Cloud Migration

Wednesday, October 13th, 2021

Cloud migration

In 2019 Windows Cloud services really came of age

It’s fair to say the pandemic was a game changer for technology. IT is often only really considered when it becomes problematic, but as more and more staff went to work from home the Board of most companies suddenly realised that it was the enabler for their whole business.

Two years on, many staff do not wish to return to the traditional 9-5 in an office and in many cases they now don’t have to. Cloud technologies, which were always a consideration, now met one really important criteria for adoption, more people working outside the office than inside.

Why should you consider moving to the Cloud?

There are numerous reasons why businesses are moving to cloud computing in ever-increasing numbers. A Deloitte survey from March 2021, details the top three drivers were:

  1. Improved Security & Data Protection
  2. Data Modernization
  3. Cost & the Performance of IT Operations

Aside of these key drivers, there are many more benefits why to move to the Cloud:

  • Reduced Capex considerations (no server replacement)
  • Enterprise Class Data Security
  • More flexibility
  • Greater data mobility
  • Increased access to analytics
  • Improvements to collaborative working
  • Better business quality control
  • Rapid Data Recovery
  • No Downtime for Server Updates

Making the move

Many companies already use various Cloud solutions without really thinking about it. For these companies, completing the transition will only require some licence upgrades and perhaps some set up time to complete the transition. Consideration will be needed around both change management and user training.

Small to Medium Companies that already have significant legacy on-premises solutions will be more complex to move. They will require expert assistance to deliver a smooth transition from On-Prem to Cloud computing; IT Ambulance has a lot of experience and a well proven methodology to deliver this.

Making a Plan

There are several approaches that you can take to transition from On-Prem to Cloud-based operation.

Firstly, there is a mind shift in moving from On-Prem, which has historically involved capital investment in infrastructure, to a Cloud-based system which typically is a subscription model. There may be resistance in your in-house IT Team and current IT Support partner because they have not got the experience required to feel confident in performing such a migration.

Secondly, you need to find a partner, like IT Ambulance with genuine experience in migrating you from On-prem. This includes the consultative and technical skills to both plan and execute your migration to conclusion with minimal disruption; coupled with the ability to support your end users as they change from their familiar practice.

Thirdly, expect to have a specialist support company, like IT Ambulance manage your “Tenant” within Microsoft’s cloud. Whilst there is no server now to patch and maintain, the application and security management of your Microsoft Cloud infrastructure is significantly more sophisticated and it is essential to have this monitored regularly. Microsoft’s solution has, after all, evolved to cope with the modern security threats of our cyber terrorism and warfare age.

How do we perform on-premises-to-cloud?

Your business data is, as is ours, the lifeblood of our operation. It is ever increasing and contains more than just your IP and Knowhow. You will hold information of incredible value to cyber criminals and you have legal obligations to its security under the GDPR Act. So, it may not surprise you that a Cloud migration is significantly more than just moving your operations data from one place to another. Data is increasingly the most valuable asset your business may possess, as modern business processes generate increasing amounts of data. The process will typically be structured like this:

  1. Analysis
    Analyse the network infrastructure and bandwidth. Remediate the existing cloud tenant. Analyse the data that is going to be migrated. Consider the differences between the format of the data now, and what the format will be in the new system. Can we optimise this? Analyse the needs of your users and get a handle on their ability to cope with change. Plan to manage their needs.
  2. Backup Your Data
    It is essential to backup all data before any migration begins so that there is less likelihood of data loss should unexpected issues arise.
  3. Initial Testing
    Use a copy of your production environment and test your migration code.
  4. Extraction of Data
    Use a data loader or ETL application to extract the data.
  5. Transformation
    When doing the analysis earlier you may have identified that changing the format of the data may be required for the new host application. Now is the time to transform that data if it is required.
  6. Loading
    Using the tool selected earlier, load the data into the new system.
  7. Verification & User Acceptance Testing
    In collaboration with your staff, who are experts in your operation we check to ensure that the data transfer worked as planned and that you can access it on the new system as needed. This is now a great time to train your trainers or end users on a subset of meaningful data.
  8. Retirement
    We tend to leave the legacy system disconnected but available for a few months before it is wiped and disposed of in a secure way, in accordance with your business’s asset disposal policy.

How can we support you with your Cloud migration?

IT Ambulance did not adopt cloud services lightly. We pride ourselves on not following anyone’s doctrine and always putting our customers first. Certainly, we watched the early adopters struggle and had some notable success in recovering botched migrations that made absolutely no sense. However, the world has moved on and the threats and opportunities that influence the Cloud proposition have changed. If it’s a good fit for your business we are well placed to make it happen for you, whether that be a full cloud migration or even a hybrid solution that allows your business to have the best of both worlds.

