The Vision and Challenge
Sierra was interested in utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a part of their backup storage solution. Their critical need required storing their main ERP backups offsite in the event of critical hardware failure or disaster, as there were no existing offsite backups.
This proof-of-concept included the following:
- AWS Account Creation: We created a new account in AWS for subscription of services and provided necessary hardware/network requirements to Sierra for the Storage Gateway.
- Storage Gateway: We worked with Sierra to deploy a Storage Gateway virtual appliance and mount the NFS shares on their systems.
- Storage/S3 Bucket Setup: Storage provisioning and IAM roles created.
- Data Migration/Initial Upload: We assisted with the initial upload of Sierra’s ERP data.
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 and leverage our Cloud Migration Lifecycle Assurance (CMLA) program.
