- Which workloads can be immediately refactored to take advantage of Cloud native architectures for extra cost savings and efficiency?
- Which workloads should move over as-is now, and set for refactoring in the near future?
- Which workloads are better off running on a Software as a Service platform instead of Cloud servers?
- Which workloads are going to run more efficiently in a traditional physical server model and would be best run at a internal or colocation data center?
One of the critical success factors in seeing return on investment from a move to the Cloud is to leverage continuous integration DevOps best practices and Infrastructure as a Service features such as auto-scaling and serverless architectures where possible. Lift and shift by itself rarely saves costs, but can be a step in getting to future cost savings if it enables these changes. The speed at which you can make these changes can make a huge impact on your budget. We help you make this leap by:
- Analyzing your current workloads
- Identifying which bucket (re-factor, lift and shift, non-Cloud, SaaS) each fits into
- Creating the migration plan
- Project management for the migration
- Perform the data migration
- Collaborate on user assurance testing
- Manage the cutover to the Cloud
