Case Study – Application Development – Inner Range
Cloud-enabling existing applications with Microsoft Azure
Inner Range is an Australian security company supporting thousands of end useers with secure facilities and monitoring capabilities.
Inner Range engaged Azured to aid them in the modernisation and cloud enablement of their in-house developed application, which was being delivered out of their head office on ageing equipment.
When Cloud-enabling an organisation, we begin by first understanding where a customer is and then presenting what’s possible. This knowledge ultimately forms the basis of what will become our customers cloud roadmap and aids us in defining what is possible, likely and realistic to achieve for our customers.
Within Inner Range’s roadmap, key availability, performance and scalability requirements were revealed, which drove the development of a highly scalable Kubernetes and container driven environment, available across Australia and driven by Microsoft’s powerful Azure SQL services.
Azured created an environment that vastly enhanced availability, scalability and ongoing development through a combination of our architecture and our managed services offering; Cloud Right. We worked closely with Inner Range’s development and support team, explaining how they could best fit their environment within Azure’s predefined rulesets and configuration.
Ultimately, Azured forged a partnership with Inner Range that see’s us managing the day-to-day availability and health of their platform whilst we consult and work together to ever improve the performance, availability and commercial effectiveness of their core application service.
“There was a threat of power outages due to extreme temperature in Melbourne today, long story short there isn’t enough power generation for air con in the event of a power outage to cool the IT equipment. Gladly we did not have to worry about our critical alarm reporting systems or customers as none of the service operates on premise any more. This got me thinking about your presentation at Telstra way back when and led me to realise that we are now living the dream!”Seriously, your guys are awesome and our product has never been so stable and easy to maintain. A real credit to how professional and knowledgeable they are. Anyway just wanted to say thanks for their efforts and look forward to future project with them on a global scale!”
