Migrating to the cloud: Potential benefits, likely challenges
Migrating to the cloud promises a number of benefits: freeing up IT resources, increasing speed and agility, and reducing cost. Yet most organisations struggle to migrate, minimising any chance to obtain these benefits. The problem? Companies don’t have a systematic approach for something they’ve never done.
That’s where Fusion comes in. Leveraging our partnerships with AWS, the largest public cloud provider in the world, and BMC Software, the leader in IT service and operations management, we bring successful cloud migration to you.
Cloud Migration as a Service is a holistic and dependable cloud migration system that revolutionises enterprise cloud migration. Migration as a Service is a four-step process that’s critical to your organisation in two key ways:
- Quickly know your cloud migration costs. We assess your cost of moving to the cloud in approximately two weeks—using real calculations, not “estimates”—so you can decide quickly if this is the best move for your organisation.
- Right-size and rearchitect workloads for optimisation. We optimise cloud sizing based on real capacity. No assumptions, no what ifs. By right-sizing and rearchitecting, you’ll use only the compute power you need, saving costs otherwise wasted on legacy applications.
Cloud Migration & Optimisation in 4 Steps
Using automation and intelligent discovery, planning, and execution tools, Cloud Migration as a Service right-sizes your assets and optimises cloud utility to maximise efficiency and control cloud costs.
Cloud Migration as a Service is a four-step process:
- Migration Discovery and Assessment understands historical consumption and asset relationships and dependencies.
- Migration Planning and Modelling prioritises applications and identifies rightsizing opportunities.
- Migration Execution customises your migration plan and uses automation, migration tools, and AWS CloudEndure Migration to execute the migration and post-migration viability tests.
- Post-Migration Optimisation provides ongoing visibility into your cloud consumption, ensuring financial compliance, avoiding surprise costs, and finding additional opportunities that align with AWS Well-Architected.
