With our team of highly skilled and experienced consultants, we can help you navigate the complex process of migration and ensure a smooth transition to the cloud.
Cloud migration is the process of moving data, applications, and other business operations from an on-premises environment to a cloud computing environment. The main types of cloud migration include:
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) migration: This type of migration involves moving the underlying infrastructure, such as servers and storage, to a cloud-based platform.
- Platform as a Service (PaaS) migration: When moving applications from on-premises to Platform as a Service (PaaS), it means that the application is being transitioned from running on a company’s own physical servers to running on a cloud-based platform provided by a third-party vendor.
- Software as a Service (SaaS) migration: This type of migration involves using cloud-based software applications, such as email and customer relationship management (CRM) systems.
There are several different approaches to migrating to the cloud. Some common methodologies include:
The lift-and-shift methodology is a cloud migration approach that involves moving existing applications and infrastructure to the cloud without making any changes. This method also known as “rehosting” or “lift-and-shift” is considered the quickest and simplest method of migrating to the cloud, it is also considered the least disruptive for running operations.
The main benefit of this approach is that it allows businesses to quickly move their existing systems to the cloud and start realizing the benefits of cloud computing, such as increased scalability and cost savings, without the need for extensive re-architecting or re-coding.
However, the lift-and-shift approach may not fully leverage the benefits of cloud services. It may still be limiting the cloud service and the scalability of the systems. Additionally, although lift and shift can provide cost benefits, costs can potentially increase over time if the system was not designed for cloud-native architecture. This method is best for applications that are not expected to change or where changes will be minimal, and for organizations that need to begin their migration journey but have limited budgets or resources for deep changes.
Re-platforming is a cloud migration approach that involves making changes to an application’s architecture to make it more suitable for the cloud. This method is also known as “lift-tinker-and-shift”. The goal of re-platforming is to take advantage of the capabilities and features of cloud platforms, such as automatic scaling, load balancing, and multi-region deployment.
Re-platforming typically involves optimizing the application’s architecture to take advantage of cloud-specific features and services and making changes to the application’s code to ensure it can run on the cloud platform. This approach can be more complex and time-consuming than lift-and-shift, but it can also provide greater long-term benefits.
The main benefit of re-platforming is that it enables organizations to gain the advantages of running their applications on the cloud while keeping their existing codebase and features. This method is best for applications that are expected to evolve and scale over time, and for organizations looking to take full advantage of cloud services and features, for the long term.
However, re-platforming may also present a certain degree of risk and uncertainty if not executed properly, as it might lead to technical debt, compatibility issues, or even application downtime. This is why it’s important to have a skilled and experienced team, like Proactive Logic Consulting Inc. to guide you through the process and mitigate the risks.
Refactoring is a cloud migration approach that involves making significant changes to an application’s code to optimize it for the cloud. This method is considered the most extensive approach of the migration methods, as it requires the most effort and changes to the application code.
The goal of refactoring is to redesign the application architecture and code to make the most of cloud-native features and services, such as containerization, serverless functions, and microservices. This can involve breaking down a monolithic application into smaller, more manageable microservices that can run independently, enabling greater scalability and flexibility.
The main benefit of refactoring is that it allows organizations to fully leverage the capabilities of cloud platforms and services, enabling them to achieve greater scalability, performance, and cost savings. This method is best for applications that are built with outdated architecture, or for organizations that are looking for long-term solutions and want to achieve the full potential of the cloud.
However, refactoring can be a complex and time-consuming process and requires significant expertise in cloud architecture and development. It also requires significant effort, resources, and possibly a complete change in the development team. Therefore, it’s important to have a solid plan and a team of experts, like Proactive Logic Consulting Inc. to guide you through the process and ensure a smooth migration.
Building new cloud-native application
Building a new cloud-native application is a cloud migration approach that involves creating a new application specifically designed to run on cloud environments. A cloud-native application is an application that is designed, developed, and deployed specifically to take advantage of cloud computing and the benefits it provides.
The goal of building a new cloud-native application is to take advantage of the capabilities and features of cloud platforms, such as automatic scaling, load balancing, and multi-region deployment. This approach generally includes the use of cloud-native technologies such as containerization, serverless functions, and microservices.
The main benefit of building a new cloud-native application is that it allows organizations to create a system that is fully optimized for the cloud and takes full advantage of cloud-native technologies, such as scalability and cost-effectiveness. This method is best for organizations that are starting from scratch, or for organizations that want to create a new application that is fully optimized for cloud environments, either as a replacement or an addition to their current systems.
However, building a new cloud-native application can be a significant undertaking and requires a dedicated team of experts and resources. It also requires a significant investment of time, effort, and money and may also lead to a delay in the return on investment (ROI) if not executed properly. It’s important to have a clear plan and a team of experts, such as Proactive Logic Consulting Inc., to guide you through the process, mitigate the risks and help you create a successful cloud-native application.
