AWS Cloud - Optimal Migrations

 AWS Cloud - Optimal Migrations: In this day and age, it seems impossible to stay away from the cloud as a business. The advantages that cloud computing offers to some organizations are simply too exceptional to ignore for one more moment. You have therefore already begun the process and made the decision . You must migrate to the cloud. However, what's the next step?

With the numerous tools created by both cloud providers and software vendors, starting your migration to the cloud has never been easier. Regardless of whether you want to move your onsite workloads or build cloud-native solutions from the start.

Security

If you know your security objectives and how you will be dealing with data, you can make good decisions about the services you should use to build your current environment.

It is always a good idea to keep security in mind when planning your migration. There are concerns such as,

  • How can I protect the data of my clients?
  • My application is at risk of getting compromised.
  • How can I make certain my application is not compromised?
  • These are the discussions between the parties.

There are two significant factors to take into consideration when choosing your cloud solution provider.

By anticipating and implementing an architecture that incorporates best practices, both of these issues can be addressed. ExtNoc has carefully assessed client environments and often finds that the "basics" are covered. And that is a wonderful start, but when it comes to security, simply the essentials won't cut it. Particularly if it could compromise your current environment.

One way AWS is providing its customers with architecture guidance is through its "Architecture Center". This includes reference architecture charts, architecture solutions, examples, and patterns. Experts from AWS cloud architecture. This team which includes solution architects, expert services advisors, and partners, contributed to this easily accessible guide.

With AWS migrations, there is a common responsibility model that essentially goes this way. AWS is responsible for cloud security. AWS will handle everything physical, from the safety officers stationed at different data centers' access points to the security and management of the infrastructure on which your services will run.

Again, it is up to you (or the partner you are working with) to ensure your cloud's security. Therefore, you must always ensure that your data is securely and regularly backed up.

AWS does provide some services that are completely managed. Such as RDS (social database service), where the company provides everything for you, from your account to your database tables.

Compliance

A good place to start with cloud migration is to understand the compliance systems your organization needs to comply with, as it will dictate many of the architecture choices you'll need to make.

In this situation, the point at which your clients are located in a country with a data residency law (such as GDPR, POPIA, PCI, ISO, and so forth) would be an example. You will need to prepare for how you will handle and process the data of those clients, as compared to the data of those clients in other nations without those limitations/laws.

AWS provides several tools, such as Control Tower, for managing data residency, such that you can determine how data is moved between areas or if it can even be moved to a new site.

A company's compliance policies may often dictate how it performs its duties, and what services it can or cannot utilize.

One of the most incredible things about AWS getting compliance certificates for their infrastructure is that it makes compliance so much easier for you.

Regardless, you should consider the same shared responsibility model; AWS will ensure that infrastructure is agreeable - you should ensure that your applications also meet compliance requirements.

Finally, it is worth understanding that the services that you intend to incorporate into your architecture may sometimes make compliance with relevant compliance systems somewhat easier.

What other factors need to be considered before implementing a cloud migration strategy?

Consider what tools your cloud provider provides - often at no additional cost - so that you can better determine whether you will need them when moving.

As can be seen, when looking at the devices made available by AWS, this is the case.

AWS has made more than six tools available for free. And some of these tools are ideal for planning, while others make migrating your servers, applications, and databases a lot easier.

AWS Server Migration Service, which is an agentless service applicable for migrating virtual workloads from on-premises infrastructure or from Microsoft Azure to AWS, is one example of such a tool. You can automate, schedule. And track the gradual replication of live server volumes. Simplifying the coordination of multi-server migrations.

Before starting your migration, you will have to consider a long list of other considerations. They are rated as important in order of priority. But all can have a significant impact on the architecture you produce and the journey you take with your environment long term.

ExtNoc has helped several customers meet their security and compliance objectives in anticipation of their migration to the cloud, and is familiar with the importance of hardware selection to achieve a successful migration.

Contact ExtNoc if you've made the decision to migrate to the cloud. And are looking for a partner to guide you through the process of creating an effective strategy, implementing the migration, and streamlining your business as it grows.
