Physical to Virtual Migration
Vissensa initially reviewed the platform and advised that the one server Kan operated was a single point of failure and should me migrated to a virtual platform where resilience can be guaranteed.
Vissensa performed a physical to virtual migration of the server and took over the management of it, relieving the Kan staff from the pressures of managing infrastructure and focused them on improving and developing the digital experience that users saw when browsing and ordering Kan’s extensive range of products.
To ensure a high level of uptime for the server and the website Vissensa also suggested the move encompassed moving the service from the Kan office to one of Vissensa’s secure, always available cloud services. By doing so, Kan Ltd were able to take advantage of our capability to provide hosting services within our UK data centres and increase efficiency across their platform.
An initial test a week prior to the planned cutover to allow for testing and ensuring the virtual environment performed as expected with the legacy application. Once confirmed, a secondary migration took place at a point of least disruption and allowed for the full physical to virtual migration to be complete over a weekend.
