Hybrid Cloud Migration

 

Migrating existing applications to the hybrid cloud can improve performance, provide immediate cost savings and create greater agility. SOFTEK makes the migration process simple, seamless and stress free, and uses a phased approach to ensure that business and compliance requirements are delivered, risks are mitigated and financial targets are met.

SOFTEK combines the Lift and Shift and Greenfield migration methodologies to create the ultimate solution for your existing environment and objectives. Lift and Shift requires limited configuration and is the fastest way to migrate to the cloud, and Greenfield offers complete customization, use of latest technologies, application updates and optimized performance.

A migration with SOFTEK is specifically designed to have little or no impact to ongoing operations.

SOFTEK’s Optimization Engagement

Phase 1 – Dynamic Uptime, Scaling and Scheduling
In a typical environment, a large amount of systems are used only during business hours, meaning that backend systems frequently sit idle, other than running monthly, quarterly or yearly batch functions. Phase 1 focuses on helping your company obtain the best ROI from your systems, 24/7/365.

Phase 2 – Leveraging Purchase Commitments
The majority of cloud platform providers offer large discounts for spending commitments-that is, a minimum amount of usage over a period of time. Understanding these models can be the difference between cloud-spend spiraling out of control and ensuring ROI.

Phase 3 – Right-Sizing and Feature Evolution
Many cloud infrastructures start out as “Lift and Shift” projects, where existing on-premises infrastructures are mapped to the cloud on an as-is basis. Although it can be done quickly, this approach can result in oversized and ineffective systems. Even if an infrastructure was perfectly sized at initial set-up, cloud platform providers are constantly updating features and offering performance enhancements.
