While developing innovative SaaS applications for Quick Service Restaurants (QSR), the client faced massive challenges with co-located data center, where the production workloads were hosted. The client’s web server would go through periods of high downtime resulting from unplanned or unexpected events. The second major concern was an unreliable DNS server which would redirect unresolvable names to searched websites. Their web server was unstable resulting in an inability to map the path component of a URL. Adding to their worries was an unreliable and extremely slow internet connection that would frequently just flat and not load anything.
The client was fervently looking to partner with an Azure Consulting team to build a highly reliable and scalable IaaS solution with firewall subnets, virtual networks, geo-redundant triple copies storage accounts and virtual machines with about 99.95% uptime SLA. They wanted a reliable and cost-effective solution to automatically protect their on-premise IT Infrastructure in the case of any disaster or outage.
