Terra Analytics has invested in a strategic partnership with Huawei Cloud to ensure the company can provide continued world-class data backup and disaster recovery services.

Terra Analytics made the decision to move all its applications to Huawei Cloud to enjoy the benefits of cloud computing technologies. Huawei Cloud allocated a dedicated team to work with Terra Analytics’ technical team to understand Terra Analytics’s legacy IT architecture and design the best practice cloud solution together.  After several workshops with the Huawei Cloud team, a reliable, scalable and cost-efficient cloud solution was validated through a proof of concept.

Terra Analytics established the partnership investment made with Huawei Cloud through a deep understanding of their customers’ challenges. These include limited capacity to meet expansion needs, inability to achieve full disaster recovery and failover services without an over reliance on limited and skilled in-house specialists and physical infrastructure. “As we provide our clients with a Software as a Service (SaaS) product to enable them to undertake their digital transformation strategies for the various applications at Terra, we believe that Huawei Cloud is a reliable world-class cloud platform to help us to succeed in this goal,” said Willy Govender, CEO of Terra Analytics. The opportunity now provides our customers to release their IT engineers for the all-important tasks of application configuration and optimisation and IT hardware environment trouble-shooting and repair tasks.

Terra has achieved the ability to easily migrate legacy applications onto Huawei Cloud without the traditional concerns around computer setup, storage, and network infrastructures, and is able to scale down or up as required. With the help of Huawei Cloud Eye Service, the free and comprehensive monitoring platform on Huawei Cloud, Terra can now track CPU, memory and storage utilisation – both historically and in real time, allowing it to optimise utilisation and reduce TCO by at least 30%.
