The story of Bushmans’ Inc. is a story of twentieth-century, rural America—four generations tilling and replenishing the soils, weathering both markets and nature, and expanding from regional farmers to become a leading grower, packager and marketer of potatoes nationwide.

Cloud 9 was engaged in order to meet the following goals:

  • Migrate the resources and business processes from on-prem servers to Azure
  • Install and migrate the COTS Famous application and database from on-prem to Azure
  • Bushmans’ was operating and managing an aging hardware platform
  • Bushmans’ wanted a more cost-efficient way to upgrade their server footprint without having to procure physical servers

In order to achieve the above goals for Bushmans’, Cloud 9 architected a solution that would:

  • Deploy the Azure Infrastructure
  • Setup Site to Site VPN from on-prem network to Azure network
  • Migrate the database of the COTS Famous Application from on-prem to an Azure Virtual Machine
  • Migrate their large company-wide file share from an on-prem location to an Azure location
  • Develop, test, and implement the process.
