Hallmark recommended the customer to migrate the applications and data from Google Cloud Platform to AWS cloud to resolve the issues the customer is facing and to achieve a scalable and stable infrastructure environment. Hallmark performed the process of problem discovery and issue analysis. The migration to AWS resulted into achieving a reliable platform for running Microsoft workloads more efficiently and securely.
