The Approach

Based on the knowledge and experience in cloud migration across industry verticals, HashRoot defines a structured approach for rapid cloud migration. We evaluate all the key parameters including applications, workloads, and processes you currently use and devise a streamlined migration approach as follows.

Migration Planning


In the planning phase, our cloud consultants will work with you to get a clear understanding of your business requirements and objectives. Based on the findings we develop a preliminary business case for migration.

  • Identify strategic business outcomes
  • Defining cloud strategies
  • Creating a cloud migration plan

Identification and Analysis


In the next phase, we take steps to understand your IT portfolio and determines answers for three queries: What should be migrated? How to carry out migration? Where should be migrated?

  • Identify all existing workloads and applications
  • Identify the dependencies between applications
  • Analyze migration strategies to be employed

Design and Development


Your cloud architecture design needs to properly planned and carefully executed. Our cloud architects enable efficient, secure and economically savvy enterprise-level digital transformation.

  • Prototyping entire structure
  • Concluding cloud type(private, public or hybrid)
  • Setting up a secured cloud environment based on workload requirements

Pre-Migration


Pre-migration planning involves the identification of strategies for data migration, deciding migration priorities, specifying cloud-solution requirements, etc

  • Readiness assessment of migration infrastructure and tools
  • Benchmark migration
  • Network and storage connectivity validation

Migration Execution and Testing


As we have strategically identified the existing gaps and remedial actions, our migration process ensures a smooth journey to the cloud. After the entire process of migration, we ensure to check if the critical applications and processes perform exactly on the cloud.

  • Pilot migration
  • Identify issues and roadblocks
  • Validate cloud improvements
  • Perform acceptance testing

Production Handover


Before signing-off the project we perform Quality assurance and User Acceptance Testing. We address the issues and release the delivery. We also hand-over documentation that contains details about your infrastructure migration to the cloud.

  • QA and UAT
  • Release delivery
  • Documentation

The Migration Strategy

HashRoot ensures to define the right cloud migration strategy with the right cloud platform and plan a perfect roadmap for cloud transformation. We formulate proven expertise in adopting a cost-effective cloud migration strategy that aligns with the organization's requirements.

Take a look at our cloud migration strategies

Rehost

The most popular migration approach also known as “lift and shift” lets organizations to move quickly without any need to make any changes or optimize in the cloud. HashRoot possesses immense experience in successfully migrating servers to the cloud using the “Lift and Shift” approach.

Replatform

Are you an organization looking to migrate to a managed relational database to reduce the amount of time you spend in managing database? HashRoot has the ability to make this happen with “Replatform or “Lift, Tinker and Shift” approach that has the ability to achieve tangible benefits with few cloud optimizations without changing the core architecture of the application.

Repurchase

If your organization is willing to change the existing licensing model you have been using, HashRoot can help here as well. We can carry out this Data Only Migration with “Repurchasing or Drop and Shop” migration strategy.

Refactor

If your organization is looking to boost agility or improve business continuity by moving to a service-oriented architecture (SOA), we plunge into this strategy which is often the most expensive solution.

Retire

It is important to identify the IT assets that are no longer used and direct your attention towards maintaining the resources that are widely used. We propose this migration strategy in such cases, where we turn off the IT assets that are not used and boost your business case.

Retain

We propose this migration strategy when an organization is not ready to prioritize an application because there are some applications that you consider unsuitable for the cloud - or you are simply not ready to make the move.

A Phased Strategy For Migration

Cloud migration services from HashRoot helps businesses to leverage the full potential of the cloud by setting up a seamless, modern and secure IT cloud infrastructure. HashRoot’s cloud migration services formulate proven expertise in adopting a cost-effective cloud strategy with agile performance and security.

Cloud Assessment Phase


This is the initial phase where we understand our client’s business by identifying gaps between existing architecture and next-generation cloud architecture. We also determine which cloud strategy is suitable for achieving higher flexibility, agility and scalability. Our cloud assessment phase includes the following :

Technical And Functional Assessment


A technical assessment is required to understand which applications should be moved to the cloud in priority, which applications should be kept in-house, which applications should be re-written and which applications should be decommissioned. This phase covers the following

  • Identifying the right candidate for the cloud
  • Creating a dependency tree and classification chart
  • Identifying tools that can be reused
  • Identifying licensed products

Roadmap and Plan


We will construct a cloud migration roadmap to get an idea on prioritizing applications for migration, the effort required to migrate them, timeline and cost.
In this phase, we perform the following actions.


  • Documenting dependencies
  • Creating a dependency tree
  • Identifying tools that are to build or customize

Security And Compliance Assessment


Data security is very important and poses high-risk if not properly analyzed. Our security assessment covers the following

  • Understanding your risks, threats
  • Classifying data assets based on the sensitivity
  • Identifying the datasets to be moved
  • Identifying the datasets to be kept in-house

Proof of Concept Phase


In this phase, we pick an application which is cloud-friendly and then perform a migration and deployment test against that application and some dummy data. We conduct POC to provide a benchmark by testing ideas, cost, and assumptions.

Deploy The Cloud or Hybrid Environment


Provisioning Virtual Infrastructure

The initial phase in the cloud environment setup is to structure the virtual network. In the case of public clouds, the cloud service provider recommends the network structure in advance for the purpose of sustainability and automation. In the case of virtual private cloud implementations, matching network addressing spaces, namespaces, and other network aspects when connecting the VPN Virtual LAN to existing internal networks requires a significant amount of time and work.

Provisioning The Edge Firewall

To the edge of the internal network, we build a kind of virtual private network We build a kind of virtual private network Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and ties it to on-premises network resources. This acts as the gateway to the cloud service.

Provisioning Storage

In accordance with the architecture documents, our cloud migration experts build logical units on the cloud’s Storage Area Network (SAN).

Virtual Machine Deployment

The virtual machine deployment method lets us create separate virtual machines and attach them to their appropriate storage units.

Reconfigure the Domain Name Service (DNS)

The newly created VMs through the network gateways are updated in the name servers.

Test Network and Server Connectivity

Our cloud consultants perform network connectivity testing to identify performance characteristics and then measure them against the preferred targets from the architecture.

Update Documentation

Clear documentation that contains test results and the changes made to the initial architecture.

Configure Site-to-Site VPN

In case, if the architecture recommends a static site-to-site VPN connection, our cloud migration experts can implement and test it.

Configure Directory Service Connectivity

We ensure to implement and test the connections between the cloud service and the organization’s directory service. Also, the federation between the cloud service provider’s authentication system and the customer is ensured if specified in the architecture.
