Knight Frank Cloud Transition Enables Breakthrough Property Services



The Knight Frank team in Australia sought to reduce its on-premises data centre footprint and create operational efficiencies by moving to the cloud. Aside from increasing resiliency and capacity, it was intended for the new process to pave the way for a smarter use of data and provide the foundation for Knight Frank to offer exciting new services for customers.


Initially, Knight Frank considered a number of major cloud providers. As they narrowed down the options, Microsoft Azure emerged as the platform that would best suit their needs. Knight Frank had an existing relationship with Data#3, built over the course of many successful projects. Knowing that Data#3 is Microsoft’s largest Australian business partner, and an Azure Expert MSP, meant Knight Frank was confident in their abilities to deliver the solution.
