Why migrate your applications and data to the cloud?
Increase your Quality of Service
Cloud adoption delivers the benefit of improved system availability, real-time performance management and automatic allocation and de-allocation of resources in real time. Resilience is built-in to ensure high availability.
Increase your speed of delivery
It is quicker to adapt to changing business requirements when applications are hosted in the cloud. By removing the need to commission hardware, comms and datacentres the hosting environment can be quickly adjusted.
Reduce your hosting complexity and costs
Cloud providers manage security, operating system upgrades, availability and capacity. Adding new cloud services is a matter of simple configuration, not a physical build and commissioning activity, reducing the cost and time to build.
What is cloud migration?
Your cloud migration options
Cloud migration covers the end-to-end process of moving data and applications from dedicated hardware to a cloud based environment. Instead of owning the servers, data centres and supporting infrastructure, you pay a cloud provider to deliver to you the infrastructure services you require for hosting your applications and data, as you need them.
You can opt to transform your apps to take advantage of the features of the cloud (re-factoring), make some targeted changes to your apps to realise some of the benefits (re-platforming), lift and shift the app (re-hosting) or buy a replacement app designed for the cloud (re-purchasing).

How can we help?
It is possible to "lift and shift" an application to the cloud, and whilst this might be quicker and less costly in the short term, few of the significant benefits of migrating to the cloud will be realised and there may be some unintended consequences affecting performance and latency. Large scale re-writing of an app may take longer and cost more in the short term but longer term benefits and consequent cost savings may prove compelling. You have four primary cloud migration options and each application needs to be assessed separately to determine the optimum migration path:
Planning the migration, including any temporary integration which might be required.
Proof of concept
Carrying out a simple Proof of Concept to ensure that everything works as expected.
Assessing and changing your apps to take advantage of the out-of-the-box cloud features.
Migrating the apps and data, ensuring the integrity of both data and traffic between services.
What distinguishes Objectivity
AWS Cloud Engineers
Azure Cloud Engineers
We have the know-how
Objectivity provides cloud migration services to move your systems from an on premise/hosted platform to a cloud-based infrastructure. We work with you to prioritise, plan and manage cloud application migration and cloud data migration. Where appropriate, we can change the applications you are migrating to take advantage of automated cloud features including performance management and infrastructure auto-scaling to optimise your operating costs. Throughout, we focus on the security, performance and integrity of the applications and data being migrated whilst providing any integration required to applications and data not yet migrated to the cloud.
