Challenge

Dairy Australia are a non-profit, industry body that aim to assist Australian farmers in building a sustainable and profitable dairy industry. They wanted to ensure that they were set up for a sustainable future through modernising their datacentre and a secure, scalable and resilient IT environment.

Solution

Logicalis’ unique Azure proposition and robust relationship with Dairy, meant that Logicalis was awarded as partner of choice to deliver the cloud platform. Logicalis deployed a fully-fledged managed service environment for Dairy, built on Azure. Using Production Ready Cloud, Logicalis was able to investigating and understand customer need working closely with Dairy through design workshops, detailed design framework and finally
into implementation and handover. As a result Dairy Australia no longer have any onpremise workloads. The majority of virtual machines are in Azure, with a small portion hosted by Logicalis in their private cloud and all email has been moved to the Office 365 cloud.
