An IT support provider supporting a “Big 4” bank had been tasked with migrating some of that banks 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 clients servers were replicated. The hired replicas were then physically moved to the cloud providers datacenter and the data copied directly to the providers servers, greatly reducing downtime and ensuring the existing system could remain running until the moment the new system came online.
