5 Points to Consider - Enterprise Road Map to AWS Cloud

  1. 1. Presenter NamePresenter TitleMonth Day, YearMigration Solution To Cloud
  2. 2. • 5% Organization Moved 50% Apps toCloud• 30% Moved to cloud based on customerrequirement• 41% Moved to cloud following industrytrend• 52% Moved to cloud to improve costs,productivity, agility
  3. 3. Why Cloud?
  4. 4. Cloud helps to− Manage Infrastructure Services− Increase Flexibility− Rapid Infrastructure− Cap-ex Free− Rapid Elasticity− Security− Resilience
  5. 5. Pressure points for CIO
  6. 6. CIO pressure points• What do you start with to move to cloud?• How can cloud drive considerable cost and agility benefits for yourorganization?• Does cloud seamlessly integrate with existing workload technologies?
  7. 7. Why migrate?Good riddance to boundaries

  9. 9. Why migrate?Because it’s not all ball bearings anymore
  10. 10. Web Applications− Self-contained Web Applications− Social Media Product Marketing Campaigns− Customer Training Sites− Video Portals (Transcoding and Hosting)− Pre-sales Demo Portal− Software Downloads− Trial Applications
  11. 11. Why migrate?Mobilizing healthier business
  12. 12. Green Field applications• Easier to build ground-off applications• Starting off is easier• You can focus more on development ratherthan operational hassles• Development team sees faster results

  30. 30. SaaS, PaaS or IaaS?− Service Level Agreement− Data Portability− Long Term Costs− User management− Security− Scalability Platform Management
  31. 31. Plan Phase – Cloud Assessment− WAN traffic− Data security And Management− Legacy Application Integration− Security and Compliance
  32. 32. Deploy Phase – Data MigrationApplication Data Migration:• Migrate Fileserver systems• Automated scripts for migration• Backups and Tape Drives• Evaluate options to move large sets of data to the Cloud e.g. AWSImport/Export
  33. 33. Deploy Phase – Data MigrationApplication Data Migration:Evaluate options to move large sets of data to the Cloud e.g. AWSImport/ExportBackups and Tape DrivesAutomated scripts for migrationMigrate Fileserver systems
  34. 34. Deploy Phase – Data MigrationDatabase Migration:− Profile the various storage options available in your vendor Cloud− Plan for uploading data in batches− Analyze your datasets and databases− Evaluate various RDBMS options in the Cloud− Ensure data encryption for securitye.g. Amazon RDS
  35. 35. Deploy Phase – Application MigrationForklift MigrationAll components are migrated to cloud atthe same time.Useful for:− Stateless applications− Tightly coupled applications− Self-contained applicationsHybrid MigrationAlso, known as Partial MigrationapproachFor example:− Batch processing in cloud− Application on premise− Integrate cloud applications withcloud incompatible legacyapplications
  36. 36. Optimize Phase – Leverage Cloud Architecture− Auto terminate under-utilized instances through AWS Auto Scale option− Application packaging for AMI construction− Improve data access efficiency
  37. 37. Optimize Phase - Optimize Cloud SetupApplication Re-engineeringAbility to restart on failureSeparation of tiered componentsExtract stateful components and make them statelessDecompose relational database
