PreCise MRM, which collects fleet data for government organizations, was using on-premises servers to run their application and was looking to modernize their business before a big office move. Cloud303 was able to migrate both of their workloads onto AWS, allowing them to centralize their data and streamline their business.
PreCise MRM was at a critical juncture: their aging hardware was beginning to show its limitations, and a co-location lease nearing its expiration date only added to the urgency. Compounded by a major office relocation on the horizon, the company realized the need for a modern, flexible, and scalable solution. Migrating to AWS was seen as an ideal path, but transferring both of their primary products—MyFleet and LiGO—posed logistical and technical challenges.
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, in collaboration with PreciseMRM, meticulously migrated and modernized PreciseMRM's fleet management software, emphasizing the use of Microsoft and Windows technologies on the AWS cloud.
Seamless Migration with Microsoft Technologies
Cloud303 leveraged Microsoft workloads, such as Microsoft SQL Server (MSSQL), to ensure a seamless migration of PreciseMRM's on-premises infrastructure to AWS. Cloud303 employed CloudEndure to replicate PreciseMRM's data to the AWS cloud, safeguarding data integrity and allowing for quick recovery in case of physical incidents. By utilizing the robustness of AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances, Cloud303 fine-tuned the infrastructure to meet PreciseMRM's requirements, emphasizing the compatibility and performance of Windows Server instances.
Secure Connectivity with AWS Site-to-Site VPN
To establish a secure connection between PreciseMRM's on-premises location and the AWS cloud, Cloud303 worked closely with Verizon to implement an AWS Site-to-Site VPN. This VPN connection, built with robust networking capabilities, ensured secure and reliable communication, enabling PreciseMRM to seamlessly access their cloud resources and maintain data privacy.
Efficient Migration with Minimal Downtime
Cloud303 orchestrated the migration process with precision and expertise, minimizing disruption to PreciseMRM's operations. They migrated the MyFleet software to AWS within five hours, carefully managing the process to ensure minimal downtime and a smooth transition. By drawing from the insights gained during the initial migration, Cloud303 further optimized their approach, reducing the migration time for LiGO to just two hours. This efficient migration showcased the effectiveness of Microsoft workloads on AWS in streamlining the process.
Modernization with Enhanced Microsoft Integration
As part of the solution, Cloud303 proactively implemented updates and enhancements to align PreciseMRM's business processes with their evolving needs. They leveraged Microsoft technologies and best practices to ensure that all systems were integrated seamlessly, enabling the unified platform for MyFleet and LiGO. This emphasis on Microsoft integration facilitated streamlined data organization, improved collaboration, and enhanced business operations.
By prioritizing the use of Microsoft and Windows technologies throughout the migration and modernization process, Cloud303 successfully transformed PreciseMRM's fleet management software, delivering the benefits of enhanced compatibility, security, and seamless integration on the AWS cloud.
This wasn't just a migration; it was a transformative endeavor. We weren't merely moving data; we were redefining how PreCise MRM operates and scales. The challenge was as much about strategy and planning as it was about technical execution.
The transformation brought about by Cloud303's solution empowered PreciseMRM in multiple ways, delivering tangible benefits and quantifiable success metrics.
By migrating to AWS, PreciseMRM successfully modernized their operations while eliminating the constraints of long-term leases and physical infrastructure. This flexibility enabled PreciseMRM to swiftly adapt to changing business needs and seamlessly transition to their new office space.
Centralized Data Access
The move to AWS allowed PreciseMRM to centralize their data, ensuring easy accessibility from anywhere. This streamlined their operations, enhancing productivity and enabling PreciseMRM to gain valuable insights from their fleet data. As a result, PreciseMRM experienced a 40% reduction in data retrieval time, accelerating decision-making processes.
Efficiency and Collaboration
The consolidation of MyFleet and LiGO onto a single platform simplified data organization and improved business efficiency. PreciseMRM realized a 20% reduction in administrative overhead as duplicate processes were eliminated, promoting collaboration and enabling teams to work more cohesively.
Scalability and Cost Efficiency
With AWS, PreciseMRM gained the ability to scale their resources on-demand, optimizing their fleet operations. During the off-peak season, PreciseMRM achieved a 25% reduction in infrastructure costs, enabling them to allocate resources efficiently and improve profitability.
The successful adoption of Microsoft workloads on AWS, orchestrated by Cloud303, brought PreciseMRM a modernized and streamlined fleet management solution.
