Saving US$6 Million
Eliminating two datacenters and the costly recurring hardware upgrades, Capstone has already cut cuts significantly by moving from on-premises to the cloud. In addition, the company keeps software costs under control with a pay-as-you-go subscription model.
“One of our big objectives was to eliminate $3 million in capital costs over about three years, and to reduce our operating costs by approximately the same amount,” says Slattery. “At the same time, we wanted to improve our quality of service. With Azure, we’re confident that we’ll meet those goals.”
In moving Capstone's data to the cloud, the mining company could achieve security at a lower cost and achieve a level of redundancy that wasn't possible before. With data replicated multiple times in Azure, it's encrypted at movement and at rest. Rather than taking months and potentially millions of dollars to replicate infrastructure and recover data after a disaster, Capstone can recover their data at no cost.
The Capstone team is now able to focus on improving business processes and optimizing mining operations, rather than the costs and issues of traditional IT infrastructure and datacenters.
Partnering with a Strategic Cloud Partner
Softlanding planned and executed the migration seamlessly, allowing Capstone to continue operations during migration and ultimately meeting their goal of transforming their IT infrastructure from an operational liability into a competitive asset. As Microsoft IMPACT's "Partner of the Year" for Innovative Azure Solutions, Softlanding was able to showcase how Azure can be transformative for organizations.
