Building your Modernization Strategy with Azure Migration

October 8, 2019

SQL Server 2008/R2 support ended on July 9, 2019. Now is the time to build your modernization strategy, with Solvaria’s help to make migration painless and guide you through upgrades and revisions. If you’re unsure of your database upgrade needs, we invite you to speak with one of our expert DBA’s.

Solvaria takes a three-step approach to building an Azure modernization strategy.

Assess: Solvaria takes a systematic look at your environment to determine what you have, where it is, what it does, and whether it’s a good candidate for moving to the cloud or upgrading on-premises. The Assess phase sets the stage for a successful migration by helping you understand the totality of your datacenter environment and reduce the risk of business disruption using a structured process. The output of the Assess phase is typically a list of the items you’ve discovered, ranked according to business impact and value.

Migrate: With the Assess phases completed, you’re ready to start migrating assets to the cloud or to a newer operating system on-premises. Solvaria’s team of experts will review the applications you’re currently running and determine if your organization has the capability to achieve your desired platform or cloud migration. We’ll will guide you through migration to ensure that your database environment stays protected and secure with minimal downtime.
Optimize: Once the Migrate phase is complete, you will want a smooth transition to the day-to-day realities of operating workloads in their new homes and—if moving workloads to Azure—managing subscriptions versus servers. Here, benefits of your move to Azure or the latest operating system start to accrue: cost savings from increased operational efficiencies and reduced capital expenditures, improved functionality, better security, and more flexibility.
