Getting the best value from all the AWS Migration options
Finding the best value in Amazon Web Services is a balancing act. Your answers to the following questions will help in this effort:
ABCloudz can help you evaluate your current environment and determine the most cost effective environment for your migration based on your needs.
Choosing which workloads to move to AWS
We take a data-centric approach to determine which workloads are most appropriate for AWS. We start with collecting data which gives us a profile for each workload environment such as CPU and RAM. We also gather performance metrics over a period of time using our in-house tools. We also 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.
Migrating away from your current data solution
Traditionally, this insinuates a switch from one data platform to another. However, just switching the nameplate on the back end database server may not be the best solution. Some data patterns and use cases may have a better fit for a NoSQL or Data Lake solution.
ABCloudz Architects are trained to spot these patterns and discuss with the customer another approach that may be a better fit or be able to leverage new technology such as IoT devices.

Case study: fast and error-free migration to the AWS cloud
A major data processing company has been supporting an on-premises system with an application that handles document flow from several local scanners. They needed to move from their current data center so they partnered with ABCloudz to migrate the database to the cloud and to modify the application to connect to the cloud.
After assessing their system and choosing the optimal migration strategy we performed lift-and-shift migration of their Oracle database to the newly provisioned AWS cloud. As a result, we delivered a cost and time-effective solution and added monitoring and disaster recovery resiliency as well.
