  • EOL and containerization advisories

  • Detailed Cloud feasibility reports for each location

  • Comprehensive impact analysis using dependency mapping

Assessment of UK-based Healthcare Company for Microsoft Azure Migration

This NHS customer, a part of the UK's biggest health content sharing portal, wanted to assess their datacenters running across the country for Microsoft Azure migration. They approached Sol-Tec, a Leading UK-based Cloud Services Provider, to help them with the assessment of datacenters. Sol-Tec helps public sector organizations discover new capabilities and cost efficiencies through datacenter migration to Cloud.

Sol-Tec has partnered with Corent Technology to deliver Cloud assessment and migration services to its customers through MaaS. The customer's datacenters were assessed using MaaS by Sol-Tec and detailed reports explaining the Cloud migration feasibilities of each datacenter and its servers were generated and shared with the customer.
     

Challenges:

  • Customer wanted to analyze their 6 locations separately for migration planning.
  • Had to understand the infrastructure landscape and dependencies between resources for effective migration planning.
  • Needed a migration strategy for 100+ End-of-Life (EOL) Windows servers to Microsoft Azure.
  • Required a cost analysis with savings opportunities available on Cloud in the longer run.

Solution:

  • Individual Cloud feasibility reports were generated for the 6 different customer locations.
  • MaaS identified the move groups available in the infrastructure based on the dependency mapping and helped define an optimal Cloud migration strategy.
  • Microsoft Azure’s capability to migrate EOL servers with extended support for Windows was recommended.
  • Cost analysis was performed with 3-year reserved instances available on Microsoft Azure for effective budgeting.
  • Recommendations to consolidate the workload components during Microsoft Azure migration were provided for cost savings.

Result:

Migration strategy for each customer location was defined individually using MaaS, considering various business needs of the customer.
