Small-scale cloud migration

Make cloud migration quick and easy with the support of experienced cloud engineers.

Migrating a single service to the cloud

Planning and orchestrating a cloud migration can be hard if the team is unfamiliar with the new environment or hasn’t handled many migrations before. Even a relatively simple migration involving a single service or application can present problems. DevOpsGroup’s experienced cloud engineers can help reduce risk and improve outcomes. We’ve handled hundreds of migrations to AWS and Azure, so we have the knowledge and expertise to make migration fast, secure and simple.

Our small-scale cloud migration service

This service is ideal for situations where a single item with minimal links to other applications or services needs to move to AWS or Azure. The target workload will typically have a straightforward three-tier architecture and a simple relational database management system (RDBMS).

We run discovery sessions to ensure we understand exactly what the migration needs to achieve. And we advise on, then implement, modernisation techniques to ensure the workload will function securely, reliably and cost-efficiently in the cloud.

“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

Webinar specialist reaps the benefits of a ‘migrate and modernise’ approach

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.
