Cloud Migrations with Velez
The cloud is a safe, fast, efficient, cheap and reliable online storage space for your data. Moving between operating system environments- a place where a computer program is capable of being run- is called migrations. Cloud Migration is the process of moving any data to the cloud. Migrations can be made on a large scale, such as moving a whole system or network, or on a small scale, such as moving one single system. Migrations can be needed for multiple reasons, maybe your database is too small, there was a problem with the database, or some companies like to move to a collocation (a rented space where storage systems can be kept).
Our team at Velez uses the software Azure Service Bus or SnapLogic for our migrations, to ensure your security, privacy, interoperability (the ability to exchange information), data integrity and business continuity is kept as a priority and protected. We can move your data from a data centre to the cloud, within the cloud, or from the cloud back to a data centre, whatever is best for you.
Why you need to migrate to the cloud
There are many types of migration, meaning it is something most businesses take part in. Here at Velez, we make sure there is an option for everyone.
If you’re aiming to move your organised data to the cloud, we’ll perform a database migration. We’ll use a programme that will convert your data to make it readable, therefore it is moved safely and none of it is lost.
For moving random and unorganised data to the cloud, we will use the process of data migration to organise the data and move it to where is best for you.
Application migration can be used to move your computer systems or applications to the cloud safely, whether it’s from a sever to the cloud or from public to private cloud environment. A middleware product will be used to connect the two applications to ensure your data is passed through securely.
Software migration is simply moving your software to the cloud, and system migration is moving an entire system to the cloud.
We provide a service at Velez that ensures your data is moved safely and securely, without you having to worry. Whether it’s virtual to virtual, virtual to physical, or physical to virtual, we can migrate any data you need us to. However, we recommend moving to the cloud, as there are only benefits that can come of it.
Benefits of moving to the cloud
- Saving Money
If data is uploaded to the cloud, there is no need to buy expensive storage systems or equipment. You can simply just rent/ pay for the capacity of space you need and increase it or decrease it at your own demand.
You can scale up and down the amount of storage you need, meaning there is no limit to what you can create and store. This allows you to continue expanding and growing without having to worry about not being able to store data or losing it., as we’ll ensure all your data is safe in the cloud.
- Updating Software
As all software is located at an off-site server, all system updates will be completed automatically by our Velez team- your cloud service provider. We will update systems with the latest software and ensure you don’t have to worry about maintenance with your IT programmes or infrastructures. This way we save not only your time but also the money it costs to maintain your software systems.
- Disaster recovery
When moving your data to the cloud, we ensure you do not have to worry about data protection. You can have security that your data is covered by the cloud, meaning it is protected against natural disaster or power failure, as we have a backup of your data in a different location. This ensures the continuation of your business continuity and productivity, even when something goes wrong.
- Shared storage
With your data being on the cloud, you can work together with different people or businesses on projects in real time, from anywhere in the world. This allows your company to develop good connections, work faster and be able to access your work from anywhere at any time on any device. This allows your company to expand at a rapid rate, allowing you to get ahead of competitors.
- Work from anywhere
Getting tired of the same environments? With the cloud, data can be accessed anywhere, meaning you can take their projects and data with you and work on it wherever you go, as long as you have a device that connects to the internet. You can work anywhere around the world, meaning all data is portable and accessible at any time.
- Data Security
When the worst-case scenario happens, and hardware is lost, damaged or stolen, it’s even worse when you realise you have lost all your data too. With the cloud, all your data is backed up, meaning you are protected from accidents like this. Don’t rely on just one device to protect your data, always back it up on the cloud.
