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.

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.
