Business moves fast, but technology moves faster.
Which is why it’s essential to keep your data centre modern, fast and flexible to avoid getting left behind by competitors.
With Microsoft Azure, you’ll be able to enjoy the freedom of a cloud-based platform, with the peace of mind that comes from security with one of the world’s leading technology companies. And, with our support, you’ll be up and running in no time—working faster, cheaper, and more productively than ever before.
There are four key steps in a data centre migration to prepare for. They are:
You need to know what you currently have in your data centre, and what applications are supported, before you can decide what to move. (This is just as important for a cloud migration as a physical one.)
Migration is also about optimisation. So, once you’ve established how you currently work, it’s important to think about what you’d like to do differently in future. How can you take advantage of working in the cloud to improve your performance? This will help you build a solution that’s right for your business.
This can be a long and complex process, involving a lot of coordination of departments and service providers. Having a single point of contact is therefore essential to your success—which is where you should take advantage of your IT services provider. They will be experienced in dealing with data centre migrations and will help make the process as seamless as possible.
The work doesn’t stop after the migration. Testing in the weeks and months afterwards can help your business identify and fix any issues that might have occurred. It can also help you optimise your processes to further improve your business performance. Having the continuing support of an IT services provider is again invaluable.
