OneNeck moves Luck Stone from public to private cloud
The conversion adds AX on ReliaCloud to the mix of IT services OneNeck has been providing since 2011.
OneNeck IT Solutions, a leading provider of hosting and application management solutions for Dynamics AX, announced today Luck Stone Corporation contracted for conversion of their IT infrastructure. OneNeck is moving Luck Stone’s Microsoft Dynamics AX environment from public cloud onto OneNeck’s private hosted cloud known as ReliaCloud. OneNeck will continue providing Luck Stone with enterprise application, network, security and infrastructure management, along with database and operating system administration.
“During the last five years, OneNeck has proven they have the ability, expertise and experience to manage our Microsoft Dynamics AX environment,” said Donald Jones, VP of IT at Luck Stone. “We began noticing performance issues within our public cloud environment and realized we needed a more scalable, agile and secure solution. In talking with OneNeck about their Infrastructure as a Service solution, AX on ReliaCloud, we realized it could enhance our performance and security. At the same time, moving to ReliaCloud would allow us to take advantage of a more cost-effective solution. Adding ReliaCloud to the portfolio and moving to a private cloud environment just made sense.”

- Avoid unscheduled downtime and unplanned maintenance.
