Cloud Migration: Seamless transition to cloud environments for enhanced scalability and efficiency.

Cloud Migration

Guaranteeing a Smooth Transition to the Cloud Without Disrupting Business

Business ScenarioOur ApproachBenefits

A successful migration is a competitive advantage for organisations since it allows a faster capacity to adapt to business demands in real-time.

Business Scenario

According to Gartner Research, more than 70% of organisations have started the migration of at least a part of their workloads to the cloud.

To guarantee a successful migration, each migration process must be considered unique, with complexity depending directly on the total number of resources in each project’s scope. The range of systems and platforms that can be migrated to the cloud is vast, with most of them already offering cloud-native versions.

Even if organisations decide to move to the cloud to benefit from it rapidly, a successful migration requires careful planning. IT Leaders’ main challenge is to define the starting point or understand the critical approach vectors, stages, technology, security policies, and the transformation required to garner the best from cloud provider services

The future is multi-cloud, so organisations also need to consider which is the right cloud to use based on the workloads they want to migrate, although not all workloads are advised to move to the cloud – this is where a hybrid cloud approach is required.

Our Approach

How Celfocus is helping Enterprises with Cloud Migration

IT leaders need to start with three basic questions: What will be migrated? Why is it being migrated? And how will the migration be executed? Celfocus created a Migration Framework that allows clients to identify the best strategy and capture the value of cloud migration.

Cloud migration will not be the same for everyone, for there are as many processes as there are systems. Nevertheless, there are three major approach categories:

1. A direct lift and shift transition from traditional on-premise infrastructure to cloud equivalent structures.

2. A transition to cloud-based architecture with the required adjustments and optimisations to use the improved cloud features.

3. A complete transformation to cloud-based architecture with full refactoring to make the most of its advantages.

To accelerate cloud enablement, Celfocus Infrastructure as a Code Framework is used. It consists of a complete set of automations to allow a quicker and less error-prone configuration and provisioning of new environments in the cloud, including several playbooks that enable the automatic installation of market lead products and applications, making available the pillars of successful operability, like Observability, CI/CD and Test Automation.

Celfocus Infrastructure as a Code Framework can decrease by more than 90% the installation and configuration of new environments during a migration to the cloud.

With cost optimisation in mind, Celfocus also implements a FinOps Framework that defines guidelines to guarantee proper efficiency of resources used in the cloud, as well as proper cost predictability according to a pre-defined budget, aiming for a Run Maturity Level in FinOps Foundations Organization.

Use Cases

Moving a CSP’s Omnichannel Portal to AWS Cloud

Migrating the Omnichannel Portal to the Cloud was a challenging project for this CSP Tier 2 from Europe. With the support of Celfocus, the CSP adopted next-generation cloud migration approaches, anchored in a deep knowledge of the applications to be migrated. This ensured the necessary adaptation to get the most out of the best-performing cloud services, improving customer experience and ensuring better resource utilisation, performance optimisation, and lower operational costs.
