Helped to implement an IaaS Cloud solution that improved productivity and saved $500,000

Company Information

An innovative IoT platform company sought to improve its software deployment process, enhance productivity, and reduce IT costs. The challenge was to modernize its IT infrastructure to support more efficient development processes, ensure data security through automated backups, and provide anywhere-access to IT systems for its staff. ProCogia was engaged to architect and implement a cloud solution that leveraged Azure IaaS, bringing about substantial operational improvements and cost savings.

The Challenge

The company faced several issues with its existing infrastructure, including inefficient software deployment, the high cost of IT maintenance, and the absence of a robust system for automatic data backups. These challenges hindered staff productivity and customer service quality, while also posing risks to data security. A comprehensive cloud solution was required to address these issues, streamline development processes, and facilitate a more flexible and secure working environment.

Procogia’s Approach

We used Ansible to provision all necessary Azure resources such as VNET Cloud Services and network components, as well as Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), including VM, SQL Azure and BlobStorage.

Docker enabled us to streamline the software deployment process and ensure that containers provisioned via Ansible onto dedicated VMs were backward compatible.

The Results

Greater productivity and customer service. With anywhere-access to their IT system, staff can be more productive, spend less time traveling and deliver better customer service.

Peace of mind. The system is always backed up automatically, eliminating the previous need for daily backups.

Reduced IT cost. The Cloud solution saved the client between $400,000 and $500,000 a year.

Enhanced Client Capabilities Include – Significantly fewer errors in the software stack. Substantial reduction their development-turnaround times. Ability to engage with their customers through the implementation of robust PoC environments.