IT Ambulance Ltd has quality systems underpinned by our ISO9001 accreditation that means our methodology for undertaking your migration is sound. Our security procedures are certified to ISO 27001 and our staff are trained and exercised on Microsoft’s solutions daily. A Cloud migration certainly isn’t something to be undertaken having watched a Youtube video. However if you feel that you have the in-house expertise to carry out a Cloud migration yourself, but are looking for some higher-level guidance, please feel free to get in touch with us for a consultation as we would happily share our experience.

If you feel that you need a partner to help manage your Cloud migration completely, then selecting an experienced IT company like IT Ambulance as your provider could be a good idea, saving you a lot of stress and at the same time reduce risks of things going wrong (including data loss or leakage) in the process.

GDPR – Compliance in a Box?

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

GDPRIT Ambulance has a long history of working with Financially Regulated Companies. This has given us a head start on our competitors in terms of meeting best practice and dealing with the compliance issues raised by GDPR.

As of 25th May 2018 your business must be able to demonstrate that it is compliant with General Data Protection Regulation Act which governs how you must hold data, how you use it for marketing and how you must respond to requests regarding personal information. Sitting at its heart is data security and you must be in a position to prove that you have robust practices that meet best practice.

However most business’s do not have a clear idea of how this Act impacts their business, even though this empowers the Information Commissioners Offers to levy fines of up to 4% Global Turnover for non-compliance.

IT Ambulance’s “Managed Service Provision” meets the requirements of GDPR, out of the box.

Virtualisation Solutions

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Virtualisation SolutionsIT Ambulance provides Virtualisation Solutions based upon Microsoft’s HyperV technology.

The beauty of this particular Virtualisation technology is that it is largely free with any of Microsoft’s Server operating Systems.

So it allows the delivery of very cost effective solutions based upon a widely supported technology.

microsoft_virtualizationSo what is Virtualisation?

Virtualisation is the creation of a virtual (computer based) rather than Physical version of something, such as an Operating System, a Server, a storage device or other network location.

If you think about your hard drive on your PC, it is separated into one or more Partitions. C://, D:// E:// etc. A Partition is the division of a hard disk drive to create, effectively, two or more separate hard drives.

Operating system virtualisation is the use of software technology to allow one server to run multiple operating system images at the same time. So one piece of physical hardware server can support multiple Virtual Servers. These can be everything from a machine that supports Windows XP to support the Clocking in Software or Diesel Dispensing management, to separating Exchange Servers and SQL based Databases and applications, or anything in between.

Using Virtualisation, it is simple to move complex, highly critical bespoke applications from out of warranty Hardware to a virtual environment on new hardware without the expensive resource of consultancy from the application vendors.

We have had great success moving Server 2003 based ERP applications across to new hardware  this way.

Virtualisation has now been around several years. It has been heavily adopted and in fact in some IT departments over adopted it. It is now sometimes easier to create a new Virtual Server than to think about where a new application could logically be fitted into the existing infrastructure.

IT Ambulance recently unpicked a department with 48 Virtual Servers, condensing them initially to 12 on 4 Physical Machines. There will be further rationalization moving forward from there, but it shows what your Technicians can do if left to their own devices with an interesting technology.

Another key consideration of Virtualisation is the disconnection of  the Application and Operating System from the Physical hardware. This is a boon when designing Disaster recovery strategy as critical Systems that are virtualised can be moved quickly from one piece of failed hardware straight over to a piece of completely dissimilar hardware, different specification, different manufacturer, with no problems.
For more information on HyperV or the application and management of a Virtualised environment please call IT Ambulance on 0800 0214 999.

Thin Client

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Thin Client

  • Would you like to have a truly, “from anywhere,” access to the assets on your business computer network?
  • Do you need to centralise data from across multiple sites anywhere in the world?
  • Do you have too many users burning your bandwidth on VPN Connections?
  • Would you like to reduce your desktop support overhead or your hardware cost?
  • Do you have specific applications that are expensive to license and you would like to share?

If your answer is yes to any of the above questions, then a Microsoft Terminal Server based solution incorporating “Thin Client” technology is worth considering.

What is a Thin Client Network?

A thin client network operates by concentrating computing power on a central server, with ‘client’ machines (i.e., computers connected to the network) doing less computing locally. In fact, the central server performs most of the computing tasks, stores data and hosts all the software applications. This allows low-powered computers and older, outdated desktop machines to run applications that normally would require higher specification computers.

Main Advantages of a Thin Client Network.

  • Highly reliable server based system that delivers superb up-time.
  • Much reduced desktop administration as issues are centralised on the server(s)
  • New Applications and Updates are run in one location.
  • Limited risk of virus attack– as virus management is centrally controlled on servers(s)
  • Standard personal desktop, programmes and data files, available from any access location or machine.
  • Reduces the bandwidth required to support remote users.
  • Small simple and silent thin client computers consume less energy and produce less heat.
  • Extend the life of existing PC Assets
  • Thin Client Device replacement cost much lower than PC Refresh
  • Eradicate reliance on a specific  location (Denial of Premises)

Main Disadvantages of a Thin Client Network.

