More and more businesses aim to migrate their on-premise enterprise applications to Azure Cloud to leverage the benefits of modern infrastructure. These enterprise applications have individual attributes that need special consideration. Many variables are included, from specific data-handling requirements to rules about security and compliance.


However, business owners are not sure of the actual processes and procedures involved in migration planning, managing, and scaling. HEX64 provides migration strategies for moving to the cloud..”


HEX64 uses the following migration consideration and methodology to help businesses migrate their enterprise applications to Azure Cloud.

1. Assess

There is a broad category of methodologies for evaluating an application’s current status. There are fewer for evaluating the application’s cloud willingness. Although some automated tools exist, including Microsoft’s Azure App Service Migration Assistant, each procedure involves checking the application parts for feasibility and appropriateness. We will concentrate primarily on four attributes: operating platform, data, connectivity, and security and compliance.

2. Platform

An application’s operating platform is a compilation of the several technologies needed to execute the application. Hardware, operating systems, application server subsystems, and the actual code for the application all connect to build the platform. And as we consider, migrating an application to the cloud, the technologies we are practicing may restrict the capability to migrate efficiently.
The main purpose of evaluating the platform is to know the functionality being implemented and the requirements it matches.

3. Data

Some of the applications exist without managing some kind of data. Big corporate data stores have traditionally remained housed in database management systems, such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and IBM’s DB2. But, enterprises frequently use No SQL data storage systems to take advantage of higher document-based storage. This is very true in situations that are undergoing a mismatch between entity representation in the application and storage of that entity in the persistence layer.

4. Connectivity

The obvious point is that users (and other servers) need to get access to resources across the environment. This indicates that connectivity outlining is a must, even in the easiest of application aspects. For instance, lack of sufficient bandwidth can be the main concern, particularly if you’re thinking a hybrid scenario where applications are in the cloud but data is stored on-premises or in a private cloud context. Depending on how much data you’re moving between on-premises and cloud, you may need to plan for increased bandwidth.

Our migration strategy follows 5 steps, which are captured below.

1. Analysis
2. App Migration
3. Storage Migration
4. Testing
5. Monitor and Decommission


With HEX64’s successful migration of applications to Azure cloud, applications should work their best on an ongoing basis and when demand shifts. Azure gives tools to manage the availability, performance, and usage of the applications.

Azure gives an extensive collection of configurable safety choices and the capacity to manage them so that we can customize security to match the requirements of the company’s deployments. We can go on an ongoing basis to obtain your security requirements and update security configuration across operations, applications, and data.
