Texas. The company has provided Texas retail agents with a variety of highly rated insurance
products since 1980. The company leverages leading industry-specific applications to process

Issue: On-premise infrastructure was aging and in need of increasing support. Like many other MGAs,
Vintage Underwriters was interested in improving the delivery and support of IT while reducing
the cost.

CloudMGA on AWS. Vintage Underwriters’ AWS environment leverages Amazon EC2, EBS, S3,
VPC, WorkDocs, WorkMail, WorkSpaces, and more to deliver a 100-percent cloud, 100-percent
managed IT environment.

Benefit(s): Vintage Underwriters cut its IT spend and is more agile, mobile, and disaster-ready than ever

With desktops, data, email, and business applications hosted by AWS, producers and business
admins are no longer restricted to the office; they can work elsewhere when life and weather
demand it. With SynchroNet managing and supporting their Amazon AWS footprint, Vintage
Underwriters reduces its costs without losing dedicated and competent support.
