AmCoBi is a software company that provides services to utility companies and multifamily property owners and managers. Its products cater to a range of utility-related services - from billing (AmCoBi) to collecting and analyzing data from water systems (Aquahawk) and electrical or gas systems (Utility Hawk) for municipalities and utility businesses. Its utility customers are then able to use the analyzed data to make recommendations on how to maximize the performance of their clients’ systems.
Before working with Cloud303, AmCoBi’s platform was running on Rackspace - which proved to be outdated and too expensive. Cloud303 migrated AmCoBi to AWS, which in return, enhanced its security, and modernized its infrastructure while decreasing the cost of maintaining its services.
When AmCoBi approached Cloud303, its platform was running in Rackspace on outdated hardware and software. The company was having difficulty modernizing its infrastructure using the tools that Rackspace provided. Additionally, Rackspace’s cost of services and maintenance was quickly becoming repulsively high.
AmCoBi’s new chief technology officer had just recently inherited the platform from his predecessor and he was having trouble sorting through the infrastructure, leaving him in the lurch. AmCobi was certain that it wanted the plugs pulled on its lackluster legacy infrastructure - as too much money was being spent on a system that was failing to meet its security and business needs.
Cloud303's engagements follow a streamlined five-phase lifecycle: Requirements, Design, Implementation, Testing, and Maintenance. Initially, a comprehensive assessment is conducted through a Well-Architected Review to identify client needs. This is followed by a scoping call to fine-tune the architectural design, upon which a Statement of Work (SoW) is agreed and signed.
The implementation phase kicks in next, closely adhering to the approved designs. Rigorous testing ensures that all components meet the client's specifications and industry standards. Finally, clients have the option to either manage the deployed solutions themselves or to enroll in Cloud303's Managed Services for ongoing maintenance, an option many choose due to their high satisfaction with the services provided.
Cloud303 - an AWS Premier Consulting Partner - worked with AmCoBi to comb through the company’s existing infrastructure and help organize and simplify the workload. Cloud303 went through the Well-Architected Review process with AmCoBi in order to enhance its security, increase efficiency, and make them potentially more appealing to clients.
Cloud303 migrated AmCoBi to AWS from Rackspace, updating their platform to more modern technologies and improving the ease of management. At the time, Network Load Balancers had not yet been released, so custom servers were deployed and configured for this purpose. Cloud303 also provided a roadmap for AmCoBi, suggesting future project ideas for continuous improvement over time.
Our work with AmCoBi was multi-faceted, involving deep analysis, modernization, and even custom solutions where necessary. The successful migration from Rackspace to AWS encapsulates Cloud303's commitment to providing scalable, secure, and cost-effective solutions.
As a result of the migration to AWS, AmCoBi was able to significantly lower its cloud computing costs. Additionally, thanks to Cloud303’s efforts, AmCoBi’s platform became more secure and easier to maintain, despite its complexity and its small engineering team. Moreover, the success from the initial migration has allowed Cloud303 and AmCoBi’s relationship to blossom into continued services including Cloud303’s resale organization and additional consulting projects, including the deployment of a custom network.
