Amazon Migration Acceleration Program (MAP)
As an Amazon Migration Acceleration Partner, Mobilise have a proven track record in migrating workloads to AWS securely, on-time and with structured project governance. Our expertise as an AWS Well Architected Partner, ensures we can design an AWS environment for your workloads that follows AWS best practices, is highly secure and cost-effective. Furthermore, Mobilise have access to AWS funding that can offset professional services costs undertaken during a migration.
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.
Mobilise follow AWS tried and tested migration paths which include
- Assess – creating a total cost of ownership (TCO) model to build business cases for migration,
- Mobilising – create a migration plan and detailed business case, migrate pilot workloads,
- Migrate & Modernise – begin large scale migration whilst adopting cloud native services.
