Office 365 Migration

Prior to speaking with Altinet, Sintons were in the initial stages of migrating all of their users to Office 365, with the associated OneDrive, cloud mailboxes, and a new SharePoint intranet. Knowing their backup solution at the time would not be able to cover all of this data, they searched for a new backup provider who could meet their criteria of security, reliability, ease of use, and cost effectiveness. 

The Cloud-to-Cloud solution provided by Altinet allowed Sintons to backup all of this data with little on-going operational overhead after the initial setup, as well as a daily summary of the backup status - this allowed the team to focus on their ongoing migration and other operational tasks without having to log into systems to check manually.

White Paper: Unlimited Cloud Storage with Cloud-to-Cloud Backup

Altinet have worked with us to implement an excellent easy to use product that gives us the peace of mind that our user data is securely held.

David Mather IT Manager, Sintons LLP



Implementation Made Easy

Altinet worked with Sintons to ensure the solution was right for their needs, setting up an initial online demonstration and agreeing on a proof of concept trial of the product. As they were already in the initial stages of migrating to Office 365, time efficiency was an essential factor of this trial and implementation stage.

"We were up and running with a proof of concept for the initial trial users on Office 365 within a couple of days." says David Mather, IT Manager, "As we were satisfied that the solution fulfilled our requirements, we then transitioned into the live system."

Following the trial, Sintons spent a couple of hours with support while they configured the initial backups, and were up and running straight away. During this change-over period from the trial to the live version of the product, Altinet's support team provided regular updates and liaised with Barracuda to quickly resolve any slight issues that occurred. 



Barracuda's Cloud-to-Cloud Backup
