Cloud Migration & Optimization

Cloud Migration 

We help customers move their existing workloads and services from their existing DCs to the cloud, or from one cloud provider to another. The objective of the service is to seamlessly migrate the existing infrastructure of the customer to the cloud that will significantly reduce the total cost of ownership and increase performance. The key objective is to keep the downtime minimal while migrating.

Cloud Optimization

The cloud offers organizations unlimited scalability and lowers IT costs by only charging for the resources used. But the truth about most popular cloud service pricing is that customers are charged for the resources they order irrespective of whether they use them or not. In a recent Gartner report, analysts Brandon Medford and Craig Lowery estimate that as much as 70% of cloud costs are wasted. Fortunately, there are best practices available for cloud cost optimization. We provide specialized cloud optimization services. Cloud optimization is the process of reducing your overall cloud spend by identifying mismanaged resources, eliminating waste, reserving capacity for higher discounts, and right-sizing computing services to scale.

We make sure that our customers are secure and cost-optimized using better cloud and infrastructure planning and adaptation. Our team has experience with all major cloud service providers like

  • AWS, Azure, Google, Digital Ocean, Rackspace & Alibaba

Cloud Optimization process consists of 3 stages.

Non-Intrusive Analysis:- Unlike any other service provider, we don’t ask for access at any level to your existing environment – be it for cloud optimization or On-Prem to cloud migration. Instead what we require is the following:-

  • For Cloud – We require the last 2 or 3 month’s billing details for your existing cloud. Based on this information we will let the customer know the level of optimization that we can provide.
  • For On-Prem   -We ask for the physical and logical network diagram of the customer. This should include the current sizing and load of the existing hardware.

Re-Architecting the Solution:- This is the stage where our team will create a draft of the proposed solution with the approximate cost savings and present it to the customer. Customers can evaluate and decide if they want to move to the next phase.

Implementation:- Our team will fine-tune the Cloud architecture to come up with a low-level architecture diagram. Once the HLD and LLD are approved, we start the implementation process. The strategy for implementation is generally done using the Blue-Green-Model so that the downtime can be kept either to zero or near zero. Once the implementation is over, we monitor the setup for at least a month for usage patterns to help adjust the autoscale policies and reserved Instances.
