Over the years, BORDONARO IT has supported many clients who had been using Hyper-V servers. As more clients pursued migrations to the cloud, many chose to migrate from Hyper-V servers to the hybrid platform, Microsoft Azure Stack Hub. Although Bordonaro’s teams successfully completed numerous migrations, they encountered some issues when moving data.
Bordonaro’s staff needed the ability to replicate data as soon as customers were ready, i.e. at a moment’s notice. To avoid any mistakes or data loss that might occur when rushing the migration process, the team would replicate the customers’ environment to their existing cloud backup solution, then manually pull the files directly from the cloud. All told, migrating data to Azure Stack took up to a day and a half.
