The Challenge
Our client designs, develops, and supports advanced communications solutions. They needed to migrate their legacy e-mail system with on premise data centers to a modern system using the Amazon Web Services™ (AWS) GovCloud™ region. The solution was required to be highly available, ITAR compliant, and with fully managed e-mail services to meet their specific business requirements.

The Solution
Our team worked with the customer for more than six months to migrate their self managed Lotus Notes™ email system from three on premise legacy data centers to a fully managed Microsoft Exchange™/SQL Server™ solution deployed on the (AWS) GovCloud region. Our solution included:

  • Configuration
  • Support
  • Migration
  • Microsoft Software licenses
  • Third-party tools
  • 24×7 US based ongoing support and maintenance

Our solution also used a per user monthly fee pricing model as well as adhered to the AWS best practices and recommended architecture guidelines and principles.

The Result
Our team’s solution resulted in an overall 25% cost savings with all Microsoft licensing costs on a consumption based flexible model. The systems delivered 99.9% availability and increased the level of platform security. Our team provided responsive expert support within 15 minutes as a fully managed Microsoft on AWS platform solution.
