Takeaway – Katana1

Katana1 Takeaway

How may I help you?

Why should you use Katana1, how good are we, just ask us!

We’ve asked clients we’ve done excellent work to provide mad references and ‘success’ stories. I’m investigating whether our vendors will pay for ‘not-success’ stories. I’ll keep you posted. 

“Katana1 is
rad.”


“I told our google account manager that we needed technical help. I was immediately escorted into a taxi, and the next thing I knew I was locked in a room full of crazy long swords and intense-looking people. They forced me to work out our cloud solution. I was so scared that I finished the draft of a full solution in under 4 hours. Will definitely do it again. Seriously though, Katana1 is rad.”

Reposit Power 

The shift to GCP was actioned in phases, firstly, design a solid GCP foundation then transition from the legacy IaaS platform to the best Google Cloud service. For example, legacy HBase to Bigtable, legacy bare metal compute to GCE and auto-scaling Instance Groups, PostgreSQL to Cloud SQL and expansion into multiple regions to support DR and international development.

Earth AI

Earth AI manages multi-TB datasets that require comprehensive AI to optimise targeting of geological surveys. Originally using AWS, Earth AI was interested in GKE and massive -scale components. With a rapid plan to expand into the US market Earth AI requested Katana1’s knowledge, know how and on the job training to build out solid GCP foundations and scale rapidly into GCP

“Get
to the guts”


“99% of what Reposit now knows about GCP stemmed from what Katana1 has taught us along the way. This includes everything from the tech to the billing to navigating Google internals and processes. We like to be very hands-on and “get to the guts” of how stuff works. I think this was a bit of a shift from how Katana1 but we really enjoyed it.”

Mike Leonard, CTO Reposit Power
