5 steps to Cloud Migration with AWS

On-premise apps are all those which are owned by a business most of the time and are connected to one network.


On-premise apps are all those which are owned by a business most of the time and are connected to one network. Cloud-based applications may differ from those on premises. This is why the application has to undergo significant modifications before it is installed, and also the dependencies it needs to transfer to the cloud. Moving applications hosted on premises to cloud computing is now known as cloud migration. In the following Amazon Web Services Migration article will provide the main factors to consider about before transferring your app to Cloud. Find out about more about the best ways to make use of Amazon Web Services with the AWS Cloud migration Training.

Step 1: Assessment

The first step is to decide whether the application can be defined in the form of "cloud-ready". This is the time to determine whether the application could be used in conjunction with AWS-based services and also if we must make any necessary changes or modifications to the application to facilitate the switch to AWS. This is the initial step to evaluate the feasibility of this move as well as discover any loopholes that might be exploited to minimize the risk. It will also include a comprehensive financial analysis, which will allow us to establish TCO along with the cost savings which can be realized through the successful TCO reduction.

Step 2 : Implementation Change

In this stage of the process of transfer to the cloud, an app requires updating as well as undergo design and architectural modifications. This can be the longest as it can include several design and re-platforming processes in a restricted manner until the application is in the its desired level. This could include changes in the application's code modifications to the infrastructure or architecture changes, and so on and.

Step 3: Data Migration

Once the implementation has been completed, it's now time to transfer the static files along with tables and dependencies for databases to the appropriate AWS services. This could include moving the databases already being used (MySQL, Oracle, Sybase) to Amazon RDS/Aurora as well as well as moving the static file along with the dependencies on it into Amazon S3. This could be a long procedure, since older software can contain large amounts of data stored in their database. Once the cloud migration process has been completed, a analysis of the comparison is required to determine whether the information in an on-premise database inside Amazon RDS and Amazon RDS is the same.

Step 4: Application Migration

The process involves the transfer of the app , and the configuration of it to Amazon services such as EBS and EBS. This includes assigning load balancers to them and ensuring they are able to handle the load. If the application is containerized, it is necessary to enter it into ECR before moving it to AWS Fargate.

Phase 5 Operate, Test and Test

This is the primary phase of validation, during which we evaluate the software to ensure that they function flawlessly . This is the stage where we evaluate the performance of cloud-based software versus version on premises to ensure whether the cloud-based change was successful.

If you're looking to transfer an application running on your premises to AWS it is required to adhere to these five steps. Certain steps are time-consuming, or repetitive, which can lead to fail. If we are required to handle multiple applications on our premises the risks and time can be a substantial amount.

What can we do to degrate the amount of time and effort needed to complete these tasks employing an automation system can finish this task in a short period of time and without effort from us? We at Hexaware we've introduced Amaze(tm) to assist with the development of applications. It's an enterprise cloud-based adoption set of applications that simplify these steps and to speed up the process of cloud migration for applications.
