Cloud Migration Services

Cloud is one of the greatest opportunities for organizations today because of the cloud's agility, scalability, and sensible economics. Despite the obvious benefits it can still be intimidating to take private, public, and legacy IT environments and servers from the closet to the cloud. We will help you decide upon the right mix of virtualization, hybrid cloud, redundancy, co-location, and server configuration to bring your organization into the 2020's.

Platform Agnostic

We definitely have our favorites, but we're really agnostic when it comes to which cloud partner you use. We're comfortable in Azure, AWS, Rackspace, Google Cloud, Plexus Solutions, BlueHost, and many others. What's most important is that you settle on a cloud partner that gives you the flexibility to grow and scale at the pace the suits your business best.

Scale In The Cloud

There's no better place to scale than in the cloud because "bigger" isn't always "better" anymore. Instead, you can scale horizontally by using virtual machines. Set up correctly, this sort of scaling out can happen automagically. This small subset of resources has proven invaluable when building a scalable application:

  • Load Balancer: Load balancers are used to distribute network traffic between multiple instances so no single instance gets overwhelmed and fails. Load balancers use complicated algorithms to determine how to rotate traffic.
  • Content Delivery Network (CDN): CDN's are used when you deliver high volumes of content such as images and videos. They disperse your content to multiple locations called Point-of-Presence (or POPs) so the information travels the shortest possible distance each time. They also provide limited caching capabilities.
  • Caching: Caching dynamic data in memory is a great way to decrease latency by storing data as key-value pairs in memory. As you can serve cached data across multiple regions your users experience quicker load times and a superior experience.
  • Microservices & Containers: Microservices break applications into several smaller self-containing services that operate independently instead of relying on a single process to run an entire app. In this way, cloud resources can be allocated to where they're needed the most. Containers are another form of operating system virtualization and can be easily scaled as well.

Wherever You Are, We Can Help

It doesn't matter what state your current infrastructure is in, we can help you get it into the cloud. We'll create a watercolor diagram of your infrastructure to determine how and when to move each of your resources to the cloud and to decide the best type of cloud environment for your business (Public, Private, Hybrid Cloud). We'll create a migration strategy that will take into account security and compliance, software licensing needs, connectivity and redundancy requirements, and prepare your legacy application to operate efficiently in the cloud.
