Cloud migration refers to transferring of an organization's digital resources, services, and applications to a cloud environment that is protected by a firewall.
Belitsoft aims to minimize physical resource requirements and expenditures while maximizing productivity for your organization via their cloud migration services. To ensure a hassle-free migration from on-site to the cloud, we employ proven methodologies and approaches, and craft solutions that cater to your business needs.
Our cloud migration solutions involve a comprehensive analysis and assessment of your company's objectives and demands. We arrange an effective plan to perform a smooth transition and complete the successful migration of legacy infrastructure to Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud.
An investment in on-premises hosting and data centers can be a waste of money nowadays, because cloud technologies provide significant advantages, such as usage-based pricing and the capacity to easily scale up and down. In addition, your downtime risks will be near-zero in comparison with on-premises infrastructure. Migration to the cloud from the on-premises model requires time, so the earlier you start, the better.

Business Benefits of Cloud Computing Migration
Cloud-based applications are user-friendly and offer a variety of smart features, which save time and cut down on installation and licensing costs, and create new investment opportunities. Many businesses are migrating to the cloud to improve their success.
Accelerated Deployment. Cloud computing adopts DevOps practices by providing a more structured approach to software and application deployment, which can otherwise be a haphazard task. Additionally, cloud services eliminate the need for server setup and OS installation, enabling enterprises to swiftly launch server and resource arrangements.
Reliability and Security. Reputable cloud service providers ensure security during the cloud experience, including protection against data and application breaches. They also proactively deploy automatic security updates to keep systems safe from vulnerabilities.
Simplified Infrastructure. Cloud services make the installation of infrastructure and the management of networks easier as users can specify their requirements and start the services. This saves valuable business hours, which can be used for exploring other business growth opportunities.
Personalized Services. Cloud providers offer auto-scaling capabilities, allowing owners to adjust their usage or requirement of cloud services according to their needs. This enables cost savings and allocation based on demand, as well as avoids downtimes.
Efficient Monitoring. Modern cloud services offer specialized tools to monitor security or downtime concerns within the system, allowing for timely detection and resolution. This streamlines the process of manually verifying each element or application. These tools centralize the monitoring process, as opposed to the traditional approach.
Reduced Dependence on Data Centers. Cloud Computing can help reduce the number of data centers required by an organization, which minimizes maintenance costs, including expenses for cooling. This facilitates the merging of sensitive data into a solitary secure data center.
Enhanced Key Metrics Logging. Backup and Logging Services provide valuable information about what went wrong and where in the event of an outage. Backups can help restore operations that were disrupted by an outage, allowing you to get back to normal quickly.

Cloud Migration Services
Choosing a Cloud Provider
The professional team advises for and clarifies on efficient cloud provider choices to deliver the expected business value for your company from the cloud. To achieve this, we assess a cloud hosting cost and examine your IT infrastructure to confirm the provider’s cloud platform, along with approved technologies that align with your current infrastructure and maintain your objectives.
Creating a Proof of Concept
Assessing Expenses and Scope of Work
Belitsoft’s team estimates the migration time period, the required resources, and the expenses upon the cloud migration strategy. Our expertise prevents you from purchasing a bunch of irrelevant services. We suggest ways to decrease expenses, and advise you on alternatives for deployments, leading to a better cost profile.
Modernizing Software for the Cloud
Our developers modernize your software to lower the cloud migration process costs, meet the requirements of the selected cloud provider, and improve its performance and scalability. It includes applying active geo-replication, containerization, automated code refactoring, switching to microservice-based architecture, adapting a database structure, modernizing your operational databases to enhance security, and other modernization techniques such as using VMs or containers to achieve this.
By migrating to cloud databases, you can efficiently and flexibly manage your data on a global scale. You can automate the movement of your data into BigQuery, and choose to run Microsoft SQL Server on a Compute Engine or use managed Cloud SQL to lower your infrastructure and licensing expenses.
App Migration to Cloud
We have experience in a smooth transition for the workers with near-zero downtime. Our development team migrates your IT infrastructure, including migration to containers or Virtual Machines, and enhancing security. When the entire IT infrastructure is ready, it goes live in the cloud.
Further Software Optimization and Cost Reduction
The experience we’ve gained shows that stakeholders expand the benefits of using cloud services immensely after the business transitioning to the cloud and getting the first tangible assets of cloud hosting. We support you to lower the bill for cloud based solutions and continue improving the infrastructure by performing further software optimization after migrating to the cloud.
Cloud Migration Strategy
For moving your application to the cloud, a systematic strategy is necessary to ensure efficient migration. The complexity of your environment will determine the best approach to take.
Rehosting, also referred to as "lift and shift," involves migrating your current physical or virtual servers to the cloud without making significant architectural modifications.
Replatforming involves optimizing your application for the cloud by migrating your self-hosted infrastructure to managed services while making minimal changes to your architecture.
Repurchasing describes changing the licensing model of an application to make it more cloud-friendly and accessible.
Refactoring involves making modifications to an application to take advantage of SaaS and PaaS based technologies, which can help reduce costs.
Keeping some on-premise solutions can be a cost-effective approach when the cost of migrating them to the cloud outweighs their value. This is beneficial when the on-premise solutions have already depreciated before the migration, but a thorough analysis is required to make such a decision.
Retiring is a decommissioning of unused applications or combining them with other dependent applications to reduce costs significantly.
