How We Can Help You

How We Can Help You

  • Gather the business objectives and requirements

    We conduct a detailed analysis of your business objectives and requirements to determine the best cloud strategy for your organization. This includes understanding your performance, security, and compliance requirements.

  • Evaluate existing infrastructure solution

    We assess your current infrastructure, identifying potential challenges and opportunities for improvement in the cloud. This includes analyzing your server utilization, network topology, and application dependencies.

  • Assist in choosing the right cloud provider

    We help you select the most suitable cloud provider based on your business needs, application architecture, and compliance requirements. This includes comparing the offerings of different cloud providers, and evaluating their performance, cost, and service level agreements.

  • Assess and build the migration roadmap

    We create a detailed migration roadmap using the 6R’s approach (Rehost, Replatform, Repurchase, Refactor, Retire, Retain), outlining the steps for cloud migration. This includes identifying the applications and data to be migrated, planning the migration schedule, and defining the rollback strategy.

  • Automate the migration

    We automate the migration process using Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) tools like Terraform or CloudFormation, ensuring a repeatable and reliable migration process. This includes automating the provisioning of cloud resources, the configuration of network and security settings, and the deployment of applications.

  • Validate, rollout and support the Cloud Infrastructure

    We validate the migrated infrastructure, roll out the changes, and provide ongoing support to ensure your cloud infrastructure is always optimized and secure. This includes monitoring the performance and availability of your cloud resources, applying security patches, and optimizing your resource usage to reduce costs.
