Whatever the requirement–everything from enterprise-readiness fundamentals like reliability, performance, and security, to innovations for enabling microservices architecture or hybrid/multi-cloud deployments–the Google Cloud networking portfolio has something to offer.

For Wayfair Inc., an American e-commerce company and one of the world’s largest online sellers of home goods, globally resilient connectivity was the key to streamlining its move to the cloud. Formerly known as CSN Stores, the company was founded in 2002 and now sells over 14 million home furnishing and decor items from over 11,000 suppliers.

In early 2018, Wayfair was thinking about the best way to run and scale its on-prem server fleet to support its largest sales event of the year–Way Day. With existing data centers and compute capacity around the globe, Wayfair decided to explore a hybrid architecture in Google Cloud that would let them burst their capacity during events like Way Day and Black Friday.
