OVH did migrate all its regions from Juno to Newton, you should be able 
to find presentations on that from past summits videos.

Similarly, Verizon media / Oath did migrate from Juno to Ocata. James 
Penick did presentations and some blog articles about it.

But yes, as others said, that would certainly not be the first upgrade I 
ever attempted. Juno pre-dates most of the work on simplifying upgrades, 
so it's a painful starting point.
