Case Study: Helping BlueZone Group keep "ahead of the tide" by moving to the cloud.
SITUATION: BlueZone Group are an Australia-wide provider of cutting edge technology to enable operations, science, maintenance and repair of underwater or water-based environments.
BlueZone Group were faced with aging IT infrastructure running legacy operating systems. They needed to improve reliability and performance across multiple sites on both coasts of Australia. The environment needed to be scalable to handle peak load periods and future expansion.
SOLUTION: Diamond IT proposed a project where new Virtual Servers would be built in Diamond Cloud before data was migrated from the old system to the new system, with the exception of Microsoft Exchange.
The Exchange Server was migrated to Exchange Online (Office 365), including a large number of public folders.
Hosting the BlueZone Group virtual servers in the Diamond Cloud environment provided a safe, reliable platform based in a local data centre. This provides redundancy for power, fire protection, Internet connections and security. All of this is under the control of Diamond, rather than with a 3rd party provider.
“Thank you all for your work in making this possible. It is the third server upgrade that I have been involved in and the easiest by far due to your efforts in planning, preparation and execution.”
Elizabeth Karpiel, General Manager – Operations, BlueZone Group
RESULTS: The migration completed in March 2018. Through careful planning and expertise, this complex project was efficiently run and proved to be a great success. BlueZone group’s success is built on their unique specialist knowledge as well as merger and acquisition activity. Strategically, DCloud’s ability to quickly scale to their dynamic business environment is very important. This helps keep BlueZone Group “ahead of the tide”.
“At BlueZone Group we always look for the opportunity to build scalable systems. This gives us options for the future and helps to ensure that we are building to last. Our IT systems are core to this and Diamond IT has understood our approach and added value to our business.”
Neil Hodges, CEO, BlueZone Group
