Cloud Modernisation

Evolve existing applications and other workloads to ensure they are geared up for optimum performance in the cloud.

DevOpsGroup team discussing migration plan

A pragmatic approach to cloud adoption

Simply being in the cloud won’t unlock the benefits of the cloud. Any workload undergoing migration needs operability and infrastructure improvements to reduce total cost of ownership, enhance security and improve organisational agility. This modernisation can happen during the migration itself or after a ‘lift and shift’. Either way, it requires specialist skills and a deep knowledge of the target environment.

We’ll prime your workloads for the cloud

Our AWS and Azure specialists are well-versed in cloud modernisation. They determine the best strategy to optimise performance and ROI for individual applications or any other workload, setting priorities based on your budget and needs. Proven DevOps methods such as pipelines and platforms are used to achieve goals ranging from cost reduction to improved agility. Whatever you want to achieve, our engineers will unpick the most complex challenges and set you up for success.

Containers linking into cloud

Containerisation

Improve operability without a full rebuild. Our engineers are highly skilled at containerising workloads for effective deployment on AWS and Azure. We work with cloud providers’ own container technologies or open-source solutions to deliver the best possible outcomes.

Continuous Delivery pipelines

Continuous Delivery Pipelines

Applying the DevOps principle of automation to infrastructure engineering takes reliability, efficiency and security to a higher level. CD pipelines offer a fast-track to modern ways of working that make the most of cloud’s ability to enhance quality and productivity.

TFS to Azure Migration

TFS to Azure Migration

Moving from TFS to Azure is complex and risky. To enable frictionless migration, our engineers first examine TFS source control, templates and customisations. Then they move the right code in the correct format with any necessary customisations applied in the Azure environment.

"DevOpsGroup showed how quickly we can unlock added value from AWS if we work proactively to modernise applications during cloud migration."
