Relieve Pressure on IT with Managed Cloud Infrastructure

Modern Transportation is an industry leader in bulk material logistics and trucking with two dozen terminals spanning the Mid-Atlantic, South, Midwest, and the Great Plains. The company was founded in 1987 in Butler, PA and has grown organically through strong customer relationships and the consistent development of partnership opportunities in a variety of industries. Modern employs approximately 300 trucking professionals and about 80 non-trucking employees.

The Scenario

From the cabs of its big rigs to its back-office operations, Modern’s business is highly reliant on technology to ensure that customer demands are met. As a 24×7×365 business with trucks spread across lanes in 30 states, the continuous availability of Modern’s IT infrastructure is of utmost importance.

The Challenge

Migrating its critical on-premises workloads to a fully managed VMware-based cloud such as EEC enabled Modern Transportation to walk away from an aging, on-premises infrastructure stack and avoid the large capital investment that a hardware refresh would require.

The Solution

Modern Transportation leverages Expedient’s extensive solution suite and distributed data center footprint to operate a highly redundant and efficient hybrid IT architecture. In addition to using EEC for cloud-based infrastructure, the company continues to use Expedient colocation to host a few of its remaining physical servers and takes advantage of several managed services including cloud data protection, cloud file storage, dedicated firewall management and server management and monitoring.
