Mersenne needed a partner that could meet their clients high expectations with best-in-class knowledge and timely delivery.

Nordcloud quickly provided a team of experts to create a service adjacent to Magento.


Nordcloud chose Google Kubernetes Engine as a target platform for Magento migration and created a service to put next to Magento so that it could auto-scale its catching layer.

Multi services were used:

  • Cloud SQL
  • Cloud Memory Store
  • Stack Driver
  • File Store
  • Google CDN


The next stage was to build another service (sw) to make the catching layer of Magento scalable without the need of refactoring Magento.
