Keurig Dr. Pepper perks up data management with Google Cloud
A CPG beverage giant is shifting its data footprint to a Google Cloud platform.
Keurig Dr. Pepper is entering a multi-year agreement to migrate its data to virtual machines running on Google Cloud by the end of the year. The company is supporting an effort to digitally transform to an integrated, agile IT operations infrastructure, and will retire two data centers, housing more than 1,000 physical servers.
The beverage provider is leveraging Google Cloud's Live Migration service, which is designed to enable enterprises to seamlessly move virtual servers from one physical machine to another with minimal disruption.
"Google Cloud is a true partner that gives us the stability and flexibility to support critical business applications needed to drive innovation and ensure business continuity," said John Gigerich, senior VP and CIO for Keurig Dr. Pepper. "The migration to Google Cloud has been seamless and was a key project in our merger integration and modernization efforts as Keurig Dr. Pepper. We look forward to exploring additional partnership opportunities with Google in the future."
"Data is the fuel to help companies transform their businesses, and those that leverage the cloud will thrive in this new era of retail," said Carrie Tharp, VP of retail & consumer at Google Cloud. "We're thrilled to partner with Keurig Dr. Pepper, and we look forward to helping the company reach the next level in its digital transformation journey."
The contract with Keurig Dr. Pepper will be implemented in conjunction with Google Cloud services partner HCL America.
