An IT support provider working with a major bank had been tasked with migrating some of that bank’s systems and data to a cloud/hosted platform. This meant moving the data from the old systems and re-configuring all client machines nationally to look to the cloud location for the data. The large volume of data meant significant downtime in the case of a direct transfer which was unacceptable.
Hire Intelligence was asked to provide server hardware matching the existing infrastructure onto which the client’s servers were replicated. The hired replicas were then physically moved to the cloud provider’s datacentre and the data copied directly to the provider’s servers, greatly reducing downtime and ensuring the existing system could remain running until the moment the new system came online.
