It’s important to be able to have backup of our AWS environment because we have a lot of configurations. And it’s important that we can manage our customer’s environments without touching their data.”

Modernizing Infrastructure to Grow with Business Demands

As a managed service provider, Informàtica Feu, SL (iFeu) must comply with Spain’s strict cloud, data, and security policies. The company’s customer base is primarily on-premises businesses that also desire the benefits of cloud, including scalability, speed, and flexibility. In an effort to grow with its customers’ needs, the company endeavored to provide a seamless cloud migration process without sacrificing compliance and security.

A large share of iFeu’s customers rely on VMware and, while drawn to cloud computing, remain skeptical of the required upfront investment. Asking customers to support a full-scale migration to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) would have been a larger commitment than they were prepared for.

The iFeu Cloud Team needed a central, enterprise-level backup and disaster recovery platform for AWS, along with the ability to orchestrate everything from a single console. It also had to be a multi-tenant solution that was extensible from the client’s own environment but didn’t touch their data.

An Automated Disaster Recovery System

iFeu Cloud found its ideal solution in AWS Marketplace. It chose the top-rated N2WS Backup & Recovery because of its robust backup and recovery features. It automates the backup and recovery of each type of instance and volume already employed by iFeu, including EC2 instances, Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volumes, and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). This also helps iFeu to securely manage over 100 AWS accounts from a single console. Jordi Pujol, a cloud architect at iFeu stated, “It’s important to be able to have backup of our AWS environment because we have a lot of configurations. And it’s important that we can manage our customers’ environments without touching their data.”

Compliance Costs Reduced 60%

The N2WS Disaster & Recovery multi-tenant solution brought almost immediate results to the iFeu Cloud team, including reducing customer compliance costs by 60 percent.

Another key benefit of N2WS adoption was unprecedented mobility in data access to iFeu’s customers. They now have 24x7 secure data access with near-zero recovery time objective (RTO) for all configurations including Amazon EBS volumes, EC2 instances, and virtual private cloud (VPC) configurations.

With N2WS in place, iFeu now provides reporting and self-service features to its customers across more than 100 AWS accounts. Ultimately, iFeu saved hundreds of hours in labor and management time without sacrificing security, allowing the company to maintain its dependability and customer trust.
