Published on 25 July 2023

Mengungkap 7 Strategi Migrasi Cloud untuk Digitalisasi Bisnis Anda

Cloud migration strategy has become a hot topic amid discussions in the era of digital transformation. This strategy is an effective way to help companies take advantage of the latest technology to improve application efficiency, flexibility, scalability, and maximize user experience. 

However, the cloud migration process still poses challenges for some companies. Many users still find it difficult to fully harness the potential of the cloud, and some are worried of security threats and a lack of knowledge about cloud implementation. 

When a company considers migrating to the cloud, it is essential to determine how the migration will be executed by devising the right strategy. Generally, a cloud migration strategy takes into account factors such as the company’s needs, the IT skills of employees, and the architecture of the applications and data to be migrated. 

So, what are the important strategies and considerations that should not be overlooked when migrating to the cloud? Explore the details in the following article. 

The Importance of Defining a Cloud Migration Strategy 

Pentingnya Menentukan Strategi untuk Migrasi ke Cloud

Cloud migration involves transferring applications and data from on-premises environments, such as private servers or corporate data centers, to the cloud. This process aims to enhance performance, application and data security, all while optimizing operational budgets. 

However, executing a successful cloud migration is a complex task that requires thorough preparation. It is crucial to strategize the entire migration process to mitigate issues during or after the transition. 

Key strategies for a successful cloud migration include identifying necessary cloud features and the data to be integrated into the cloud, selecting an appropriate cloud service provider, providing employee training, and establishing a migration timeline. 

7 Effective Cloud Migration Strategies by Dynatrace 

According to Dynatrace, a successful data migration process begins with a comprehensive strategy for the entire migration chain. Here are seven crucial steps to consider during a cloud migration: 

1. Rehost

Migrate applications to a different hosting platform. This involves moving your existing applications to a new infrastructure in the cloud. 

2. Re-platform

Upgrade your applications by migrating to other platforms, such as using machine images from vendors, containerization, and implementing CI/CD pipelines for more efficient deployment. 

3. Refactor 

Modernize and containerize your applications while also making necessary code changes for improved performance and scalability. 

4. Repurchase

Consider migrating to Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions or utilizing products available in a marketplace for specific functionalities. 

5. Relocate 

Move your applications to the cloud, maintaining the same architecture but in a different geographical location or data center. 

6. Retire

Identify and disable any applications or infrastructure components that are no longer needed, reducing unnecessary costs. 

7. Retain

Retain certain applications or data in their current state when it’s not practical or necessary to migrate them to the cloud.

Challenges When Migrating to the Cloud and Sizing the Right Infrastructure

Tantangan Saat Melakukan Migrasi Cloud

When migrating to the cloud, determining the correct infrastructure size for your servers is crucial. This is not only important for calculating the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), but also to adapt to the frequent changes in cloud server capacity and performance rules. Proper sizing helps you avoid resource over-provisioning or shortages. 

Having excessively available servers can result in wasted CPU and memory, inefficient resource utilization, and increased costs. Ensuring the right infrastructure size allows your servers to operate optimally based on their capacity and workload, keeping operational expenses low. 

Moreover, during a cloud migration, customers typically want visibility into the migration process, including changes, performance metrics, usage patterns, connectivity, and any unforeseen issues. Real-time monitoring, including Peak Activity analysis, can assist customers in identifying when applications are most or least used. This information is valuable for scheduling migration periods to minimize user impact. 

Customers often seek comprehensive comparisons of various components, such as front-end user experience and infrastructure performance. Some cloud providers, like Dynatrace, offer dashboard features that enable customers to create customized dashboards for critical components. These dashboards facilitate the evaluation of system performance before and after migration, aiding in assessing the migration’s impact.
