Small or medium-sized businesses make up 75 percent of server migration and modernization revenue. Gartner predicts 90 percent of organizations will adopt hybrid infrastructure management by 2020. According to IDC, by 2021 spending on cloud services will exceed USD 530 billion.
Before you focus on defining your strategy it is helpful to understand at a high level what the migration process is. At a high level, it can be broken down into three key phases:
The assessment phase is where our team will use a mixture of software tools and LoadnCode consultation including best practices to discover what applications can be migrated, what their current configurations are, the people within your organization that will be impacted by the migration, as well as identify the dependencies of the application. The output of your assessment will include a comprehensive plan for what to do with the application and the expectations on availability and functionality.
The migration phase is when the recommendations in LoadnCode assessment plan are put into place. The following steps are usually taken.
Setup Azure subscriptions using best practices for security, connectivity, policies and general governance prior to migration to ensure your customers are using Azure correctly from the start.
Perform the migration using the prescribed method identified in the assessment plan: rehost, retire, replace, re architect or retain.
Evaluate and test to ensure the migrated application meets the criteria outlined in LoadnCode assessment plan.
In the optimization phase, you will use Azure security and management resources to govern, secure, and monitor your cloud applications in Azure. This is also the time for you to look for opportunities to optimize spending. Common tasks at this stage are:
Review Azure cost management to track spending and identify areas for cost savings.
Evaluate migrated applications for opportunities to right size over provisioned virtual machines and services.
Implement automation to resize or stop based on a utilization schedule.
Identify applications that could benefit from optimization with platform as a service (PaaS) services or containers.
