Snapbricks Cloud Migration Assessment Framework (SCMAF)
Cloud is making a huge impact in the way customers engage with connected products, access data, design platforms & applications, and manage network infrastructure. It is at the center of every digital transformation blueprint.
While enterprises realize the benefits of moving to the cloud, like operational cost savings, seamless performance and business scalability, many of them still struggle to define a clear cloud migration strategy.
eInfochips’ Snapbricks Cloud Migration Assessment Framework (SCMAF) is designed to assist customers in evaluating their on-premise application(s) and workloads for cloud migration.
With proven methodologies and tools, our cloud experts engage with clients in a two-phase process:
In the first phase, an objective assessment for cloud migration is carried out in two weeks. A migration suitability analysis that helps determine the readiness of each application and prioritizes them for migration to the cloud is carried out.
In this phase, eInfochips’ Cloud Solution Architect engages with the customer and discovers the scope, business and technical drivers for moving to the cloud. The cloud architect carries out a top down evaluation of 30+ attributes like performance, architecture, financial attributes, risks, operations, security & compliance, business criticality, etc. to understand the applications/workloads that can benefit most from early migration to the cloud.
In this phase, the application complexity and potential benefits for cloud migration are finalized along with migration choice from Re-host, Refactor or Rebuild.
In the second phase, which lasts for four weeks, first a technical assessment based on 20+ parameters like server sizing, network, database, security, compliance, VMs etc. is carried out. Migration strategy like Rebuild/Refactor/Re-Architect is decided after assessing the code base. Re-host compatibility evaluation is carried out by assessing the production replica environment using industry known assessment/migration tools. . A variety of AWS or Azure migration tools, along with eInfochips’ proprietary framework, is used for assessment evaluation. Total cost of ownership is also calculated in this phase.
After the technical assessment, finally migration recommendations are provided to the customer. A detailed cloud assessment report covering cloud migration strategy and approach, cost, benefits, set of migration activities, plan, cloud consumption cost analysis and target high-level architecture is provided to the customer.
