The second part of the solution involved shifting the company’s telephony operations to the cloud. By utilizing a hybrid cloud solution featuring Azure site recovery services for disaster recovery and Amazon Web Services (AWS) for long-term backup storage, the company reduced their storage infrastructure costs from $1.6 million to $200,000 annually. To get to their cloud, the company turned to FiberLight’s Cloud Connect for a low latency, secure and private connection to their public clouds. Cloud Connect enabled the company to experience greater peace of mind with more secure operations while opening up opportunities for new international clients that can leverage AWS servers throughout the world.
