Migrating apps and services to the cloud can be challenging. However, by using various technologies and the expertise of our cloud computing team, we can make the process of cloud migration very simple.
Why should you migrate your business to the Cloud?
Through Cloud migration, our prime goal is to host your apps and services in the best possible IT environment where you can run them with full efficiency without having to worry about factors like security and budget.
Types of Cloud Migration
At Softobiz, we offer various types of approaches for migrating to the Cloud like Lift and Shift, Shift to SaaS, Application Refactoring, and Re-platforming.
1. Lift and Shift
It’s the most traditional approach for migrating to the cloud. The idea is simple. Just lift an app from its present environment and shift it to the cloud.
2. Shift to SaaS
In this approach, we outsource the app or service to a cloud service company that specializes in managing them.
3. Application Re-factoring
The process involves replicating the legacy apps and then shifting them on to the cloud platform.
The process involves developing the app from scratch on the cloud.
Based on our requirements and the conditions we’re facing; we can choose any of these cloud migration strategies.
Process of Migrating to the Cloud
The process of cloud migration differs according to your requirements. Despite this, some steps remain the same for instance evaluating performance and security requirements, choosing a cloud provider, calculating costs, and making necessary changes.
We also face several challenges while migrating to the cloud like data integrity, data security, business continuity, data & application portability, and interoperability. Keeping all these things in mind, we devise a cloud strategy that works best for you.
