How to move aging infrastructure to the cloud quickly and seamlessly is one of today's key challenges
ecosurety is a leading provider of specialist waste management services and environmental sustainability consultancy
They are based in Bristol and operate with leading organisations across the UK.
Potentially Complex Challenge
ecosurety needed to migrate ten servers from their old hosting environment - containing a mixture of physical and virtual systems, to a secure, robust cloud-based hosting environment.
Often, clarity is needed around which cloud services to choose, which workloads to move, when to schedule down-time and how to safely migrate data.
Our aim is to make sure transitioning to the cloud is pain-free, delivering maximum return for our partners and customers alike. It's gratifying to see this positive outcome exemplified for soVision and ecosurety.
Joanna Hitchings, Partner Account Manager, Outsourcery
ecosurety required a clear cloud migration solution that benefitted from simple processes and tailored step-by-step support from a trusted partner.
The soVision and Outsourcery solution
soVision's partnership with Outsourcery enabled the implementation of a comprehensive, yet cost-effective Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution for ecosurety
The navigation of the potentially fraught migration process was made straight-forward by the support provided by soVision and Outsourcery
THE MIGRATION PROCESS
soVision managed to completely migrate ecosurety very quickly and seamlessly with no disruption to the user experience. The support provided included:
- Technical qualification and scoping of the proposed solution
- An in-depth workshop, covering high level design
- A migration project plan
- Plan execution delivered by an expert project management team
Following implementation and migration of the new provision, Outsourcery's control panel enables ongoing management of the live solution to be handled by soVision enabling the company to preserve its close relationship with ecosurety.
For us, the most impressive aspect of the project was the migration process - it was so seamless and trouble-free that most of our staff wouldn't have realised we were changing our hosting environment had we not told them beforehand.