  • The server(s) is/are critical to the operation of all computers on the network
  • A higher level of change management planning is required.
  • Technical expertise required for support is more sophisticated.
  • All computers need to be connected to a Server in order to operate. There is no stand-alone functionality.
  • Thin clients will not replace stand-alone PCs for multimedia creation, video-editing or CAD designs.
  • Requirement for Open Licensing Programme licences as opposed to cheaper OEM.

What makes up a Thin Client Network

  • Terminal Server

The central server in a thin client network is often called the ‘terminal server’. It is a powerful, high specification machine, capable of handling a large number of logged-in clients.

This server handles the processing elements of the server operating system and applications as well as much of the processing power of the individual clients.

Since the introduction of Microsoft’s Server 2008 and 64 Bit architecture able to take advantage of more than 3.2 Gb of RAM, Terminal server technology has become affordable and certainly should be considered in any environment approaching 30 users.

Client Devices

The client machine in a traditional infrastructure is the Desktop PC. These are still reusable in the Thin Client network infrastructure however they can be locked down and function at the simplest possible level, extending their lifespan and taking the urgency from your equipment refresh.

However the traditional PC can, eventually, be replaced with a purpose built Thin Client machine. These devices are typically no bigger than an external hard drive. They run cut down Windows operating systems designed to be supported by the Terminal Server. The user experience is managed completely from the server.

Thin Clients are very simple and therefore have little to go wrong. They  typically cost under £200 per device and can be attached to the back of a monitor. They offer  highly secure, clutter, noise and heat free working.

Furthermore a thin client interface can be supported by most Mobile Devices e.g, tablet devices such as iPad and many Smart phones, even when just using GSM bandwidth, not even requiring 3G!

The Terminal Server can support a mixed environment of Thin Client machines, PC’s and Mobile Devices.

Remote Backup

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Remote Back upIT Ambulance is one of the largest and most switched on IT Support companies in the South of England, we have 3 offices, Zeals, Wiltshire; Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire and Park Royal, Middlesex.

Throughout the region we are well known for our ability to supply IT Support on site in a hurry and programs of Proactive Computer Maintenance to prevent IT downtime. We pride ourselves on the quality of our staff and our service.

Remote Back upIT Ambulance is committed to quality Disaster Recovery planning with our customer base. Our practices are well tried and tested in anger. With such a large SME customer base we exercise against our Disaster Recovery Plans on average at least twice per quarter.

A basic requirement of any Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan is a quality back up copy of your data but this will be rendered utterly useless if it is burned, stolen, drenched or denied access to.

Off site back up should always be part of your companies policy, but who do you trust to be responsible for it religiously 365 days per year.

The simple answer is IT Ambulance. Our remote back-up solutions mean that we can reach into your data-store using the same safe and secure means that we employ to remotely support your equipment. Then copy your data to the security of our servers in both Wiltshire and West London.

Even in the event of a total loss of data, we have a copy available for you, avoiding a lot of recriminations, remorse and finger pointing.

As with all IT Ambulance solutions, our approach is pragmatic and affordable.

Remote Support

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Remote SupportMany IT Support Companies grab your attention by over selling the benefits of remote support. It is often shown that the (marginal) cost saving benefits of remote support, provided from anywhere in the world, have the potential to save you a vast amount of time and money.

The real facts and practical obstacles that need to be taken into account by any business considering remote support as an option are often hidden. “Surely, how can the benefits not be true? My current IT Support provider is telling me that it is possible to save me a fortune – fact!”  Thankfully, our experience and expertise enables us to demonstrate  the actual reality, that any claims like this are absolute fiction!

Remote SupportWhilst quality remote support is a key part of any quality IT support strategy, the grim fact is that when the chips (and your systems) are down and you and your team can’t work, you will want an IT Support partner that will turn up quickly on site and help you to fix the problem and have the presence (literally) to make snap judgements to create “work-arounds,” to keep you in business.

IT Ambulance Ltd is larger than most IT Support Companies. We have a dedicated team on our UK based help-desk that speak plain English and will remotely monitor  your operations systems and do routine maintenance remotely where possible but you can’t clean the fans in your hardware remotely. Nor can you just ask that little question that you wouldn’t pick up the phone for!

IT Ambulance recognises that we are a customer service company that can use technology to deliver great value to your business rather than just a faceless technology company. We believe in quality controlling our people, so we don’t use contractors. Our field based team are proud to wear our uniform and drive our trusty, sign-written, Volvo fleet.

We have a large field based team of qualified, insured and friendly Technicians in your area that are guaranteed to be on site with you within an hour when you need them.

We assign all contract customers a named technician based within 25 miles of their place of business. The face to face relationship they form with your team breaks down barriers to staff admitting they don’t know how and this face to face relationship and familiarity with your systems and staff is a great asset to both us and you.

IT Ambulance is a local IT support operation with national reach and the resources and buying power to be a truly invaluable partner.
