About the client

Iron Mountain is a data and records management company providing services to 95% of Fortune 1,000 companies.

Key challenges

Freshbyte was approached by Iron Mountain to help with an infrastructure migration project. The project was high risk because it involved 200+ live clients with billions of documents that needed to be migrated to a completely different data center with minimal downtime.

Our approach

Freshbyte provided a very experienced, cross functional team of developers, with the right mix of technical skills to deliver this complex project. It required both server administration skills and programming experience with Microsoft technologies. The migration was done in stages, each project being prepared, tested and implemented with an Agile approach.
