Cloud Services are needed for efficiency and growth
Nettology Case Study. A mid-size company with offices in three locations needs to increase efficiency and position themselves for future growth. Their big challenge: to keep IT costs from soaring. The company sells products to the public, and needs a more efficient way to share data between their offices and manufacturing plant. Secure data sharing between all three locations is essential. The CEO and CIO came to Nettology after searching for an experienced AWS managed service partner.
After an initial conference call, the Nettology team had a clear understanding of the company’s needs and goals. A video conference helped Nettology’s engineers get a thorough understanding of the company’s current business IT infrastructure.
The company plans to expand their product offerings in 2019. Adopting a more agile and flexible IT infrastructure gives them room to grow. Public product orders spike October through December. A Hybrid Cloud strategy lets them keep on-premise servers isolated for security, and easily adjust cloud usage for peak times. With consumer services on the AWS Cloud, the company can quickly scale up and down as needed to save on computing costs.
Defining the public and private components of the Hybrid Cloud
Nettology’s engineers looked at the company’s server capacities, file system, security, firewalls and available disk space. A technology roadmap defined the steps needed to achieve company’s objectives.
Instead of buying more servers to increase computing power, Nettology’s engineers freed space on the company’s existing servers. Confidential data remains on private servers at the company’s headquarters. Select applications and data are now on the AWS Cloud.
Nettology Case Study Success: The Hybrid Cloud Model positions the company for future success
Nettology’s engineers handled the data transfer. It was essential that the company’s normal business service would not be effected by the deployment process. Batch workloads were set to load up overnight into the public cloud. This ensured that no one server was being overtaxed with requests.
The company was pleased with the seamless integration of cloud services. By moving to a hybrid cloud architecture, they have a platform that allows them to easily add cloud-based apps for business intelligence, analytics and automation.
