A client was severing ties with their parent company and wanted to use the transition as an opportunity to evacuate on-premises data centers and move to a hybrid cloud model. After full discovery and a thorough assessment of the client’s business goals, AccountabilIT designed a plan to move all infrastructure to Office 365 and Azure except for a small footprint of hyper-converged host clusters the would serve for office automation functions. The strategy gave the client their desired level of independency as well as agility and scalability for their future plans.

MIGRATION STRATEGY

  1. Migrate 60 business servers to Azure utilizing IaaS platform
  2. A full O365 migration for over 700 users
  3. Deploy two-node hyper-converged Hyper-V host clusters on-site to address client’s specific storage needs.

This client’s main desire was to free their business from the constraints of IT. Due to the corporate restructure they now need all IT resources focused on comprehensive strategy. AccountabilIT was able to provide them with that freedom by offering managed services for each component of their on-premises and Azure environment.
