Award-winning Data Centre Digital Transformation and Transition
Hong Kong, APAC
With the assistance of PTS, Zurich Insurance undertook an award-winning Data Centre Migration that formed part of its Digital Transformation programme. The success of the complex project provides the Client with a sound platform, on which it can build its Asia-Pacific business and remove the risks associated with recovery from IT incidents.
Zurich Insurance Case Study
“All the hard work by the APAC teams has paid off with a seamless migration. Congratulations to everyone and thank you for your expertise and commitment. The best run and most successful Data Centre migration I have experienced.”
The multinational insurance company sought to relocate its regional Data Centre to a colocation facility as the lease of its Hong Kong office floor was due to expire. Zurich insurance seized the opportunity to review the IT estate, refresh technology, and implement a standardised platform covering both the Primary and Secondary Data Centres. With extensive local knowledge, PTS was engaged to assist with the selection of a suitable facility and the subsequent migration that followed.
Working closely with the Zurich insurance Technology Team, PTS Identifies the IT Infrastructure, Applications, and Services to develop a Data Centre design that would reduce the current footprint by 50%. Once a migration strategy for each service was agreed upon, the team developed a detailed plan to move services to the new facility. Within a tight timeframe of 15 weeks, PTS successfully managed the migration of 3,500 servers to the new Data Centre facility, completing a near-perfect programme which resulted in zero downtime for the business. As a result, the project was announced as the winner of the DCD The Asia Pacific Cloud Journey of the Year Award at the Data Centre Week Awards.
