Migrating apps and services to the cloud can be challenging. However, by using various technologies and the expertise of our cloud computing team, we can make the process very simple at Softobiz.
Through Cloud migration, our prime goal is to host your apps and services in the best possible IT environment where you can run them with full efficiency without having to worry about factors like security and budget.
Lift and Shift
It’s the most traditional approach for cloud migration. The idea is simple. Just lift an app from its present environment and shift it to the cloud.
The process involves replicating the legacy apps and then shifting them on to the cloud platform.
The process of cloud migration differs according to the cloud migration approach we’re going to follow. Still, some steps remain the same for instane evaluating performance and security requirements, choosing a cloud provider, calculating costs, and making necessary changes.
We also face several challenges during cloud migration such as data integrity, data security, business continuity, data & application portability, and inter-operability. Keeping all these things in mind, we devise a cloud strategy that works best for you.

Shift to SaaS

The process involves developing the app from scratch on the cloud.
