Planning and Assessment :

Planning and evaluation are the first steps in the AWS cloud migration process. Three different processes are involved in this step. To determine the expenses associated with moving data to the AWS cloud, a financial assessment is first required. Comparing the financial effects of the on-premises centre and cloud-based infrastructure may require a complete and meticulous investigation. The term "on-premises costs" typically refers to the price of a server, storage, and network as well as the cost of IT staff. Security and compliance assessment is the subject of the following evaluation procedure in this stage. The earliest participation of security auditors and consultants is specifically mentioned as the best practise for AWS migration in this regard. Due to the significant difficulties associated with data protection, security and compliance evaluation are crucial. Data security presents formidable challenges, thereby implying the importance of security and compliance assessment. You need to develop an idea about threats and risks for your data and use it for the classification of data.

Based on the level of threat and risk, you can decide about the datasets which are suitable for cloud migration. You should also try to evaluate your overall risk tolerance and options for recovering data from the AWS cloud. The final process in the planning and assessment step refers to technical and functional assessment. This phase involves understanding the strategic and architectural fit of applications for the cloud.

Technical and functional assessment involves identifying applications for moving first to the cloud and possibilities for reusing current tools for resource management and configuration. The other factors in this assessment process for AWS migration include methods for excluding hardware, network, and software support contracts.

Strategy for Migrating Data to AWS Cloud :

The choice of the AWS migration strategy is the next crucial consideration in the process of moving to the AWS cloud. In this situation, you can choose between two different solutions. Both a Lift and Shift migration approach and a hybrid migration strategy are employed. Applications that are tightly connected, stateless, or standalone are best suited for Lift and Shift migration to migration method.

For large systems with numerous applications, a hybrid migration technique is optimal. The configuration and creation of an Application Migration Instance is a major concern at this point in the migration process. The necessity of a configuration management procedure should also be emphasized.

Lift-and-Shift DB & Application Migration

Hitachi has put up a straightforward and flexible migration and database procedure using AWS Application Migration Service.

AWS Application Migration Service automates the conversion of your source servers from physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure to run natively on AWS, minimizing time-consuming, error-prone manual methods.

Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Database Migration

AWS Database Migration Service allows heterogeneous migrations between database platforms, such as Oracle to Microsoft SQL Server to Amazon Aurora, as well as homogeneous migrations, such as Oracle to Oracle.

The source and target database engines are the same or compatible in homogeneous database migrations.

The source and the target database engines are distinct in heterogenous database migrations, as in the cases of Oracle to Amazon Aurora, Oracle to PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL Server to MySQL migrations. Before the data migration process can begin, a schema and code transformation is necessary.
