Successful Azure Migration

Microsoft Azure case study

TSO-DATA, IT specialist and Microsoft Gold Partner in the "Cloud Platform" sector, has been successfully implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / NAV projects in Microsoft Azure for years and supports customers with regard to cloud computing and the various deployment options.

Enjoy the benefits of the cloud

Many companies want to take advantage of a cloud infrastructure. The decisive factors in the implementation are above all factors such as maximum availability, performance, security, flexibility, growth capability and cost savings.

In addition to maximum security, companies benefit above all from the scalability that an infrastructure in Azure provides - if the company grows, the infrastructure simply grows with it. Performance is another factor. Especially for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / Dynamics NAV customers who want to migrate their existing environment to Azure, a stable environment is a prerequisite. Requirements that Microsoft Azure fully covers.

Successful migration

At the beginning of 2019, TSO-DATA migrates a long-term existing customer with a 3 terabyte Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / NAV database from a German data center to the Azure Cloud. Due to the daily transaction volume and the database size, the requirement was to implement the actual migration as quickly as possible. A goal that could be achieved in less than 48 hours. The connection of further national branch stores including integrated POS software based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV was also flawless.

Due to the structured approach, the detailed project planning and the smooth implementation, the project could be completed just 6 weeks after the starting signal.

Working in the Cloud

Currently the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / NAV environment of the TSO-DATA customer is provided as "SQL on Azure" preconfigured virtual machine. As part of a future update of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / NAV, this will be replaced by the PaaS service "Azure SQL".

The Azure complete package completes the Managed Services of TSO-DATA. For example, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / NAV services are checked daily and the server operating systems are kept up-to-date by patch management. On top of that, the utilization of hardware resources is continuously monitored so that an early response can be made if necessary.

Customer scores with Azure and TSO-DATA

The migration of the locally installed Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central / NAV environment to Azure opened up advantages for the company in many respects. For the customer the short project duration, the performance improvement and the intensive and comprehensive project support by TSO-DATA stood out especially - and that with lower monthly costs.
