Enacting a cloud transformation
Quadrotech was the ideal partner to help address the cosmetic company’s on-premise data problems. Quadrotech has extensive experience moving Enterprise Vault data to cloud environments, and had the tools in place to meet its customer’s aggressive timelines.
“One of our core technologies, Archive Shuttle, was developed to migrate legacy email archive data to different target locations—the most popular of these being Office 365. We also have our own cloud environment that we can leverage to get migrations going quickly and minimize the hardware that the customer needs to provision,” said Adam Feher, Director of Sales, Quadrotech.
While working against a tight timeline, the cosmetics manufacturer also needed to ensure that only active users were migrated to the new environment. Thankfully, Quadrotech’s solution was optimized to meet this need.
“Our Archive Shuttle solution is enabled with a simple workflow to ensure that we only migrate active users. The solution’s Advanced Ingestion Protocol (AIP) leverages Exchange Web Services to move data in a compressed state, allowing us to migrate a customer’s data at 8x the speed,” said Feher.
Realize transformational outcomes
With Quadrotech’s solution in place, the customer is now well on its way to being fully migrated to its new cloud environment. It had targeted May to complete the migration effort and is now on track to reach that goal, with an automated data migration solution in place moving up to 2 TB of data per day.
“The migration is currently in progress and is going extremely well. The customer is moving about 75 GB to its environment per hour. Working to onboard the customer with the solution took a bit of work but now that the foundation is in place they are flying—the customer should be fully migrated in another 30 days,” said Feher.
Once fully migrated, the cosmetics company expects to experience a tremendous return on its investment—with conservative estimates indicating a 3-year savings of USD2.2 million. For a brief engagement, that amounts to an 800 percent ROI when factoring in the costs of the project.
