Municipality of Catania
To meet this need, the municipality has been contacted by SoftJam – a Microsoft Golden partner – to develop a flexible and lightweight solution. Azure was the obvious choice. In conjunction with SQL Server, they have released a variety of in-cloud services: Log management, Database mirroring, Windows virtual machines, and a witness SQL Server. All this is supported by an automatic recovery and a site-to-site VPN as standard for better security.
The overall result was a safer system with backup services running at a lower cost. The new hybrid approach also offers security against malfunctions, increasing the trust of the end customer. It has also been successful as a test scenario and now seems to be ready to be replicated on other public systems and services.
