Virtualisation

Tricord Data have been integral to several large transformation programmes designed to migrate existing applications and infrastructure to virtual platforms hosted locally or in the cloud. We have designed and delivered technologies including:

  • Hyper-V;
  • VMWare;
  • XenServer.

We have assisted organisations in achieving the following benefits of virtualisation and cloud (Public, Private, Hybrid) based services:

  • Understanding and reducing the true TCO;
  • Reducing cost through achieving reductions in energy consumption;
  • Improving availability by reducing downtime;
  • Maintain focus on core disciplines by redistributing support costs;
  • Establishing cost-effective business continuity;
  • Simplify operation and administration through service agreements.
Virtualisation


Tricord Data provide a customisable engagement process to meet the individual needs of each client. The key phases are:

  • Assessment - We start by performing an assessment or audit of the current environment and ascertaining as much compatibility, performance and capacity data as possible. We establish a set of core functional and non-functional requirements to feed into architecture and design.

  • Architecture and Design - We formulate an architectural approach to align with the clients existing practices. We produce a design that articulates how each requirement is met encapsulating each product, technology, security, safety and operational criterion.

  • Proof of Concept (PoC) - We build a PoC with pre-defined use-cases to ensure that the proposed design is fit for purpose. We capture feedback from the PoC and incorporate it into the design in preparation for implementation.

  • Migration and Implementation - We coordinate our services to align with the client in achieving implementation. We provide training to operational personnel in sustainment the environment. We can assist in the migration of application and services minimising any impact on the business.

  • Operation: - We provide support to operational personnel to ensure practices are carry our correctly and associated documentation is maintained.

Tricord Data combines its service portfolio to provide E2E service delivery.
