Case Study

How TBI with phoenixNAP improved efficiency and brought unparalleled security to Ascent Aerospace.

CHALLENGE

Customer’s greatest challenge was overcoming poor, delayed service & support from their cloud infrastructure provider. Lengthy response times to open service tickets were proving unacceptable and problematic. The resulting delays to their day-to-day operations were so significant throughout their multi-site footprint that it was necessary to seek a more reliable cloud provider.

SOLUTION

The customer was searching for an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider that could also deliver strong support for a powerful new turn-key solution that met industry regulations and security demands. DSC (Data Security Cloud) was the perfect solution that leveraged phoenixNAP’s powerful cloud infrastructure that could also manage backups, meet security demands, and enable monitoring and visibility to all connected systems. It is designed to be “the world’s most secure platform”, to protect sensitive, mission-critical data and establish an “always-on” cloud infrastructure environment for Ascent’s production, QA, and Dev operations. phoenixNAP’ DSC could dedicate resources to their virtual cloud environment by setting it apart from other workloads, ensuring a fully private cloud computing environment. This way, phoenixNAP enabled 24/7/365 uptime for day-to-day critical operations. In addition to our DSC platform, Ascent Aerospace took advantage of phoenixNAP’s Cloud Back-up with Veeam.

BENEFITS
