Picking the right cloud migration strategy

  • Rehost

    Rehosting, or “lift and shift,” involves moving applications to the cloud without any modification. Our cloud migration services company offers such strategy as the most cost-effective and ideal for businesses seeking immediate benefits from cloud adoption. Rehosting allows companies to scale their infrastructure rapidly, taking advantage of cloud resources with minimal disruption to existing operations.

  • Replatform

    Replatforming involves making a few cloud optimizations without changing the core architecture. It allows businesses to take advantage of cloud benefits like improved performance and scalability without a complete overhaul. By replatforming, you can achieve better resource utilization and enhanced application performance while maintaining familiar application frameworks and development environments.

  • Repurchase

    Repurchasing means switching to a different product, often a SaaS platform, replacing the existing application. This approach can streamline operations and reduce management overhead. By adopting SaaS solutions, businesses can benefit from continuous updates, lower maintenance costs, and access to advanced features and functionalities provided by the service providers.

  • Refactor

    Refactoring requires re-architecting applications to leverage cloud capabilities fully. Although complex and resource-intensive, it maximizes performance, agility, and cost savings. Refactoring enables businesses to build cloud-native applications, optimize resource usage, and implement advanced cloud services like serverless computing and microservices architecture, enhancing scalability and resilience.

  • Retain

    Retaining involves keeping certain applications on-premises due to specific requirements or constraints. It’s a strategic decision based on the application’s criticality and compatibility with cloud environments. Businesses may retain applications with regulatory constraints, latency-sensitive operations, or complex dependencies that make cloud migration less feasible.

  • Retire

    Retiring obsolete applications reduces clutter and focuses resources on more critical systems. This approach optimizes the IT landscape and cuts unnecessary costs. By retiring outdated applications, businesses can streamline their technology stack, reduce security risks, and reallocate resources to more strategic initiatives.
