Cloud Infrastructure and Application Migration Services
ClearScale is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Consulting Partner because of our proven capability to migrate complex architectures to the cloud and our deep knowledge of Amazon’s best-in-class services. Moving to the cloud is one of the first and most important steps in successfully growing your business and achieving the benefits of cost efficiency, agility, and scalability. We have a long track record of successful infrastructure and application migrations for clients of all sizes in a wide variety of industries.
We take planning seriously and strive for a seamless transition of your valuable data to the cloud with zero downtime. We have experience in migrations from internal data centers as well as other cloud providers such as Rackspace, SoftLayer, Google Compute Engine, Microsoft Azure, and Joyent. Over the years, we have developed a comprehensive strategy that can be customized to fit our clients’ specific requirements and business goals. ClearScale’s high level of expertise with Amazon Web Services enables us to extend the benefits of their most advanced and cost efficient solutions to our clients.
Our Migration competency with AWS was earned based on our extensive experience that spans more than 400 migrations. We don’t believe in “lift and shift” migrations as they don’t leverage all the benefits of AWS Cloud. Migrating your infrastructure to the cloud is more than mapping over identical services. We audit and evaluate your current infrastructure and make migration recommendations based on your target parameters. Then we design the most agile, scalable, and secure cloud infrastructure, select the best cloud services and technologies for your project, and plan all implementation procedures. We automate and deploy your infrastructure to AWS. After we receive your approval, we transfer your data to AWS and thoroughly test all functionality and security. Our migration experts will help your business achieve all the benefits of cloud, including infinite scalability, high availability, and automation with virtually no downtime during the transition.
Our Migration Methodology
Strategy and roadmap to facilitate decisions such as how cloud can best be used for your organization, which applications are a best fit for cloud, and whether a proof of concept is needed.
Infrastructure audit to examine the existing infrastructure and compare it to current standards and best practices in security, availability, scalability, infrastructure automation, monitoring, proactive prevention of failures, and disaster recovery.
Architecture design to gather requirements, create logical and network diagrams, and create cloud architecture documents.
Automation with proven, cutting-edge cloud technologies, including deep automation with Amazon CloudFormation, Chef, and Docker.
Deployment of the new cloud production, staging, and test environments.
Testing of all functionality at scale and high load.
Cutover from the old infrastructure/app to the new cloud deployment, including complete data migration and low downtime.
Full documentation of your new cloud infrastructure to enable you to get your team up to speed faster. If your team needs ongoing support after launch, we offer multiple levels of cloud managed services.
Migration Audit Tools We Use
AWS Database Migration Service to minimize or eliminate downtime to applications that rely on your existing database.
AWS Server Migration Service to speed up “lift and shift”-type migrations.
AWS Import/Export Snowball to address challenges with large data transfers that result in high network costs, long transfer times, and security concerns.
NMAP tools for Network Discovery are used to collect data about active hosts on networks and services running on ports.
AWS Application Discovery Service to quickly and reliably plan application migration projects by automatically identifying applications running in on-premises data centers, their associated dependencies, and their performance profile.
Server Agents are installed on each host to gather server, service, and software information.
Custom Scripts tools used to RDP/SSH to server to gather server, service, and software information.
