So how do you do it? We’ve got you covered with these three phases: Plan, Migrate, Run.
Prepare for the move by setting performance baselines, Identifying dependencies, and prioritizing your migration order:
Step 1: Application Baselining
Establish a baseline and validate your existing performance.
Step 2: Identify Application Dependencies
Understand the impact of your application migration to the cloud.
Step 3: Prioritize Migration Order
Verify and ensure that your application is ready for the cloud.
What you need to measure before, during, and after the move, so you can ensure success at every step.
Step 4: Identify Issues & Roadblocks
Detect errors or other possible issues.
Step 5: Validate Cloud Improvements
Validate that your cloud service use is successful.
Step 6: Acceptance Testing
