Just follow this three-step process: Assess; Mobilise; Migrate & Modernise
The "assess" phase plays a crucial role when you're moving your workload to AWS. At Fusion5, we've got you covered with our six-step approach to completing the assessment. And here's a little bonus: if your workload meets the requirements, we can usually cover the entire cost of the assessment phase, so you won't have to dig into your pockets at all!
Step 1: Discovery and Inventory
Let's start by identifying and discovering all the applications, systems, and infrastructure components that make up your workload. We'll take a close look at servers, databases, network configurations, storage, and other related resources. Our goal is to create a comprehensive inventory of your current IT environment.
Step 2: Dependency Mapping
Once we've established the inventory, we'll move on to mapping the dependencies between different components of your workload. It's important to understand the network connections, data flows, and interdependencies between various systems and applications. This information will help us plan the migration strategy effectively and ensure that we account for all dependencies.
Step 3: Performance and Resource Analysis
Now it's time to analyse the performance characteristics and resource requirements of your workload. We'll assess CPU, memory, storage, and network utilization to determine the appropriate AWS resources needed to support your workload. This analysis will also help us identify any performance bottlenecks and scalability requirements.
Step 4: Cost Analysis
Evaluating the cost implications of migrating your workload to AWS is a crucial step. We'll estimate the expected costs of AWS resources, data transfer, storage, and any other relevant charges. By comparing these projected costs with your current on-premises infrastructure costs, we can determine the potential cost savings or cost increase associated with the migration.
Step 5: Security and Compliance Assessment
We take security and compliance seriously. During the assess phase, we'll evaluate the security and compliance requirements of your workload. This involves understanding your existing security controls, regulatory obligations, and data protection needs. Rest assured, AWS provides a range of security services and compliance frameworks that we can leverage to ensure a secure and compliant migration.
Step 6: Migration Readiness and Recommendations
Based on all the information we gather and analyse during the assess phase, we'll generate migration readiness reports and recommendations just for you. These reports will provide valuable insights into the complexity, risks, and feasibility of migrating your workload to AWS. They'll outline the necessary steps, prerequisites, and potential challenges involved in the migration process.
So, sit back, relax, and let Fusion5 take care of your workload assessment. We've got the expertise and experience to guide you through the process smoothly. Feel free to ask any questions or share any concerns you may have along the way.
