For over 40 years they have been a trusted partner for thousands of customers in more than 70 countries. Today, Prima Power helps their customers fully capture the experience of Industry 4.0 and unleash the business potential of digital manufacturing.
To meet the future digitalization needs, Prima Power needed a next generation cloud solution that would guarantee the digital expansion, enable truly global infrastructure management, improve performance, reduce costs, and eventually provide better customer experience. Global production, large scale computing, storages, several application services, IoT and cross-networking all set a challenging migration environment. All services had to run on production during the renewal.
Futuriot optimized all key cloud products for Prima Power. The solution required deep expertise and experience in several areas: architecture, design, networking, virtual machines, virtual networks, databases and storages, application services, monitoring, and scripting. Every change and the whole migration process were verified in a controlled sandbox environment to guarantee smooth transition, quality and risk management. Thanks to Futuriot’s experienced Azure team, Prima Power cloud environment is now ready to meet the needs for Industry 4.0.
Futuriot helped Prima Power to double the storage and computing performance and reduce cloud operating costs. The goals for the increased reliability and better infrastructure management were also met. As a result, Prima Power has now a modern and future-proof cloud infrastructure.
