Cloud Strategy

Introduction

A Globally recognized international investment bank based in the City of London with whom Fully Meshed IT had previously contracted, had recently sold a portion of their Australian banking business to a local bank and had a requirement to identify, extract and host data and applications for the remaining business units across Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.  A Public/Private hybrid cloud model had been decided upon by the business and Fully Meshed IT were engaged to execute the migration of services into the Cloud infrastructure.

FMIT approach

We were excited to be involved with this challenging and innovative project which involved full lifecycle participation. We engaged with stakeholders to clearly define the business requirements. We undertook management of the third party Cloud providers. We defined the migration plan and developed bespoke scripts to automate the process of exporting and importing virtual machines between the VMware vSphere environments. We provided on-site support in Australia during the critical migration phases of project. We processed each workload that arrived into the Cloud infrastructure to ensure the corporate standards for monitoring, anti-virus and backup were strictly adhered to. We produced operational documentation and ran workshops to facilitate skills transfer to support staff.

Results

We succeeded in completing the project within aggressive timescales with minimum disruption to the users during the data and service migration. We helped the bank to achieve their goal of standardising their server infrastructure in Australia which enhanced stability and supportability by the global support teams. Fully Meshed IT was recognized as a key enabler of the success of the project and retained by the client for future infrastructure projects.
