Migrate to AWS in a breeze

Transitioning applications and data from on-site data centers or another cloud service (e.g. Azure, Google Cloud, Heroku, DigitalOcean, OVH) to AWS can often prove more complex than initially anticipated.

The challenges, both technical and non-technical, range from transferring enormous quantities of data to the cloud, dealing with the incompatibility of non-cloud native apps in cloud settings, contending with a lack of in-house expertise to manage the migration, which can interrupt productivity, and increased risk exposure.

Our skilled team of migration specialists, armed with years of hands-on experience in multiple migrations, stands ready to provide the crucial support you need throughout your migration journey.

From zero to AWS hero: how to migrate to AWS

For a successful transition of legacy applications to the cloud, organizations need to choose the optimal strategy considering each application's features and the target environment. Additionally, the interdependencies among applications are crucial. It's imperative to comprehend every element within the application and its interactions with other components to avoid unforeseen issues during or post-migration.

One commonly adopted approach is the Rehosting strategy. Also known as the "lift and shift" method, this approach involves relocating an application from an on-premises environment directly to the cloud, with no modifications made to the application itself. This strategy is advantageous in that it allows for a speedy migration while potentially reducing costs. However, it does limit the potential to take full advantage of the cloud's capabilities, such as auto-scaling and on-demand pricing.

Another strategy is Replatforming, which involves making minimal changes to the application without a major overhaul of the application's core architecture. This could include upgrading to a managed cloud-based database or moving the application into a container platform. This strategy aims to move workloads into an environment that allows for easier management, improved scalability, high availability, and automation.

Refactoring involves making significant architectural changes to the application. This could involve breaking monolithic applications into microservices for improved performance and agility. Although this strategy can be the most time and energy-consuming, it often delivers the greatest return for certain types of applications.

Our AWS migration process

To guarantee a seamless transition, we adopt a systematic and phased strategy to the migration process, taking into account data management necessities, data governance, compliance, and security. During this process, we collaborate closely with you to establish appropriate procedures and governance measures that maintain operational continuity during the cloud transition. Without these precautions, the migration process could potentially compromise security, performance, and cost-effectiveness.

  1. Evaluation: Initiate with a thorough migration assessment and pinpoint the on-premise resources to strategically plan the commencement of cloud migration.
  2. Transition: Execute a swift and effective migration using robust, flexible tools that ensure negligible disruptions to your business operations.
  3. Optimization: Refine resources to boost performance, maximize the return on investment, and uphold compliance standards.
  4. Management: Adjust resources to reinforce security and supervise analytics and AWS usage.

AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF)

The AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (AWS CAF) utilizes AWS's vast experience and proven strategies to assist you in transforming digitally and speeding up your business outcomes through inventive use of AWS. The AWS CAF pinpoints specific organizational abilities that form the backbone of successful cloud transitions. These capabilities offer best practice insights that assist in enhancing your readiness for the cloud.

The AWS CAF organizes its capabilities into six distinct perspectives: Business, People, Governance, Platform, Security, and Operations. Each perspective consists of a collection of capabilities that stakeholders with functional relationships own or manage in the course of the cloud transformation journey. Leverage the AWS CAF to recognize and prioritize transformation opportunities, assess and refine your readiness for the cloud, and progressively modify your transformation roadmap.

  • Business Perspective helps ensure that your cloud investments accelerate your digital transformation ambitions and business outcomes. Common stakeholders include chief executive officer (CEO), chief financial officer (CFO), chief operations officer (COO), chief information officer (CIO), and chief technology officer (CTO).
  • People Perspective serves as a bridge between technology and business, accelerating the cloud journey to help organizations more rapidly evolve to a culture of continuous growth, learning, and where change becomes business-as-normal, with focus on culture, organizational structure, leadership, and workforce. Common stakeholders include CIO, COO, CTO, cloud director, and cross-functional and enterprise-wide leaders.
  • Governance Perspective helps you orchestrate your cloud initiatives while maximizing organizational benefits and minimizing transformation-related risks. Common stakeholders include chief transformation officer, CIO, CTO, CFO, chief data officer (CDO), and chief risk officer (CRO).
  • Platform Perspective helps you build an enterprise-grade, scalable, hybrid cloud platform; modernize existing workloads; and implement new cloudnative solutions. Common stakeholders include CTO, technology leaders, architects, and engineers.
  • Security Perspective helps you achieve the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your data and cloud workloads. Common stakeholders include chief information security officer (CISO), chief compliance officer (CCO), internal audit leaders, and security architects and engineers.
  • Operations Perspective helps ensure that your cloud services are delivered at a level that meets the needs of your business. Common stakeholders include infrastructure and operations leaders, site reliability engineers, and information technology service managers.
