Reasons Why Businesses Migrate To The Azure Cloud

Reasons organizations that migrate to CloudCloud are not only expensive and risky, but also a great reward. Here are some of the common drivers for migrating applications and workloads to the cloud:

Cost Savings

The cloud reduces the need for hardware support and internal IT management.

Faster Time To Market

The cloud platform makes the development and deployment cycles easier and more automated, allowing new features to get to market faster.

Scalability and Utilization

On-site systems were typically designed for peak loads and in most cases used less than 20% capacity. In the cloud, you can use the hardware resources you really need in each period.

Reduce Initial Costs For New Projects

Since the cloud price is based on a pay-as-you-go model, you do not need to invest in hardware and license costs initially.

Application Modernization

The cloud facilitates the modernization of development processes and business processes, increases agility and efficiency, and delivers greater value to customers.

Migration Model

  • Migration model used by the application
  • Assessment of the current state and plan of the future state
  • How to realize the movement
  • Storage configuration options
  • Security and availability solutions
  • Migrate and maintain the Azure deployment

How It Works?

Migrating your datacenter to an IaaS platform like Azure is a big step for small businesses. There are many benefits to moving to the cloud – like increased productivity, better agility and decreased costs – but getting there is a daunting process.

Migrating Web Application from On-premises to Azure

  • Create an Azure Infrastructure foundation for the virtual machine.
  • Create a Virtual Machine in Azure and configure with IIS for your application.
    Copy the Website to the Azure Virtual machine.
  • Open Ports and configure Azure for the new service.
  • Change Configuration information on website.

Breaking Down Azure Migration Phases

Microsoft recommends a four-step migration process for migrating to Azure:

  • Discover: Catalog your software and workloads
  • Assess: Categorize applications and workloads
  • Target: Identify the destination(s) for each of your workloads
  • Migrate: Make the actual move

The services mentioned above are the core tenants that provide a foundation for your applications, virtual machines and hybrid connectivity in Azure. Having this well thought out, provides a great architecture for all of your cloud services.
