AWS Migration Consulting Firm
perfect AWS Migration Consulting partner
Moving your business to the cloud takes immense attention to detail and detailed planning to achieve success. While many AWS consulting companies and organizations have tried the “lift and shift” method, time has often proven this to be a flawed approach at best, usually yielding questionable results. So if you’re reaching capacity at your company and thinking of moving your apps and services to the cloud via AWS (Amazon Web Services), you’ll need an expert AWS migration consultant partner to help set up your cloud infrastructure and migrate your business processes with low risk.
To begin with, you’ll want to source your consultant from the AWS Partner Network (APN) -- the global partner program for technology and consulting businesses who leverage Amazon Web Services to build solutions and services for clients. From there, here are the most important services you should look for in a potential AWS migration partner:
App and infrastructure migration
to AWS from anywhere, including your data center or another public cloud provider like Google Compute Engine, Rackspace or others.
Big data management capabilities
that help your cloud apps stream, store, and process vast amounts of data.
App dev services
to build and deploy resilient cloud applications at scale.
Rackspace or others.
Cloud managed services
for supporting and extending your current IT and operations teams.
Launching new infrastructure
and applications on AWS.
implementation to help ensure best practices for security implementation.
Automating your cloud infrastructure
with the latest tools from AWS and other similar services.
AWS pricing and related project costs
AWS pricing is unique in that it reduces your infrastructure costs by allowing you to pay only for what you use at the end of each month. AWS offers two main pricing models, Compute Resources and Data Storage and Transfer. However, your actual AWS migration firm will have their own separate costs related to migration services rendered.
The best AWS migration consultants will get to know all the variables in your project to anticipate budget range. They’ll work diligently to outline your unique needs and recommend specific AWS services that will be priced independently and transparently. The full costs of the project will include not just the AWS costs, but your . Other variables include:
If your desired AWS migration design involves complex functionality and detailed retrofitting to meet your new parameters (such as tight regulations within your industry), extra personnel and development time will be required, but your AWS migration consultant will advise.
Every migration project has different scalability requirements that need to be identified and scoped for as you work toward moving to the cloud. For example, with your AWS migration design goals, how many services are you looking to switch over? How much can be handled by your own IT dept?
Depending on how many services you’re trying to move over, as well as how complex those are and what regulations you’ll need to adapt to your AWS migration vendor will detail how those will affect budgets and timelines. If one of your goals is to spread workloads across multiple clouds while preserving connections between workloads, this adds complexity as well, but may be well worth the time and costs.
Reaching MVP (minimum viable product) is often just the first phase of any AWS migration project. Updates in business processes, regulations and requests for new features usually require additional coding to make sure your apps stay functional in the cloud.
An expert AWS migration developer will not just execute the migration services you need, but advise on how best to house it in the cloud as well. This goes back to your AWS migration consulting firm recommending only the appropriate and most efficient services in the first place, and making sure you’re not overpaying for ones you don’t need.

Avoiding project failure
Delivering industry-leading AWS migration services always involves potential obstacles. But by taking every precaution imaginable, it’s easier to avoid delays, frustrations and unnecessary budget overages. Aligning on expectations, timelines and logistics with your partner is 90% of the battle. In order to reach your expectations, we work with our clients to make sure they have the right support team on their end to ensure long-term viability. Be aware of the following factors:
Your AWS migration consultant needs to know your goals, related industry regulations, estimated budget and your approval process up-front to stay on track and avoid surprises.
If your partner feels the proposed timing is unrealistically tight to provide the best AWS migration services, the best move is to suggest an alternate timeline even before the project kicks off.
With an AWS migration consulting firm that believes in an iterative development process, you’ll see multiple iterations of the migration progress as you go, allowing check-ins throughout. Regular deliverables and demos ensure a healthy awareness of migration progress and a consistent feedback loop, so there are no surprises.
