Dodd Frank, HIPAA, SOX, GLB compliance and other regulations are creating tremendous pressure for many industries. Our professionals come in, assess the situation from an Information Technology perspective and create a comprehensive plan needed to achieve this level of compliance. We evaluate your current infrastructure, and compare it to the design goals that you provide. We look at the infrastructure for weaknesses in terms of resilience, cyber-security, single points of failure, replication, documentation, and many other control points. We then highlight the weaknesses of the system and suggest measures to remediate them. This may involve a redesign involving virtualization or strategy for migration to the cloud. We then plan a step by step migration strategy with a failback plan to cover all possibilities.Auditing of access, change permissions, proper documentation, security architecture, and viable Business Continuity / DR plans including remote replication are addressed as part of the requirements as is a written information security plan.
We put in the effort to understand the client’s needs and requirements and pin point the main issues. We then provide custom solutions to the problems using state of the art technology, Business Continuity software, application failover, hot/warm sites, and SAN hardware and software.For example the client’s needs for Business Continuity / Disaster Tolerance and remote data replication may be the goal, and software / hardware replication or a combination using Continuous Access and Data Mirroring may be the recommended solution.
It is no longer sufficient to say that only large companies need to worry about cyber security or a data breach. Cyber risk is becoming more severe and everyone is at risk. On October 23, 2015, a federal magistrate judge in California held that individual corporate directors may be found liable under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank).
The cloud is here, and given the advantages of working with any device from anywhere 24 x 7 x 365 it is no surprise that there is a massive industry shift to take advantage of this new and amazing technology. However, not many professionals take the time to evaluate how this shift will work to truly benefit the client. The Cloud may or may not be a viable option for all applications. For example, there may be confidential data that the client may want retained on premises, or there may be client server applications that are proprietary that may not support migration to the cloud. In such cases, a hybrid approach migrating email to the cloud, but leaving non supporting applications on premises may be the optimal solution. Security is another issue that is of utmost concern.
The solution proposed is implemented and the problems resolved. At this stage we complete the steps involved with the implementation such as installation and configuration of necessary software applications to ensure secure access, audit logging, data retention and access, as well as point to point security. Following this, other technologies such as Data Mirroring and or hardware replication are configured and scripted to automate snapshots and clone operations for data integrity and recovery. Remote replication of data is configured and normally implemented unless the data is in the cloud already. A back out plan is critical in the event of issues. Migration steps are carefully designed in a manner that the original configuration can be restored in the event of a problem. Everything is thoroughly tested including failover/failback at this stage. We can help in migrating your on-premises infrastructure to Microsoft Azure platform. Be it virtual machines, SQL databases, web sites, or complex applications. We help in envisioning, planning, designing and migrating the workloads to the cloud. This may involve re-architecting or tweaking the existing applications to be moved to the cloud ensuring minimum disruption to the services. Applications can be complex with various components and integrations with third-parties and other systems and resources. However, it is not uncommon for an application to also make use of services exposed by partner organizations, or services and components that reside inside the corporate network which, for a variety of reasons, cannot be migrated to the cloud. For such scenarios, we can help in building hybrid applications with some components on Azure and some components on premise.
Virtualization is possible at a server hardware/software host level, storage level, and fabric level. Virtualization is an approach to IT that pools and shares resources so utilization is optimized and supply automatically meets demand. Virtualization is key on the journey to becoming a more Adaptive Enterprise.Virtualization can change the economics of IT from desktop to datacenter – much like just-in-time capabilities drove dramatic changes in the manufacturing industry. It's the convergence of business need and technological innovation that can create real, new business value. VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V are the unequivocal leaders in this area. Our engineers are proficient and certified with both infrastructure platforms.

High Performance, High Capability, High Availability Solutions
Most organizations explore virtualization for one of the following reasons:
- Server consolidation. By consolidating multiple server instances on one set of hardware, efficiency is gained by more fully using the hardware.
- Application migration. Some applications do not run on newer server operating systems, creating a need for the ability to host virtual instances of legacy operating systems to run these applications.
- Increase IT agility. Provides the ability to rapidly add and move servers to respond to changing business needs.
- Software development. By saving and restoring a set of template virtual hard disks (VHDs), developers can rapidly cycle through test scenarios during software development processes.
