Our Comprehensive Cloud Migration Process
Gain an understanding of your goals and objectives driving your move to the cloud.
Conduct an assessment of your current workloads, server configurations (virtual/physical), network architecture, security concerns, and compliance requirements.
Develop a custom cloud migration plan based on your applications, databases, storage, network topology, and servers.
Migrate to the new environment and testing of the initial deployment.
Monitor and optimize your cloud solutions for performance and savings.
Move the application to its steady state where our managed services practice can run and maintain it.
Answers to cloud migration considerations
How do you know if my application belongs on one platform vs. another?
Different platforms have different advantages — that’s why we always let the application drive the requirements for the infrastructure.
For applications that run 24/7 and need a lot of feeding and care, our private cloud migrations options work particularly well both from a performance and cost perspective. For variable workloads, those that need to align with traffic patterns, and workloads that demand a complete kill and rebuild process frequently, Amazon cloud migration may be the better fit. And for those in the middle, we can work on a hybrid cloud adoption plan that meets all your needs.
Do you migrate to multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures?
Yes. We can help you create a strategy that connects traditional dedicated servers, public clouds, and private clouds together for one application (hybrid cloud), or multiple clouds from different providers for multiple applications (multi-cloud).
Do you manage my applications?
No. We offer application-driven infrastructure to give you total control and confidence that your infrastructure will support you. When we architect an infrastructure solution, it’s based on the needs of your applications and workloads. So while we do not actually manage your applications, we work with you to design a cloud strategy for the workloads they rely on.
We do, however, provide cloud-native software development.
How do I maintain compliance throughout my cloud migration?
Deft is a Type II AT-101 SOC 2 audited company and is PCI-DSS compliant. We offer Business Associate Agreements to help customers meet all other compliance requirements, including HIPAA, SOX, FISMA, and others.
