Executive Summary

Due to significant growth in Atlassian usage, Watlow's Atlassian Cloud-hosted instance ran up against storage and security limitations. With the help of Cprime's AWS migration experts, Watlow moved to AWS to enjoy greater productivity, scalability, and security.

About Watlow

Watlow designs and manufactures industrial heaters, temperature sensors, controllers, and supporting software as well as assemblies – all of the components of a thermal system. Since 1922, Watlow has served a variety of industries:
semiconductor processing, environmental chambers, energy processes, diesel emissions, medical and food service equipment. Headquartered in St. Louis, MO, Watlow employs 2,000 employees in 9 manufacturing facilities and 3 technology centers in the United States, Mexico, Europe, and Asia.


The Challenge

Due to significant growth in Atlassian usage, Watlow’s Atlassian Cloud-hosted instance ran up against space and storage limitations. In addition, Atlassian Cloud did not provide encrypted static storage which was required by Watlow’s security requirements.

The Solution

Watlow migrated their Atlassian tool suite to Cprime’s managed hosting service due to space/storage limitations imposed on Atlassian’s cloud-based instances. The migration allowed a more desirable security solution of encrypted static storage (which was not supported by Atlassian at the time).
