Dole Food needed a global SharePoint infrastructure that met tough goals for availability, performance, scalability, and price. Dole also needed a highly scalable and resilient hosting infrastructure for its public web presence. By deploying both on AWS, Dole Food met its goals while avoiding capital expenditures and operational costs. We trace the project’s timeline, discussing how those goals were met and sharing lessons learned. We also talk about how we extended Dole Food’s corporate Active Directory into the AWS cloud.
