Step 1: Discover
Your mission to the cloud begins with a clear understanding of your goals and objectives. Ask yourself, what is the purpose of migrating to AWS? Are you looking to achieve increased scalability, flexibility, or cost savings? Knowing your mission is paramount in selecting the right migration strategy and identifying the services that will best support you in achieving success. By understanding your objectives, you can design a tailored migration plan that meets your specific needs.
Step 2: Assess
Conducting an assessment of your existing workloads and resources is the next logical step before your cloud migration journey. This will help you pinpoint any obstacles and prepare for them, as well as giving you an accurate picture of what resources are needed for the move. As part of the assessment, you should also consider server configurations (virtual / physical), network architecture, security concerns, and any compliance requirements that may be relevant. Ultimately, this assessment allows you to be confident that your cloud migration will move forward without any unexpected obstructions.
Step 3: Plan
Once you’ve identified your current architecture, you can begin to craft a custom migration plan that factors in your applications, databases, storage, network topology, and servers. With an attention to detail, your plan will help reduce downtime and data loss during the transition, thus ensuring a smoother process. Leverage the extensive knowledge of an experienced cloud migration provider to ensure your plan is sound and your organization is set up for success.
