Majestic was appointed to plan and migrate production servers at Eurofins | mgt from a physical to virtual environment.
Eurofins|mgt has emerged from the Eurofins Scientific acquisition of mgtLabMark Environmental Pty Ltd. Eurofins|mgt has 200 staff and a network of National NATA Accredited Environmental Laboratories located in Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne that are supported by a National distribution and service network with offices located in Adelaide, Perth, Darwin & Newcastle. Eurofins also operates an Environmental Laboratory in Wellington along with Food and Agroscience Laboratories in Auckland, Hamilton & Christchurch.
Virtualisation was required to provide features that reduce administration costs, increase security, have the servers “data centre” ready and provide additional administrative functionalities.
Majestic successfully planned and implemented the migration in collaboration with Eurofins | mgt IT by:-
- esigning a new virtualised server infrastructure based on Clustered VmWare Environment and SAN devices.
- Migration of production server and minimum downtime
- Post migration review, testing and clean up.
- Optimise the virtual environment for performance.
