The Client is a Health and Wellness giant, that manufactures, markets, and distributes FMCG products such as tissue products, skin-friendly baby and adult diapers, and 100% natural beverages. Headquartered in Jordan, the customer caters to consumers in over 75 countries across the globe.
The Client was envisioning a long-term, modern IT strategy to connect the dots between its cloud infrastructure and devices at the user level. Multiple user-level desktop computers needed to be refreshed, and they were loaded with business applications requiring machine-level access. This stretched the bandwidth of the IT administrative staff and created a lot of dependency on manual maintenance of security patches and antivirus updates. Additionally, the data was stored natively on the machines, which posed a high risk around recovery and a challenge for centralized control.
When deciding on its solution infrastructure, the customer required a VDI base setup on Azure, where the end-users will be accessing these VDI machines from inside and outside the on-premise location from Windows end-user machines.
Kryptos thoroughly assessed the environment and planned the phase of implementation sequentially accounting for the dependencies.
Kryptos team initiated the migration of about 50+ server workloads including all the client applications into the Azure platform. The VDI setup on Azure was deployed with high availability, MPLS connectivity to the primary data center of the customer with increased security. Our experts helped to increase seamless access to core and intranet applications from Azure.
Kryptos’ solution setup comprised of various Azure resources, like Virtual machines, Image pool, Directory services, Network load balancing, Azure Blob Storage, ExpressRoute gateway, Multifactor authentication (MFA) services, FXLogix, Azure Active Directory, and Azure Resource manager services.
