Typical challenges that we see with cloud migration

Migrating applications hosted in your data center can be a daunting task. A lot of hidden issues and possible problems can emerge on this step. It certainly helps if you have taken the first step in implementing a private cloud solution. To do so, you can use one of the following technologies: VMware Cloud Foundation, OpenStack, or Azure Stack.

Key factors to consider when moving data to the cloud:

  • Mapping your organization roles and users from your directory services to the appropriate cloud identity access management roles and permissions. This allows for maintaining your security policies
  • Configuring the cloud provider’s virtual network to align with your current data center’s virtual network
  • Creating deployment templates that align with your data center’s service level agreements for high availability, disaster recovery, security, and performance. For example, setting up geographic replication between different data centers for a “platinum” level configuration for your mission-critical application
  • Updating your development and test procedures for integration and deployment to take advantage of manageability features like Azure Application Insights, AWS CloudTrail, and Google Stackdriver Monitoring
  • Identifying cloud services that would replace ones you may have built in-house for greater reliability and performance

Cloud migration for your applications

However, before you go too deep into the weeds, you’re going to need to understand the financial implications of migrating to the cloud. Here are some of the common challenges that we have seen helping our customers move to the cloud.

Title Challenge Benefit
Getting the best value from all the cloud migration options When migrating database servers to the Cloud, how do I get the best value from all the choices? Finding the best value in the cloud is a balancing act. You need to deeply consider the following questions:
  • How much do you want to support yourself or how much do you want managed support?
  • Are you planning to run lean or are you planning for periodic expansion?
  • Are you looking for a short-term commitment or could you improve pricing with a long-term commitment?
DB Best can help you answer these questions. We will evaluate your current environment and determine the most cost-effective cloud migration path. Finally, we will create a future-state architecture design for your cloud environment based on your needs.
Choosing which workloads to move to the cloud How can I determine which workloads to move to the cloud?

DB Best takes a data-centric approach to determine which workloads are most appropriate for the cloud. Our team starts with data collection which gives us a profile of each workload environment such as CPU, RAM, etc. We also gather performance metrics over a certain time using our agentless DBMSys software. Then we work with our customers to understand their business needs and restrictions of each workload to determine a list of potential candidates that can be moved to the cloud.

Best of all, the process works with on-premises solutions like Microsoft Sharepoint, Dynamics, and others that can't move to managed services due to unsupported features. We can recommend the appropriate virtual machine-based solution for Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud platforms optimized for cost and performance.
