Onboarding and offboarding

Onboarding and offboarding
Getting started Once an order is agreed and accepted, Atlas Cloud’s implementation team will begin the on-boarding process. This will involve building and configuring the application(s) / virtual machine (s) required by the customer and the migration of any associated data to the secure data centre environments. We provide a technical Project Manager to lead the design as well as an implementation team of experienced Architects and Senior Engineers to implement, test and transition to the Atlas Cloud. There would then be a handover to the Atlas Cloud support team which is staffed by experienced Engineers at 1st, 2nd and 3rd line levels of support. The entire process would be overseen by the CTO of Atlas Cloud from the very beginning, throughout the delivery and ongoing support thereafter. Atlas Cloud uses the IT Service Delivery Management framework, ITIL, and all of the support processes are designed around this. In addition, we hold ISO certifications in 9001, 14001, 27001:2013 and BSI10012.
Service documentation Yes
Documentation formats PDF
End-of-contract data extraction If the client wishes to change to a different IT provider, the first step is for the client to file a request to leave. Next, an End of Contract date is agreed. Data is then collected via the client from the Atlas Cloud data centre or placed in an encrypted location at the request of the client. Atlas Cloud do not keep unencrypted data outside the data centre. The customer can extract their data at any time, whether by self-service request or a request for Atlas Cloud to perform on the customer’s behalf. The cost of this will be based upon a time and materials basis.

Client owned licenses are subsequently handed back to the client and any rented hardware is returned to Atlas Cloud. Finally, the client’s desktops are deleted from the systems and a confirmation is sent to the client.
End-of-contract process The cost of the contract only covers the contract and not and additional work needed to exit the contract. We would charge an hourly rate for any additional work that needs to be completed as part of the contract end.
