Press Release: Cloud Supplementation for Smooth Transition to Remote Workforce
AUSTIN, Texas – March 15, 2020
With growing concerns over the Covid-19 virus, many businesses are moving to a remote workforce. This rapid shift in the way companies conduct business is causing problems, overloading VPNs and other infrastructure, ultimately causing expensive downtime due to critically strained systems. Internal IT departments are the most affected by this shift, as they scramble to connect newly home-bound workers to the data center.
For businesses to continue without interruption, a system needs to be in place to handle the increased load. One stable solution is to create an AWS Kubernetes cluster Direct Connected to a business’s internal networks, which can scale automatically as needs grow. Ideally such a system would be in place before a massive shift in demand and load. However, it is possible to integrate such a solution into existing architecture, preventing further interruption to business.
Austin native, Greenfield Guild CEO Nathan Eliot, calls this elegant solution an “emergency cloud supplementation for your business, due to the sudden shift in the way you do business.” It can ensure business continuity during catastrophic changes, as well as introducing a more scalable architecture, which can be leveraged for general system improvements once the crisis passes.
