InterVision conducted a DR assessment for PCC and determined that the legacy offsite tape backup strategy for all of PCC's data could be dramatically improved by embracing the AWS cloud. Prior to implementing the new solution, it would have taken PCC days and possibly weeks to back up and restore its datacenter and applications, costing them hundreds of hours to complete the effort. With the new AWS/Commvault back-up and restore solution, PCC can quickly and easily restore its entire datacenter in a relatively short amount of time and staff effort.
InterVision designed a cybersecurity tool that fit the client's authentication needs, deploying ClearPass using guest-sponsored methodology, which allowed company employees to approve or deny any guest on their network. Also, the solution enabled the network administrator to monitor guest users, to see suspicious activities in real-time. Not only did the solution meet the client's goals; they were so satisfied with the benefits their network experienced in security improvements, they have been engaging with InterVision for additional projects.
Ohlone College engaged with InterVision to plan and develop their cloud architecture environment, and to migrate their primary Drupal website to the AWS cloud. InterVision constructed a cloud architecture strategy that documented recommendations such as the architectural buildout in AWS and the strategy to migrate applications and websites after the AWS infrastructure had been developed and deployed. With a fully automated CI/CD pipeline for multiple applications within AWS using AWS native services, Ohlone has gone from having slow, manual application deployments to zero-downtime deployments. Ohlone's website has also become much more robust and scalable now that it's deployed in AWS, going from no scaling to auto scaling capabilities.
Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana Uses DRaaS to Align with Production Demands – and Saves on Costs
Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana's goal was to protect several critical applications. They implemented InterVision's DRaaS solution, replicated and tested, and were happy with the results. When their recovery environment footprint increased by eight times, they noticed that their bill did not.
InterVision's Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) made internal and external demands simple tasks for this medical solutions company. An elastic infrastructure allowed the client to take on any size client knowing they could scale without runaway capital costs. DRaaS provided the company access to their critical and sensitive data with the highest levels of availability, safety and security.
InterVision was chosen to help the California Secretary of State's office ensure that their website would not be a point of weakness for hackers to tamper with the voting process of elections. We secured communication to the website and migrated the on-premise MySQL database to AWS. The end result was a modernized website that utilized an upgraded CMS and also leveraged cloud based autoscaling and elasticity. These changes alleviated previous performance problems and allowed the SOS website to support the election season without any issues.
The California Department of Technology (CDT), Office of Information Security (OIS) recognized the importance of preparing for State entities to migrate significant internal and customer applications into the cloud. To ensure that these efforts were realized with appropriate secure development processes, security architecture, configuration, and monitoring/management capabilities, CDT sought out InterVision, who developed DevOps/SecOps tools and processes to support both multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.
CDT chose InterVision to be their technology partner in this endeavor and we developed an AWS infrastructure solution to meet their needs. We also architected an AWS multi-account strategy with multiple environments to meet security best practices. By utilizing the AWS cloud, CDT now has a highly scalable and highly available Splunk implementation for data collection, analysis, and security monitoring of critical infrastructure. As CDT expands and extends Splunk to monitor even more devices and environments, the AWS infrastructure will be able to scale and extend accordingly.
Sierra was interested in utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a part of their backup storage solution. InterVision was asked to provide a solution that would accommodate the backup and disaster recovery needs for their ERP application. InterVision's delivery of a proof-of-concept with AWS Storage Gateway provided Sierra with a clearer picture of how AWS can be utilized to help them reach their business continuity and disaster recovery goals. By the end of this project, Sierra observed the benefits of adopting AWS, and the seamless execution of InterVision sparked greater confidence within Sierra's team to adopt additional cloud services.
MCCCD had state-of-the-art on-premise technology and a strong IT team to manage the district's local datacenter. However, being a southern California-based college, MCCCD's datacenter and applications were deemed vulnerable and difficult to recover from potential disasters. MCCCD contracted with InterVision to conduct a thorough assessment of its current datacenter and DR preparedness. InterVision delivered of a robust AWS environment supporting multi-site DR, pilot-light DR, and backup-restore DR architecture. This has allowed MCCCD to reach their business continuity and disaster recovery goals.
