Solution Overview

A proven four phase migration process, defined by Microsoft to enable migration at scale.

Assess

You need to understand your existing environment before you begin migration planning. Microsoft tools like Azure Migrate automate the process of assessing on-premises resources including servers, storage and databases. This assessment data contributes to a larger migration plan that includes migration interdependencies, migration strategies by workload, migration schedule, teams and responsibilities, as well as stakeholder management.

Migrate

The Olikka Migration Factory is designed to move workloads and any related services with speed and scale.  Starting with workloads that suit rapid migration such as server rehosting (lift and shift), and then moving to other workloads that suit refactoring, or replatforming.

Migrations are completed within a sprint and each workload grouped by migrated strategy (rehost, replatform etc).  At the completion of each migration, operational procedures and documentation are updated to reflect services hosted on Azure.

Operations and Optimisations

As workloads are migrated, operational procedures and processes need to be updated to reflect the new state of your environment - this includes procedures such as business continuity, backup/restores and application updates.

For workloads that were rehosted (VM migration) this is an opportunity to leverage cloud native services to modernise and optimise your applications.

Secure and Manage

After migration, it is critical to secure migrated workloads from internal and external threats. This involves; data encryption, implementing Azure Security Center recommendations, securing web apps, installing or updating antimalware and review access to subscriptions.
