Evernote Corporation`s Migration to Cloud
Abstract Case Intro 1 Case Intro 2 Excerpts


Evernote, a note taking app developed by US-based Evernote Corporation, was available over the browser as well as on Android- and iOS-based devices. It was a powerful storage and retrieval system for documents and data. It could store everything from PDFs, spreadsheets, documents, videos, emails, etc.

Evernote maintained its own servers and networks to store its data. This system was supposed to give the company the flexibility to design its products in a more productive manner. But along the way, it found that maintaining servers and networks was expensive, and also affected the quality of the services provided.

The company needed flexible and fast processes to make sure its customers got uninterrupted service. In September 2016, Evernote announced that it would migrate to a cloud infrastructure using the Google Cloud Platform.

The migration had benefits for Evernote like reduced latency and improvement in connection consistency. Migrating to the cloud enabled the engineers at Evernote to concentrate on improving the product features instead of spending time on maintaining the physical infrastructure of the data centers.


The case is structured to achieve the following teaching objectives:

  • This case could be taken up in the Information Technology class for MBA students.
  • This case gives an overview of the process of migration from physical data centers to cloud infrastructure.
  • The case also outlines the benefits of using cloud infrastructure.
