Cloud Migration

Change is the only constant – so it is for your IT infrastructure too. Having to undergo a cloud migration is a complex process that has to be customized to address your technical, functional and operational needs of the organization. Cloud migration is the process of moving your digital business operations into the cloud. The term can also apply to the migrating of data and IT processes from one cloud to another.

Why Migrate to Cloud?

Organizations migrate to the cloud for several reasons but what held them back is the major challenge of growing their IT infrastructure in a cost-effective and secure way. Moving to the cloud adds value to their outlook. Here are a few benefits:


Whether it be employees or customers, anyone can access the cloud services and data from anywhere making the business easier to expand into new territories and lets your employees work flexibly. 


Cloud computing can help scale up workloads and attract larger users when in comparison to on-premises infrastructure. Databases, analytics grows with the growing business. The cloud services offer you the ability to expand the existing workspace or with the additional ones such that applications grow without impacting the ongoing performance. 


The cost for businesses is drastically reduced when compared to the amount they spend on IT operations as the cloud providers handle both maintenance and upgrades for you. This can help businesses focus on developing newer products or improving the existing ones.


Having your data stored centrally, letting the cloud to offer more security than the data centers. Cloud Service providers offer you the built-in features including security, updates on a periodic level. CloudifyOps helps in optimizing cloud security, giving access and visibility to users across the entire cloud environment. 


Migrating to the cloud enables businesses to improve their performance as well as improving the overall user experience of their customers. If an application or a website of an organization is hosted on the cloud data centers rather than in various on-premises serves then the data doesn’t have to travel far to reach the users. 

Cloud Migration Strategies

Gartners 5 R’s to decide on cloud migrating strategies:

  • Rehost

    Also known as lift and shift, it works just the way it sounds. This enables you to pick and drop your application in the new hosting environment without even modifying your app’s architecture. This means that you access the present data and redeploy them on the cloud servers. This benefits the new companies who are opting for cloud computing benefits from the speed of deployment without spending much time and money on planning for expansion.

  • Refactor

    Refactoring is re-imagining of how your application is architected and developed using cloud-native features. This feature enables you to leverage your business’s cloud capabilities which you couldn’t have achieved like serverless computing and much more. This strategy tends to be the most expensive one but it can turn to be the beneficial one provided you have a good product.

  • Replatform

    This step lets you make few cloud optimisations such that you attain a tangible benefit, but wherein you aren’t otherwise changing the core architecture of the application. This helps you reduce the amount of time spent on managing database.

  • Re-purchase

    This stage includes purchasing of a product or a service in order to incorporate a few changes in the cloud architecture. This migration can be implemented only if you already exist on the cloud and if you want to transit significant workloads.

  • Retire

    The main objective of this strategy is to identify the resources or IT assets that you wouldn’t require and could be removed without impacting much on your migration process.

  • Retain

    This strategies could be aligned with others such that optimal solution is attained. If you have identified and planned out your required resources and want to acquire those one by one then the first step towards it is looking out on what you already have. This helps you in retaining your assets because retention definitely saves your money.

There is no single cloud migration process that works for every organization, but the main implementation stages are similar for all organizations and industries:

  • define your strategy
  • make a plan
  • ready your organization
  • adopt the cloud
  • govern and manage your environment.
