track record for effective guidance were the deciding factors for selecting AWS and Triumph Tech.

Proposed Solution and Architecture

Triumph Tech has a rapid, timesaving process of cloud migration to AWS Cloud including:

  • Creation of a disaster recovery site.
  • Securing the environment per best-practices and compliance requirements.

After Triumph Tech held a discovery session and interviewed key stakeholders,  Triumph Tech created an AWS Architecture future state diagram for best practices, including:

  • Amazon EC2
  • AWS VPC Services and Applications
  • MS SQL
  • PostgreSQL
  • Databases were migrated to the AWS Cloud using AWS Migration Services
  • Secured to best encryption standards all aspects of data-in-transit and data-at-rest
  • Hardened security with AWS’s proprietary security services including AWS Amazon GuardDuty, AWS CloudTrail, transferring logs to Logs Bucket, and AWS Security Hub to view security alerts along with security posture across Caudalie accounts.

Amazon Web Services’ innovative solutions allowed Caudalie to replace their data center, implement disaster recovery, and migrate to the AWS Cloud seamlessly.

In less than two months, Triumph Tech completed the following tasks:

assessing the workload environment
AWS cost breakdown by services
interviewing the product owners and decision makers
complete the migration
set up disaster recovery

Outcomes of Project & Success Metrics

After migrating Caudalie’s workloads to the AWS Cloud, Caudalie gained accelerated speed, agility, robust security, and a disaster recovery solution. They now have reduced operational risks and time recovery objectives. Triumph Tech completed the migration both within budget and well before the operation’s deadline.
