Client Case:

A startup company with 20-25 employees out of the Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) had free Microsoft Azure cloud compute unexpectedly expire. The client didn’t anticipate the unforeseen additional expenses incurred on the first invoice from Microsoft.


Tier4 listened to the client’s concerns including requirements for a cloud provider with quick compute, Disaster Recovery (DR), and a High Availability (HA) component at a low cost. Additionally, the startup asked Tier4 to provide solutions to upgrade analog phones and wireless internet in their office.


  1. The client incurred 60% savings with the new selected cloud provider selection
  2. The solution included Voice Over IP (VoIP) and internet circuit saving 50%
  3. Tier4 worked with the provider to deliver the solution in 10 days
