The cloud is now part of the new normal as it continues to help many organisations work more flexibly. The first step is to move your systems to a reliable cloud platform such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) if you want it for your organisation. According to IDC, customers who migrate to AWS see their operational costs reduced by 51 percent. These customers also experience a significant increase in IT staff productivity. An AWS cloud migration services provider can tailor the process to your organisation. They provide the tools, training, expertise, and security you require at every stage, regardless of the deployment size.
Why AWS cloud?
AWS provides access to innovative services and tools on the market. Dedicated APN partners and migration experts will work closely with you to provide a simple and secure AWS cloud transformation tailored to your needs. They will apply the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework to help you understand how cloud adoption can transform your work while addressing gaps in skills and processes.
Phases of AWS migration
This first stage of the migration process involves examining the relationships between your apps and databases. It involves evaluating database workloads to see if they fall in the basic rehost (homogeneous) migration or complex re-architecture (heterogeneous) migration category. You must complete this phase to avoid running into delayed migration deadlines.
In this stage, the data gathered throughout the preparation phase is applied to develop a migration plan. The 7 Rs of migration (rehost, replatform, relocate, repurchase, refactor, retire) must all be considered for developing a migration strategy. The right choice of migration strategy is determined by your company’s drivers for cloud adoption and scheduling, corporate and financial limitations, and personnel needs.
After deciding on a migration approach, the actual migration takes place. In this stage, the target database is created, source data is transferred to the target, and data is verified. This is a time-consuming and iterative process. It involves numerous cycles of conversion, migration, and functional and performance testing.
Once migration is complete, you can innovate more quickly. This is possible as you can devote your extremely valuable IT resources to creating innovative apps that improve your clients’ experiences and transform them, rather than focusing on the repetitive heavy lifting of managing infrastructure and data centres.
