AWS Cloud Migration Services



Cloud migration comprises the process of moving an enterprise's assets such as applications, data, and other information from physical spaces to cloud environments. By promoting a reduction in operational costs, organizations will be able to enjoy a service tailored to their needs, thus benefiting from greater flexibility, availability, accessibility, and security in information management.

From the global and integrated incubation of projects, to the management and monitoring of their execution, we have the best Nearshoring solution in IT. We respond to different remote development needs of your technological products. In addition, Portugal is considered a privileged destination for the provision of this type of IT services, due to its multiple advantages.

What are the Benefits of Cloud Migration?

Reduces Data Centres

Traditional infrastructure is characterised by a large initial investment, followed by operational costs. Facilities, power, cooling, upgrades and repairs, equipment redundancy, and dedicated human resources are recurrent expenses, independent of the level of activity. In contrast, there are no investment costs in the AWS cloud. Following the "pay as you go" maxim, operating costs are solely dependent on the activity level. You only pay for what you use, and when you use it.

Reduces Operating Costs

With the migration of information to the cloud, it is possible to benefit from a dynamic escalation service, as more services are needed when the operation requires it and, in contrast, they also may be subject to reduction or removal when not needed. This reactive component allows you to cope with fluctuating organisational needs and thus balance costs as the use of resources in the AWS cloud automatically adjusts to needs, increasing or decreasing in real time. Therefore, there is no need to predict capacity, no resource saturation, and no wasted capacity.

Information security

A migration to the AWS cloud helps companies improve data accessibility and availability, while maintaining information security standards through constant updating and monitoring of security mechanisms. The AWS cloud advocates the use of encryption for both data transport and storage. The implemented architectures restrict accessibility to what is strictly necessary by minimising the points of failure. Continuous monitoring of resource usage combined with a versatile alarm mechanism enables the prevention and detection of intrusions.

Agile Infrastructure

Cloud migration services simplify the complexity of installation and configuration of physical infrastructure and network. On-site operations can take days, months, hours or minutes. In practice, it saves implementation and maintenance time and resources, which can be allocated to other business areas responsible for the growth of the operation.

Optimised Operational Efficiency

Work teams will experience new levels of productivity. With AWS cloud services, collaboration between teams is possible, and physical presence in a specific location will not be necessary to implement, update or correct a service or a machine, which is why it is a more flexible solution, since it allows the reduction or extinction of unnecessary tasks, freeing the work team for other tasks of greater value for the project.

Faster Implementation

Through information migration, you can implement applications and services faster than the traditional process involving the purchase of servers, installation of the operating system and their placement in a data centre. In contrast to cloud hosting, in the conventional data centre hosting model, IT teams are faced with the inevitability of predicting future needs. This forecasting exercise is a process that entails costs of unused resources or saturated resources. With AWS cloud migration services, resources automatically adjust to your company's needs, increasing or decreasing with the volume of demand.

HIGH AVAILABILITY

In the classic model, high availability is based on the redundancy of equipment or resources, with the inherent costs. In the AWS cloud model, the health status of resources is continuously monitored and they are automatically replaced in case of failure without interruption of services. Again, following the "pay as you go" philosophy, the replacement of a resource does not incur additional costs.

What are the Steps for an
AWS Cloud Migration


Assessment

Planning

Migration

Development

The first phase is carried out in close collaboration with the client, with the aim of identifying the assets, their importance, and form of use.

Once the assets are listed, a match is made with the services in the AWS cloud, in order to obtain the best savings, performance, availability, and security. It is usual at this stage to select a system and make a proof of concept in order to demonstrate to the customer the advantages of adopting the cloud.
A cloud migration plan is made according to the customer's needs, based on the best practices advocated by AWS in its "Well Architected Framework".
The plan sets out a schedule of tasks, lists those interested in each phase and defines metrics and/or objectives to achieve.

In cooperation with all stakeholders, migration is a rapid process that relies on AWS tools that enable a secure and verifiable transition of various assets into the cloud.

The cloud migration strategy is always aimed at the best cost/benefit ratio. In the exploration phase, improvement opportunities that may bring incremental benefits in cost reduction, performance improvements, availability or security are continuously evaluated and identified.

What are the Types of
Cloud Migration?

Migration to the cloud can be accomplished in several ways, ranging from migration of the basic infrastructure without any kind of changes to the applications, to projects involving changes in the application code.

The cloud allows several implementation modes in increasing degrees of abstraction, ranging from physical machines to serverless architectures. A higher degree of abstraction allows for a greater focus on the business and a smaller dependence on infrastructure, and greater gains in profitability, security, and availability. The degree of maturity of traditional "on premise" systems, together with the objectives to be achieved by adopting the cloud, condition the type of approaches to be implemented.

Rehost

This type of cloud migration allows information to be migrated quickly in its current state, without any kind of change in the code and, consequently, in the risk and cost that such changes may represent. Ideal for situations where a rapid migration is required.

Refactor

This migration strategy involves a few optimisations and changes to the cloud, employing a platform model as a PaaS - Product as a Service. In general, applications maintain their architecture and developers make the most of the potential to work in the cloud.

Revise

With a more meticulous and elaborate transition than the previous models, this cloud migration methodology involves possible changes in system architecture and in the application code itself. The goal is to implement the necessary changes in order to obtain maximum performance from a cloud collaboration.

Rebuild

Similar to the previous migration strategy type, this could prove to be a more time-consuming process, due to the possible need to rebuild the application basic codes, in favour of a greater performance and security when in the cloud.

Replace

This cloud data migration scenario is the one that represents the most information changes, since the applications are replaced by the SaaS - Software as a service model. One of the advantages of this migration strategy is the reduction of development costs.
