Cloud Migration Strategy

Moving your application to Cloud requires a systematic strategy derived by validating efficient ways to migrate it. This strategy depends on the complexity of your environment. When you step into moving the application to the cloud, there are some important considerations that you need to make. We at DFYN make it easy for you by creating a proper plan and assessments. Our migration strategy involves 6 important stages such as Re-host, Re-platform, Re-purchase, Re-factor/ Re-architecture, Retain, Retire.

Re-hosting also known as ‘lift and shift’ moves your existing physical or virtual servers to the cloud without making any major architectural changes.

Re-platforming is about moving applications to the cloud with few optimizations like moving self-hosted infrastructure to managed services

Repurchasing is a faster way to access Cloud that involves change of the existing licensing model.
Refactoring for modifying applications to take advantage of SaaS and PaaS based technology which will aid in cost reduction.
Retaining few or more on-premise solutions just in case the migration cost is higher than the application’s value is advantageous when depreciation value is achieved before migration.
Retiring can be done when unused applications are decommissioned or clubbed with other dependent applications to save huge cost.

Planning your migration

Migration to cloud is worth a try but there are certain key things to keep in mind before you take the plunge.

Before planning on your migration strategy, it is important that you analyze your existing infrastructure, metadata, workflows and custom apps if any. This will help you give a clear idea of what needs to be migrated and what can stay on premise. You may want to completely adopt Microsoft platforms across the organization, or do you want to migrate only some collaborative content and opt for a hybrid approach.

Once you have a clear idea of what you want. Explore the available migration project plan and strategy. Adopt an agile migration strategy by migrating data in batches.

Six Steps Process of Cloud Migration Explained

Benefits of Cloud Migration

Migrating to the cloud means you should be able to deploy your apps and services more quickly. Many services provide the ability for you to quickly provision servers and other resources within a few steps, which tends to be a much simpler process than buying servers, installing the needed operating system, and placing it into a network or data center.

Today’s specialist cloud services enable you to monitor security or downtime concerns in the system, on time. This saves time and energy to check every element or application, individually. Moreover, it centralizes the monitoring process unlike the usual approach of IT personnel overseeing different dedicated interfaces.

Cloud services reduce the complexities of infrastructure setup and the related network. It boils down to filling out specifications and requirements and launching the necessary services. This helps in saving precious business hours that can be devoted to other business-growth opportunities.

Backup and Logging Services are vital as they keep you posted about what went wrong and at which application or system in case of an outage. A backup can get you back into the flow of things that were disrupted due to an outage.

Earlier security was considered as the main disadvantage of cloud computing. Reliable cloud consulting service providers take the responsibility of ensuring security during the cloud experience such as keeping hackers out of your data and apps. They take security a step ahead by deploying automatic security updates to keep them safe from vulnerabilities. However, it requires some security efforts on behalf of business owners to ensure data safety.

With cloud services, your team won’t need to be at a specific location to deploy, update, or fix issues with any of the various machines being used. This makes it a more flexible solution when compared to the necessity of being on-site. Also, the consistency of the provisioning and deployment processes the cloud provides can make it much easier to collaborate, as everyone can be on the same page.
