13 Oct Case Study – K2M – Critical Business Services and Fast-tracks to Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure
Headquartered in Leesburg, Virginia, K2M is a global leader of complex spine and minimally invasive solutions used by spine surgeons to treat some of the most complex spinal pathologies.
K2M had struggled for several years with an unreliable on-premises virtual infrastructure. Lacking in best practices and a vision for continuous improvement, K2M recognized that something had to be done to introduce improvements and produce beneficial changes. They were also interested in the benefits and cost-savings of the cloud.
K2M approached Neovera to migrate its infrastructure to a world-class Equinix data center leveraging Neovera provided network, server, storage and backup infrastructure. To add further redundancy to K2M’s hybrid infrastructure, Neovera migrated K2M’s legacy applications, including financial reporting, CRM, and file servers, to the Equinix data center – a significant operational expense saving.
Following the successful migration, two years later, seeking greater continuity of operations and regulatory compliance, K2M sought to improve the availability of business email user authentication services, and Neovera helped migrate K2M to a Microsoft Azure-integrated Active Directory and ADFS solution for Microsoft Office 365.
With this solution, K2M enjoys direct connectivity of Office 365 to their Active Directory that provides a combination of more predictable performance and improved reliability, as well as enhanced data privacy.
BOTTOM LINE RESULTS
Thanks to Neovera, K2M no longer has to worry about maintaining and supporting business-critical systems and infrastructure. With Neovera’s turnkey hybrid cloud services, K2M experienced a seamless transition to a hybrid environment for its priority applications and productivity tools. The result is an optimized, fully-redundant solution backed by 24×7 monitoring, management, and Neovera support.
