Proact is set to deliver a data management service to Colly Company, supporting a planned migration from on-premise IT operations to the cloud. Proact will also advise Colly Company on its cloud strategy, providing insight to meet key objectives which will enhance business support as well as cost efficiency, including the usage of public cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Colly Company, part of the Indutrade Group which is listed on the Nasdaq Nordic exchange, is a leading supplier of technologically advanced components and functional solutions to Scandinavian industry. Today, Colly Company has a centralised IT infrastructure with an on-premise data centre that also serves about ten additional Indutrade companies.
As part of its business strategy, Colly Company has commenced a planned, step-by-step migration to the cloud, where the on-premise IT infrastructure will eventually be phased out. New data centre hardware will no longer purchased for upgrades. As an initial action for the migration, ERP system operations have been outsourced.
The company has taken a huge step by selecting a cloud service for storage and data management which will be delivered by Proact. This is a complete solution for storage and backup, eliminating the need for a third-party disaster recovery service. Proact will leverage data centres in different Euro zones to deliver this solution.
“We are planning for a gradual migration to the cloud, a process which is facilitated by the flexible and scalable cloud solution offered by Proact,” says Gürhan Özay, IT Manager at Colly Company AB. “We also expect to benefit from Proact as advisors, thanks to the Group’s broad expertise which covers the cloud as well as our current IT environment.”
The storage solution advised by Proact will allow Colly Company to use multiple public cloud services in parallel, or to switch between clouds, without moving data over a WAN. This enables a highly flexible IT model which scales easily to accommodate the evolving business needs of Colly Company and other Indutrade companies, while lowering the total cost of ownership.
