Decoding the Types of Migration Strategies for Each Application to Cloud

When it comes to seamless migration of your application to Azure, Foghorn has you covered.

Application Migration Models
To ensure a smooth migration to the cloud, you can count on two models:
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

Database Migration to Azure Cloud (graphic)
Analyzing your on-premises SQL Server instance is essential for a smooth transition to Azure SQL database. A database assessment can be your best bet to identify blocking issues. This assessment can provide guidance to resolve compatibility issues, as well as partially supported or unsupported features.

Here’s how to migrate to Azure:

A Solid Migration Strategy
Based on your migration needs, you can opt for:

> Lift-Shift Strategy If you wish to migrate quickly and lower overall costs, this strategy is ideal.
> Repackaging Strategy This strategy is best suited for moving an application with a few code changes without a complete overhaul. If you wish to improve infrastructure or rearchitect your apps inAzure, this strategy can be your best bet.

Migration Scope Definition
Analyze your on-premises environment to get insights into your dependencies using automated cloud migration tools.

Landing Zones Best Practices for Workloads
Avoid governance issues pre and post-migration by using landing zone best practices.

Use of Appropriate Azure Storage Types
Storage costs rise as you grow. To manage them, it is key to know the different Azure storage types. Based on this, choose the storage account type that matches the application’s performance and replication requirements

Assess Apps, Databases, and Infrastructure

The initial step for the application migration strategy is to evaluate the total cost of ownership (TCO) for Azure Cloud as compared to running the applications from on-premise data centers.

FH ICONS Databa es, and Infrastructure

Discover: Get insights into dependencies with automated cloud migration tools. Create an inventory of infrastructure and evaluate on-premise environments.

Map: Outline servers as per their suitability to on-premise applications. Categorize them in a way that represents relevant applications. This gives an overview of apps and their dependencies on one another.

Evaluate: After categorizing applications, we identify which migration strategy best fits them. We then evaluate the cost and select the ideal fit.

Migrate and Modernize

Drive the effective implementation of a cloud strategy by migrating workloads. For this, we follow four sub-steps:
FH ICONS Rehost

Rehost

FH ICONS Revise

Revise

FH ICONS refactor

Refactor

FH ICONS rebuild

Rebuild

Rehost
Move applications from an on-premise environment to the cloud without making any changes to the underlying application.

Revise Move an application to Azure by altering the code currently in place

Refactor
Revamp the code of the application and move it to a cloud-native architecture.

Rebuild
Build new applications from scratch using the
Azure Platform.

Optimize

To manage and optimize your cloud environments, we perform an extensive analysis to ensure cost-efficiency and reduced spend. These goals are met by using Azure Cost Management and Azure Hybrid Benefit.
