Network Integration Success
Our Four Steps to Your Success
Our highly motivated Network Systems Engineers and IT team utilize a four-step process to ensure the success of your IT project or Server/Network deployment. VNet Professionals Migration and Integration teams adhere to these guidelines for success:
Planning and Design
Development and Quality Assurance (QA)
The first step in an VNet Professionals Migration / Integration is to identify areas within your infrastructure that can benefit from Windows solutions. Our assessment process begins with a thorough review of your existing IT infrastructure, current and future growth estimates, and strategic initiatives. Once this information is gathered, we work with you to identify areas that could offer potential for migration, then develop a Migration Plan that is used as the foundation footprint for the process. The deliverables include:
A thorough baseline analysis of current infrastructure or application domain, which includes pricing/costs, performance benchmarks, and functional requirements. This is compared to the future state utilizing Windows. Furthermore, estimates for total migration costs are provided. Risks are evaluated; a high-level project plan is produced for you.
In order to build an infrastructure, a strong and secure foundation must be in place. The key factors in the success of a VNet Professionals Migration / Integration are the strong foundation we put into place and the thorough planning and design effort undertake. The Planning and Design phase of a VNet Professionals Migration / Integration project evaluates the data gathered in the evaluation phase and creates an actionable plan that becomes the road map for the deployment.
The Implementation Plan defines the sequential steps for a successful migration, including the time frame, team structure/resource allocation, key milestones, dependencies, and critical deadlines. A test plan is developed, which details testing scenarios, acceptance criteria, and the validation group made up of client personnel. Additionally, the plan provides a technology baseline for the Windows infrastructure deployment and takes into account services and applications that need to be deployed on the Windows platform, along with recommended hardware configurations to meet performance requirements.
The Implementation Plan also documents recovery and contingency plans to mitigate risk during transition to the new production environment.
The Development and Quality Assurance phase of an VNet Professionals Migration / Integration includes any required development, including core build development, system deployment architecture, porting, performance tuning and code optimization, as well as testing and validation of the future environment. This phase requires a coordinated effort between the client and VNet Professionals to ensure that the deployment does not disrupt ongoing business operations and is carefully overseen by an appointed VNet Professionals project manager. The result of the Development and Quality Assurance phase is a fully tested and functional solution that is ready for deployment.
Deployments should be supported by proven business processes needed by skilled administrators to effectively manage the solution once it is moved into production. The constant challenge to innovate and improve operational processes is often impeded by a lack of skilled technical resources in this area. This need to constantly upgrade and deploy cutting edge technologies puts a tremendous amount of strain on the resources within the typical IT department. VNet Professionals Maintenance Program delivers core support and maintenance services that will help you streamline and manage your Open Source infrastructure in a more efficient manner. VNet Professionals will provide knowledge transfer to your IT staff, thereby giving them the tools to continually improve your production environments.
