Reduced on-premises and datacentre infrastructure expenses
With 32 servers running in Azure across 2 regions, Correvio eliminated its on-premises compute and private cloud infrastructure, with a monthly cost reduction from $ 16,000 to $ 11,000. Parts of the savings were achieved by reducing excess disk allocations resulting from a previous physical to virtual server migration.
With their servers now based on Azure, Correvio can scale up or down their Virtual Machines based on the needs and cycles in their business, including the ability to turn off servers which are only required for occasional access and adjust server resources to minimize operation costs.
Applications have been migrated to the Azure region closest to the majority of end-users, providing improved performance for users in Europe, with only slight degradation for Vancouver users, following decisions made during the design phase.
Workloads can be scaled up or down depending on performance requirements.
Enhanced Security & Compliance
With Azure DR, data availability has been ensured in order to enable business continuity and protect against data loss.
Network security was improved by utilization of Cisco vMX100 network appliance providing consistency with rest of the corporate network.
