Cloud Migration Steps

How does CloudHedge help in migrating to cloud in days? It’s a simple four step process:

Step 1 - Assess and Analyze

Assess and analyze the application server using CloudHedge’s Discover tool. It intelligently scans through the metadata including setup, processes, packages, and configurations. All we need is a read-only SSH access of the application server.

Step 2 - Workload Analysis

Based on the workload analysis, our tool recommends options to either Containerize or convert to serverless function or to Upsize or Downsize workload, or scheduled provisioning/ de-provisioning.

Step 3 - Containerize

For this post, let’s choose to Containerize. Filter through the services which need to be containerized. Attach probe to conduct detailed discovery, ideally, run through a regression cycle.

CloudHedge automates creation of Docker file(s). Depending upon the application and its environment, Docker file(s) may need few tweaks. Create a Docker image (or CloudHedge will assist in creating a Docker image) and add it to specific Docker registry.

Step 4 - Create Application Blueprint & Deploy

Create an application blueprint and deploy the containers on a Hosts or Cluster setup onto a cloud of your choice (AWS / Google Cloud / Azure or Private).
