If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard about the amazing cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and so on.
These cloud services provide you with the ability to store your data, run your applications and services, and even execute your business processes on the Internet.
However, you might be a bit cautious about migrating your business to the cloud. For starters, migrating all of your business applications and services to the cloud can be a challenging task. Moreover, choosing the right cloud service provider for your business can also be a challenging task. However, there are a few simple steps that you can follow to help you migrate your business to the cloud.
What is the main difference between on-premise and cloud infrastructure?
On-premise infrastructure refers to your physical computer hardware and software. Cloud infrastructure is typically the actual server that you purchase from a cloud service provider, which can be either physical or virtual. The main difference between on-premise and cloud infrastructure is that on-premise infrastructure is always physically hosted by you, whereas cloud infrastructure is typically hosted by a third party such as AWS.
Steps to Migrate Cloud Infrastructure to AWS
Create a hosting plan for your business
Before you can migrate to the cloud, you’ll need to first make sure that you have a hosting plan in place for your business. This is important because this will help determine what type of cloud service provider would be the best fit for your business. For example, you may want your business to use Microsoft Azure because it allows developers to write code in many different programming languages and deploy it automatically.
Identify your server locations
Next, identify where all of your servers are located. To do this, you’ll need to gather data about the location of each individual server and include information such as their IP address, CPU specifications, and memory allocation.
Create a migration plan with the help of cloud service providers
Now that you know where all of your servers are located and what type of cloud service provider would be best for you, it’s time create a migration strategy with the help of one or more cloud service providers. This will help ensure that when you migrate your infrastructure to AWS, they will be able to seamlessly move it into AWS without any problems. In other words, this step is crucial in making sure that everything runs smoothly once you migrate to AWS.
