This migration is necessary for businesses that want to leverage the benefits of the cloud, such as increased agility, scalability, reliability, and security.
LEWISVILLE, TX, USA, September 22, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/: In today’s digital era, businesses need to constantly adapt and evolve in order to stay competitive. One of the key drivers of this evolution is cloud computing, which provides a scalable and cost-effective solution for businesses of all sizes. AWS (Amazon Web Services) is a leading provider in the cloud computing space, offering a wide range of services and features to help businesses transform and innovate.
Cloud migration refers to the process of moving an organisation’s workloads and applications from on-premises infrastructure to the AWS cloud. This migration is necessary for businesses that want to leverage the benefits of the cloud, such as increased agility, scalability, reliability, and security. When deciding to migrate to the AWS cloud, it’s important to choose the right migration strategy that aligns with your business objectives and requirements. Below are the six types of AWS migration strategies to consider:
1. Re-Hosting (lift and shift): This strategy involves moving applications from on-premises to the AWS cloud without making any changes to the architecture or code. It is a quick and low-risk approach for businesses looking to migrate their infrastructure to AWS rapidly.
2. Re-Platforming: With this strategy, businesses make minimal changes to their applications and infrastructure during the migration process. They take advantage of AWS services and features to optimise the application’s performance, scalability, and cost efficiency. This strategy offers a balance between speed and optimisation.
3. Re-Purchasing: Sometimes, it makes sense to replace existing applications with commercially available software or SaaS (Software as a Service) offerings available on the AWS Marketplace. This allows businesses to gain access to new features and reduce maintenance costs.
4. Re-Factoring (re-architecting): This strategy involves reimagining and redesigning applications to leverage cloud-native capabilities and services. It requires significant changes to the application’s architecture and code but results in improved scalability, performance, and cost effectiveness.
5. Retiring: Businesses may have legacy applications that are no longer necessary or relevant. Retiring these applications during migration can help streamline operations and reduce costs.
6. Retaining (revisit later): In some cases, businesses may decide to delay the migration of certain applications to AWS, either due to complexity, cost, or other priorities. This strategy involves revisiting those applications at a later stage and determining the best approach for migration.
