NEBCO, Inc., is a fourth-generation Nebraska-based organization made up of 25 entities with business interest in such things as concrete production, mining, heavy construction, bonding real estate and recreation.
In 2016, NEBCO’s IT leader recognized the need for a formal security program to ensure the integrity and availability of their data and systems. In addition, NEBCO’s legacy data center would soon require significant investment to replace aging equipment.
With help from Sirius, NEBCO developed a solid foundation for—and implemented ongoing processes to ensure—a strong security program. And in 2018, Sirius helped NEBCO evaluate alternatives to updating its aging data center, including converged on-premises cloud options. Ultimately NEBCO selected a secure hybrid cloud solution based on VMware Cloud (VMC) on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The solution allowed the organization to seamlessly migrate and extend its environment to the AWS cloud, while continuing NEBCO’s investment in VMware virtualization infrastructure. The move to the public cloud also freed up NEBCO’s technical resources from routine tasks, allowing them to focus on line-of-business applications while reducing overall cost of ownership.
NEBCO Chief Information Officer Shawn Paskevic had this to say about Sirius: “The key to success with both projects was the partnership we have with Sirius and the expertise Sirius brings to the table. These were critical to our security journey and our migration to the public cloud.”
