With the advent of cloud technology and its widespread popularity, more and more companies are migrating their services and apps to the cloud every day. While the benefits associated with cloud migration are many, it can be challenging at the start. We help you face this challenge by creating an incremental plan and making the change to cloud services with confidence.
If done right, migration to the cloud can benefit tremendously. Cloud migration is the process of moving your data, applications and other components inside your organisation to a cloud-based structure.
When you talk about cloud, the leading cloud providers like Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS and Google Cloud Platform come into mind. At Denizon, we provide cloud-neutral services that integrate with the leading cloud-based solutions with ease.
WHY MIGRATE TO THE CLOUD?
Many organisations are held back in terms of growth and scalability because of their inability to manage and maintain their growing information infrastructure.
Moving to the cloud however ensures lower upfront costs, scalability, and expansion to new geographies. Read on to find the advantages of migrating to the cloud:
EFFICIENT TEAM COLLABORATION
Migrating to the cloud improves operational efficiency. Working in the cloud removes region specific dependencies thus making teams more productive, collaborative and efficient.
The time for procuring new storage space is reduced to a matter of hours or a few days with migration to the cloud. This improves the agility of the system in this rapidly changing technological world.
Cloud packages offer several useful features like automatic logging, continuous deployment, disaster recovery, and monitoring. These bundled services offer extra functionalities over your existing services.
Cloud solutions usually have robust security programs. We help optimise this security by providing features like visibility and security analytics in your cloud environment.
The cost of services in the cloud is reduced in comparison to bare-metal deployments. You can use a pay-as-you-use model which provides flexibility to counter seasonal demands. You can easily scale up your storage without having to procure new servers and keep it idle for prolonged periods of time.
Cloud environments usually offer a no downtime promise, thus increasing resource availability. This leads to customer satisfaction and better asset utilisation in the long run.
Server updates are rolled out regularly in cloud services. This leads to automatic security updates and feature updates at the customer end. This further leads to faster deployment time.
Moving to the cloud essentially means that you reduce the number of data centers that your company needs. This leads to an overall reduced footprint.
HOW CAN WE MAKE YOUR CLOUD MIGRATION SPEEDY AND EFFICIENT?
WE HELP YOU WITH:
✓ Developing a migration strategy
✓ Deciding which apps to migrate and which to keep native
✓ Creating a cloud migration checklist
✓ Preparing for Audit
✓ Keeping compliance in mind
DEVELOPING A MIGRATION STRATEGY
Denizon accelerates and simplifies migration using a flexible platform. We strategise your cloud migration by utilising the philosophies of Gartner’s 5R strategy for cloud migration. Garter’s 5Rs are great starting points for deciding on a cloud migration strategy especially suited for you:
DECIDING WHICH APPS TO MIGRATE AND WHICH TO KEEP NATIVE
We help you decide which applications you should keep in-house and those you should migrate to the cloud. Some applications can have special needs inside your organisation and may contain databases and features that are required for internal processes.
Some apps, on the other hand, need to be dragged and dropped into a cloud architecture for easier disaster recovery, administrative advantages, reduction in geographic dependencies, faster deployment, and reduced costs.
The consideration, in this case, however, is the huge amount of rework required to package old applications into the cloud. Moving applications into the cloud also require the expertise of highly skilled software engineers who understand the technical interactions that take place in a cloud environment. This is where we come into the equation. We provide full-fledged support to migrate your applications to the cloud.
CREATING A CLOUD MIGRATION CHECKLIST
Denizon also help you to create your cloud migration checklist before you get started. The checklist illustrated below gives you a basic idea about what you need to do before deciding to move to the cloud:
PREPARING FOR AUDIT
Another benefit of initiating cloud migration with us is that we help you plan and prep in advance to make complying with audits much simpler.
Remember that all interactions and every instance of traffic hitting your site must be reacted, analysed and logged. Any string of data can have implications for your business. You can have terabytes of data that can range from threat detection, intrusion attempts, anomalies to security intrusion attempts and traffic history.
Analysing all this raw data can be an intimidating and tiresome process. Preparing for audit by using log analysis solutions that assist with compliance can be a smart investment. We help you determine the best solution that analyses and prepares your auditing needs.
With Denizon, cloud migration is easy. We help your enterprise accelerate the process of creating a cloud strategy and deploying it efficiently and rapidly. We have a next-generation data analytics platform and a team of experts who understand the ins and outs of cloud migration. After deploying your solution to the cloud, we help in:
We help you identify the risks and threats to your cloud environment by carrying out regular security analytics.
INTELLIGENT ANOMALY DETECTION
Our built-in advanced analytics helps intelligently detect anomalies in your cloud infrastructure.
We provide a unified platform to store metrics and logs that help you analyse data, monitor apps and perform root cause analysis.
To support rapid growth, we offer easy scaling capabilities.
