That is when the customer’s Systems Administrator began exploring new storage environment options, and ultimately connected with Atmosera.
The customer had an on-premise environment – they were looking to future proof and expand into the cloud with a partner that would provide strategic recommendations and optimization solutions to enhance the business as it expanded globally.
“Atmosera has been an excellent partner in migrating and managing our cloud environment. The whole team has been nothing but attentive with maximum effectiveness, and provided a top-of-the-line experience. for our organization.”
– Systems Administrator
Atmosera was ultimately selected as the cloud services team to provide hosted VM’s in Azure, and management services for the reconfigured environment.
“We went through Microsoft’s partner program and Atmosera seemed like the most reputable and professional option for us to pursue given customer track record and overall expertise in Azure”, said the customer’s Systems Administrator.
Atmosera completed an assessment of the current on-premise environment, and proposed a solution to build out an environment consisting of a single virtual network containing one subnet and two Azure VMs configured as domain controllers.
The domain controllers act as the primary authentication and DNS servers for the London and Pittsburgh sites and will replicate with the Seattle domain controllers. As part of the project, Atmosera assisted with the demotion of the London and Pittsburgh domain controllers and the clean-up of the domain following demotions.
The customer’s goal was to have redundancy in case of failure, but to also eliminate old on-prem hardware servers. After switching to Atmosera, the organization was able to increase disaster recovery, improve overall environment reliability, and eliminate 4 on-prem servers to better optimize system performance.
“Our account manager was nothing but helpful, professional, and reliable through the entire process. The weekly meetings during the intro were great to follow up on items and get the progress updates on what was going on and what needed to be done. The entire process was very smooth and seamless. Atmosera is great to work with and provided a seamless transition into a hybrid cloud environment from the limited on-prem systems we had been leveraging for years.
This customer is still on the path to try and eliminate as much on-prem hardware as possible as well as continuing to improve disaster recovery and failover options to ensure the Azure environment is stronger and more reliable. Atmosera will be there every step of the way to support our partners as their business continues to evolve.
