Data Center and Cloud Migration Tool

Data Center and Cloud Migration Wave Planning Tool

You have completed your discovery mapping effort and are now ready to move your systems and applications to the cloud or another data center. How do you determine which applications move together and when they should move? You may have hundreds or thousands of dependencies, volume limits, regulatory requirements, and business considerations to account for. Arbitrarily selecting systems to move could result in significant performance issues and accidentally bring down applications, and your business is expecting a seamless transition. Most organizations spend hundreds of hours manually identifying move groups or waves for a cloud or data center migration.

Wave Planning Tool

CTM Technology Group has developed a data center and cloud migration tool that automatically clusters applications into move groups and creates a migration schedule based on synchronous dependencies and business requirements. All the critical components of an application and dependent applications are identified and put into a cluster, such as database dependencies and related applications. Lower environments for an application are scheduled for migration prior to production. If critical financial systems cannot be migrated at the end of a quarter or the end of the month, this is factored into the scheduling. If your application or engineering resources are limited or on vacation during a period, this is addressed.

Data Center and Cloud Services

Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud all offer discovery tools and migration management tools, however, none of them provide a solution for developing a migration schedule incorporating your critical business rules. CTM Technology Group addresses this gap with our Migration Wave Planning Tool. We leverage our tool as a part of the data center and cloud migration services we provide, or we can deliver a migration schedule as an à la carte service.
