CAF Based SAP Workload Assessment & Migration Blueprint

Many large enterprises and even SMBs rely on SAP applications to drive the core functions of their business, and they support these applications on costly, dedicated resources that are not even agile. This makes it hard for them to take advantage of cool features in newer SAP solutions, such as S/4HANA. Migrating to the cloud delivers efficiency and flexibility with no downtime. Here are the list of deliverables Cloud4C helps with in their journey of migrating their SAP workloads to Azure.

Application Modernization Services

Enterprises have been dependent on traditional data warehouses to ingest, model, and store data for ages. In a typical IT environment, conventional data warehouses would extract, transform, and load (ETL) jobs to process data in batches. However, handling millions of queries per month comes at a considerable cost. Blending exabytes of data from various historical and streaming sources such as internal data across spreadsheets, third-party data, and big data stores also makes business analysis difficult and time-consuming.

As businesses explore options to shift from traditional data warehouses to meet their demands and scale business operations, cloud platforms have gained popularity. Whether it is public, private, or hybrid, enterprises are continuing to move their workloads and applications to the cloud infrastructure. Gartner predicts that more than 50 percent of organizations using the cloud today will have all their workloads in the cloud by 2021.

Enterprises will no longer lift-and-shift into the cloud but will instead refactor and rebuild directly in the cloud. While enterprises might retain some mission-critical workloads on-premise, most enterprise data will be in the cloud. At Cloud4C, automated administrative solutions facilitate database auditing to capacity management to platform-supported disruption management, upgrading, and patching - easing complex and voluminous migrations without data loss and downtime.

Cloud4C: A Trusted Partner in the Application Transformation and Migration Journey

Cloud4C Application Modernization helps enterprises in maintaining, extending, deploying and managing their applications so that they meet the current and future business needs. This depends on their situation which will be driven by factors such as strategic business initiatives, application architecture, time, cost and available skills Various approaches and techniques for Application Modernization that Cloud4C supports.

Rehost

“Rehost,” also known as “Lift & Shift,” is a common approach to migrating applications to the Cloud. We simply would move the application to Azure with minimal adjustments to the infrastructure as a whole.

This Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) enables enterprises to immediately reduce operational costs, free up space in their data center, and considerably accelerate any follow-up to their migration process.

Refactor

“Refactor” is about customizing an application, so that it fexibility that they offer. Essentially, we would be switching to a PaaS model. is better aligned with the Cloud environment. This often includes modifying the application itself and part of the code to make more use of Cloud-native functions and the

With Refactoring, developers can re-use languages, containers, and the framework in which they’ve invested.

Rearchitect

Some obsolete applications aren’t compatible with the Cloud due to architectural decisions made while building the app. In this case, it would be wise to consider “Rearchitecting.”

This allows us to divide the application into several functional components that can be individually adapted and further developed. The individual components, or “microservices,” can be individually transferred to the Cloud.

Rebuild

A “Rebuild” migration strategy means that we completely redevelop the application on a PaaS infrastructure – application. It involves removing existing code and unlike with Rearchitect, where we only modify parts of the redesigning the application in the Cloud, after which we can utilize innovative features on the Cloud provider’s platform. A Cloud-native application is cheap to use and highly scalable.

Replace

existing application with SaaS. When an existing SaaS application can provide all the necessary functionalities, Replace is an excellent option to save costs related to IT development. A “Replace” migration strategy completely replaces an

Workload Monitoring and Automation

The strategic use of automation enables us to protect our customers from harm. The automation of managed services directly affects the Top-line and Bottom-line. No downtime, always secure data and infra translates to cost savings. Automating any repeatable and routine tasks allows enterprises to save on resources. At Cloud4C, we have automated some of the key functions of managed services.

Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM)

This enables the tracking of important IT functions such as diagnostic alerts and performance reviews so that the team is aware of the issues with the infra. It reduces risk of failure or on-site visits for correcting the issues.

Professional Service Automation (PSA)

Administrative tasks, billing and customer account management is automated so that enterprises can focus more on their business instead of such routine tasks.

Auto Application Start

This automation reduces the Application Start within 2 Minutes of the VM being up post a VM Reboot; The total VM outage has been reduced from 30 minutes to less than 3 minutes in total per SID (in case of SAP deployments).

Auto resolution

Auto Resolution kicks in when the conditions mentioned in the logic are met and performs the deletion action.

Health checks, Log Compilation and Alerting

Health checks, Log Compilation and Alerting of Databases and Applications are automated. This helps in proactively identifying the Error/Alerts symptoms by constantly monitoring them. Also helps in identifying the Error patterns ahead and reducing the outages proactively.

Replication status checks

Automating this function helps in maintaining the DB Replication and alerts if the replication fails.

Virtual Patching

Automated Patch deployment at Cloud4C enables enterprises to focus on their priorities while being assured of the mitigation of threats arising due to vulnerabilities. It also accelerates the vulnerability remediation for enterprises across hybrid environments.

Secure and Cost Optimized CloudOps

We can help harness the real power of cloud with automated and secure managed services.
