The Challenge

Nevada Bankruptcy Attorneys had been using a basic office set up with desktop computers to store data.

Engagement Overview

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.

The Solution

Cloud303 leveraged Amazon WorkSpaces to replicate their physical office infrastructure. They started by deploying Microsoft Active Directory (AD) with EC2 instances acting as two domain controllers in two different availability zones for high availability. AD Connector was used to connect the AD to WorkSpaces.

Developing a golden image for this deployment was particularly challenging due to some uncommon software being used by the client, including two pieces of software called I Got Notices and Bankruptcy Pro. Cloud303 had to develop a creative way to move the local deployment to the cloud, with the canonical data set residing on a remote server, which would employees to share data no matter where they were in a way that would not result in conflicting data. Cloud303 used AWS funding obtained from the Well-Architected Review process to offset the final cost of the project to the client .
