ITonCloud moves Oapl to Total Private Cloud Environment to Solve Security and Performance Issues

Private cloud provider ITonCloud has migrated orthotic and prosthetic company, Oapl to its cloud environment to protect themselves against ongoing crypto virus attacks and to improve performance issues.

Oapl has a complex yet sophisticated environment where security, up time and speed are critical ingredients for their day to day operations. Coming from a hybrid environment using office 365, on-premise and hosted servers led to a number of Ransomware attacks and speed issues.

ITonCloud CEO Andrew Tucker said, “This is because for business owners, it’s virtually impossible to have the technical IT knowledge to be 100 per cent confident their business is fully protected. This is the reality when you are relying on an on-premise server IT environment.”

Oapl, like many healthcare organisations, have decided the move away from on-premise servers to total cloud environments as it’s the most economical and effective way to achieve their business needs. Oapl Operations Manager Kevin Johnson said, “We lost many days of trading because the business had been exposed to crypto viruses. No business can afford that, particularly when we have clients relying on us for medical services. We needed to find a more secure and reliable solution.”

“With ITonCloud, they monitor for suspicious activity with tools we didn’t have access to before which mitigates the risk of an attack so that damage to data is prevented.”

“We now have excellent backups, with hourly snapshots, so if any data is lost or compromised it can be quickly restored and back to ‘business as usual’. We now have a single secure gateway we login into which gives us access to everything we need to run the business and services our clients. In fact, now we can focus on our core business competencies not deal with IT issues,” said Mr Johnson.

Oapl have 26 of locations across Australia, so running on-premise servers from different locations with different versions of applications running simultaneously and paying for multiple licenses was a logistical nightmare.

Mr Tucker said, “The biggest concern healthcare businesses is managing sensitive client data they need to store and the number of different applications, like case management systems, and its various versions, the IT environment for these businesses can be complicated.”

“The idea of migrating all of that sensitive information and losing trading days in the migration is huge concern for most. ITonCloud works closely with our clients to meet the specific challenges they face and have developed a unique methodology that allows us to do the implementation and integration of these applications quickly and easily, and with no charge.”

“Our approach to the migration gives our clients absolute confidence and we have a 100 per cent migration success rate,” said Mr Tucker.

Mr Johnson said “The migration and integration from our previous vendor to ITonCloud has been the best and seamless process I have seen in my 25-year business history. This is testament of their excellent planning, execution and staff who know their job.”
