Edward C. Levy Gets Out of Data Center Management

Edward C. Levy produces lightweight aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, agricultural products, and more. They provide services that include construction materials, road building, flame cutting and treatment, steel mill services, logistics, and laboratory testing.


Edward C. Levy’s Pivot to the Cloud

To improve focus on core operations, company leadership decided to start the move out of the data center management business and migrate its back-office applications to the cloud as their initial step.

Operating under a general cloud transformation vision, Edward C. Levy initiated a project to move its non-production back-office applications to the cloud.

Through discussion, Centroid determined that Oracle Cloud Infrastructure was the quickest. Not only would the OCI provide an easy, nearly instantaneous “push-button” set up, it would also provide secure flexibility in the long-term. To speed up the project even more, Centroid suggested that Levy implement DRaaS in OCI.

“Edward C. Levy was considering setting up an on-premises model, but we knew that model was not modern and they needed to pivot to the cloud,” said Ajay Arora, Managing Partner at Centroid. “After architecting their Oracle Cloud business continuity solution, we were able to push a button and spin up their environments quickly. That eliminated months of time off the project.”

The nitty-gritty

Oracle Products

  • Java Cloud Service
  • Oracle Compute
  • Oracle Object and Block Storage
  • Oracle Analytics Cloud Service


Fast Installation Provides Long-Term Results

It took only weeks for Centroid to have the project near completion, including comprehensive testing and building a new cloud architecture. Not only does the system work perfectly, the fast timeline and effective solution has saved Levy 30% over the cost of traditional, on-premises disaster recovery.

Plus, the cloud-based solution enables Levy to eliminate the hassle of buying and managing on-premises licenses and infrastructure, which will save them from extra time and costs going forward.


“Centroid provided full, turn-key services, from cloud design and build-out to technology deployment, failover testing, cut-over activities, and managed services to ensure Edward C. Levy had exactly what they needed – fast. The incredible success and cost-savings of this project have led Edward C. Levy to scope and plan other cloud solutions with Centroid.”
