Challenge

ModelManagement approached Mineiros because they wanted to transform their software development process by adopting new cloud-native techniques so that they could bring more new features to market faster. For that, they needed a reliable cloud platform on Google Cloud implemented with Infrastructure as Code while allowing for knowledge transfer of best practices the internal team could follow. While ModelManagement was already using some Google Cloud Services, they didn’t adopt Infrastructure as Code because of the overwhelming complexity and lack of knowledge.

What we did

Mineiros helped ModelManagement to implement a multi-project architecture with Infrastructure as Code using our Google Cloud Landing Zone solution. Based on the Mineiros Service Catalog for Google Cloud, we implemented different GKE autopilot clusters for staging and production environments. A project for shared resources, such as a Docker image registry used by multiple environments was provided, and access was granted to the required services in the environments.

After the initial setup of the new platform, Mineiros migrated all existing workloads to the new GKE Autopilot clusters, and the old environment was decommissioned. Our CI/CD automation for Terraform allows teams to review, approve and deploy infrastructure changes in time. In addition, Mineiros provided a comprehensive observability suite that allowed ModelManagements’ developers to identify and resolve issues before causing a negative impact on their customers.

The idea of providing golden paths rather than golden cages is key. Mineiros helped us to build a platform that didn’t restrict developers but enabled them.
