Smooth deployments and migrations rely heavily on thorough planning.
Whether you’re looking to configure virtual machines, networks, and gateways, DNS, security groups, or load balancers, our deployment service offers a reliable and structured process that mitigates any risks to your business. We interact with them on a daily basis and have done for years, we know these services inside out.
When you choose igroup to support your cloud deployment, planning begins during the cloud assessment and architecture stages.
A cloud assessment helps define the existing landscape within your business e.g. what software do you have, what features are you using, why you want to move to the cloud and assess what’s needed for the future?
The architecture workshop provides you with a blueprint which can be used to deploy and configure Microsoft’s cloud technology-the Azure Platform against a realistic time frame which is documented.
If we’ve provided multiple infrastructure options in our Architecture report, you can choose one of the options or combine aspects from each and if you have existing architecture, select aspects from that to create a hybrid or brand-new architecture.
We’ll help you through the decision process, so we can deliver a successful infrastructure within Azure or a client’s own infrastructure.
By the time your deployment begins, each step is clearly planned, and any risks have been identified and mitigated.
The deployment carried out by Microsoft Certified professionals, typically taking between one and ten days depending on the size of the infrastructure. The Azure team can assist you in setting up users after handover and provide full documentation.
After a deployment is completed, migration can begin.
Continuing to deliver against the documented time frame, migration commences. We’ll offer you an optional test migration that our team and yours can inspect to ensure the data is as expected. If all is well, the live migration is then actioned and when completed, we’ll carry out validation.
