Businesses move from Solaris to Windows in order to extract more competitive value from equipment and applications. The consequent Windows-based environments streamline administration, improve the productivity of users and IT staff, minimize information replication, increase information consistency, and allow for faster rebounds from catastrophic failure. A Windows system helps companies create applications quickly and demands less effort to be expended on writing, integrating, and managing applications.
Progent can assist you to design and carry out an efficient migration from a Sun Solaris-based IT system to a Windows environment for running Microsoft's familiar office productivity suite, commercial software applications, and software development tools. Progent's skilled Solaris, Windows MCSE, and Cisco CCIE consultants and application experts can show you how to keep your information and reduce productivity discontinuity by creating and executing an effective migration plan that preserves your existing investments in Solaris software and network equipment. Progent can also help to train your workers and network support staff so your company stays productive.
Solaris-to-Windows migration support services offered by Progent include:
- Analysis of Existing Infrastructure
Progent will help you understand the potential advantages and risks of migrating an OS platform, application, server, storage subsystem, or information base. The process provides a thorough assessment of your IT environment, creates a baseline network inventory, lowers engineering uncertainties, and inevitably results in a more affordable transition by conserving time and dodging expensive mistakes.
- Transition Planning and Validation
Progent will develop a detailed transition deployment plan which may include pilot tests. Progent practices a phased approach with specified milestones to comply with economic, timing, and technical goals while avoiding business discontinuity. This approach is modeled after the best practices outlined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework.
- MS Exchange Migration Services
Progent can create and carry out a complete strategy for transitioning from Solaris-powered messaging to Exchange Server and can assist you to migrate Notes or Novell Groupwise applications to a Microsoft SQL application or a SharePoint Portal Server application. Progent's expert Exchange Server consultants can assess the risks and benefits of transitioning to Exchange Server and generate a comprehensive inventory of your current email infrastructure. Progent can also manage a proof-of-concept implementation to help validate a Microsoft Exchange transition strategy. Progent will also evaluate your existing email security and recommend procedures and products to guard against threats.
- Data and Application Migration
Progent can develop and implement a data and application migration strategy that includes definitions of data and software applications to be moved, identification of technologies and procedures to be utilized for the migration, risk analysis and risk minimization plans, complete project management services, timeline estimates of the transition and anticipated operational downtime, validation techniques, and emergency back-out plans. Progent's consultants can ensure the success of your data and software application transition initiative by providing certified Microsoft SQL Server 2019 experts, Microsoft SQL Server 2017 experts, or MS SQL Server 2016 integrators and data porting professionals who are veterans of large projects such as Dynamics GP migration.
- Processor and Storage Transition and Consolidation
Processor and mass storage transition and economization from Sun Solaris to MS Windows can streamline IT management, enhance information integrity and speed network throughput. By removing unnecessary equipment and software and by deploying server and storage assets efficiently, you can build an information architecture that is expandable, secure, easy to archive and restore, and affordable to administer and support. Progent's processor and media migration and consolidation support features a detailed plan with an assessment of your existing server and storage environment plus recommendations for equipment, software, services, training, and support for proof-of-concept piloting. Progent can help you to develop and execute a consolidated, fault-tolerant IT infrastructure informed by in-depth performance evaluation and capacity assessment and can specify archiving and restore solutions.
