This is beSharp’s methodology for planning and executing migration on AWS. It was developed for cases where a simple lift-and-shift is not enough to take full advantage of Cloud migration.
It is based on AWS’s Cloud Adoption Framework and the best-practices that beSharp has built up over dozens of Cloud migrations. It is divided into three phases, which allow you to analyze the requirements, define the Cloud Adoption Strategy, and perform the migration of each workload.
The experience of Cloud Experts in designing AWS infrastructure allows you to get the maximum benefit the more you need a redesign in a Cloud-native perspective. The structured approach speeds up time, reducing costs, and unknowns.
Each Cloud migration to AWS requires a thorough preliminary study to outline the best Cloud Adoption Strategy, but there are cases where an additional dose of attention is needed: when it is essential to go beyond the simple lift-and-shift, it is essential to define in advance the operating principles of the new infrastructure on AWS, to ensure maximum uptime of services and a seamless transition to the Cloud.
The migration services on AWS from beSharp are designed for companies that need to deal with complex migration in the Cloud. Thanks to a structured approach that extends AWS’s Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF), our Cloud Expert team integrates the experience gained in dozens of Cloud migrations into a methodology that reduces costs, prevents critical issues, and accelerates migration timelines. When the Cloud-native redesign of each service is required, beSharp defines with you the most suitable strategy for the migration of each individual workload, choosing between Rehosting, Replatforming, Repurchasing, Refactoring (Re-architecting ), Retire or Retain, in a validated and replicable process that immediately guarantees maximum results and lends itself to subsequent optimization and evolution. In the Migration Readiness Assessment (MRA) phase, our Solutions Architects assess each workload’s predisposition to be migrated to AWS. They carry out an in-depth analysis of each of them to highlight possible security, governance, and operations critical issues both from a technical and business point of view. The output of this evaluation helps to outline migration priorities for the next phase. In the Migration Readiness & Planning (MRP) phase, an action plan for the migration to AWS is defined: during this phase, the workflows for the definition of the Landing Zone, the operating model, and for the implementation of security and compliance best practices are identified. This will help build up the Cloud skills of the IT team in charge of the AWS infrastructure’s management. In the migration phase, our Cloud Experts support your IT team in the execution of the previously defined plan, coordinating technicians, tools, and processes necessary to migrate the workloads from the on-premise to the Cloud. Where possible, the use of patterns validated by experience reduces time and risks, maximizing the result of migration on AWS.
Once the migration to the AWS Cloud is complete, you can focus on optimizing processes, applications, and costs. beSharp’s AWS Professional Services offer you the Cloud consulting necessary to evolve your infrastructure, implementing new projects, and introducing DevOps methodologies. You can entrust the management of your AWS infrastructure to our AWS Managed Services team, which guarantees a 24/7 support service. Our Solutions Architect can verify that your Cloud services respond at all times to AWS best practices by carrying out a periodic Well-architected Review. At the same time, our AWS certified instructors can train your team both with personalized on-the-job training and by providing official training courses in preparation for AWS certifications.
