Embarking on a cloud migration journey signifies a pivotal shift from your current infrastructure to an optimized environment leveraging Google Cloud's robust offerings. This transformation is not a singular event but a strategic progression through four definitive phases:
We begin with a comprehensive assessment to gain a deep understanding of your existing environment, assessing which workloads are being migrated and which VMs could support them. This involves inventorying your apps, identifying dependencies, calculating costs, and benchmarking performance to lay a solid foundation for migration.
In this phase, we set up the basic infrastructure for the VM migration. This phase encompasses setting up your identity management, resource hierarchies, project structures, networking, and crafting a migration strategy that aligns with your organizational goals.
We start transitioning your workloads to Google Cloud with a systematic deployment process. During the migration, we may fine-tune your infrastructure to accommodate new demands, ensuring a seamless integration of your workloads into the cloud.
This phase is focused on maximizing efficiency in performance, cost, scalability, and integrating next-gen tech like AI and machine learning to help your business drive innovation.
If your organization wants to set up its Google Cloud infrastructure without using any previous workloads, our team can help build your infrastructure from scratch by building your custom-design landing zone.
Elements of a Landing Zone
Identity & Access Management
Onboarding users securely and efficiently, including identity provisioning options, architecture decisions, and strategies for consolidating existing user accounts
Resource Hierarchy & Policies
Structuring your resources on Google Cloud by taking into consideration your organization's requirements, compliance, and future events
Choosing the right network design based on factors including centralized or decentralized control, security requirements, and scalability
Taking important security measures such as service account key management, data exfiltration mitigation, continuous monitoring, and more
