Business Challenge 

Our new customer needed to prove to their prospective client, a Fortune 500 Top 10 company, that they were operating within a fully redundant and geographically resilient Azure cloud infrastructure for a mission critical web application. The previous consultant that our client engaged was not able to prove an adequately designed solution in time, and a target go live date was just two weeks away when we were approached.

How we helped

The Azure infrastructure was successfully built out using dual FortiGates in an active/active HA configuration with virtual server load balancing. A DR solution was also implemented using Azure’s ASR (Azure Site Recovery) for region-to-region failover and VNET peering.

Results

Akins IT was able to successfully create a fully resilient, DR environment in Azure for the web application servers, and was able to prove that the solution worked by stress testing the solution and proving the system dependability.  This helped our new customer win the contract with the Fortune 500 Top 10 client which more than doubled their revenues and transformed their business overnight.
