Azure Cloud Migration FAQs

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform, similar to Google Cloud or the iCloud. It is a collection of large servers, and includes Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Managed Database Capabilities.

Essentially, the Azure Cloud is a set of physical servers in one or multiple datacentres that customers can access remotely. It can be used for analytics, virtual computing, storage, networking, or to replace or supplement your on-site servers.

Azure relies on a technology called Virtualisation – servers, storage, physical hardware or data centre resources are migrated to the Azure Cloud and are available virtually, accessible from wherever you and your employees are.

The Azure Cloud has a wide range of services available for deploying, building, and managing apps. Here are a few of the most popular:

  • Virtual Machines – create a Windows or Linux virtual machine almost instantaneously
  • Azure DevOps – great for collaboration and leveraging agile tools to plan, monitor and discuss work between teams
  • Azure Cosmos DB – a fully managed, serverless NoSQL database for high-performance applications of any size or scale
  • Azure Active Directory – a cloud-based access management service that helps your employees access external resources, such as Microsoft 365 and other SaaS applications

API Management – a central interface to create, provision and manage API for web and cloud applications and services

Timeframes for migration to the Azure cloud will differ by company, but we aim to have the actual migration complete within a 12-hour period. However, the whole process will likely take longer than this as we need to account for planning and review time.

Your 777 Networks Azure cloud migration expert will always be on hand to help you plan the cloud migration process, but the process will usually include:

  • Identify your lead migration architect, or hire cloud migration experts to help you effectively plan and execute migration to the Azure cloud
  • Decide if you need a shallow cloud migration or a deep cloud migration
  • Decide if you need single cloud migration or multi-cloud migration
  • Establish your Azure cloud KPIs
  • Establish performance baselines
  • Prioritise the components of your migration
  • Perform any necessary refactoring
  • Create a data migration plan
  • Switch over production
  • Review the application and resource allocation

We’re sure you’ve already heard about all of the great benefits of migrating to the cloud, but what about Azure, specifically? Here are just some of the many great benefits of Azure cloud migration:

  • Disaster recovery
  • Security
  • Agility
  • Flexibility
  • Azure is fast
  • Compliance with local regulations
  • Work wherever, whenever with Microsoft’s global reach
  • Azure has over 600 services, so whatever programmes and applications your business uses day to day can be managed via the Azure platform
