Cloud Migration Services
Fortycloud business cloud migration solutions help you transform your organisation into an agile and scalable enterprise.
Why is Cloud Migration is Important to Business Growth?
Cloud migration allows an organization to move its digital assets, resources, and services or applications to a cloud provider's servers. The migrated assets cannot be accessed beyond the cloud service provider's firewall. With smart features and an unending array of business benefits, cloud computing has gained traction in recent years. Gone are the days when ‘migration to the cloud’ was still a concept for debate. Smart user-friendly applications, time-saving features, ease of access, enhanced security and qualitative outputs propel the success of cloud computing and encourage non-cloud users to make this business-changing leap. Moreover, reduction in implementation and licensing costs are opening avenues for business owners to invest in the cloud.
Our cloud migration services help you transform your business through the right strategy, roadmap, workflow model and ecosystem collaborations.

Cloud Migration Process
We work with you to define and establish a cloud strategy and objectives based on the triggers that make sense for your business, the goals you want to achieve, and the priorities for your workloads. We identify your current infrastructure and assess its readiness for migration. We help you create a migration plan based on priorities, timelines, resources, and budget. Once everything is ready, we help you migrate your workloads in waves to the cloud environment. We'll also help you secure and manage your workloads across all cloud environments so that they are always available when needed—whether they're running in private clouds or public clouds like Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure.
When you migrate your data to the cloud, it’s delivered and stored in a location that’s accessible to employees at any time. This means they can access their files from any device (such as a smartphone or laptop).
Cloud migration services are designed to help businesses make this transition. Let’s take a closer look at how these services work and what they have to offer:
- What are Cloud Migration Services? Cloud migration services provide businesses with an easy way to transport their data from on-premise servers into the cloud. Developers will use software as a service platforms (SaaS) such as Office 365 to transfer files from your existing servers into Microsoft’s cloud storage system. That way, you don’t have to worry about losing access because of server crashes or hardware failure!
- How much do they cost? Most companies charge per gigabyte for this type of service; however, some providers may offer flat rate pricing instead if you commit upfront for multiple months/years worth of storage space usage on top of other products offered by said provider.
Cloud migration services can help you migrate your data, applications and infrastructure to the cloud. Cloud migration services can also be used to help transition from legacy systems to cloud-based solutions.
Cloud migration services can make it easy for you to move from one cloud provider to another by using technology that allows you to build applications on top of familiar technologies like Java or .NET Core.
The cost of a cloud migration is dependent on the size and complexity of your migration. Generally, cloud migration services are more expensive than in-house migrations. However, when considering upfront costs and recurring fees, they can be less expensive over time. The best way to estimate your costs is to speak with one of our cloud consultants.
With a cloud migration, you can:
- Reduce costs. Data centers are expensive to build and maintain. Cloud computing enables you to pay for only what you use, which means there’s no need for large upfront capital expenditures. You’ll also no longer need to hire an in-house team of IT specialists or contract with an outside company to maintain your data center.
- Improve productivity by making it easier for employees on the go who don’t have access to the same equipment as their colleagues at headquarters do. For example, with a cloud solution like Office 365 Business Premium, employees can access email and other applications over their smartphones without having to install anything on their devices thanks to Microsoft’s OneDrive mobile app—and they can share documents via SharePoint Online collaboration sites from anywhere on any device that has an internet connection. This makes it easy for all team members from different locations around the world to work together seamlessly despite being separated by distance; so long as everyone has access via this kind of solution then all information will be available wherever needed!
- Increase flexibility with limitless resources available whenever necessary (whether across multiple offices or just within one building). No longer does one department need its own dedicated server room filled with expensive hardware worth thousands upon thousands of dollars—now everything runs off one central location instead where data backups are stored securely offsite too! Plus these days if something breaks down then there’s less risk involved because everything is managed remotely via secure VPNs/firewalls etcetera.
Cloud migration is a complex process, and it can be difficult to determine which steps to take first. There are many cloud migration challenges to overcome, including:
- Data security
- Data governance
- Data management
- Data sovereignty
- Data backup and recovery
Data security is a major concern when moving to the cloud. You have to make sure your data is secure in transit and at rest, which means migrating with encryption and securing your keys. Data governance is another concern. Your organization needs policies in place before you start the migration so that everyone is on the same page about how data should be managed.
Data management is another challenge. To be successful, you need to understand what data you have and where it’s stored. Then you can build a strategy for moving that data into the cloud and make sure your applications are compatible with the new infrastructure. Data sovereignty laws vary by country so it’s important to know how these regulations affect your organization before migrating.
One of the biggest challenges is data backup and recovery. It’s important to have an automated solution that can back up your on-premises data to the cloud in real time so that you don’t lose any data. If you fail to plan for backup and recovery before migrating, it could be very costly or even impossible.
The first step in your cloud migration strategy is to decide which cloud provider you want to use. If you are looking for a public cloud option, then AWS and Azure have the most options available today. If you prefer a private or hybrid model, then IBM Cloud or Google Cloud Platform might be more suitable for your needs.
Once you have decided on a provider, it’s time to create a plan for migrating your data and applications into the new platform. The best way of doing this is by performing an assessment that analyzes both your current environment and what type of resources will be required moving forward (e.g., compute, storage). You should also determine which applications need migrating based on their importance to business operations and whether they’re currently running in-house or as SaaS solutions from another vendor (e.g., Salesforce). Once these factors are considered along with any additional considerations such as security requirements etc., then it’s time for execution! Your next steps include getting started
When you think of cloud migration, the first step that comes to mind is planning. This is a very important step because it will determine how well your migration goes and whether or not it will be successful. The next step in the process is testing your application in the cloud environment before actually executing the migration. After you’ve tested your application, you’re ready to execute your migration—this means moving all of your data into a new environment like Google Cloud or Azure. The last step in this process is monitoring how well everything works once things are up and running in their new home, which allows for any adjustments needed during this phase of implementation
