Cloud Migration, Hosting, & Optimization

On-Premise Performance with In-Cloud Convenience

Our cloud migration services can efficiently move your business into the cloud in just a few short weeks. To help minimize disruptions or downtime, we spend the time to work on performance tuning the speed of the virtual machines with your IT infrastructure before deploying your applications to the cloud allowing for a fast and efficient transition. As many other cloud providers use public, hybrid, or multi-tenant cloud services, we use Azure’s private cloud services which gives us the ability to customize the virtual machines to your company’s specific financial applications and network for better performance and more security. Once online, we bring years of application experience in Advent APX, Axys, and Moxy to optimize your applications for on-premise performance with in-the-cloud convenience.

Case Study

Cloud Migration for Financial Applications
Improve performance, availability, and security while maintaining a good user experience

THE CHALLENGE

A financial advisory firm wanted to migrate their applications to the cloud and improve their on-premise performance and reliability while keeping their Active Directory integration to enhance the speed of their reporting and daily reconciliation & processing.

They also wanted a way to restore their environment in-case of catastrophic failure. 

They interviewed a long list of possible solution providers but were discouraged when most of them failed to show that they would be able to deliver the custom solution required, involving the security, compliance, and fine-tuning they wanted. 

But after a careful evaluation process, they selected MD Solutions for its deep industry experience and full flexibility to adapt technologies to suit specific customer needs.

THE SOLUTION

Our original assessment showed opportunity for improvement in Disaster Recovery, High Availability, System Performance, and Security. 

Using this as a guide, we built them an environment similar to the diagram below to help mitigate these pain points and issues. 

After their cloud migration was complete, they were able to see a 4:1 improvement in the speed of running reports. This was also supported by a trust between their domain and our cloud environment to enable them to keep using their on-premise credentials, eliminating the need for users to remember multiple passwords. 

Once implemented, we ran a second assessment and showed improved scores across all four key areas. 

Today, the customer continues to enjoy a fast, stable, reliable, optimized network solution with our team continuously monitoring for uninterrupted business operation.
