Atos, a digital service provider, must assist clients with large-scale server migrations to Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS) that will help them realize the operational cost savings of moving to the cloud.
With its cutting-edge technologies, digital expertise and industry knowledge, Atos supports the digital transformation of its clients across various business sectors. Atos is the Worldwide Information Technology Partner for the Olympic & Paralympic Games and is listed on the CAC40 Paris stock index.
The cloud migration solution chosen must support multiple migration types, minimize downtime, scale to support the largest migration projects, and provide reliable migration services.
With digital transformation, companies continuously modernize their IT, innovate, and rapidly shift to cloud based models. Many Atos clients are interested in a cloud environment to reduce their operational costs, create a higher availability platform with an uptime guarantee of 99.999%, improve their security, and centralize their IT management.
However, providing reliable migration services to these clients was challenging without a unifying migration solution like PlateSpin Migration Factory. Many platforms, including cloud platforms, come with native migration tools, but these tools lack the scalability and manageability of a true enterprise-grade migration solution. Having to use multiple tools for different migration types increased costs in terms of training and the potential for human error. Furthermore, platform tools often lack advanced features for keeping downtime to a minimum and allowing necessary test cycles before cutting servers over to the cloud.
