The Issue at Hand

  • The Lathan Company’s aging infrastructure required replacing
  • Strengthen data protection to include data backup that could easily be recovered in case of cyber attack, data loss, a server crash, or even a natural disaster
  • Create a cybersecurity policy and response plan for different situations that may disrupt or compromise information systems

Evaluating Their Options

  • The Lathan Company management requested quotes to analyze needed IT upgrades and conduct on-prem versus cloud comparison
  • IT Expansion Requirements: 1 Server, 16 Cores, 3 Windows VMs w/ HA, 96GB RAM, 3TB SSD Storage with Backup
  • Management was disappointed with the cost for the public cloud solution
