Minimize risk, maximize performance

Migrations can be both complicated and resource-intensive and IT departments have to execute without error. There are many moving parts to address, including application dependencies, hardware, data integrity and availability requirements. The goal for any migration is to minimize risk to your business during the transition process.

Flexential offers comprehensive planning and implementation services to help you navigate these challenges. Our migration experts handle the execution of data center, cloud and service migrations.

We work closely with you to develop migration strategies for:

  • Infrastructure
  • Network connectivity
  • Applications
  • Data and security
  • Compliance requirements

Physical migration – Physical systems are often the most trying when migrating to a new IT environment. They are usually the remainders of older systems and processes, but they are necessary and critical to business operations. Moving these legacy systems without disruption is vital to the business.

Cloud migration – Migrating to the cloud requires a solid vetting process and an action plan. Business considerations include assessing the overall readiness of the organization for cloud migration, followed by a process and order of migrating applications. Technical considerations include the integration of cloud applications with others essential to the organization that may still reside on-site.

Service migration – Service migration ensures that an organization can easily shift between different facilities without encountering implementation, integration, compatibility and interoperability issues. Service migration concepts primarily deal with the process of effectively transferring or migrating a cloud-hosted application to another cloud provider or within a private cloud facility.
