Noosa Shire Council – Successful transition improves agility

Noosa Shire Council de-amalgamated from the Sunshine Coast Council in 2014. At the beginning, they set up Software as a Service and Infrastructure as a Service with minimal on-premises infrastructure. The council’s growth over the subsequent years began to put real pressure on their systems and raise serious concerns about backup and disaster recovery (both digital and physical).

Microsoft and Codify worked closely with the Council to help them understand the Azure fundamentals and deliver detailed backup and DR planning with migration support for their on-premises/AWS-based workloads.

The Microsoft FastTrack program introduced the mechanics of Azure and helped the Council establish their billing and procurement model ahead of Codify’s engagement.
