With roughly four million student participants, cheerleading is a $2 billion sport in the US. Omni Cheer, a subsidiary of GK Elite Sportswear, offers highly customizable cheer uniforms that can be designed in thousands of configurations. Omni Cheer’s on-premises Sitecore application was due to be upgraded to the cloud, and the company looked to Copenhagen Mist to make the transition seamless.
Underpinning the move to the cloud, Mist is transforming the site’s cloud foundation from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS), with no disruptions to Omni Cheer’s development flow, uptime or business continuity. Response times improved 50% immediately with Azure Blueprint’s distribution layer, allowing IT staff and executives alike to observe traffic moving smoothly across the country on Mist’s configurable performance dashboards.
