Updating systems that no longer have the capacity to sustain the growth of your operations or to provide more service options for your employees or clients often means your company networks will experience some downtime. IT rollouts can be a huge challenge and the bigger the company, the greater the equipment updates requirements and the more opportunities for something to go wrong.
How we can help
New systems present a host of challenges which include analyzing if an upgrade is required, the type of upgrade needed, training employees regarding new system features, informing suppliers about new procedures to follow and much more. Your plan needs to be extremely detailed and it’s a good idea to include equipment backup rentals.
IT rollouts might cause your system to experience downtime. This is often scheduled during off-hours when operations are at a standstill. There’s always the possibility something will go awry in the updating process so part of good planning includes hiring equipment for backup. This equipment can be your safety net and if something does not go as planned, your system and networks can be back online more quickly if you have rented equipment at the ready to go in case of any glitches in the IT rollout process.
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.See others
