What is cloud migration?

Cloud migration is all about lifting your databases, applications, communications, and IT processes from the ground and setting them free in the cloud. It could mean shifting from an older cloud setup to a modern one, or waving goodbye to outdated on-premises tech and embracing cloud innovation.

Doing this right means ensuring the secure and smooth transfer of your critical business data and operational systems.

At Focus Group, we're here to lead you through this dance with precision and grace.

Frequently asked questions

Cloud migration is needed to reduce the cost of ownership – removing the expensive and unnecessary operational and maintenance costs of legacy infrastructure. The ability to have a service without upgrades and licences will allow money to be channelled into other projects.

Cloud-based services are also incredibly agile, providing businesses with the ability to quickly scale up the size of data centres or applications in line with business growth.

The future of office working has changed over the last few years so the ability to work efficiently and collaboratively from the office or remotely is now vital for many companies. Cloud migration underpins digital transformation and facilitates anywhere working.

Above all, the cloud provides a secure centre for the data to be stored, reducing the threat of cyber-attacks within the company, which can lead to both financial and reputational penalties.

The different types of cloud migration are commonly known as the 6Rs of cloud migration. These are the following: rehosting, re-platforming, repurchasing, refactoring, retaining, retiring. Commonly, the retain (or hybrid model) is the most versatile. This is when an organisation wants to keep some workloads of databases due to security concerns, GDPR compliance or other issues. You create a hybrid infrastructure where some data and workloads are stored in the cloud and some are retained on-premise in an onsite data centre.

Another type of cloud migration is repurchased (or drop-and-shop). This is simply when you drop or cancel your existing licence agreement in place and opt for a new platform service. This way you adopt this approach will be based on your companies’ requirements i.e. if you need to think about disaster recovery, security systems or the capabilities of the current platform you are on.
