CLOUD MIGRATION

The New Game Changer. How And Where To Start?

Home-Cloud Migration

Organizations that harness data, the cloud, and AI out perform

Cloud technologies are at the center of the digital transformation revolution. Companies embracing digital transformation must embrace the cloud to be successful.

There are many advantages to adopting the cloud. Businesses moving to the cloud do so for a range of motivations, seeking a variety of benefits. These benefits fall into four categories: cost, agility, service quality, and new scenarios.

The most common service offered is ‘lift and shift’ migrations through our Azure infrastructure services (IaaS). This focuses on cost reduction by reducing or removing the dependency on on-premises infrastructure. Within this area, a range of complementary services can be offered, such as migration assessments and networking services.

Choose the Right Cloud Platform

  • There are very few tier-1 service provider are present in the cloud infrastructure as service industry – Namely Azure, Amazon and Google. We help you to identify the right provider based on your core IT needs. We build out the appropriate services needed and respective pricing.

Check for Hardware Obsolescence

  • Many existing network devices employ hardware acceleration to power through heavy traffic. Not all simulated devices—like virtual routers, switches, and load balancers—currently support hardware acceleration in the cloud. Audit your traffic and processor demands and trends before assuming virtual replacement devices will perform all the duties of existing native hardware.

Research Licensing Issues

  • Native networking environments of yesterday usually licensed software by the user, the device, or by enterprise. But the cloud changes these variables, hosting apps on machines with adjustable virtual processor counts and adding the ability to scale application services and servers. Factoring this impact on your licensing model could save huge sums of money.

Mind Your SSLs and Certificates

  • Secure socket layer certificates operate with precision to verify data routes and security. Changing a host location can throw your SSLs off track. It’s best to review where and how you use SSLs and prepare to renew or replace them before going live from a new hybrid cloud environment. Companies like DigiCert offer insight tools to assess your SSL chain.

Audit IP Addresses

  • IP addresses, usually statically or dynamically assigned and then forgotten about, take on another layer of challenge in the cloud. Old DHCP scopes and static addresses will likely change when moving to a cloud infrastructure, creating the need for a thorough IP address relationship audit prior to the move so that dependent sockets won’t be broken on migration.

Evaluate Access Control List Dependencies

  • An access control list (ACL) regulates user and service activity across your network. As with IP addresses, migration will impact ACL dependencies. Customer traffic and system activities like backups, hypervisors, and monitoring will need to be reviewed for a shift to a full or hybrid cloud infrastructure to make sure everyone and everything can reach what it has to in the new design.

Why do Enterprises hold back on Cloud Strategy?

One of the most common worries that companies have when migrating to the cloud is the fear of entrusting your company’s data with a third party. Some companies think that they would be better off securing their own data on premises on their own servers. However this could not be further from the truth. Unless you spend heavily on security which in turn gives additional expenses and complications, you aren’t going to beat the security of Microsoft or Amazon. Plus if its good enough for the Department of Defence, then it should be good enough for you!

One big worry that companies have is not being able to access their data when they partner with a third-party vendor. In today’s busy world if you encounter even an hour of downtime with your services, it can make a huge dent in your finances as well as your relationship with your customers. Cloud Service providers work to make sure that you have control of your data 24/7. You still have the same access to your data and still decides how your data will be secured, how you want to access it, what applications you want to use and so on.

Some businesses are getting hampered by the performance of their legacy technology, unable to keep up with the rapid demands of today’s clientele and challenges. It’s therefore understandable that some businesses would want to remain faithful to their legacy technologies or be afraid that switching to the cloud would only exacerbate their problems. With the changing technological trends and needing to keep up with their customers’ needs however, the cloud is the only way forward for businesses to keep up in today’s world.

No one wants to pay more than they have to. That is true even when moving into the cloud. However, nowadays, the industry standard is to offer customers a ‘pay-as-you-go’ payment model. Therefore, apart from installation and service costs, the customer only pays for the features that they have used. Many businesses are wary to invest in cloud computing even though they are far less expensive and easier to deploy than the on premises option.

Cloud migration and integration can be a complicated venture for your company. Migrating your on-premises data to the cloud without any hiccups and then figuring out the different applications and programs that your cloud vendor offers that would be the best for your company. If you’re overwhelmed, you’re not alone. That’s why its important to partner with a cloud service provider like Korcomptenz to help guide your cloud implementation.

Why Migrate to the Cloud?

Organizations – SMBs and Enterprises alike, have traditionally been held back to keep up to the growing demands of IT infrastructure due to the capital cost and man power required to setup, manage and maintenance needs. However, moving to the cloud adds tangible value to their outlook. More and more companies are moving their critical application services to the cloud to make them available to their customers and vendors demands without needing huge IT Budgets. With more and more easy and better mobile internet availability, a high availability of your services is a must and directly effects your edge over your competitors and revenue.

Agility and speed

With the cloud, procurement of new inventory and storage space is reduced to a matter of days or even hours, giving businesses the agility to respond to a rapidly changing environment.

Operational efficiency

The simplicity in cloud solutions makes teams more productive. In distributed teams, the cloud removes region-specific dependencies, creating a collaborative team setting.

Security

Most popular cloud solutions have robust built-in security programs. A MSP (hyperlink to the MSP Blog) can help optimize cloud security, providing security analytics and visibility across the entire cloud environment.

Cost savings

At large volumes, the unit price of servers comes down noticeably in comparison with native data centers. The pay-as-you-use model provides the flexibility that companies seek to scale up or down as required.
