A long and proven relationship helped the company select SoftwareONE to manage its cloud migration.
The migration project started with SoftwareONE’s careful analysis of the existing datacenter and Cloud VMware infrastructure. The second phase defined the CloudBuild, where the company's cloud infrastructure foundation was established, creating the cloud plan, policies, and an Azure configuration to comply with its business objectives. The CloudMigrate phase executed the Azure cloud transition, including deploying migration tools and resources, and a rolling migration to accommodate differing requirements across systems and applications.
An additional phase followed the completed migration to address the company’s Disaster Recovery (DR) objectives. SoftwareONE implemented a detailed recovery plan and put Azure Site Recovery in place.
Knowledge transfer has been integral to the completion of SoftwareONE’s cloud engagement to facilitate the manufacturer’s transition to its new IT environment. So, a final workshop transfer session provided the local IT team with details on the new infrastructure, including cloud design documents and an operations guide.
For optimal Managed Cloud support, the company has upgraded its SoftwareONE AzureSimple service to gain 24x7 support, including Microsoft Premier Support. With the PyraCloud Pro service, it gains transparency and control of its cloud spend on Azure combined with consumption analytics and proactive recommendations to optimize budget planning and expense projections.
