When demand increases, companies often worry about their infrastructure. Purchasing and implementing on-premise infrastructure, hardware, and software require huge upfront costs. So nowadays many organizations are moving to the cloud as a service to maintain their infrastructure. AWS offers various kinds of migration services based on your business requirements and type of services you need.
The data from the organization's existing database can be migrated to AWS quickly and securely. The data can be replicated with high availability and consolidate databases into a petabyte-scale data warehouse by streaming data to Amazon S3 or Amazon Redshift.
AWS offers Snowball to migrate petabyte-scale data from on-premises to AWS cloud. It is simple, fast, secure, and can cost you one-fifth the price of high-speed Internet. It addresses the common challenges with large-scale data transfers, transfer times, and security concerns.
Server Migration Service (SMS) is an agentless service which helps to migrate the on-premises workloads to AWS. With SMS, we can automate, schedule, and track incremental replications on live server volumes.
AWS DataSync is a data transfer service which transfers the data from on-premises storage to Amazon S3 or Amazon EFS (Elastic File System). The transfer speed of DataSync could be 10 times faster than open-source tools.
Planning is essential to migrate the data from on-premises to the cloud. AWS helps the enterprise customers to transfer the data into the cloud through its Application Discovery Service and MigrationHub. It collects the data and analyzes them using Amazon Athena and Amazon QuickSight before migration, thus helping you to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
