AWS To Azure Migration

As public cloud has become an integral part of any organization’s cloud strategy, cloud migration has been a much-discussed topic. The on-premises-to-public cloud migration (whether Azure, AWS or Google) has become a well-worn path.

There is a wealth of information about how to perform these migrations, and many partners and tools are available to help you make this migration easier. But what about organizations that have already migrated their applications to a public cloud but are now looking to make a switch?

If you are pondering a public cloud to public cloud migration project, this will give you some idea of what to consider in making the move, and reviews some reasons why an organization may be considering these types of migrations. I’m also going to pull some real-world examples and lessons learned from one of our recent AWS to Azure migrations.

Why would you want to perform a public cloud to cloud migration?

We are seeing an uptick in public-cloud-to-public-cloud migration projects. In theory this should be inevitable as more and more organizations run the majority of their applications in public cloud. Here are some specific factors that may lead an organization to make a change:

  • Cloud supplier diversification – Enterprise clients may benefit from leveraging two (or more) public cloud providers as a procurement strategy or to hedge against vendor lock in.
  • Staff skills – Cloud skills can sometime be scarce in the market. Clients’ in-house skill sets or partner skills can drive cloud platform decisions or changes in direction.
  • Cloud transformation maturity – As organizations deepen their level of cloud maturity, early pilot projects may bear reconsideration to take advantage of new capabilities or to consolidate public cloud providers.
  • Cloud provider relationship or agreements – Vendor agreements can drive cloud decisions. An example of this is migration to retire contract commitments or taking advantage of unique licensing benefits such as Microsoft Hybrid Use Benefit (HUB) licensing.
  • Mergers and acquisitions – Even in the cloud, M&A activity can drive migration from one cloud vendor to another.
