Cloud Data Migration for Backups at the U.S. Department of State


As on-premises storage solutions approached end of life and presented costly implications for capacity constraints and data management in an increasingly cloud-focused hybrid environment, the U.S. Department of State (DOS) required a solution for scalable data protection and backup retention of mission-critical data. As part of a broader IT support contract, DOS engaged Improvix Technologies, an IT integrator and services provider, to implement a cost-effective and unified solution with strong security and robust elasticity across a broad portfolio of applications.


approximate reduction in labor time spent administering backup and storage infrastructure


relative cost savings from blob storage over on-prem equipment maintenance and support

data protected and migrated from on-premises storage to scalable cloud services


continued capability, backup operations, and data access during migration activities



Standardize backup and retention mechanisms across different platforms, applications, data types, etc.


Adapt to dynamic requirements and regulations for data collection and retention in a scalable manner


Apply strong security controls for data protection in a FedRAMP-authorized cloud environment


Need to utilize existing investments in platforms and tools for a modernized approach


Improvix designed and implemented a scalable, multi-tiered storage architecture in the cloud, supporting data from multiple secure environments for cost-efficient retention. Further, Improvix optimized existing backup software investments to migrate all data to the cloud and decommission legacy hardware with no service disruption.
