What is sometimes referred to as a ‘Lift & Shift’, this involves migrating existing workloads to the cloud with no fundamental changes. This process can be automated with tooling such as AWS Application Migration Service and Infrastructure as Code.
This migration is predominantly a Lift & Shift with a few modifications, such as taking advantage of AWS Managed Services e.g. moving existing databases from traditional VMs to Amazon RDS. Low hanging fruit items are implemented during migration whilst no underlying core architecture is modified.
This migration type is often associated with migrating existing workloads to a SaaS offering, for example migrating an on-premise version of MongoDB to their cloud offering MongoDB Atlas on AWS. This migration is often a small part of a much larger Lift & Shift exercise.
This migration is driven by strong business needs and involves re-architecting solutions to become cloud-native, so applications can take advantage of scale, cost saving measures and performance increases the cloud can offer. Whilst being the most expensive migration pattern, this tends to be the most beneficial.
