Worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is projected to grow 18.4% to total a value of $304.9 billion, according to Gartner.
Cloud migration is the process of shifting or moving your data, applications, and any other business entities from your organization’s on-premise infrastructure to a virtual network called the cloud. Organizations are increasingly shifting to the cloud environment. This acceleration to the cloud has resulted in companies wanting scalable, robust cloud models that provide cost efficiency and business continuity.

Planning and Assessment
Before making the shift, preparing and planning for migration is imperative. As your migration partner, we will assist you in planning and overseeing the end-to-end migration process. Whether it is taking technical decisions or planning the process of migration, Asoft experts will help you prepare for it.
- There are two ways of migrating to the cloud:
- Shallow Cloud Integration
In the shallow cloud integration method, you move your on-premise applications to the cloud with very limited changes to the servers in the cloud for the purpose of running your application. The shallow cloud integration method is also popularly known as the lift-and-shift method, because an application is lifted just as it is and shifted to the cloud.
- Deep Cloud Integration
In the deep cloud integration method, you take advantage of key cloud capabilities to modify your application during the migration process. This could include something as simple as dynamic load balancing or complex tasks like employing server less computing for only a part of the application
Choosing the Cloud Environment
Before making the shift to cloud, it is important to assess what kind of a cloud model would suit your business the best. There are two types of cloud models you can adopt—single cloud and multi-cloud environment.
Single Cloud Environment
To establish a single cloud environment, you will use a single cloud provider for all your applications. You can either use private or public cloud depending on your business’ requirements in the present and for the future.
Single cloud environments will allow your business to expand the number of virtualized servers as the business scales up and your needs grow.
In a multi-cloud environment, your organization will use multiple public cloud services from multiple cloud service providers. The different cloud models can be used for different tasks depending on your business’ requirements. This is beneficial because it reduces your dependency on any one provider, thereby increasing flexibility and decreasing costs.
- Based on your cloud requirements, we offer the following:
- IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service)
- PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service)
- SaaS (Software-as-a-Service)
- Storage, Information, Database, Integration, Process, Application, Management, Security, and Testing-as-a-service
Application Migration and Review
Planning the migration process plays a vital role in how smoothly it can be implemented. Depending on the size of your databases, applications, and other business elements you may need to use different processes for making the shift to the cloud.
For instance, you could simply copy and paste your data if you don’t have a lot to migrate. Alternatively, you may need to compress your data before migrating it if the workload is larger. You could also transfer it to a physical drive and send it to the provider to reduce your bandwidth costs.
One of the most important things to remember during the migration is ensuring that the data is secure. Asoft ensures that your data is protected at all times during and after the migration.
Once the migration is complete, we will also take care of resource optimization. Your cloud is optimized for dynamic resource allocation, which ensures that distributing resources to your application is effective.
- Security One of the obvious benefits of migrating to the cloud is that it is more secure than traditional on-premise networks. This is achieved by storing business information centrally, which offers better security when compared to your traditional data centers.
- Access your data anywhere, anytimeWhen your data is securely stored in the cloud, you can access it from anywhere and at anytime. This can be done regardless of what happens to your physical machinery. Migrating to the cloud would mean that all members of your organization will have access to necessary data and information from anywhere in the world, thereby enabling you to expand your operations and opportunities.
- ScalabilityShifting consumer demands pose a challenge for most companies to quickly upscale and adapt to evolving needs of their customers. With cloud migration, you have the ability to adapt and reshape your infrastructure to accommodate your customer requirements without being tied down by existing traditional systems and networks. The cloud provides the agility your organization needs to expand and scale up.
