Database Migration to Google Cloud

Take advantage of Google Cloud Platform benefits, moving your workloads either to Compute Engine or Cloud Database.

Migration opportunities

Are you looking for a way to get better business value by utilizing the power of Google Cloud Platform? Our experienced team of over 450 certified developers can help you plan, design, and implement the migration process to finally get up to speed with GCP.

Trust ABCloudZ in database, application, and infrastructure migrations as well as cloud adoption. Our team delivered hundreds of successful “lift and shift” and modernization projects with customers worldwide across industries.

Moving your workloads to GCP, you can take advantage of a flexible and reliable infrastructure. Also, you can utilize a whole set of valuable cloud services to securely manage your data and build scalable applications.

The core advantages of the GCP platform usually include better pricing than competitors and tremendously fast data transfer speed. The latter is courtesy of Google’s private global fiber network. Other cloud providers also use this Google’s fiber network but for GCP it is a backbone.

Getting the best value from all the Google Cloud Platform migration options

Finding the best value in the Google Cloud Platform is a balancing act. Here are some key questions you need to ask yourself:

  • How much do you want to support yourself or how much do you want managed support?
  • Are you planning to run lean or are you planning for periodic expansion?
  • Are you looking for a short-term commitment or could you improve pricing with a long-term commitment?

ABCloudZ can help you evaluate your current environment. We then can determine the most cost-effective environment for your migration base on your needs. ABCloudZ knows the most efficient way to migrate to GCP.

Choosing which workloads to move to the Google Cloud Platform

We take a data-centric approach to determine which workloads are most appropriate for the Google Cloud Platform. We start with data collection that gives us a profile of each workload environment such as CPU, RAM, etc. ABCloudZ then gathers performance metrics over a period of time using our agentless in-house tools and scripts. We also work with our customers to understand the business needs and restrictions of each workload. This helps determine a list of potential candidates that can be moved to the cloud.

Migrating away from your current data solution

Traditionally, this means 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.
