Donuts Inc. has announced its migration of backend operations to the cloud. Donuts’ registry now operates on Amazon Web Services and is probably the first major registry backend operator to migrate an existing on-premises backend to the cloud.
Donuts owns and operates more than 240 New gTLD extensions such as .life, .social and .games.
“Moving to the cloud has many strategic benefits for Donuts and its registrar partners. This transition will allow Donuts to scale platform capacity according to the growth of its registrations while leveraging the redundancy and resiliency of the AWS platform. By leveraging the power of the cloud and AWS services, Donuts can expand its operational footprint in new geographies and deploy cloud services to efficiently process and analyze registry data for Donuts and its partners at a competitive cost structure.”
“Our teams have mastered new technologies through this migration process. With this cloud migration, Donuts is positioned to take on new growth and innovation initiatives with confidence, knowing that our team of engineers and data scientists are up to the challenge,” reported Donuts CEO, Akram Atallah.
“We’ve fully automated the platform environment build-up, allowing us to set up a new registry platform in any geography with the push of a button,” says Benoit Levac, VP of Product and Engineering at Donuts. “This strengthens our position within the market as acquisition opportunities present themselves during this market consolidation.”
“As one of the most innovative registries in the new gTLD era, Donuts is committed to maintaining the best platform and technology stack. Cloud enablement provides the scale and agility required to seize business opportunities ahead. Donuts plans to continue to optimize the new cloud platform to increase security, reliability, and adapt to the ever-changing technology landscape.”
