on assessment of readiness for migration to the cloud

What do we
offer?

Softline offers cloud readiness assessment services that will provide you with reliable information concerning your existing environment and its readiness to migrate to the cloud. This will provide you with the information you need to make the right decisions about how, when, and where to migrate individual workloads to the Azure cloud, including including servers, applications, databases, etc. Softline helps clients prepare a plan for migration to the cloud, mitigating possible risks and increasing the efficiency of investments in cloud infrastructure.

Readiness assessment services for cloud migration are available in two versions, depending on the complexity of the infrastructure being evaluated.
Cloud Assessment
Light

Perfectly suitable for

  • - Small and simple local infrastructure (20-40 VM), AD, file servers, simple applications and databases
  • - Migration in the manual mode from Azure (PAYG and EA) to Azure (CSP)

The methods used

  • - Inventory and analysis of local infrastructure
  • - Interviews with stockholders from the client's side

The outcome

  • - The plan for migration to the cloud
  • - TCO analysis
Cloud Assessment
Heavy

Perfectly suitable for

  • - Organizations with medium or large local infrastructure (40+ VM), as well as complex applications
  • - IaaS services migration to Azure PaaS
  • - Architecture changes

The methods used

  • - Inventory and analysis of local infrastructure
  • - The Azure migration assistant and a third-party tool
  • - Interviews with stockholders from the client's side

The outcome

  • - A complete digital transformation plan
  • - Analysis of dependencies and compatibility
  • - A comprehensive return on investment study for moving to the cloud (TCO/ROI analysis)
Stages of migration
to the cloud
The evaluation procedure involves several phases. First, we discover all the components of the existing local or hybrid infrastructure. Then the application dependencies are analyzed. At this stage, we discover applications running on Windows and Linux, determine the connections between them, the effect of delay in sending and receiving messages on their operation, and create a visualized map of related components. Based on the results obtained, we create migration groups in order of priority, and determine the appropriate approach and optimal cloud configuration for each workload. Now you are ready to migrate to Azure!
