Migrations

Migrations

Most migration work we undertake is the process of moving from the use of one operating system environment to another operating system environment requested by our clients. However, migrations can also involve upgrading to new hardware and software packages

In general, the migration process includes making sure the new environment’s features are exploited, old settings do not require changing and that current applications continue to work. Although in some cases it could be a complete refresh of systems retaining existing data.

Companies can conduct small-scale migration projects that move a single system, or take on large-scale migration projects that involve many systems, new applications or a redesigned network.

Database Migration

Database migration is the migration of data from one kind of database to another kind of database. This usually requires converting the data into a common format that can be output from the old database and input into the new database. Since the new database may be organized differently, it may be necessary to write a program that can process the migrating files.

Data Migration

Data Migration is the transfer of data between data storage systems, data formats or computer systems. A data migration project is usually undertaken to replace or upgrade servers or storage equipment, for a website consolidation, to conduct server maintenance or to relocate a data center.

Application Migration

Application Migration is the process of moving an application program from one environment to another, such as the migration from an on-premises enterprise server to a cloud provider’s environment. This type of migration project may require the use of middleware products to bridge any gaps between technologies.

Cloud Migration

Cloud migration is the process of moving data, applications or other business elements from an organization’s on-site computers to the cloud, or moving them from one cloud environment to another. Like application migration, moving company data to a cloud service provider’s environment may require the use of middleware, such as a cloud integration tool, to bridge any gaps between the cloud vendor’s and the customer’s technologies.

Cloud-to-cloud migration projects are complicated because the data being moved is stored and managed remotely and controlled by external organizations that are often in multiple locations. As a result, special considerations must be made in regards to data privacy, interoperability, data and application portability, data integrity, business continuity, and security

Software Migration

Software migration is the transfer of a company’s programs used to operate computers and related devices into a new, upgraded operating system.

System Migration

System migration is the transfer of business process IT resources to a newer hardware infrastructure or a different software platform for example:

Physical to Virtual 

Migration of operating systems or application programs and data from a computer’s main hard disk to a virtual machine or a disk partition

Virtual to Virtual

Migration of operating systems, application programs and data from a virtual machine or disk partition to another virtual machine or disk partition. 

Virtual to Physical

Migration of operating systems, application programs and data from a virtual machine or disk partition to a computer’s main hard disk.
