Improved business agility, application performance, and scalability by migrating to Azure

.
Trigent effortlessly moved our business-critical workload to Azure, which significantly improved application performance and business agility. The Azure cloud environment ensures better application scalability and security, along with ease-of-maintenance.

A real estate investment trust (REIT)

Our client, a real estate investment trust (REIT) headquartered in N.Y. is one of North America’s largest publicly traded owners and operators of open-air, grocery-anchored shopping centers, and mixed-use assets. The company owns over 400 shopping centers and mixed-use assets comprising 70 million square feet of gross leasable space primarily concentrated in USA’s top major metropolitan markets. The company has specialized in shopping center acquisitions, development, and management for more than 60 years.

Scalability & high availability of business applications

The client had a legacy solution that was the backbone of its core business operations. The business-critical applications, including lease management systems used by sales, operations, and other departments, were run on a private data center. The existing setup was unable to meet the projected growth in the business & users.

The legacy solution presented many security risks as it was using outdated protocols and operational only with many ports open through the firewall. Much of the maintenance activities were manual.

On-time and on-budget seamless migration to Microsoft Azure Cloud

Trigent carried out a thorough assessment of the client’s data center infrastructure to understand the applications, different operating systems, security considerations, and processor & memory utilization. Trigent also designed new security models and cloud-native backup recovery processes. We designed an effective migration strategy, that rehosted (lift-and-shift) most applications, with few carefully re-architected applications.

Considering business agility, cost optimization, and ease-of-maintenance, we suggested the client move the workloads to the Azure cloud environment. The re-architected applications leveraged native features of Azure.

Cloud migration strategy

By leveraging Azure services for compute, storage, network & security along with using the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure, they have accelerated the agility, governance, and cost benefits of their Azure investment.

Trigent cloud experts carried out a thorough assessment of client infrastructure, studied the environment, and prepare a detailed inventory list by considering the following factors:

  • Existing hardware, including servers, load balancers, hard disks, etc.
  • Operating systems and security levels
  • Applications and their performance
  • Storage utilization and configuration
  • Backups and disaster recovery settings
  • Secure access to servers

Client benefits
