“Migration is a major project and being able to manage our existing environments with the same VMware tools gives us the space and energy to focus on modernizing other applications with Azure native services.”

Vasilis Anastasiou, Group IT Director, Operations & Infrastructure, Motor Oil

With a 50-year history in the petroleum sector, Motor Oil wanted to pivot its operations into renewable and cleaner forms of energy. However, a new type of business requires a new approach to IT, with the company able to scale, move quickly, and absorb new acquisitions. Motor Oil already had a strategic partnership in place with Microsoft, and was a long-time VMware user, making Azure VMware Solution the obvious choice for its move to the cloud. VMware Professional Services helped to implement the technology as the first large-scale user of Azure VMware Solution in the region, fine-tuning the infrastructure with high availability and disaster recovery. This capacity and elasticity have already been used to support recent acquisitions.
