Migration to Microsoft Azure Overview

How to benefit from Azure?

Gartner predicts that over 75% of medium sized and large companies will deploy a multi-cloud and hybrid IT strategy by 2021. Legacy database migration to Azure is an advanced solution that offers enterprises the benefits of the latest innovations. Cloud strategy enables enterprises to encapsulate the best practices in storing, computing, and analyzing data.

Azure Database is a scalable enterprise data services platform that helps to manage databases in the cloud. A move to a tuneable, smart, and flexible database on Azure will contribute greatly to your modernization project. For sure you are aware of scalability, long-term saving and all the other advantages of migration to Azure cloud platform.

Before starting the project you need to scrutinously evaluate the workloads for migration and additional operations required to ensure system solidness. With a plan on the table you will not exceed the budget and timeframe.

Current database environment assessment

Cloud modernization projects require great time investment, and specific expertise to succeed. Actually database schema and data conversion can be the most challenging part of the infrastructure modernization project. It may involve integration settings and cause downtime of the working process. You need to check whether all the workloads are compatible with the Azure environment. If you have several integrated system elements and applications, it’s vital to assess them and plan how to transfer the entire system to Azure.

Ways of implementing Azure

A properly designed database migration helps to avoid data loss and facilitates future database operation. Actually significant results can be reached by implementing different modernization strategies: software replacement, elements rebuilding and re-architecting.

  • Lift-and-Shift. This technique refers to transferring a software element to cloud or a new physical infrastructure with no code features modification.
  • Rehosting. The same goes to this strategy. While shifting to a new cloud platform it may require to change the host configuration.
  • Refactoring. This technique refers to improving and optimizing existing code structure without altering its external behavior.
  • Replatforming. Sometimes migration of software to a new platform with no or minimal changes of the code functioning is sufficient to improve.
  • Replacement. In some cases a complete software component elimination is required to efficiently run your business processes.
  • Rebuilding. Rewriting or rebuilding a piece of software from scratch according to technical specifications requires higher costs but provides you with significant results. For example, rewriting existing code and applications for the sake of effectively functioning in line with new business requirements.
  • Moreover, instead of constantly rewriting some parts of a program, modernization can be effectuated by using existing code for an API creation.
  • Re-architecting. This strategy is about altering the code in its entirety with the new features and capabilities in order to meet all the requirements.

Choose Azure Cloud Technology and learn more details about how to perform migration to it.

The main reason why companies consider the transfer to Azure are flexibility and additional features. Maintaining legacy databases on Azure may cause inconveniences and incompatibility risks. Almost any database can be transferred to the cloud environment as is using a lift-and-shift or rehost methods. But that is far from an efficient solution for an enterprise.

We offer source databases (Oracle, Teradata, Informix and other) conversion to any target database. Then the converted database can be placed on Azure. This strategy implements some features of rehosting, but offers much more benefits. You will avoid legacy infrastructure risks and facilitate future system optimization and integration issues.

Legacy database conversion prior to the migration to cloud can bring your solution to the next level of compatibility and maximize your investment return. It is better to change RDBMS provider for the sake of data consolidation and integration issues. Actually you benefit from both cloud environment opportunities and new platform features.

Select the right migration solution for your workloads

Migrating IT- infrastructure between database providers may seem to be a complex and risky process. You can use an automated solution - Ispirer Toolkit for moving your system to Azure cloud. With our toolkit you are able to migrate your workloads from on-premise legacy database to a fully managed one on Azure with confidence. You enjoy a simple migration process and full compatibility with a new database on Azure. Ispirer migration solution helps you to discover, assess, and migrate on-premises servers, apps, and data to the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Ispirer Toolkit was designed to maintain the integrity of mission-critical databases. Embrace both a fast and smooth migration and Azure innovations. We offer a set of powerful instruments for database SQL objects, business logic and data migration into any of the supported target platforms on cloud.

What Our Customers Say

"Our overall experience with Ispirer tool is positive and we had a great success in everything during the migration process. I would like to recommend Ispirer MnMTK to everyone as this software provides fast and efficient migration results."

"The Ispirer team turned out to be very responsive, our customization requests were processed very quickly.Thanks to the tool, the only thing left to do was to fix 2 or 3 statements that were not automated during the migration process."

"Ispirer MnMTK was crucial to the successful completion of our database conversion project. We had tried several different strategies and tools previously and none of them compared to Ispirer MnMTK. It was definitely money well spent."

"We were thrilled when we found out that the migration could be performed only in a few months taking into account the large amount of data that need to be converted and our specific requirements."

"We found the SQLWays product and the Ispirer Systems support staff to be an enormous asset and an exceptional value to our migration team. The interface with the entire Ispirer organization was seamless and extremely efficient."

"We have found the tool to be powerful, and robust, which has facilitated the smooth conversion of one of our core systems from Informix 7.3.1 running on a Sun Unix enviroment to an enviroment running Windows Server 2008 SQL Server 2008."
