Why Migrate?

You can migrate any workload – applications, websites, databases, storage, physical or virtual servers – and even entire data centers from an on-premise environment, hosting facility, or other public cloud to AWS. Every step along the way, you can leverage AWS’s years of experience to build your organizational, operational, and technical capabilities, so that you can gain business benefits faster.

Our 7 steps

To a successful migration 

Our proven migration process will minimize the risk and make your migration journey hassle-free. We work with our customers by conducting a cloud readiness assessment to identify applications that should, or could, be migrated to the cloud. We will assist in evaluating workloads with the AWS migration strategy best suited.

Our team of experts will manage your workload migration, after which we will conduct a well-architected review and remediate any high-risk issues identified.

Start with a single, meaningful workload to gain confidence in the AWS offering, and to assess cost-effectiveness and manageability. We will assist in cut-over and go-live procedures, and validate workloads during the commissioning process.
