Performing a Cloud Migration requires a well thought out plan, analysis and strategy for execution. Oftentimes our clients have legacy systems and don’t have the talent or bandwidth to perform their own migration. To ensure success, Sonora has created the following stages for our cloud migrations:
Asses and Plan
- Analysis of our client’s existing infrastructure
- Assessing the complexities and risks involved
- Determining a cloud service provider who is appropriate for our client’s business
- Determining tools and technology to improve the existing environment
- Design an architecture which includes fault tolerance and disaster recovery options
- Determine what, how and where it should be migrated
- Plan the migration of business processes, applications, and databases in different phases
- Estimation of time required for each migration
- Notiﬁcation of downtime if needed
- Building of new automated process to streamline workloads
- Non-automated production environment set-up
- Setting up data storage, fault tolerance, and disaster recovery
- Constant updating of conﬁgurations and DNS records
Types of Migrations
- Infrastructure Migration – We offer complete infrastructure migration services to the cloud by partnering with leading cloud providers like Microsoft, AWS, and Google.
- Application Migration – Move to the cloud with Sonora’s application migration services that include testing, maintenance, quality assurance processes.
- Platform Migration – With vast experience in platform migration services, we develop and migrate applications across a wide range of leading platforms.
- Data Migration – We use proven standardized processes and reusable platforms for securely migrating the databases.
Prompt Monitoring And Support
- Continuous monitoring to detect any anomalies in performance, response time, load, etc.
A few reasons why our clients perform migrations:
– To delegate security responsibilities to another entity, like AWS
– To save time and money on maintenance (pay only for what you are using)
– To ensure scalability and flexibility (scale as you go based on the demand of the users)
– To save on development times – use already built platforms from 3rd parties or the cloud provider themselves
– To ensure high availability and uptimes – guaranteed by the cloud service provider
