EA Team has a standardized Cloud framework that will ensure business adoption through a process driven move to cloud for long-term success. Our framework for migration comprises of 4 phases with automation and analytics engine at every stage of the migration lifecycle.
We will leverage cloud migration tools available from our strategic partners to migrate workloads from On-premise to cloud using the best feasible methods including P2C, V2C, I2C or by creating customized templates for provisioning & migration workflow to automate the entire process. Data migration would be performed over the WAN/Internet for small to medium workloads and for workloads which have large data sets attached, we will leverage cloud service provider options like ship your device, storage gateways, and cloud exchange platform.
After application complexity and interdependencies are determined, services will be grouped together in Migration Waves. Some characteristics that determine the groupings include:
- Dependent applications and interfaces
- Services that have similar business or stakeholder groups
- Services with similar levels of complexity for migration
- Availability of application users to support migration testing
- Application roadmaps and quick wins
EATEAM will build the foundational services like AD, DNS, FW services along with required security configurations before migrating any workloads to Cloud.
Integrated services will be grouped together in Migration Packages/Baskets, and a high-level schedule will indicate Migration Waves. The most critical applications are scheduled first, based on available migration windows. The remaining Waves are scheduled around the critical applications.
The selection of target hosting platform for the applications must be done in a strategic and methodical manner. Enterprise applications must be thoroughly assessed to determine which workloads can benefit most from early migration to the cloud. Therefore, EA Team with its experience and expertise around such migration projects has designed a Cloud framework, which has automation and analytics driven approach to accelerate cloud migration across the enterprises
These four phases lays down the end-to-end journey of application migration project:
Phase 1 – The formal kick off of the project and collecting all of the required information from the customer’s environment
Phase 2 – We perform the application analysis based on best industry leading practices and create Move Groups for migration plans and timelines
Phase 3 – The actual Migration of applications to cloud using our industry leading “Factory Approach” and post migration activities
Overlay – Our migration factory sits across all of the phases as the governance layers to mitigate the risk, downtime, disruptions, cost, and duration of cloud migrations
