The Customer is a leading industrial air compressor manufacturing company. Due to separation of business from the parent company, there was a need to move client on-premise servers from the parent company datacenter to Azure Cloud.
The existing SAP server infrastructure was on On-Premise VMware environment .
A total of 42 Virtual Machines (VMs) were migrated to Azure Cloud and that included all SAP components like
- ECC – ERP Central Component
- BW – Business Warehouse

This included Production, Dev and QA Servers.
The Intelegain team of Cloud architects worked closely with the client in the initial phase wherein Dev and QA were migrated to Azure using Azure Migrate Service followed by Prod servers.
Necessary security recommendations were applied to Cloud environment. VM and DB level backups were setup using Azure Backup service.
