Cloud Migration Services The world is hybrid. We can help you migrate the right workload to the right cloud. Migrating to the cloud can transform your business and give you a competitive edge. Our cloud migration services can help you move complex workloads to the right cloud environment, tailored for your specific needs, and establish a foundation to create new value. Start Your Cloud Migration Journey Migrate to the Cloud & Evolve With Confidence Our approach varies for different types of cloud migration. Security and existing documentation will inform the type of migration more than timelines. With our cloud migration consulting services, we can help you assess the type of cloud migration and cloud platforms that will work best for your business. Cloud migration sets you on a path towards an improved future state, but there are risks and dependencies that can be daunting. With our experienced cloud migration experts, we follow a proven framework to de-risk and accelerate your cloud migration, so you can experience all the benefits of cloud computing. Here’s How the Cloud Migration Process Works: Design and Build a Reference Architecture While cloud migration strategies differ, best practices for secure and resilient cloud infrastructure are universal — regardless of the cloud provider. We work with you during the design process to ensure you’re in the loop and can provide feedback to our cloud engineering experts. Detailed Cloud Migration Planning & Strategy After a thorough analysis of your inventory, business applications and workloads, we come up with a detailed cloud migration strategy and plan. With our proprietary Cloud Launchpad solution, we use prescribed best practices to reduce the timeline of your cloud adoption and speed up the deployment of your cloud migration. Phased Migration with Testing and Refinement A typical migration often involves several phases. Cloud migration success comes with small, incremental wins that can include proof of concepts. This is an opportunity to ‘fail fast’ and solidify assumptions before any systematic migration of your workloads to the cloud. DevOps CI/CD Pipeline Automation Following the migration, we can take on the ongoing management of your cloud environment if you don’t have the resources in-house. Building in automation as part of the design can help you scale when needed, and we can help integrate your tooling with ours. Final Testing and Hand-Off If you’ve purchased managed cloud services, the final testing and hand-off aims to solidify the understanding of roles and responsibilities during the run state and to document procedures. This is also an iterative process since cloud computing environments will naturally change over time — and we’ll be there for you every step of the way.

Cloud migration is the process of moving your data, computing resources and applications, either partially or fully, to a cloud computing environment. It can also involve cloud-to-cloud migration by moving from one cloud provider to another. What are the key benefits of cloud migration? From greater cost savings to more reliable applications and infrastructure, there are many benefits to migrating to the cloud. Here are some of the key benefits you can experience when you migrate to the cloud. Scalability Flexibility and agility Greater accessibility to data and file sharing Business continuity Increased data security, back and recovery Accelerated speed to market Faster innovation Automatic updates How does on-premise to cloud migration work? Migration from an on-premises data centre to the cloud involves transferring data that is stored on-premise to a cloud platform. This may include migration of all your data to a single or multi-cloud platform or a hybrid approach that combines both public and private cloud services. What are the cloud migration types? There are different types of cloud migration and the path you choose will depend on your existing and legacy systems and business objectives when migrating to the cloud. A lift-and-shift is a straightforward migration of all your assets to the cloud. Hybrid cloud migration involves migrating part of your assets to the cloud while keeping others in an on-premises data centre. Cloud migration may require application refactoring and rearchitecting before proceeding with a migration. You can also utilize multiple cloud providers by transferring your assets across different cloud environments. What are the stages of cloud migration? There are different steps needed to achieve a successful cloud migration and a good cloud service provider should be able to guide you through the process. It should start with an assessment of your business needs and existing inventory, applications and workloads. Next, you should develop a cloud migration strategy and plan. Then comes the data, resource and application migration to either a single public cloud, multiple cloud platforms or a hybrid solution leveraging both public and on-premise infrastructure. Once this is complete, you need to test and optimize your new systems. What is the best cloud migration strategy? There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to deciding on a strategy to move to the cloud. A good cloud migration strategy for your business will depend on your existing infrastructure and applications, your business needs and goals, and your budget.
