Pyramid Consulting was able to securely migrate customer’s datacenter to Microsoft Azure using MaaS’ optimized migration strategies.

Project Overview:

The datacenter had 33 servers, a mix of both virtual and physical servers, running on Windows and Linux operating systems. 1 Vanguard was used to perform the datacenter scanning and 5 Vanguards were used for datacenter migration. MaaS scanned & assessed the entire environment using agentless scanning methodology and migrated the same using Lift & Shift methodology. The project was completed within 4 weeks.


  • No data loss and near-zero downtime during migration

  • Manual effort eliminated due to automated lift & shift migration

  • Comprehensive cost analysis between multiple Clouds

  • Scheduled migration as per customer needs

  • Performance-based Cloud flavor recommendations
