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

INTRODUCTION

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.
