Moving millions of files to cloud was a time-consuming task and a risk to operations without NetApp's tool to automate and protect the small but precious packages.
MailerLite sends more than 30 million emails per day and serves hundreds of thousands of landing pages. Although the files add up to less than 10TB of data, their sheer number caused MailerLite’s team storage and performance headaches.
On the migration day, it took maybe one hour—and we had all our files safe on Google Cloud. NetApp XCP is amazing. No other data mover tool in the market can achieve that. And we tried a bunch of them.

By turning to NetApp and Google Cloud, MailerLite solved infrastructure issues - from efficiently migrating 100 million small files to running an extensive NFS file system conveniently in the cloud.
Using XCP and Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud for migration removed the risk and headache.
MailerLite drastically reduced both the initial synchronization and subsequent incremental syncing. XCP can run data streaming at higher throughput rates on demand. Using top speed helped MailerLite to keep the scheduled three maintenance hours on the migration day.
Additionally, MailerLite is using NetApp Astra to create new Kubernetes services for non-coding customers, allowing them to expand the business into new areas.
100 million files moved to the cloud in three hours with zero impact on service delivery. MailerLite can focus on new services, not the supporting infrastructure.
