Navigate the complexity of cloud migration with experienced cloud engineers at your side and realise benefits sooner.
Sometimes in-house teams don’t have the capacity or capabilities to handle certain aspects of a medium-scale cloud migration. This situation can result in analysis-paralysis, preventing migration from getting underway. DevOpsGroup’s cloud engineers work alongside customers’ own teams to ensure migrations involving multiple services are well planned and expertly implemented. We guide the overall process and take a hands-on approach where needed to ensure business goals are achieved.
Medium-scale cloud migrations involve multiple services or applications with n-tier (multi-tier) architectures. While they are less complex than largescale migrations, they can be challenging and require careful management. Target applications are likely to be based on a clustered relational database management system (RDBMS) or a non-relational database.
For projects of this nature, we typically work with the customer to plan, prepare and orchestrate migration to AWS or Azure. We identify issues that could delay migration, increase costs or prevent cloud benefits from being realised, then take steps to mitigate them.
“DevOpsGroup showed how quickly we can unlock added value from AWS if we work proactively to modernise applications during cloud migration.”
Paul Holden, VP Operations, BrightTALK
For medium-scale migrations, three DevOpsGroup engineers typically spend around three months supporting the customer. They’ll conduct discovery workshops and create an engineering backlog based on focused recommendations. Then they’ll support the modernisation of target workloads so they are optimised for the cloud environment.

Experience handling large and complex migrations
BrightTALK wanted to leverage the advantages of its migration to AWS quickly and seamlessly without the risk of user disruption. DevOpsGroup implemented a proof of concept ‘migrate and modernise’ approach to demonstrate how this could be achieved. We used container technology to improve operability without the need for a full rebuild.Read the full story
Cloud migration is a one-off event for our customers, but business as usual for us. Our engineers are capable and confident in the cloud, and they’ll ensure your team gets off to a flying start in the new environment.
Medium-scale migrations are smaller, involving fewer services and a lower level of complexity. These projects tend to include up to 5TB of data, ten physical hosts and up to 400 VMs. Anything involving more than 5TB would generally be considered largescale.
A medium-scale migration usually takes around three months, and no longer than six months. We provide more definite timescales once we’ve discussed the scope of the project.
