The Russian branch of Crocs, Inc., a global leader in comfortable casual footwear for women, men and children, now leverages CROC Cloud to ensure reliability and high performance of its 1C and some infrastructure services. Moreover, CROC Cloud hosts the retailer's testing environments for several outside IT development teams. This flexible and scalable cloud platform helps accelerate and improve product roll-out and to manage costs by team.

In 2020, Crocs Russia decided to migrate from its own infrastructure and servers, which it had been using for eight years, to a public cloud. Instead of upgrading its infrastructure, the company opted for a more cost-effective migration to CROC Cloud.

As a result of the project, the customer not only reduced CAPEX, but also dramatically accelerated its 1С-based key enterprise management application. The entire on-premise infrastructure was precisely replicated in CROC Cloud. The company’s experts advised the customer all the way, from design to migration to further system development in the cloud.

We chose this service provider for two main reasons. First, CROC Cloud fault-tolerance guarantees continuous availability of our services. Second, such a high-speed response and customer-focused approach are very hard to find on the Russian market. CROC Cloud Services specialists can solve any problem within a day and, most importantly, are easy to reach without any formalities or red tape.

The migration of 1C systems to the cloud is becoming a routine operation for us. In 2020, we upgraded our infrastructure, launched a new storage tier for such applications, and boosted our skills over the course of several large projects. Now, we know exactly how to optimize cloud platform and infrastructure software operation for 1C, aggregate all 1C roles on one virtual machine for shared memory, translate physical keys, and much more. Thanks to our comprehensive infrastructure and application background, our Gilev’s 1С load test score is typically 35 (sometimes 43) points.
