mindSHIFT, a Ricoh company, put together the winning plan and price structure to significantly upgrade ProctorU's technology infrastructure. The key was setting up and connecting four local domain controllers at separate sites and establishing and integrating a fifth AWS cloud-based domain controller to meet backup and security requirements. Tied to each other through VPN connections, the controllers allow ProctorU to replicate active directory work groups for centralized workstation management and redundancy.
Roaming profiles, which store information on the server rather than the device, was also implemented to give employees quick and secure access to the information they need to work. In addition, mindSHIFT upgraded workstations to a modern, sustainable Windows® 10 platform and created a unified image that ProctorU now uses to centrally update workstations, apply applications and patches and set up new workstations at all of their locations.
