Customer environment & situation

Our first customer in our case study is a government trusted entity for Malaysian standardization. Their environment has 100s of Virtual Machine running on both in VMWARE and Hyper V running on-premise. Their goal was to transform their datacenter by moving to Azure as an alternative to renewing their hardware leasing.

Challenges

One of the several challenges they face was multiple platforms on hypervisor being used in their environment which did not make it an ideal situation for future-proofing. Since they had an existing data center ecosystem, it left a complex footprint for us to migrate in an efficient and methodical manner. Lastly, due to the limited time afforded from the expiration date of their leasing we had to make the extra effort in meeting the challenge as we needed to complete everything before the leasing ended.

Solution

Our solution was to reduce the impact on the user experience by transforming their datacenter and migrating the related workload piecemeal based on business-critical and noncritical applications that were actively being used at that time.  By leveraging on the great utility of Azure migrate and good project management, we managed to migrate all the data safely on on time before the end of their lease giving our customer time to evaluate our migration results.

Customer environment & situation

Our second customer in our case study up to today has 250 servers running on-premises which they envision to lift and shift to Microsoft Azure and continue with their Application Modernization process in their digital transformation goal.

Challenges

The first and foremost challenge was the inter-dependant critical workloads that rely on each other function properly making migrating them by piecemeal difficult, to say the least. On top of that, the customer was looking to reduce the carbon footprint of its on-prem IT Infrastructure.

Solution

The solution was to engage with their team is going through the project under i-transform solution to the mission-critical applications to Microsoft Azure. Our i-transform solution also provided a visual dashboard of the migration process for our customers and our team to monitor and fix if any problems were detected before impacting our customer’s workflow. This revolutionary solution gave us the advantage of anticipating and preparing for our large-scale complex migration.
