Customer: A National Organization for Standards and Quality
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.
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.
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.
