Microsoft Azure Cloud Migration Services - FAQs

  • What are Azure cloud migration services?

    -

    Azure Cloud Migration Services entitles the transition of an enterprise’s entire IT landscape including backend infra, datacenter assets, compute, storage, networks, databases, platforms, architectures, and applications to the virtual world, accessible on-demand via the internet. The assets are modernized or virtualized on the Azure datacenter (distantly located magnanimous computing infrastructure accessible to users on a subscription basis).

    Hence, enterprises need not worry about IT management, maintenance, upgrades, security, availability, and scalability as they are administered by the cloud services providers.

  • How does Azure cloud migration work?

    -

    Azure Cloud Migration can occur in multiple ways. The simplest approach is to lift and shift all resources and IT assets onto the Microsoft cloud. However, realistically, most assets need to be tailored, refactored, reorganized, or re-architected to leverage the cloud platform best. This entitles customizing, virtualizing, and optimizing assets at the core levels to enable a frictionless transition to the Azure cloud.

  • What are 4 types of Azure migration?

    -

    Azure migration can be deployed in public, private, hybrid, or in multicloud model. The public cloud model entitles the firm to access a pool of shared cloud resources with all other users of the adopted cloud platform. This guarantees the economy of scale, availability, scalability, and more. Private cloud deployment defines a fixed cloud-based architecture for a certain firm that isn’t accessible to everyone. This is primarily availed by large organizations handling high volumes of critical, highly personal information that can’t be risked on a shared model. Hybrid cloud delivers the best of both worlds as a company’s on-prem private IT assets can be connected with a public cloud network basis shareable gateways, interfaces, and protocols. Multicloud entitles multiple cloud environments being deployed for variable operations in an organization that may or may not sync with each other.

  • What are the benefits of Azure cloud migration?

    -

    Azure Cloud migration has ushered in a revolution in the IT world. Instead of having private deployed, on-premise costly IT infrastructure with resources packed with management, maintenance, operational, and upgrade woes, all infra can be accessed, scaled on-demand from the internet via a subscription fee. This lowers IT hassles and costs, introduces zero operational hitches during peak traffic times (virtual cloud servers scalable on-demand), integrates top-notch architectural security, and ensures uninterrupted availability and continuity (DR on Azure). Enterprises can also avail of a custom suite of Azure cloud solutions (From a family of 200+ tools) to modernize, transform, digitize daily operations.
