Hosting your application within an Infrastructure as a Service provider grants you the operational agility to scale your infrastructure very quickly, but your application needs to scale with your infrastructure.
Here are five worst-case pitfalls to avoid in your disaster recovery plan, so you can ensure a smooth and effective recovery of your most crucial data and IT systems.
Episode 38: Comparing Cloud Platforms You know migrating to the cloud is imminent, but how are you choosing which cloud? Our guest on this episode, Kevin Barker, InterVision’s Senior Technical
The California Department of Technology (CDT), committed to partnering with state, local government and educational organizations, needed to move assets to a cloud environment to better accommodate their service to these entities. With virtually all state government agencies and local government entities moving some or most of their IT infrastructure to the cloud, CDT released a Vendor Hosted Subscription Service (VHSS) contract, which selected InterVision. Since engaging with CDT, InterVision has configured a centralized account utilizing AWS Organizations to allow each Agency deployment to be implemented, modified, tracked and billed under the master account. InterVision was also asked to implement different cloud storage scenarios for the CDT team to allow them easy access to a working development environment as it hopes to play a role in supporting its variety of VHSS clients.
Database scaling ranks at the top of the list of most common problems software architects are challenged with.
A SOC 2 report functions as a written form of assurance that the vendor is protecting their data. This is particularly useful to companies that are assessing potential cloud providers, since reading the report gives them transparency for what to expect of the provider.
A Virtual Datacenter is a pool of cloud infrastructure resources designed specifically for enterprise business needs. Those resources include compute, memory, storage and bandwidth.
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.
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.
