Microsoft Azure Cloud Migration
Azure Migration Delivered by Experts
Cloud migration refers to the process of moving digital assets and services from an on-premise server to a cloud-based infrastructure.
There are many reasons why cloud migration is among the top technology trends businesses should leverage, such as reducing the risk of data loss, lowering maintenance costs, increasing flexibility, enabling remote work, and minimising security risk. But it’s a challenging project, which is why you should partner with a trusted organisation to help you migrate seamlessly, with minimal disruption in order to become more efficient, secure and grow your business.

Cloud Migration Case Study
Images and voice recordings are the lifeblood of Quickstep’s business. The volumes of evidence being uploaded and stored by each electrician training for NVQ qualifications was increasing and the cost of hosting Quickstep’s online assessment centre was adding up. The fluctuating number of individuals and colleges participating in Quickstep’s scheme, the flexibility to scale resources for busy periods was also a key goal.
A cloud readiness assessment tailors your cloud migration strategy based on your business needs. For Quickstep we recommended a phased approach to ensure continued availability of the system throughout the migration.
1. We moved Quickstep’s data (120GB) from the incumbent hosting provider’s server to Azure.
2. The website was upgraded to a newer version of .NET and converted to an Azure Web App.
3. Finally the database was moved to Azure SQL Server completing Quickstep’s cloud migration.
Over the next five years Quickstep will save 91% per year as a direct result of migrating the online assessment system to Azure. This frees up over £118,000 to invest in other strategic initiatives. And when new NVQ candidates or colleges come on-board, we can manage resources in the Azure cloud to increase capacity quickly and easily.
