Case Study:


A seamless journey to the cloud


Talk to us. It`s Free.


Ecosurety is a leading provider of specialist waste management services and environmental sustainability consultancy. They are based in Bristol and operate with leading organisations across the UK.

soVision IT was able to offer consultancy, IT support and effective solution. The potentially complex journey to the cloud was seamless and trouble-free for both strategic partners.

Potentially complex challenge:

One of the key challenges for IT managers today is how to move ageing infrastructure to the cloud. Often, clarity is needed around which cloud services to choose, which workloads to move, when to schedule down-time and how to safely migrate data.

Ecosurety needed to migrate ten servers from their old hosting environment – containing a mixture of physical and virtual systems, to a secure, robust cloud-based hosting environment.

This required a clear cloud migration solution that benefited from simple processes and tailored step-by-step support from a trusted partner.

Migration & Support:

The navigation of the potentially fraught migration process was made straight-forward by the support provided by soVision IT. This included:

  • Technical qualification and scoping of the proposed solution
  • An in-depth workshop, covering high level design
  • A migration project plan, including dates, risks, User Acceptance Testing (UAT) guidelines and a sign-off schedule
  • Plan execution delivered by an expert project management team

soVision IT managed to completely migrate ecosurety very quickly and seamlessly with no disruption to the user experience. This was particularly aided by the use of soVision IT migration tools which provided a solution to migrate ecosurety and have them completely up and running on the hosted solution within a matter of few days.

Following implementation and migration of the new provision, soVision IT handles the ongoing management of the live solution from their HQ in Bristol. This enables the company to preserve its close relationship with ecosurety, while still being able to rely on soVision IT for any back-end IT support when required.

Building strong relationships:

Alex Wellings, Operations Director at soVision IT, commented: “We have full access to the cloud service through our own dedicated portal. This gives us full management of the implemented solution on behalf of the customer. As a managed IT services provider that is passionate about the relationships it holds with local companies, this is especially important to us, and enables us to build strong, long-lasting relationships with our customers.”

Birger Schaathun, IT Manager at ecosurety, added: “Our decision to partner with soVision IT for this project has helped us to implement a cloud-based hosting solution that will stand us in good stead for the coming months and years. For us, the most impressive aspect of the project was the migration process – it was so seamless and trouble- free that most of our staff wouldn’t have realised we were changing our hosting environment had we not told them beforehand.”
