The cloud offers transformative benefits—but getting there without interrupting key workflows, risking vital data, or dealing with costly delays remains a substantial technology management challenge. Meeting this challenge effectively requires a rapid scale up of skilled technical resources with experience overseeing enterprise-scale cloud migrations.

These resources, however, are often not cost effective for firms that won’t need the same scale of cloud support after the migration is complete. Once assembled, this team will face a truly dizzying array of vendors and service options.

Zen3 understands the best practices and targeted automation necessary to arrive at the benefits of the cloud without the pain and cost bloat of a poorly executed transition.

OUR PROCESS

01

Discovery Phase

In this phase, we evaluate the existing terrain of enterprise applications and data storage. With a particular focus on discovering any vital interdependences, we supplement our proven approach to cloud migration with original research based on each client’s technology environment.

02

Evaluation Phase

With the context firmly researched, more detailed planning for the migration can begin. This means setting the rules of the transfer, choosing between rehosting, refactoring, rewriting, replacing, or leaving-as-is applications on a case-by-case basis. Cost projections helps determine the best option marginal cases.

03

Piloting Phase

We begin by scaling up the team to work on migrating non-critical apps first, ensuring the process is sound before moving onto more ambitious transfers. Along the way, we plan to make sure the right mix of personnel (between Zen3 and the client’s internal team) is in place to execute the broader plan seamlessly.

04

Execution Phase

Once any issues that emerge during the pilot are resolved, execution can begin in earnest. We reassess and reprioritize workloads dynamically in response to the pilot, providing a migration process that reacts dynamically to head off issues before they become costly

null
User File Migration
We move files of any type or size, ensuring they’re not only moved intact, but with any functional relationships with other files retained.
null
Database Migration
We can move on premise SQL databases to the cloud with ease, moving to a cloud DB provider either pre-selected by the client or selected with our consultation.
null
Backup Migration
Cloud native backup makes management of enterprise-grade backup simpler and less resource intensive than ever.
null
Archive Migration
Move large scale archives to the cloud while configuring policies for the archival process.

CLOUD MIGRATION METHODOLOGY

Assessment

Audit the environment, identifying valuable migration opportunities and evaluating risk. This includes assessing application usage, configurations, and scripts.

Design

Prepare the overall environment for the cloud migration by creating a migration plan and designing an architecture tailored to client requirements.

Planning

A roadmap ensures the effort stays on-time, on budget, and imposes minimal operational disruptions. A pilot project helps scale up while testing for potential issues.

Migration & Testing

Initiate the migration, leveraging proven automation techniques for maximum efficiency where possible. Remediate and migrate all databases, document codes and configurations, and conduct tests to identify potential gaps.

Deploy

Go live, monitoring for emerging issues as system go on live for daily use. Ongoing management helps optimize for cost, performance and performance while maintaining the potential for forward-looking scalability.

Optimize

Analyze performance, manage security, and maintain policy compliance while minimizing click-heavy administrative chores, setting ups tags and alerts connected to custom metrics.
