 Cloud to On-Prem Migration

We saved our client $2.8 million over a 5 year period.


Gain a Tech CFO
 

Too often there is a disconnect between your engineering team & CFO.  We bridge that gap.  It is initially believed that the monthly cost for Cloud hosting is the ongoing monthly fee.  However, as data builds, additional servers & users are added...the costs could double or triple in 5 years.

In our case study below, your will understand our process & approach to technology, & how we keep costs down for our clients.


 

 

An inSync Case Study

Cloud to On-Premise Migration

How we helped our client

Our client's CFO brought us in & asked whether spending $576,000 per year on Cloud servers for 50 employees within one office was reasonable.  And the answer was no, it was not reasonable.

Their staff

Their 6 member internal IT team migrated 51 servers to 4 different Cloud providers.  And this migration was undocumented. 

Besides the 6 internal staff members, there was also a consultant billing 40 hours/week.  They were only supporting 50 employees in one location.  Their IT team was laid off & the consultant's services were terminated.

 

Their monthly Cloud hosting fees were over $48,000/month & it was brought down to $0.00 with our on-prem solution.

We proposed a Cloud to on-prem migration onto a 2 server cluster solution.  The hardware & software investment included the cluster, NAS drive, UPS...cost $103,000 & had a useful life of 5+ years.  So far, with our on-premise solution, they have never experienced any downtime.

  • Documented their past network infrastructure including their  51 virtual servers in different Cloud facilities;

  • Identified their custom & off-the-shelf software applications, file servers...;

  • Created a proposal for the hardware & software required for the on-premise cluster solution;

  • Created a migration plan to migrate 50 of their 51 virtual servers from the Cloud to the on-premise solution;

  • Audited their Rackspace environment hosting their international website, & migrated their website from Rackspace to AWS - gained redundancy & resulted in a $5,350/month cost reduction;

  • For a disaster recovery/business continuity solution, we are replicating their servers to a Cloud-based solution for $4,000/year;

  • Their servers are being monitored 24/7/365 with a cloud-based system for $60/month;

  • The 50 virtual machines are being monitored with a Linux based system that cost $1,000 - a one time fee - to configure the solution.

And we documented everything.
