Virtusa's expertise and experience in AWS Cloud Migration aided the client in establishing its first cloud migration factory. Virtusa developed an inline strategy after an initial discovery by identifying patterns and approaches for initiating migration to fulfill the cloud's security and compliance requirements. By prioritizing cloud strategy, cost optimization, and operational excellence, Virtusa followed a four-stage process:
- Cloud governance and migration requirement management: The discovery phase focused on questionnaires, tools, and workshops to find and map services, applications, and infrastructure across conventional, hybrid, and cloud data centers.
- Application assessment and prioritization: Development of an assessment report and a migration blueprint to guide further analysis and insights into the current and future landscapes.
- Creation of patterns and blueprints: Creation of "Blueprint As Code" to accelerate infrastructure provisioning by leveraging Infrastructure as Code (IaC) concepts.
- App migration and testing: Wave-based migration to minimize business impact, manage interdependencies and maximize resource utilization. Implementation and management of end-to-end migration using CI/CD pipeline migration to hybrid and multi-cloud environments, if any.
