The importance of
cloud adoption framework and its guidance for
implementation was explained to the leadership team. The
journey began with identifying the motivations for
migrating the workloads to the cloud. A set of
applications were identified as first migration lot.
Simultaneously a preparation for landing zone was
planned, these were predominantly focused on the
security controls & governance so that a minimum vaiable
governance architecture was implemented.
migration plan was prepared stating phases of
Application Assessment, Migration Strategy &
implementation. The assessment phase involved of
eliciting information about the application components,
its technology stack, deployment architecture,
application dependencies, the user base, the performance
need and other non functional requirements. Based on the
assessment a re-hosting application strategy for
Windows, SQL server & Linux server VMs was adopted to
migrate the application.
architecture was designed with the right sized SKUs to
meet the SLA and the performance of the application. A
BCDR plan was also prepared as it was one of the
outcomes and the motivation for the migration. A plan
for elasticity was also shared during the planning
phase. A Cost estimate was provided for each workload
and the resource tagging plan with various cost alerts
were also planned.
deployment of the first workload the migration plan was
optimized to further reduce the migration timeframe..
