Business Cloud Migration Providers

Cloud Migration Services

Cloud Migration is becoming more relevant in this day and age due to the fact that more businesses are taking advantage of remote and home working for their employees. The problem we’ve found is that effective business cloud migration providers are hard to come by. That’s where we come in. Not only do we have a solution to your problems, we’ve had experience with countless other businesses of moving from server to cloud based systems.

So, what is cloud migration?

Simply put, cloud migration is usually the action of moving data and other elements of a business from their own physical servers onto a 24/7 server accessible from most parts of the world. Cloud migration can also be done cloud-to-cloud but this is not as common. Most businesses are looking for “move server to cloud” services.

777Networks – Cloud Migration Providers

We are business cloud migration providers, with a main goal of helping your business, big or small, move from server to the cloud. Typically, businesses will operate several systems to keep everything running smoothly. Because of these intricacies and links between modern business systems it is very easy to see why the prospect of migrating to the cloud would seem daunting, complex, or too difficult to even cost, let alone achieve. You might even be worried about losing data or files – don’t be.

Some business owners may even have been actively discouraged by vendors or support partners from attempting any form of cloud computer systems migration because they themselves don’t actually have the skills necessary to achieve it and therefore for that particular system it has already been written off as a total non-starter project.

Because of the restrictions and measures needed to keep safe yet keep operating during the recent outbreak of COVID-19 / Coronavirus, many businesses have really struggled to keep functioning as normal with the traditional computer systems operating out of their normal office spaces.

What can we do for your business?

The great news is that almost every computer system can be moved into the cloud one way or another. Not only that, business cloud migration can be done relatively quickly, easily and cost effectively even if the business has old legacy systems still in use or many other issues they may see as a problem.

We will carry out a full evaluation of the entire computer network and computer systems infrastructure taking into account any existing Servers, Computers, Firewalls, Telephony and Business Applications such as Finance/Accounting Systems, Payroll or CRM databases or custom software and then work out a plan for moving to the cloud, custom built for your organisation.

Cloud Migration FAQs

There are 4 main types of cloud migration, each used based on the individual needs of a company, and the way that different companies want to use the cloud in order to accomplish their goals. These 4 types of cloud migration are:

 

  • Lift and shift

Lift and shift migration provides the same software that your company already uses, but is hosted in the cloud, rather than locally. This is the fastest method of migration as it simply moves the code to a new location. The software should work exactly as before, with minimal disruption and involvement. 

  • Software as a Service (SaaS)

SaaS is the process of outsourcing applications to a cloud service company that specialises in the management of those applications, for example, email. Switching to SaaS frees up employees to focus more on key tasks and operations, and also means that few licenses are required for business tools.

  • Application Refactoring

Application refactoring is a low-risk migration where organisations can replicate legacy applications whole, and intact, onto a cloud platform. This provides benefits of agility and speed, whilst also allowing those legacy applications to run parallel whilst new applications are being developed. 

  • Replatforming

Replatforming is for businesses that want to embrace all of the possibilities that come with cloud migration. It involves replacing the application at the code level in order to redevelop it to be cloud-native. This usually means a complete rewrite of the code, and as such can take time and money to do it right. However, the benefits of re-platforming mean that a business’ core competencies can be scalable, elastic, robust, resilient, and available. 

There are many benefits in migrating to the cloud, namely productivity, agility, and flexibility. Other benefits of cloud migration include:

  • Scalability
  • Ability to innovate faster
  • Reduction in costs
  • Simplified management and monitoring
  • Enhanced security
  • Backup recovery

When migrating to the Azure cloud, we recommend a 4 step process;

  • Discover: Identify our software, workload, and processes that you want to migrate. This can be a long and tedious process, but it is essential for a smooth migration. 
  • Assess: Categorize software, workload, and processes, and determine your requirements and priorities.
  • Target: Identify destinations for each workload/process and map out how your servers are going to be migrated. Consider factors such as speed, ease, cost, and functionality here.
  • Migrate: Perform the migration
