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.

Benefits:

  • 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

  • Servers are migrated with same IP addresses to avoid Application configuration and DNS propagation

Migration to Microsoft Azure using MaaS

Pyramid Consulting, a major partner of Corent in Cloud Assessment and Migration, is a business technology solutions firm that helps organizations navigate the digital transformation by applying progressive technology solutions.

Peckham, Inc., a nonprofit community vocational rehabilitation organization, approached Pyramid Consulting to assess and migrate their datacenter to Cloud. Pyramid Consulting utilized Corent’s MaaS, a fully automated Cloud Assessment and Migration Platform, to plan and execute a customized strategy for seamless migration of the customer’s datacenter to Cloud.
     

Challenges:

  • Need relevant knowledge/resources to assess the datacenter, plan & execute Cloud migration and deploy applications.
  • Identifying the dependency map between servers/workload components.
  • 10 TB server data need to be migrated to Cloud using 5 Vanguards in a short period without data loss.
  • Migrating a server with User Profile Disks (UPD) to Cloud.
  • Evaluating and comparing the migration costs for multiple Clouds.

Solution:

  • Lift & shift methodology for rapid migration of the datacenter to Microsoft Azure using MaaS.
  • Dependency mapping capability of MaaS was utilized to identify the external communication links of servers for better migration planning.
  • Rapid migration of the complete data to Microsoft Azure using MaaS’ diverse Cloud expertise.
  • Server with User Profile Disks (UPD) was migrated on customer scheduled time without data loss.
  • Comprehensive assessment reports were generated with a detailed comparison of costs between multiple Clouds.
  • Continuous data synchronization until cutover to ensure that the data are synchronized during migration.

Result:

Using MaaS, Pyramid Consulting helped Peckham, Inc. to analyze the servers in their datacenter and migrate them to Microsoft Azure within a short period. Peckham, Inc. was able to gain an in-depth understanding of their datacenter using the MaaS-generated reports and perform their Cloud migration to Microsoft Azure with ease.
