Understanding the Six Rs in Cloud Migration

The Six Rs are the most common cloud migration strategies, and it takes experience to understand which approach best fits your organisation’s present and future requirements. Many businesses use the Lift and Shift (Re-host) approach, but more often than not it fails to deliver the true benefits of cloud hosting. Deciding on the right approach means reviewing which of the other cloud migration strategies make business sense in terms of resources and budgets available to drive business growth.  The other migration strategies options are Re-platform, Re-purchase, Re-factor, Retire and finally what to Retain.

Developing Your Tailored Azure Cloud Migration Plan

The Digital Craftsmen team believe the right approach to Azure migration is the one that saves money, utilises transferrable resources and fully optimises the benefits of the cloud to drive the digital transformation in your business.

In our workshop planning sessions, we work closely with clients to develop fully scoped out migration plans tailored to each client’s specific requirements to meet their present needs and future vision for the business.

1. Assessing Business Objectives

We start by understanding the goals and objectives of the business, including scalability, performance and cost optimisation.

2. Evaluating Existing Infrastructure

We conduct a thorough review and assessment of the current infrastructure, applications, and workloads to determine their suitability for migration.

3. Designing a Customised Migration Strategy

Based on our assessment, we work closely with our clients and together develop a customised migration strategy to support your business objectives. This may involve re-architecting applications, optimising workloads, or adopting cloud-native services.

4. Implementing Best Practices

We follow industry best practices and standards throughout the migration process, ensuring security, compliance, and efficiency at every step.

5. Providing Ongoing Support:

Our support doesn’t end with migration. We provide ongoing support and optimisation services to help businesses continue to maximise the value of their new hosting environment.
