Migrate & Sustain your workloads on AWS

Migration Planning

Where we begin every cloud transformation is as unique as the company itself.  Some companies are looking to significantly reduce infrastructure costs.  Others are looking to increase speed and agility. Before we get into the details of how you should adopt the cloud, we first want to understand why.

Our engagements are designed to build a migration plan with these business objectives and ensure architecture artifacts that fits the design and workload rationalization. Our teams have experience delivering on a wide array of promises, so let’s partner together to make those promises a reality. 

Cloud Foundation

The foundation is critical to any transformation taking place.  With a migration plan in mind, we build out a scalable landing zone that is specifically designed to host your workloads by embracing Infrastructure-as-Code to build immutable environments. Key deliverables during this early phase in the journey can include designing account structures for cost visibility and separation of responsibilities, deploying your base networking layer, security, and DevOps pipelines.

Well-Architected Reviews

No matter where you are on your cloud journey, an AWS Well-Architected Review is a great way to confirm that you’re maximizing the value of your AWS investment. You’ll come away from your review knowing how closely you are following the Framework’s best practices. For any High Risk Items (HRIs) that are identified, we’ll help you close as many as possible, and provide actionable next steps to close any that remain. Simple as that.

Application-Driven Migrations

Now that we have the foundational elements of your cloud infrastructure built, we are ready to execute the plan to migrate workloads based on the rationalization exercise.  The public cloud offers unique services and capabilities to rethink how you approach your operations landscape as you migrate.  For that reason, we tend to embrace application based migrations as it puts your applications front and center.  

Companies that see the most value in moving to the public cloud are usually the ones that adopt these new capabilities and embrace new behaviors in their teams as they focus more on building solutions and less on maintaining infrastructure.  

Operational Excellence

As we analyze data for the applications that are now running in your automated cloud environment, we further tune your systems for performance, cost and operational efficiency.  This process involves making data driven decisions from your monitoring dashboards, aggregated log records and cost forecasting reports.  The outcome will not only result in immediate, tangible benefits – it will define a roadmap for continuous improvement your organization will build upon in the years to come.
