In the 1860s, newspaper editor Horace Greeley is reported to have said, “Go west young man and grow up with the country.” Had Mr. Greeley been an AWS cloud consultant today, he would have said, “Go migrate, you companies, and accelerate your digital transformation.”  

Thousands of companies have already moved their data and applications from physical data centers and servers to the cloud. By accessing on-demand computer power, storage, and more from the cloud, organizations are saving significant amounts of time and money.

How much? Amazon Web Service (AWS) reports average infrastructure cost savings of 31% from cloud computing versus on-premises. And a 69% reduction in unplanned downtime.

Of course, before you can realize those savings, you’ve got to move—or migrate—your digital assets from your physical space to the cloud. 

That’s where StratusGrid comes in.

The StratusGrid Migration Methodology

Migration is all about execution. It’s common for an organization to lose momentum and never complete all its objectives and achieve the anticipated value of its migration. Our AWS-certified engineers have developed a proven 3-step playbook that helps companies’ migrations meet with resounding success:

1. Assess

Our dedicated team collaborates closely with you to gain a deep understanding of your organization’s unique needs and aspirations for cloud migration. This phase is the crucial foundation upon which the entire migration journey is built.

We will:

  • Deep dive with agents into applications and grouping
  • Apply migration calculators for each discovered workload in the scope
  • Manually review and complete reports and other deliverables
  • Develop Migration Readiness Assessment and risk analysis

2. Mobilize

We build a solid foundation that fits your organization’s structure, configure your environment with precision, and guide you through pilot migrations to validate assumptions. In short, we turn your cloud vision into reality.

We will:

  • Partner with your teams to finalize architectural requirements and design
  • Plan out and document target designs
  • Identify any service templatization or repeatable patterns to be built out
  • Ensure architecture aligns with your organization's goals, compliance, etc.
  • Plan out mitigations for identified risks
  • Identify assumptions to test during pilot

3. Migrate

We take charge of driving your migration process forward seamlessly, ensuring that the process remains on track, avoids interruptions, and accomplishes your essential business priorities. 

We will:

  • Build out milestones based on priority and logical units of value
  • Plan out work for the initial milestone
  • Migrate workloads
  • Repeat the process until all workloads are migrated and your organization’s goals have been met
