Addressing Your Business’s Needs With Cloud Software Development
Is the cost of the cloud a concern?
Companies typically save between 30% and 60% on cloud-native applications that are adapted correctly at the architectural level to optimize resource usage by contrast to what is typically called for in local hosting methods. Our consultants can include a resource utilization optimization strategy, as well as offer design, implementation, and continuous management assistance.
Do you fear transition-induced downtime?
As your application sees more traffic, it becomes increasingly difficult to scale resources on the fly in order to meet the heightened demand. You can either wait until the storage needs are rendered unmanageable, or you can save headaches and money by moving through the transitional phase sooner rather than later.

Assessing Your App For Cloud Migration
Once you’ve decided the type of cloud and the model it’s time to determine whether or not your applications are ready to operate from the cloud. Here are a few key aspects to think about.
Complexity Of App Design
Because certain conventional applications are too complex and tightly coupled, customers may not have the ability to rework them. The most important criterion in the success of any migration is an app’s distributed architecture and its scalability. Cloudmaze and PaaSLane can assist you in determining your application’s readiness for the cloud. Evaluation of the app’s readiness for migration can be determined by multiple tools, all of which are available through AWS’ one-stop-shop Migration Hub service.
Complexity Of Integration
Payment gateways, online providers, third-party vendors, and external storage are all integration points for each app, so consideration of how each of these dependencies would be affected by migration is important. Unexpected communication issues may arise during the process. Also, you should be able to anticipate and address any authentication issues which could arise. Identifying the integration points is the most time-consuming, and arguably the most critical task you will face. Because many older apps are light on functional and non-functional details, each module may need to be thoroughly reviewed on an individual basis, a complicated venture when the hundreds of currently running applications are considered.
Many of the encountered hardships could be resolved by combining a commercial or open-source asset discovery tool with the developer team’s familiarity with the app. With the use of a discovery tool, you can see all server configurations within the network, including details about connectivity. So if a data center on your network is host to 100 apps, a discovery tool gives you both a broad view of the whole system, as well as the ability to drill down to find out details to more specific granularities for each of them.
HP DDMA and BMC Atrium are some of the best-known tools for asset discovery. Cloudamize is a tool that performs automated machine discovery and determines inter-application dependencies by setting up a dependency map.
Host Operating System
Once cloud migration has been decided upon, it is important to know that you will be able to deploy the applications on the same operating system. Since your applications can only run in a specific OS or a specific version of that OS, they may not establish proper compatibility with the cloud provider. That means that you might either need to scramble to find a viable cloud provider substitute or scrap the migration plans completely. Most cloud providers, for example, do not support 32-bit OS options. Some may have subscription requirements that might be unexpected. The point is, doing your research ahead of time is vital to the smooth execution of the project.
Since the database is a critical component in any application, customers invest a lot in reliable database servers, as well as licensing. Migrating massive amounts of data is no small feat, so you may not want to move it at this time. No matter the timing of the process, it is important to ensure the reliability of migration methods. It is also important to assure a fail-safe procedure that allows for an opportunity to deal with any unforeseen problems by rolling back.
Since most cloud servers provide proprietary migration services, it is important to conduct a full, preemptive evaluation before initiating the process. For instance, the Migration hub services provided by AWS claim that they will accelerate and simplify the discovery and migration from your data centers. Other third-party vendors who provide migration services include Cloudbeam, CloudEndure Live Migration, ATADATA ATMotion, and Racemi DynaCenter.
If your application engages in multitasking, think twice about engaging in cloud migration since most cloud migration services do not support it.
