One privately owned investment management firm recently sought a solution that would enable them to maintain their robust and efficient systems while supporting performance needs. With a strong business case in place to migrate to AWS to reduce capex spend and enable innovation, the firm needed to be able to obtain the same level of resiliency and failover procedures while in the AWS
TDS was identified as a partner because of its expertise and the power of its TransitionManager platform to unify and streamline the AWS/CloudEndure toolchain.
The Results – Improved Efficiency, Reduced Risk
TDS worked with the customer and the AWS CloudEndure team to ensure DR functionality as a prerequisite for moving to the cloud. The firm required a fully automated failover architecture ensuring protection of their Tier 1 applications across AWS regions while achieving their required SLAs.
This automation created a framework which would enable them to seamlessly add servers to the failover automation workstream as they continue to migrate additional workloads to AWS.
With TransitionManager enabling the orchestration of CloudEndure, DR testing and failover operations were automated without affecting primary systems, which drastically reduced the cost, operational impact, and staffing requirements typically required in DR efforts.
