As the world of technology continues to grow at a fast pace, businesses will need a more efficient and agile infrastructure to compete. Doing more with less is the new mantra and achieving it is possible by moving to a public cloud, such as Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, etc.
Public clouds are different from private clouds in the sense that they leverage the internet to give businesses storage, infrastructure, and servers. This allows sharing of the physical hardware with all the companies associated with a particular public cloud. Think of it as a huge building with all the required infrastructure rented out to multiple tenants. You pay as you go and therefore reduced costs.
By moving to the public cloud, you will experience the following benefits:
- Reduced costs
- Absolutely no maintenance
- On-demand resources for unlimited scalability
- High reliability and flexibility
- Higher levels of control
Given these numbers and the many benefits associated with the public cloud, many small and medium-sized enterprises are migrating to the cloud and seeing transformational IT outcomes. However, to ensure a smooth transition from on-prem to the cloud, you need a public cloud IT transformation service provider that can help your business with infrastructure operations.

2. Customer: Eshopbox
Industry: Retail & eCommerce
Problem Statement: As Eshopbox scaled and their operations expanded, they started building their own infrastructure and dedicated server technology. But their talent and time were increasingly getting spent on infrastructure maintenance instead of their core jobs.
Eshopbox is a fulfillment infrastructure provider to help brands deliver exceptional customer experience across eCommerce platforms. They were looking to move to a public cloud to save themselves the time spent on infrastructure maintenance.
MediaAgility suggested Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as the best public cloud since it was the most natural choice for Eshopbox’s needs. MediaAgility’s public cloud IT transformation services and migration to GCP helped Eshopbox by:
- abstracting from the underlying platform,
- billing them only for what they use, and
- scaling their technology as they further scale their operations nationwide
Something which instilled confidence about MediaAgility is the way they closely work with Google and know about Google Cloud Platform. With the strong Google Cloud Infrastructure and MediaAgility partnership, we have grown as much in just 3 months as we would have in 2 yearsMayur Karwa, Co-Founder, Eshopbox
By moving to GCP, the growth experienced by Eshopbox in three months was equivalent to what they would have in two years.
